About Aman at Sea Cruises

Aman is the exclusive and luxury hospitality brand that was founded in 1988 with the opening of the Amanpuri beach resort in Phuket, Thailand. Since then, Aman has grown to have a chain of 35 hotels, resorts and private residences across the world. It focuses on offering guests serene environments in which to relax, recharge and explore different destinations.

In 2018 it introduced a skincare range, inspired by its Aman Spas, and also has health supplements, fragrances and a clothing collection.

Aman has a traditional wooden 10-passenger vessel, Amandira, which sails in Indonesia. In 2021 Aman announced that it would enter the world of ocean cruising with the launch of a 600-foot, 100-passenger vessel. The project is a joint venture with Cruise Saudi, which was also formed in 2021 with the aim of positioning Saudi Arabia as a premier global cruise destination.

Aman at Sea, which is scheduled to launch in 2027, is being constructed at the T. Mariotti shipyard in Italy and has been designed by superyacht specialist Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design, based in the Netherlands.

The ship will have 50 suites with balconies, an Aman Spa, watersports platform and two helicopters. The vessel's design will pay homage to Aman's eastern heritage and feature a design philosophy in keeping with the brand's resorts, hotels and lifestyle ethos.

Aman says the ship --which will be given an official name closer to the launch date -- will mirror the level of detail and care experienced across Aman's hotels.

Aman Group CEO Vlad Doronin said the move into cruising represented a "strategic evolution" of the brand to offer "exceptional travel experiences which deliver Aman's core values of privacy, peace, generosity of space and unparalleled service."

Aman at Sea Cruises Tips, Activities, and Overview

Who goes on Aman at Sea cruise ships?

Aman at Sea will appeal to anyone who is a fan of Aman hotels and might never have taken a cruise before. The ship will provide a very similar lifestyle experience to staying in an Aman property. Passengers are likely to be well-traveled and well-informed couple and singles interested in culture, authentic and personalised small group shore tours and cruising with high levels of comfort and personal service.

Do I have to dress up on a Aman at Sea cruise?

It is unlikely Aman at Sea will have formal dress codes or black tie nights as the ship has been designed to echo the style and atmosphere of Aman's hotels. By day passengers will likely wear comfortable resort-style attire and change into something smarter and more chic for the evening.

Is everything free on Aman at Sea cruises?

Full details of Aman at Sea's pricing structure have yet to be announced. However, it is expected that there will be a high number of inclusions. Aman's Amandira -- a traditional two-masted 10-passenger sailing vessel that offers bespoke voyages in Indonesia -- includes all gourmet meals, non-alcoholic beverages and shore tours, so passengers on Aman at Sea can probably expect the same or more. For-fee activities will likely include extras such as diving and trips on the vessel's two helicopters.

What are Aman at Sea’s most popular activities?

The yacht is expected to explore global destinations, and the size of the vessel means it will be able to moor in harbours and ports which are inaccessible to larger cruise ships. In ports of call, passengers can expect in-depth and customized excursions in each destination visited. Back onboard Aman at Sea there is a relaxing sun deck and branded Aman Spa, while adventurous travelers can book a helicopter trip.

Best for: Luxe-lovers who enjoy staying in upscale resorts and boutique hotels, curious travelers that want to sail in a calm and intimate environment.

Not for: Budget cruisers, young families and folks that like big cruise ships with waterparks and non-stop entertainment.
