Regent Seven Seas Cruises has announced the name of its new ship, scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2020: Seven Seas Splendor. The second Explorer-class ship will embody and enhance the high-end features and amenities that made sister-ship Seven Seas Explorer renowned as the most luxurious ship ever built with her launch in 2016.
“The naming of a ship is an important milestone in maritime tradition and it is my pleasure to announce that the name of Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ new ship to launch in 2020 is Seven Seas Splendor,” said Jason Montague, president and CEO of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “The extraordinary demand for Seven Seas Explorer has reinforced our decision to expand our fleet and Seven Seas Splendor will offer guests a fifth option that will provide unforgettable experiences in the world’s most compelling destinations, with the incredibly high standards of luxury and service that lure guests back again and again.”
As part of the naming process, Regent Seven Seas Cruises sought suggestions from its valued travel agents, loyal guests and employees for the ship’s name in a sweepstakes held in September. Seven Seas Splendor was chosen among nearly 2600 unique names from more than 14,000 submissions.
The new all-suite, all-balcony ship will have a gross tonnage of 55,254 and capacity of 750 guests.
