Regent Seven Seas Cruises has taken delivery of its sixth ship, Seven Seas Grandeur, which started welcoming guests on November 18.
Designed by the Studio DADO and built by Fincantieri in Ancona, Italy in just over two years, Seven Seas Grandeur is able to hold 746 guests and provide them with transformative experiences on board.
Seven Seas Grandeur boasts 15 accommodation categories, eight dining experiences, a Culinary Arts Kitchen offering hands-on classes and special demonstrations, four new stage productions, as well as house a 1,600-piece art collection featuring a custom designed masterpiece – Journey in Jewels – the first Fabergé Egg to permanently reside at sea.
In addition, the ship will debut Regent’s very first digital art tour, Art Experience, which is available through the new Regent Mobile App from December 2023.
The ship’s maiden voyage set sail from Venice (Trieste), Italy to Barcelona, Spain on November 18, and will later traverse the Atlantic to Miami, Florida for an exclusive gala event on December 10, where her godmother Sarah Fabergé, founding member of The Fabergé Heritage Council and great-granddaughter of Peter Carl Fabergé, will perform her christening duties.
Other sailings include the Caribbean, two transits of the Panama Canal as well as an itinerary sailing the US Eastern Seaboard, before sailing back across the Atlantic from New York to Barcelona in March 2024 to explore the Mediterranean. Seven Seas Grandeur will then sail to Canada and New England in September and October, before culminating a year of travel by exploring more of the Caribbean to close out 2024.
Harry Sommer, president and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, said: “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.”
“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,” added Andrea DeMarco, president of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
