Regent Seven Seas Cruises has unveiled not just a new ship, Seven Seas Prestige, but also a new class of ships. Seven Seas Prestige will arrive in 2026, the first of this new class, with the company also revealing plans for a second ship by 2029.

The ship, which is being constructed in the famous Fincantieri shipyard in Italy will host up to 850 guests, 100 passengers more than an Explorer Class ship such as Seven Seas Explorer. The arrival of Prestige Class represents the cruise line’s first new class of ships in 10 years.

The line which boasts “the most luxurious fleet” is promising even more space per passenger and a completely reimagined owner’s suite. The current class of ship has a Picasso in the hallway of the owner’s suite and boasts 371 sq metres.

Andrea DeMarco, President of Regent Seven Seas Cruises: “This is a truly historic moment for Regent Seven Seas Cruises, as we name the next ship to join The World’s Most Luxurious Fleet as the Seven Seas Prestige and reveal her sleek exterior design.

“The Seven Seas Prestige, debuting in 2026, continues our legacy of revolutionizing ultra-luxury travel as she will transcend luxury in every way. This incredible new ship will be the epitome of timeless elegance, exemplifying Regent’s commitment to excellence, which is reflected in every aspect of her elevated design and exuding an ambiance of sophistication and refinement.”

DeMarco says space and intimacy were key factors to balance in the construction of the ship.

Unrivaled Space at Sea is a key pillar for Regent and a primary desire for luxury travelers. Seven Seas Prestige was designed with this in mind, maintaining the intimate and luxurious service our guests love, while also providing even more space throughout the ship, allowing for new suite categories and new experiences.”
