Regent Seven Seas Cruises celebrated 30 years of its storied history of elevating ocean travel as the leading luxury cruise experience on 26 May 2022. To honour the last three decades, Regent Seven Seas Cruises has curated an enhanced collection of unique 30th Anniversary Voyages in Africa, Alaska, Asia, Canada & New England, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, Northern Europe and South America.
“We are incredibly excited to be celebrating our pearl anniversary, three decades of setting the standard in luxury travel, and I cannot wait to see what the next 30 years will bring,” said Jason Montague, President and Chief Executive Officer, Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “This wouldn’t be possible without the ongoing support from our incredible team both shipboard and shoreside, loyal guests and valued Travel Partners.”
Three decades ago, Regent Seven Seas Cruises, formally known as Diamond Cruises and then Radisson Seven Seas Cruises, introduced a new era of all-inclusive luxury cruising with the world’s first twin-hulled cruise ship, the 350-guest Radisson Diamond. In 1999, the luxury cruise line welcomed Seven Seas Navigator and in 2001 the world’s first all-suite, all-balcony ship, Seven Seas Mariner was launched. In 2003, the brand added a third ship to its fleet, Seven Seas Voyager®. Three years later, the company rebranded to Regent Seven Seas Cruises to position it as the leading luxury cruise line
In July 2013, Regent Seven Seas Cruises announced it would build the world’s most luxurious ship in the modern era of cruising, Seven Seas Explorer. Accommodating 732-guests, Seven Seas Explorer marked the luxury line’s third all-suite, all-balcony ship which debuted in July 2016 and was christened by Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene of Monaco.
In February 2020, sister ship Seven Seas Splendor®, the ship that perfects luxury, made her debut featuring almost US$5 million curated fine art collection. The brand’s next vessel to welcome past and future guests will be Seven Seas Grandeur™. The ship will exemplify Regent’s heritage of perfection and makes her inaugural sailing in late 2023.
“I’ve been with Regent from the very beginning when we were constructing our first ship in 1992. Since then, many ships have been built, each one setting a new standard for luxury cruising,” said Senior Vice President of Hotel Operations Franco Semeraro. “I couldn’t be prouder to have been part of such an incredibly talented team with so many successes over the past 30 years and I truly look forward to what’s to come as we continue to elevate the luxury experience.”
