Regent Seven Seas Cruises has welcomed Seven Seas Splendor to its fleet. Delivered last Friday [31 January] at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Ancona, Italy, Regent’s fifth ship builds on the cruise line’s rich 28-year heritage offering guests ‘An Unrivaled Experience’ with every luxury included.
At 55,254 gross tons and 225 metres in length, Seven Seas Splendor accommodates 750 guests in 375 suites, ranging from 93.5 to 1,355 square metres. Lavishly designed public spaces include five exquisite and unique restaurants and three elegant bars and lounges, while a $5 million curated art collection, more than 500 crystal chandeliers, and over an acre of Italian marble complement the ship’s sophistication.
“Wherever you turn on Seven Seas Splendor, you will be surrounded by elegance, comfort and hospitality,” said Jason Montague, President and Chief Executive Officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
“Luxury travellers have anticipated this stunning new ship for more than two years. The day she opened for reservations was the busiest booking day in our company’s history.”
Helmed by Captain Serena Melani, the first female captain to take charge of a brand-new ocean cruise ship, Seven Seas Splendor sails her first official voyage on 6 February, 2020 from Barcelona, Spain to Miami, Florida. The ship will be christened on 21 February, 2020 by her Godmother, the legendary supermodel and actress Christie Brinkley, at a ceremony in PortMiami.
Following her christening event, Seven Seas Splendor cruises the tropical paradises of the Caribbean and Mexican Riviera, which includes two crossings of the Panama Canal and one unique Southern Caribbean cruise from Miami to New York City. In spring, Seven Seas Splendor will traverse the Atlantic Ocean once more for its inaugural European season, offering cultural and historically rich ports of call in one of the world’s most popular regions, the Mediterranean.
