quenmaryLast week came news that Regent Seven Seas Cruises had finally ordered its long-anticipated fourth ship. The 738-berth 54,000-ton Seven Seas Explorer will have a passenger space ratio of more than 73 gross tons per passenger. This compares to the new record of 80 tons per passenger on Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ Europa 2, introduced this May. Elsewhere, Cunard Line’s Queen Mary 2 completed her 200th North Atlantic crossing this weekend, having now carried about 500,000 Transatlantic passengers. Meanwhile, MSC Cruises will double its ex-UK presence in September 2014 with the addition of the MSC Magica to the UK-based MSC Opera, and has announced a new UK boss.
