Regent Seven Seas Orders New Ship

Earlier this week, Regent Seven Seas, a luxury cruise line based in Doral, ordered their largest, most luxurious ship to date. Regent has entered into the contract with Fincantieri Yards and aims to place the ship in service by summer of 2016.

Regent Seven Seas has released some details on the new ship, which will be named Seven Seas Explorer. The Seven Seas Explorer will accommodate 738 guests in 369 verandah suites. In addition, the new ship will also feature an array of amenities for guests to enjoy, including six open-seating gourmet restaurants, Regent’s signature nine-deck atrium, the two-story Explorer Theater, three boutiques and an expansive Canyon Ranch SpaClub. The ship will have a gross registered tonnage of 54,000 and will cost Regent Seven Seas $450 million. The Seven Seas Explorer will be both Regent’s largest and most expensive ship ever built.

“This new ship order represents an exciting time of growth for our company as we build the next generation of cruise ships for the world’s most inclusive luxury cruise line,” said Frank J. Del Rio, Prestige Cruise Holdings Chairman and CEO. “Seven Seas Explorer will be the most luxurious cruise ship ever built, boasting one of the highest space ratios and staff-to-guest ratios ever seen in the modern era of cruising enabling us to deliver the highly personalized service and extraordinary experience that is the hallmark of the Regent brand.”

With the new Seven Seas Explorer, Regent’s passenger capacity will grow by 40% and will make Regent Seven Seas the largest luxury cruise line in the world.
