The most luxurious cruise ship ever built, the Regent Seven Seas Explorer, floated out of the Fincantieri’s shipyard in Genoa, Italy, on 30th October. This luxury ship will feature a new category of luxury suite with some of the most spacious accommodations in the industry, unlimited spa treatments and more.
Now outside of the building dock, construction will focus on completing Seven Seas Explorer’s interior spaces including the opulent suites, elegant lounges and gourmet restaurants. The luxury liner’s maiden voyage is scheduled for July 20, 2016. “In less than nine months Seven Seas Explorer will make its grand debut and completely revolutionize the luxury vacation market,” said Jason Montague, president and chief operating officer for Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “Our vision of building the most luxurious ship ever is quickly becoming a reality, providing our guests and travel partners with a new and unrivaled luxury vacation experience that embodies the Regent Seven Seas Cruises brand.”
Robin Lindsay, executive vice president of vessel operations for Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings attended the float out ceremony where a symbolic bottle of champagne was smashed against the side of the ship for good luck and prosperity.
At 56,000 gross-registered tons and carrying only 750 guests, Seven Seas Explorer will boast one of the highest space ratios in the cruise industry. The spacious accommodations combined with an equally high staff-to-guest ratio further strengthens Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ widely recognized position as the leader in the luxury cruise segment.
Every corner of Seven Seas Explorer will exude elegance, beginning with a new category of luxury suite. The 3,875 square-foot Regent Suite offers guests an unmatched luxury experience, with two plush bedrooms, an expansive well-appointed living space and a beam-to-beam private outdoor balcony. The suite also features a cruise industry first in-suite spa retreat with personal sauna, steam room, relaxation loungers and a spa treatment area where guests will enjoy complimentary, unlimited treatments from Canyon Ranch.
The opulence found in the Regent Suite sets the tone for all categories of luxury suites onboard, where guests will experience some of the most spacious accommodations and the largest balconies in the cruise industry.
Seven Seas Explorer will also introduce two new gourmet restaurants with Chartreuse which features a lavish ambiance and epicurean delights found in Paris’ finest eateries, and Pacific Rim (pictured above) which offers a gourmet dining experience that brings to life the rich culinary traditions of Asia. These will complement the four other dining venues onboard to offer significant culinary variety.
