Ultra-luxury line Regent Seven Seas has floated out its newest ship, the Seven Seas Splendor.
Celebrating with a ceremonial champagne christening, she has moved from the building dry dock to the sea.
She’s now in the final stage of construction and the interior spaces include 375 lavish suites, elegant lounges and gourmet restaurants. She will be the fifth ship sailing in the Regent Seven Seas fleet and the Seven Seas Splendor will be sailing from February 2020.
“One year from now, guests will begin immersing themselves in elegance and hospitality, while fully discovering the hundreds of destinations around the world Seven Seas Splendor travels, returning home at day’s end to the exquisite comfort and care on board with every luxury included,” said Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “I’m excited for our guests to experience how Seven SeasSplendor will perfect luxury.”
At approximately 55,000 gross-registered tonnes and carrying only 750 guests, Seven Seas Splendor will boast one of the highest space ratios and staff-to-guest ratios in the cruise industry. She features the Regent Suite, which will be the largest suite constructed on a luxury cruise ship with 293 square-metres of interior accommodation and a 120 square-metre wraparound veranda, complete with an in-suite spa retreat showcasing a personal sauna, steam room and treatment area with unlimited spa treatments, unobstructed 270-degree views over the ship’s bow and a glass-enclosed solarium sitting area on top of the bridge for a Captain’s view.
Regent Suite guests enjoy a dedicated personal butler to manage all the details of the guests’ experience, a personal car with driver and guide in every port, and the exquisite comfort of a custom, hand-crafted US$200,000 Vividus bed from the renowned Hästens brand.
The comfort and style found in the Regent Suite sets the tone for all suite categories on board, where guests will enjoy the most indulging accommodation and the largest balconies in the cruise industry.
The 14 other suite categories range from 27 square-metres to 195 square-metres – all elegant, plush and stunning. Throughout the ship, abundant crystal chandeliers, vibrant paintings and sculptures, imported Italian marble and custom-designed, hand-crafted furnishings will create captivating surroundings for guests.
A limited number of suites are available for sailings during Seven Seas Splendor’s inaugural season. Visit www.RSSC.com.
