The new Regent Seven Seas Cruises luxury ship celebrated a major construction milestone last weekend as she floated from the building dry dock to touch the sea for the first time. Now buoyant at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Ancona, Italy, final-stage construction on Seven Seas Splendor will focus on her interior spaces including 375 lavish suites, elegant lounges and gourmet restaurants that will all represent luxury perfected. The fifth ship in Regent’s fleet sets sail in February 2020.
“One year from now, guests will begin immersing themselves in elegance and hospitality, while fully discovering the hundreds of destinations around the world Seven Seas Splendor travels, returning home at day’s end to the exquisite comfort and care on board with every luxury included,” said Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “I’m excited for our guests to experience how Seven Seas Splendor will perfect luxury.”
At approximately 55,000 gross-registered tons and carrying only 750 guests, Seven Seas Splendor will boast one of the highest space ratios and staff-to-guest ratios in the cruise industry. She features the Regent Suite, which will be the largest suite constructed on a luxury cruise ship with more than 3,000 square-feet of interior accommodations and a 1,300 square-foot wraparound veranda with all luxury facilities.
