Regent Seven Seas Cruises splashes out €475m for third Explorer-Class ship

Regent Seven Seas Cruises has placed an order with Italy’s Fincantieri shipyard to build a sister for Seven Seas Explorer and Seven Seas Splendor, for delivery in 2023.

Accommodating up to 750 guests, the Explorer-Class ship, costing €475m, will be Regent’s sixth-all-suite vessel.

Details about her itineraries, suites, restaurants, amenities and onboard experiences will be revealed in the run-up to her debut. Her inaugural season will go on sale in 2021.

“Since debuting in 2016, Seven Seas Explorer has solidified her reputation as the most luxurious ship ever built based on the continuous awards and guest accolades she earns,” said Jason Montague, RSSC’s president.

“When Seven Seas Splendor’s inaugural season went on sale in April 2018 we set a new single-day booking record for our 26-year-old company, demonstrating the anticipation for her 2020 arrival. Each new ship is progressively more successful. ”

Montague added: “Over the past 12 months Regent Seven Seas Cruises has completed a $125m remodelling of our fleet, started construction on Seven Seas Splendor, unveiled our 2020-2021 Voyage Collection with 167 itineraries and new ports, introduced new relaxed outdoor evening dining venues on our ships, debuted the most immersive luxury Cuban voyage itineraries, revealed Go Local Tours and Regent Choice small group shore excursions, and now we announce one more category-defining luxury cruise ship.

“These are exciting times for everyone associated with Regent Seven Seas Cruises and we can’t wait to show you what’s next.”

Fincantieri is currently building Seven Seas Splendor at its Ancona shipyard.
