Regent Seven Seas Cruises has announced an order with Italy’s Fincantieri to build a new luxury cruise ship that will continue to set the standard for defining elegance at sea.
Third Explorer-Class Ship
Scheduled for delivery in late 2023, the new luxury ship will be a sister ship to the award-winning Seven Seas Explorer and Seven Seas Splendor. Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ sixth-all-suite vessel will accommodate up to 750 guests and further details about her itineraries, suites, restaurants, amenities and onboard experiences will be revealed leading up to her 2023 debut.
Voyages for the ship’s inaugural season will go on sale in 2021.
Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises said:
Since debuting in 2016, Seven Seas Explorer has solidified her reputation as the most luxurious ship ever built based on the continuous awards and guest accolades she earns. When Seven Seas Splendor’s inaugural season went on sale in April 2018 we set a new single-day booking record for our 26-year-old company, demonstrating the anticipation for her 2020 arrival. Each new ship is progressively more successful. Our growth is a reflection of the amazing people who work across our fleet, our valued shoreside employees, our loyal guests and their trusted travel advisors.
Over the past 12 months Regent Seven Seas Cruises has completed a $125 million remodeling of our fleet, started construction on Seven Seas Splendor™, unveiled our 2020-2021 Voyage Collection with 167 itineraries and new ports, introduced new relaxed outdoor evening dining venues on our ships, debuted the most immersive luxury Cuban voyage itineraries, revealed Go Local Tours and Regent Choice small group shore excursions, and now we announce one more category-defining luxury cruise ship. These are exciting times for everyone associated with Regent Seven Seas Cruises and we can’t wait to show you what’s next.
The contract price for the luxury cruise ship is approximately €475 million.
Seven Seas Splendor
Fincantieri is currently building Seven Seas Splendor at its Ancona, Italy shipyard and will be arriving in February 2020.
