This summer, Regent Seven Seas will take delivery of its newest cruise ship to-date – and the line is pulling out all the stops for what will be the first newbuild constructed for the luxury brand in more than a decade.
On July 20, 2016, Seven Seas Explorer will officially set sail on her maiden voyage. Regent calls her, “the most luxurious ship ever built,” and she very well might be.
In the works since 2008, the 750-guest Seven Seas Explorer will offer some of the largest and most luxurious suites at sea. If early renderings are any indication, her interiors will be nearly unparalleled in the industry; an impressive fact considering the kind of competition Regent is up against from competing lines like Crystal Cruises, Seabourn Cruises and Silversea.
She’s not the biggest ship to set sail this year, but she could well be one of the most important; her massive Regent Suite will see that her arrival does not go unnoticed.
Here are just a few points of differentiation found aboard the upcoming Seven Seas Explorer:
The (Very) Suite Life
Aboard Seven Seas Explorer, guests will stay in one of 375 spacious suites. Each room aboard the ship will feature its own private balcony, and 93 percent of those will have verandas larger than 83 square feet. That’s as large as some early interior cruise ship cabins were 20 years ago. Regent calls this a “spacious outdoor oasis for guests to enjoy the scenic vistas and ocean breezes in total comfort.”
Master Suites offer chic Park Avenue styling, replete with rosewood polished furniture and crystal chandeliers. These two-bedroom suite features a modern sophisticated and elegant design.
Located at the bow of the ship on decks seven and eight, the four Master Suites measure between 1,900 square feet and 2,100 square feet and boast spacious living areas with bars for entertaining and balconies up to 1,000 square-feet. Adjacent to each bedroom, guests will find ornate marble and stone bathrooms with shower and tub.
