First Ritz-Carlton Ship Launched

The first of the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection's fleet is floating at the Hijos De J. Barreras Shipyard in Vigo (Spain) today. The first unnamed ship was launched yesterday.

Because of its small size (24,000 tons, 298 passengers), it was built on land and then slid down rails into the water after a traditional blessing.
