Regent Seven Seas Cruises announced an order with Italy’s Fincantieri S.p.A. to build another explorer-class cruise ship. With delivery scheduled in late 2023, the new vessel will be a sister ship to the Seven Seas Explorer and Seven Seas Splendor.
Accommodating up to 750 guests, the new ship will be Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ sixth-all-suite vessel. Details about her itineraries, suites, restaurants, amenities, and onboard experiences will be revealed leading up to her 2023 debut. Voyages for the ship’s inaugural season will go on sale in 2021.
The contract price for the vessel is approximately €475 million. The company has obtained export credit financing with favorable terms to fund 80 percent of the contract price of the ship, subject to certain Italian government approvals. Regent Seven Seas Cruises is owned by Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd., which also owns Norwegian Cruise Line and Oceania Cruises.
