Regent Seven Seas are renowned for providing all-inclusive experiences on board their ultra-luxury vessels. Elegant experiences are enhanced by the fact that flights, alcoholic beverages, gratuities, internet packages and even excursions are all included in the fare. The fleet’s three ships currently in service – Seven Seas Mariner, Seven Seas Navigator, and Seven Seas Voyager – are some of the most luxurious vessels to sail the seas. In July 2016, they will be joined by the first new addition to the fleet in over ten years.
Upon launch, Seven Seas Explorer will become the fleet’s largest vessel, boosting total capacity by a huge 40%. All guests on board will be able to enjoy one of 369 suites, ranging from 300 square feet to over 1,500 square feet. In fact, Seven Seas Explorer will feature the largest suite at sea, which will measure a staggering 3,875 square feet – making it larger than the average American home.
At a cost of $450 million, it is the most expensive luxury ship ever built and at 56,000 gross tons, it will offer one of the highest space-to-passenger ratios in the history of cruising. Having been under construction since July 2014, it is clear that Regent Seven Seas are paying utmost attention to every fine detail. She is due to embark on her maiden voyage, during which she will sail from Monte Carlo to Venice, on 20th July 2016.
She will play host to a whole manner of impressive amenities including the Canyon Ranch Spa complete with infinity pool, a two-tier 694-seat theatre, and a 1920’s inspired observation lounge which has been designed in the style of the Great Gatsby. One of the most exciting features of Seven Seas Explorer will be the Culinary Arts Kitchen, where guests will be able to try their hand at cooking a variety of opulent dishes.
Popular Regent Seven Seas dining venues such as the Prime 7 Steakhouse will return, offering a selection of the highest grade quality cuts of beef and succulent seafood. The main dining room, The Compass Rose, will feature grotto-like décor with a stalagmite-esque chandelier. In addition to these classic venues, there will also be two new speciality restaurants. Pacific Rim – a Pan-Asian restaurant – is the place to go to sample food from across all of Asia including tempura soft shell crab and Korean barbecue lamb chops. Chartreuse – a contemporary French restaurant – will provide an opportunity to sample dishes such as blue lobster tail and hand-cut Charolais steak tartare.
Regent Seven Seas' Seven Seas Explorer will certainly provide a nod to a historically elegant era of cruising. There are no slides or climbing walls and, with capacity for only 750 passengers, there will be plenty of space to relax and unwind on board. These passengers will be joined by a total of 650 crew members, resulting in a ratio of 13 crew members to every 15 passengers.
