Rihanna's vacation on the Benetti Latitude mega-yacht

Barbados singing sensation Rihanna took a break from her hectic schedule to herself, and to her close associates to aboard the Benetti Latitude luxury yacht. The 172 ft. wonder is known to have all amenities for a perfect vacation in water, and also pamper to the guests’ every need, henceforth is also costing the singing sensation $300,000 a week, enjoying her vacation on it. All of 5 decks, the charter yacht was created in 2007 by Italian shaping yard Benetti, whose stylish and earthy designs are displayed all over the boat.

The boat was hired by Rihanna, after the conclusion of her tours in the United Kingdom, which put her back on the top of musical charts once again. Her personal entrouge, along with her seemed to be soaking in every festive and luxurious comfort of the boat, apart from enjoying the Caribbean water without caring very much for onlookers. Facilities on board the yacht include 2 dressing rooms, and a spa which could cater to most whims and fancies of the passengers. Helping the cause is the accompanying staff of 15, who can cater to 12 guests with perfect ease. The main deck has the master suite which has its own studio and bathroom, completely sheltered in privacy from the rest. There are several spaces for dining including the formal dining room, and also a flamenco dining space. For recreation, there are facilities for sunbathing on the open spaces of the fly deck, and also rubber boats for indulging in water sporting activities. Hopefully for Rihanna’s male fans, she appeared in her swim suit on the deck soaking in the sun.

The notable feature about the interiors is the earthy tones and colors throughout. Also, the design of the yacht is uniquely done so that there is ample opportunity of sunlight and air to ventilate the insides, and also blend artistically with the ambience. The best examples of that are the guest accommodations. While reviewing Rihanna’s cruise, we were given flashbacks of the P-Diddy vacation on the ‘Soulmates’ mega-yacht. Though a bit bigger than this one, Soulmates perhaps had a bit more in terms of luxury than this one. As for us, we are happy admiring the vessels and their superstar passengers for now.
