Starting today Marriott Bonvoy members will be able to earn and redeem points for voyages with The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection.

Evrima, the first yacht, is set to debut May 2022 in the Mediterranean.

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection is the latest accommodation under Marriott Bonvoy, joining 30 hotel brands with 7,900 properties across 138 countries and territories, including the company’s all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean, and in addition to 44,000 premium and luxury vacation rentals from Homes and Villas by Marriott International.

Five points per $1 spend

With The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, Marriott Bonvoy members earn five points per $1 spend on the cruise fare only, as well as on the hotel package rate for participating Marriott Bonvoy hotels booked through The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection.

Points for savings on the cruise fare

Members can redeem an initial 180,000 points toward a $1,000 savings on the cruise fare, and increments of 90,000 points may be redeemed toward a $500 savings thereafter. Full redemption may be available.

Members will receive one elite night credit per night toward achieving higher Elite status.

The cruise fare and hotel package rate will be applied toward the annual qualifying spend for members striving for Marriott Bonvoy Ambassador Elite status.

Members can accelerate the points earned on their voyage purchase and more when using their Marriott Bonvoy co-branded credit cards from JPMorgan Chase and American Express.
