Regent Seven Seas Cruises (RSSC) has confirmed the bed of royalty – the Hästens Vividus – will once again be the showstopper for the Regent Suite aboard Seven Seas Grandeur when she debuts. A number of other new Regent Suite renders were also released today – keep reading to view them!
Bookings for Seven Seas Grandeur’s inaugural season of Caribbean and Mediterranean voyages in 2023/24 went on sale today [Thursday 23 September 2021]. Coinciding with the release, Regent Seven Seas unveiled further details of the design elements of the next Regent Suite.
At 413 square metres, and priced at a mind-blowing AU$14,000 (NZ$15,000) per night, the Regent Suite has a number of unique characteristics from those found on sister-ships Seven Seas Splendor and Seven Seas Explorer.
Details were revealed during an interview between RSSC’s President and CEO Jason Montague and Regent Suite designers, Studio DADO.
“With Seven Seas Grandeur’s Regent Suite, we have once again evolved the very art of luxury – the craftmanship and artistry of this design is incredible,” Montague remarked. “Studio DADO has married comfort, elegance and style in a fresh and exciting new way, while retaining the essence of the unrivaled Regent experience which our guests have enjoyed for close to 30 years.”
Regent Suite Features and Amenities
Every element of the cruise line’s third Regent Suite has been treated as a piece of art, from the highest quality textiles to hand-selected furnishings and custom art.
The suite features a master bedroom with an extravagant four-poster bed housing a Hästens Vividus mattress; two and a half marble and stone detailed bathrooms; and an expansive living room with a personalised bar set-up and dining room.
The suite also offers unobstructed 270-degree views from the 114 square metre wraparound veranda overlooking the bow of the ship. Guests can enjoy these stunning vistas either on deck in their very own Tresse Minipool, or in the new space, a glass-enclosed “Parlor” offering guests serene skylight relaxation.
The Regent Suite, which can host up to six guests, also has a separate guest bedroom with private bathroom. Additional features include three walk-in closets, and the exclusive use of a private dining room The Study – an up to 12-person dining experience – which is hidden between specialty restaurants Prime 7 and Chartreuse at the stern.
Guests of the Regent Suite can enjoy a vast range of complimentary and luxurious amenities including a dedicated personal butler, a personal car with driver and guide in every port, unlimited spa services in suite, unlimited laundry and dry cleaning, a selection of luxurious bed linens and pillow menu, a selection of aromatic suite fragrances, one sumptuous in-suite caviar service, daily canapés, personalised stationery, a shoe-shine service, free WiFi, and more.
Design Secrets of The Most Exclusive Address at Sea
Each Regent Suite is as distinct as it is breath-taking, offering its own personality and theme of design. The responsibility to create an authentic, unforgettable Regent Suite for Seven Seas Grandeur fell to Studio DADO’s founding partner Yohandel Ruiz, and, lead designer, June Cuadra.
“We imagined the Regent Suite on board Seven Seas Grandeur to be unique and different from previous vessels, capturing the curiosity and discerning eye of an art collector,” stated Ruiz.
Cuadra added, “We really envisioned the space as a gallery, where every piece of furniture, every finish material, every artwork has been painstakingly curated to make the space feel very inviting and welcoming.”
Moments of Luxury from Start to Finish
The artistic theme begins before the guest even sets foot in the palatial suite, where Italian marble has been used to create a beautiful archway around the entry-door creating excitement and anticipation for what lies beyond. Once the doors open, the dramatic hallway contrasts with the bright, sprawling suite revealing 180-degree ocean views.
Studio DADO has created more “moments” throughout the accommodation to heighten the overall experience. For example, an unexpected faux fireplace, with bronze flame, completes the sophisticated living area. Afternoon daydreaming or nighttime stargazing on twin chaise lounges is possible in the skylit, glass-enclosed “Parlor”, a new space for Seven Seas Grandeur’s Regent Suite.
Reimagined Master Bedroom and Master Bathroom
The master bedroom offers a visually distinct experience to previous Regent Suites. The bedroom features an extravagant four-poster bed housing a Hästens Vividus mattress. The artistry continues to envelop the design with a custom-made eglomise art panel by Confluence Studios crowning the head of the bed.
The interview unveiled never-before seen renderings of the ultimate luxury – the Regent Suite master bathroom, and in-suite spa. Studio DADO explained that they distinguished this area from previous Regent Suites by capitalising on the unrivalled ocean views, placing a “jewel-box” shower in the centre of the space and a jetted bathtub joining heated loungers adjacent to the window wall.
The bathroom offers guests a complete in-suite spa experience with a treatment area offering unlimited complimentary spa services, sauna, steam room and a choice of luxurious bath amenities including soaps and lotions from Bottega Veneta, Guerlain and L’Occitane, among a host of other beauty and wellbeing amenities.
Along with art, master craftsmanship is a key theme throughout the suite. Nowhere is this more evident than in the master bathroom, with a total of nine different types of marble used to create the his and her vanity units, the bathtub, heated loungers and much of the walls and floor.
Seven Seas Grandeur’s inaugural season begins November 2023 and will unlock the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, along with two transAtlantic voyages. Bookings are now open at RSSC.com/Seven-Seas-Grandeur.
Further details about the ship’s suites, restaurants, amenities, and onboard experiences will continue to be revealed.
