Regent Seven Seas Cruises To Expand Fleet

Luxury cruise line Regent Seven Seas Cruises has announced plans to build a fourth ship scheduled to join its fleet in summer 2016. Accommodating just 738 guests, the upcoming all-suite, all-balcony Seven Seas Explorer will be built by Italian shipbuilders Fincantieri and allow the company to expand its footprint in the market where sister brand Oceania Cruises and competitors Seabourn and Silversea Cruises have introduced new vessels in recent years.

 

At 54,000 GRT, she will be the largest vessel in the Regent Seven Seas Cruises fleet and boast one of the highest space- and staff-to-guest ratios today. Renowned architectural and interior design firms Tillberg Design AB, RTKL Associates and ICrave are designing the ship to create an upscale yet timeless space using exotic stones and polished woods, designer furniture, rich fabrics and sophisticated lighting.

 

When launched, she will feature 369 suites, 6 open-seating gourmet restaurants, a 2-storey Explorer Theatre, 3 boutiques and a spacious Canyon Ranch SpaClub. The line’s signature 9-deck atrium will form the centerpiece of the vessel, which will also be a “green ship” employing state-of-the-art environmental systems and technology.

 

Further details about the ship will be announced in the coming months.

 

Headquartered in Miami, Regent Seven Seas Cruises is a brand of luxury small-ship cruise company Prestige Cruise Holdings. The line currently sails the Seven Seas Mariner, Seven Seas Navigator and Seven Seas Voyager on all-inclusive itineraries around the world.
