Ritz Carlton Yacht Collection - points?

So the RC Yacht Collection is now taking reservations for cruises beginning in 2020. And I really only have one question, the most important question: Can points be earned or redeemed for these?

For those who are too lazy to check on weblink.

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection offers the freedom to explore lifeís most extraordinary experiences. Shortly, we will announce loyalty benefits for members of Marriott Rewards, Ritz-Carlton Rewards, and SPG. We look forward to recognizing our valued loyalty members and welcoming you aboard your private yachting oasis.

They've had that up for at least six months now. Still no information.

They said they would have a loyalty program a while ago, but it's not clear if it will be separate from Marriott's program. What I want to know is when will the Ritz Carlton Reserve properties join the Marriott Rewards program? All-suite properties such as the St Regis Maldives and St Regis Bora Bora participate, and I'm sure those are on par with the Ritz Carlton Reserve properties. They should also remove the regular Ritz Carlton properties (such as the one in St Thomas) from Category 8 down to Category 7 as those are not on par with the likes of the St Regis Maldives or Ritz Carlton Reserve properties.

If this is an option to redeem points, assuming the redemption rates are decent, it could be a nice redemption!

Still in the works is how you can use your Marriott Rewards points. A typical one-week cruise is pegged at $5,600 per person and each ship only holds 298 people, sometimes less as a number of single cabin suites can be combined into larger suites through movable walls. Prothero says it will likely end up you can use points for spa treatments, dining at Aqua, which is an additional charge or shore excursions, also not included. It’s unlikely you will earn points for cruising, but that’s not been finalized.
Highlighting mine -- this is from a few months ago - but didn't sound likely.

Even if you can use points to book a trip, MAR (and most other chains) only allow booking 330 days out & since RCY isn't available until 2020, no one can book.

Mods - IIRC there was a (master?) thread in the RC forum that perhaps this thread could be merged into (and said thread might be in this forum now that the forums are merged).

Cheers.

I hope they will have decent redemption rates! Part of me wants to be sceptical, but the rational part says that they're only charging at most 100k points per night for the St Regis Bora Bora, whereas I thought that would charge 360k points/night since SPG charged 120k. So, they may again surprise us with this redemption rate. We'll see 😊
