There’s really no shortage of places to stretch out and relax for guests of the Regent Suite on the newly launched Seven Seas Splendor. At 1,355 square metres, it is after all billed as the largest suite on the sea, and sits on Deck 14 above the ship’s bridge, offering unobstructed 270-degree vistas of the oceans ahead.
Guests of this US$11,000-per-night suite have a number of seating and relaxation options from which to perch themselves as they cruise the world, both indoor and outdoor, from multiple luxurious sofas, to lounges on their private deck, to heated sun lounges in their private solarium, the sauna (if you’re into sweating), the six-seat dining table, armchairs surrounding the minibar and even a marble encased bathtub. And if that’s not enough, there is of course the US$200,000 Hästans Vividus bed.
Should Regent Suite guests wish to exit their virtual palace on the water to dine at any of Seven Seas Splendor‘s many speciality and fine-dining restaurants, they are provided guaranteed reservations available to them at the time and night of their choice.
Additionally, the cruise line’s very top VIPs have the option of dining with their travelling companions, friends and family in their very own private alcove known as The Study. Quizzed recently by LATTE on what his favourite spot was on the newly christened 750-guest ship, Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ President and CEO Jason Montague highlighted this space, located at the opposite end of the ship, and somewhat hidden away.
Wedged between two signature restaurants – Prime 7 and Chartreuse – at the stern of the ship on Deck 10, The Study is accessed from either restaurant via a small passage way and sliding door. Accommodating up to 10 guests, when LATTE entered this luxurious space it was configured with a table for 11, and a separate table for two positioned at the extreme rear of the venue and looking out to sea.
Adorning the walls of this marble-floored space are paintings and prints (part of the US$5 million onboard art collection), multiple bookshelves lined with artefacts, a replica fireplace, wall lamps and more.
Regent Suite guests can utilise The Study to host a private dining experience, such as cocktails or fine-dining, for up to 10 people, with menu selections from the neighbouring Prime 7 or Chartreuse. Guests can also request that chefs prepare any non-menu dishes that take their fancy.
The Study is also available on Seven Seas Splendor‘s sister ship, Seven Seas Explorer, which launched in 2016.
