Ultra-luxe cruise line Regent Seven Seas has floated out the company’s newest ship.
Regent Seven Seas and shipbuilder Fincantieri debuted the new Seven Seas Splendor on the sea for the first time this week.
The ship is currently putting the finishing touches on its 375 suites, eateries and lounges.
The fifth ship in the company’s fleet will make its inaugural sailing in February 2020.
“One year from now, guests will begin immersing themselves in elegance and hospitality, while fully discovering the hundreds of destinations around the world Seven Seas Splendor travels, returning home at day’s end to the exquisite comfort and care on board with every luxury included,” said Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “I’m excited for our guests to experience how Seven Seas Splendor will perfect luxury.”
Regent said the 55,000—gross-ton, 750-guest ship will have one of the highest space ratios and staff-to-guest ratios in the industry.
The new ship will include the Regent Suite, the largest suite of its kind, with more than 3,000 square feet of interior space and another 1,300 square feet on its wraparound veranda.
