The Evrima carries 298 guests, has 149 suites and will have the highest staff to guest ratio in the cruise industry. As guests are familiar with The Ritz-Carlton on land, Evrima will feature the same personalized service, elevated dining and luxury amenities at sea.
First, however, let’s get you outfitted for your cruise. For the ladies, shop at Marissa Collections on Third Street South. Choose from over 100 top designers from Oscar de la Renta, Brunello Cucinelli and more. Complete your look from their favorite jewelry collections in The Jewelry Gallery. You can also take advantage of the finest in personal styling services, including make-up and skincare. Whether you need clothing, handbags or accessories, you’ll leave Marissa Collections in the height of fashion.
For the men, outfit yourselves in style at élevée, the premier destination in Naples for the well-dressed man. élevée specializes in bespoke clothing, a process taking several fittings over the course of a few weeks. When it’s complete, you’ll take away an outfit that perfectly fits not only your body but your personality as well.
Flaunt your stylish new pieces as you step onboard the Evrima. You’ll stay in a Signature Suite, which includes a luxurious living and dining area, double vanity bathroom with separated bathtub and stand-up shower, a private and spacious terrace overlooking the ocean, a minibar provisioned to your preferences and a Personal Concierge to ensure you have a seamless journey from beginning to end.
Dining aboard the Evrima is an event, and all restaurants are included in the cruise fare with the exception of the specialty dining restaurant, S.E.A.
The Evrima Room offers a thoughtfully designed balance of privacy and social connection, with a menu of locally inspired creations changed daily to reflect the itinerary and passing scene. The additional dining venues included in the cruise fare are: Talaat Nam offers creative interpretations of Southeast Asian cuisine in a sophisticated and contemporary restaurant. Mistral is for lunch or a romantic dinner al fresco. The seafood bar features fresh local catches while prime cuts are prepared to order from the grill. The Pool House, located directly in front of the aft pool on Deck Five, offers anything from a leisurely breakfast for early risers to late-night dining. At the Living Room is a casual eatery serving a variety of cuisines prepared à la minute. Baristas will serve freshly brewed coffees from the espresso counter where a selection of pastries will be available. Ready-made treats are also available for day trips and late nights as well as a signature contemporary tea service. The Marina Terrace serves drinks and light bites served just steps above The Marina while at anchor. The Bar is an intimate cocktail lounge serving top labels from around the world, as well as premium Champagnes, Single Malts and Sake.
Should they choose, each couple will have the option to enjoy at least two dinners at specialty dining venue S.E.A. through your onboard credit. This onboard specialty restaurant allows you to indulge in a dining experience designed by chef Sven Elverfeld of Aqua, the Three Michelin-starred restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg. The five-course culinary journey is inclusive of pre-selected wines and Champagnes from The Private Reserve List.
From your Personal Concierge to every member of the staff, service aboard the Evrima adheres to The Ritz-Carlton Gold Standard: seamless and intuitive, with an unwavering commitment to excellence. Every detail on board will be handled flawlessly, giving you the freedom to relax and enjoy a sense of ease frequently missing from the everyday world.
The yacht incorporates all the elements of a luxury resort, including a full-service spa and a fitness studio with an integrated wellness program. In-house classical and jazz musicians provide personal performances in many onboard venues. In addition to discussions led by renowned experts and lecturers, the enrichment program includes partnerships with local arts and music communities. Plus, there are no formal nights on board and the dress code is Yacht Casual.
Each couple will receive $3,000 an on board credit, which can be used toward pre-created or private excursions. The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection offers pre-selected excursions of intimate group sizes, or the Concierge Ashore can transform most tours into a private experience or craft an exclusive bespoke event just for you. From savoring award-winning cuisines with a local chef to walking through a lavender field to distill your own perfume, the world is yours onboard Evrima.
The first port you’ll visit will be Funchal, the capital and largest city on the island of Madeira. Explore the Old Town on the east side with its historic architecture or visit the more developed west side of the city with attractions such as the Casino Gardens, Quinta das Cruzes Museum and bustling Carriera Street. You’ll want to experience the world-famous Madeira wine and book a tasting at one of the major wine lodges. For the adventurous, take a high-tech cable car up to Monte and descend to Funchal in a traditional toboggan—reaching speeds of 48 mph!
Next, you’ll visit Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands. Dig your toes in the sand at beaches in the towns of Adeje or Arona, hike among the vegetation and lava flows in Corona Forestal Nature Park, enjoy a dip in the saltwater pools at Lago Martiánez or discover local history and culture in San Cristobal de la Laguna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Serenity will wash over you during a stroll through the flora of the La Orotava Acclimatisation Gardens, established in 1788, while a visit to Loro Parque offers a look at more than 4,000 parrots, as well as gorillas, hippos, lions, jaguars and more.
Best of all, your journey doesn’t end when you reach Barbados. You’ll be transported by private jet to Canouan Island in Saint Vincent & The Grenadines, a paradise of rolling green hills and breathtaking beaches. It is known as the place where the billionaires hide from the millionaires.
You’ll spend three nights in a spacious, 1,300 square-foot Oceanfront Suite at the Mandarin Oriental, with butler service and direct beach access. Each person will enjoy a round of golf at The Canouan Golf Club, the only championship 18-hole golf course in the Grenadines. The par-72 Jim Fazio course is played over two nine-hole loops, with the front nine meandering around the bay for epic views of the beaches and reef, and the second nine climbing up the hillside, presenting you with more incredible vistas of Canouan and the surrounding islands. It also has one of the world’s longest par-3s at 305 yards. A sundowner at the 13th hole is an unmissable treat.
While on property, you will also be treated to a three-course dinner at either Asianne Restaurant or Tides Bar + Grill. East meets West at Asianne, a Pan-Asian gem featuring the richly textured flavors of Indonesia and Thailand combined with unique Caribbean twists. Beautifully decorated in rich, jewel-tones of deep blue and golden yellow, Asianne centers around an impressively equipped open kitchen with a tandoor brick oven and cobalt blue Molteni stove from France.
Tides Bar + Grill serves the best from land and sea, using the finest ingredients, locally sourced delicacies, catches-of-the-day and freshly picked vegetables. Fashioned after an elegantly casual residential lounge, Tides Bar + Grill’s dining room showcases serene ocean views, and when weather permits, the terrace welcomes guests with al fresco dining under the stars. The menu features traditional and inventive dishes with a subtle Caribbean twist.
To experience the ultimate in exclusive luxury on this exceptional journey, raise your paddle high!
