Regent Seven Seas Cruises, a leading luxury ocean cruise line, has announced that it will build a sister ship to the award-winning Seven Seas Explorer, “the most luxurious ship ever built,” and Seven Seas Splendor, currently under construction and scheduled for an early 2020 debut.
Regent has again tapped Italy’s Fincantieri S.p.A. to build this new cruise ship, with delivery scheduled in late 2023.
Accommodating up to 750 guests, the intimate and spacious new ship will be Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ sixth-all-suite vessel. Regent will release details about her itineraries, suites, restaurants, amenities and onboard experiences leading up to her 2023 debut.
Both Seven Seas Explorer and Seven Seas Splendor boast one of the highest space ratios and staff-to-guest ratios in the cruise industry. Since its debut, Seven Seas Explorer has received numerous awards and guest accolades. Seven Seas Splendor set a new single-day booking record for Regent when it went on sale in April 2018.
“Each new ship is progressively more successful. Our growth is a reflection of the amazing people who work across our fleet, our valued shoreside employees, our loyal guests and their trusted travel advisors,” said Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
Voyages for the new ship’s inaugural season will go on sale in 2021.
In addition to construction on Seven Seas Splendor, over the past 12 months Regent has completed a $125 million remodeling of its fleet, unveiled their 2020-2021 Voyage Collection featuring 167 itineraries and new ports, and introduced their new Go Local Tours bespoke shore excursions.
