Regent Seven Seas Cruises has announced an order with Italy’s Fincantieri S.p.A. to build another stunning cruise ship that will continue to set the standard for defining elegance at sea.
With delivery scheduled in late 2023, the new vessel will be a sister ship to the award-winning Seven Seas Explorer , the most luxurious ship ever built, and Seven Seas Splendor, the ship that perfects luxury.
Accommodating up to 750 guests, the intimate and spacious new ship will be Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ sixth-all-suite vessel. 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.
“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,” said Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “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.”
The contract price for the vessel is approximately €475 million. The Company has obtained export credit financing with favourable terms to fund 80 percent of the contract price of the ship, subject to certain Italian government approvals. Regent Seven Seas Cruises is owned by Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd., which also owns Norwegian Cruise Line and Oceania Cruises.
Fincantieri is currently building Seven Seas Splendor at its Ancona, Italy shipyard, with relentless focus on perfecting every detail during construction so the ship’s inspired design truly dazzles guests as a work of art.
