The high-end cruise vessel Evrima anchored in front of Dubrovnik's historic Old Town offering its passengers unrivaled views of the famous UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Evrima set sail on her maiden voyage in October 2022, marking a new era of yacht-style cruising. The luxury ship was welcomed by leading regional destination management company, Adriatic DMC which is the port agent and ground operations partner for the cruise's Shore Collection excursions in Dubrovnik.
Envisioned to perfectly blend the lifestyle of The Ritz-Carlton resorts with the casual freedom of a yachting vacation, Evrima, the first of three custom-built yachts from The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, delivers highly tailored getaways for travelers seeking to wholly immerse themselves in the culture of each destination.
“The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection is revolutionizing the luxury cruising industry, creating an entirely unique category designed for those in search of unmatched getaways, highly curated itineraries, insider access, and a level of personalization previously unseen in the space,” commented Douglas Prothero, director and strategic advisor at The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, “Every element of the luxury yachting experience was considered when designing and creating Evrima, and we are excited to deliver unforgettable journeys for both longtime cruisers and those who are new to the industry.”
In each destination, guests can choose from a selection of exclusive experiences within The Shore Collection that align with their interests or utilize the services of the Concierge Ashore to customize their own private tours. By working with local guides selected for their insider knowledge, guests enjoy a highly personalized and immersive journey while exploring the culture of each destination.
Managing director at Adriatic DMC, Srdjan Kristic remarked on Evrima’s long-anticipated arrival, “Being chosen by a brand as distinguished as Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection as both its port agent and to handle its shore excursion program is an honor and a bar-raising moment for Dubrovnik as a port.
"Our reputation as a destination management company that delivers the highest levels of service with unmatched professionalism offered us this opportunity and I’m confident that the team and our partners will rise to the challenge today.”
Passengers were able to choose between seven excursions specially developed for Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection by Adriatic DMC from cooking classes at a 15th-century farmhouse to a speed boat tour of a breathtaking blue grotto and pristine beaches or biking through Dubrovnik's picturesque countryside.
