Regent Seven Seas Cruises has taken delivery of its latest ship, Seven Seas Grandeur, the sixth ship to join its fleet.
Grandeur can hold up to 746 guests with 548 members of staff on board. The ship has a gross tonnage of 55,500, meaning it boasts the highest space and staff to guest ratio in the industry.
“We would like to thank Studio DADO and Fincantieri for their outstanding collaboration in realising this incredible new vessel which truly builds on the ground-breaking traditions of Regent’s exceptional Explorer-class ships which came before,” said Harry Sommer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. “Seven Seas Grandeur’s inaugural season is all but sold out, which is testament to the burgeoning popularity of the unrivalled Regent experience and also reflective of the ship being the most anticipated launch of 2023.”
“The expectations of both our loyal past guests and those who are new to Regent will be exceeded by Seven Seas Grandeur’s refined style, matchless elegance, and breath-taking beauty,” said Andrea DeMarco, President of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “As the appetite for luxury travel continues to grow, the delivery of Seven Seas Grandeur provides even more opportunities to cruise the world while enjoying the highest standards of hospitality in lavish and spacious surroundings.”
The ship’s maiden voyage will from Venice (Trieste), Italy to Barcelona, Spain on November 18, 2023. The ship then traverses the Atlantic to Miami, Florida for an elegant and exclusive gala event on December 10, 2023, where the ship’s Godmother Sarah Fabergé, founding member of The Fabergé Heritage Council and great-granddaughter of Peter Carl Fabergé, will perform her christening duties.
The new ship will feature 15 accommodation categories, with the largest being the palatial 4,443 square foot Regent Suite, which costs $11,000 per night.
There are eight dining venues on board, including signature restaurants Compass Rose, Prime 7, Chartreuse and La Veranda.
