Regent Announces Fourth Ship With Its Seven Seas Explorer

Announcing Seven Seas Explorer

Today, Regent Seven Seas Cruises announced the next chapter in its history. The ine hasse entered into a contract with Italy’s Fincantieri shipyard to build the most luxurious cruise ship in the era of modern cruising. The new all-suite, all-balcony ship will be named Seven Seas Explorer with delivery scheduled for Summer 2016.

At 54,000 gross tons and accommodating just 738 guests, Seven Seas Explorer will be the largest vessel in the Regent Seven Seas Cruises fleet. The ship will boast one of the highest space ratios and staff-to-guest ratios in modern cruise ship design enabling the line to deliver the highly personalised service and extraordinary experience that clients have come to expect from Regent.

This new ship order is part of Regent’s disciplined growth strategy to expand its footprint in the luxury market. Since  purchasing the Regent Seven Seas Cruises brand in 2008, its ships have sailed full with industry-leading yields. Expanding the fleet will allow for a greater array of itineraries.

With the Seven Seas Explorer, overall fleet capacity will grow nearly 40%, making Regent Seven Seas the world’s largest luxury cruise line.

Seven Seas Explorer will feature spacious and sophisticated designer suites, ultra-elegant public areas, a wide-range of dining options with six gourmet restaurants, an expansive Canyon Ranch SpaClub, Regent’s signature nine-deck atrium, two-story Explorer Theater and many other amenities all created with the personality, warmth and soul of classic and timeless design.

The moment guests step aboard Seven Seas Explorer, they’ll know they have arrived somewhere special. The use of exotic stones and polished woods, designer furniture, rich fabrics and sophisticated lighting combined with what promises to be a museum-quality eclectic art collection will clearly position Seven Seas Explorer as the new standard in luxury cruising.

The Seven Seas Explorer follows the 28,550-ton Seven Seas Navigator (490 guests), complete by Mariotti in 1999, the 48,015-ton Seven Seas Mariner (708 guests), launched by Chantiers de l’Atlantique in 2001 and the 41,827-ton Seven Seas Voyager (708 guests), completed by Mariott in 2003.

Further details about Seven Seas Explorer will be announced in the coming months so please stay tuned. In the words of its executives:

“We want to take this opportunity to thank you for your tremendous support over the years. As we look toward the future and the evolution of Regent Seven Seas Cruises, we know that our success will flourish as a result of our mutual partnerships and the powerful value proposition of providing the Most Inclusive Luxury Cruise Experience in the world.”
