Regent Seven Seas Cruises has welcomed its newest ship, Seven Seas Splendor, to its fleet. It was delivered at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Ancona, Italy.
At 55,254 gross tons and 735 feet in length, Seven Seas Splendor is described as Luxury Perfected. On board, the highest benchmarks of personalized service and comforts will be delivered by 551 professional crew members caring for 750 guests in 375 beautifully appointed suites, ranging from 307- to 4,443-square feet. Lavishly designed public spaces include five exquisite and unique restaurants and three elegant bars and lounges, while a $5 million curated art collection, more than 500 crystal chandeliers, and over an acre of Italian marble complement the ship’s sophistication.
Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises, said, “Wherever you turn on Seven Seas Splendor, you will be surrounded by elegance, comfort and hospitality. Luxury travelers have anticipated this stunning new ship for more than two years. The day she opened for reservations was the busiest booking day in our company’s history. We thank the talented team at Fincantieri for collaborating with Regent to achieve our ambitious vision of creating the ship that perfects luxury. Seven Seas Splendor demonstrates how Regent continues to deliver An Unrivaled Experience for guests across our fleet.”
Helmed by Captain Serena Melani, the first female captain to take charge of a brand-new ocean cruise ship, Seven Seas Splendor sailed its first official voyage on Feb. 6 from Barcelona, Spain to Miami.
The ship will be christened on Feb. 21 by its godmother, supermodel and actress Christie Brinkley, at a glamorous ceremony at PortMiami. Seven Seas Splendor will also be showcased to global media and travel partners on preview sailings throughout February and March.
Following her christening event, Seven Seas Splendor cruises the Caribbean and Mexican Riviera, which includes two crossings of the Panama Canal and one unique Southern Caribbean cruise from Miami to New York City. In spring, Splendor will traverse the Atlantic Ocean once more for its inaugural European season, offering cultural and historically rich ports of call in one of the world’s most popular regions, the Mediterranean.
