Upon opening reservations for its newest luxury ship, Seven Seas Splendor, Regent Seven Seas Cruises had the best single booking day in the brand’s 26-year history, accounting for a 32% increase over the previous all-time high on inaugural season launch day for Seven Seas Explorer® in January 2015. Locally, reservations for Seven Seas Splendor saw the biggest booking day since the Regent Seven Seas Cruises office opened in Sydney in April 2016. With the highly anticipated ship as the driving force, the company not only saw record bookings for her inaugural season, but they also had strong reservations across the other four ships in the fleet, Seven Seas Explorer, Seven Seas Navigator®, Seven Seas Mariner® and Seven Seas Voyager®.
“The response to Seven Seas Splendor’s inaugural season has been incredible, bringing in even more bookings than the Explorer did on her launch day, proving that the demand among both past and new guests continues to grow,” said Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings senior vice president and managing director, Asia Pacific, Steve Odell. “It’s especially encouraging that we’ve only released Splendor’s first 10 voyages; I’m looking forward to seeing our guests’ reactions when we announce the 2020-21 schedule later this year.”
“We want to thank our local trade partners for all their support, which has been integral to the successful launch of Seven Seas Splendor’s inaugural season. We look forward to continuing on this journey with our local partners to continue to grow the Australian and New Zealand markets,” added Mr. Odell
When Seven Seas Splendor launches in 2020, it will deliver a new level of elegance to the cruise industry and perfect the luxury experience for travellers. Guests will enjoy awe-inspiring public spaces as well as 375 beautifully appointed, all-balcony suites ranging from the 28-square-metre entry-level Veranda Suite, to the lavish 412-square-metre Regent Suite. Every part of the ship has a distinctive look, all featuring intricate design details that create an aesthetically stunning and relaxing environment for guests as they sail through some of the most desirable destinations in the Mediterranean, Caribbean and North America.
Reservations for the Seven Seas Splendor’s inaugural season are open, with the first sailing beginning on 7 February 2020.
