I had no idea about this but certainly could combine two hobbies at once. What are your thoughts?
Ritz-Carlton Is Fixing Everything You Hate About Cruise Ships - Bloomberg
The Ritz has sent out a couple of promotional emails about these cruise ships that are being built. Two things are for sure, they will be very luxurious and very expensive. Start saving your pennies!
Bummed I have not been sent anything from them. I probably can't afford one day let alone a week but...there is always lottery winnings!.
From $6000+ a week per person... I hope we can use points
Scary but IF I win the lottery..massive points :-)
Yes a lot of points
Better think long and hard before signing up. We did back in May at a cost of $21,000. Last week we were notified that our February voyage had been cancelled because the ship was still being worked on in the European shipyard. We are now in the process of "negotiating" our refund. I had been promised they would do an ACH transfer to my checking account. Instead they applied a credit to the credit card we had used. It would take us about 7 or 8 months to burn through a credit of that magnitude. Since then I learned that the cancellation should not have come as a surprise since there were reports in the European press back in June that the project was not going to meet the schedule. Further, the same sources say the new projected launch date for June 2020 is in doubt. My suspicion is Ritz Carlton allowed a third party to use their name and reputation (for a fee, no doubt) without imposing the usual Ritz Carlton quality control. Extremely disappointing and it shakes my confidence in Ritz Carlton.
I had 2 booked for 2020 and just ended up rescheduling. Didn't see it as a big deal as delays in ship building are common. Didn't care for a refund since we definitely want to go on these trips.
RC does not build ships so I'm sure the delivery date impacts were a setback for them as well. Looking forward to these trips that will be amazing with the RC service levels we have grown to expect.
