Ten different dining experiences will be featured on the luxury vessel, all of which will be overseen by Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection's culinary director, Chef Matthieu Godard, alongside Executive Chef Lee Goble, who will lead Evrima's culinary team.

"From the very beginning, we have put the guest experience at the forefront of everything we have created, and the culinary offerings onboard Evrima play an integral role in placing The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection in a league of its own," said Douglas Prothero, CEO of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, in a statement. "Offering 10 different dining experiences is not only impressive for a yacht of our size, but also gives us more opportunities to connect with guests...."
Godard has, in the past, served as culinary director and executive corporate chef for Bagatelle restaurants worldwide. Goble has previously led culinary teams for Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas and The Ritz-Carlton Rose Hall, Jamaica, and has served onboard the culinary teams for Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises.
The first of three planned luxury yachts, Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection's Evrima set sail in June 2020.

(3:45 p.m. BST) -- P&O Cruises has updated two major dates for its fleet, announcing that Iona will be arriving before autumn and its sister ship will be delivered in December 2022.

The sister ship is yet unnamed and will also be built at Meyer Werft. Itineraries will go on sale in spring 2021.
