Regent Seven Seas Cruises Announces Second Explorer-Class Vessel
Regent Seven Seas has announced that it has reached an agreement with Fincantieri of Italy to construct a sister ship to Seven Seas Explorer for delivery in 2020. Seven Seas Explorer is currently under construction and is scheduled to make its debut in July 2016.
The new Explorer-class vessel will build on the runaway success of Seven Seas Explorer, the first new-build for Regent Seven Seas Cruises in 14 years. Scheduled for delivery in 2020, the new ship will retain many of the high-end features and amenities that have led to Seven Seas Explorer being hailed as the most luxurious ship ever built. Guests can anticipate exquisite gourmet dining, plush lounges and spacious accommodations, including a rendition of the Regent Suite, a new class of ultra-luxurious suite that will debut on Seven Seas Explorer. Expanded details for the new ship will be announced at a later date.
The contract price for the vessel is euro 422 million and the Company has committed financing in place from a syndicate of banks for export credit financing in connection with this order.
Seven Seas Explorer is due to enter service in July 2016, and is dubbed to be the most luxurious cruise ship in the world.
At 54,000 gross tons, Seven Seas Explorer will be larger than Seven Seas Mariner, Seven Seas Navigator and Seven Seas Voyager. She will offer accommodation across 369 suites for just 750 guests, which means she will boast one of the best passenger-to-space ratios in the cruise industry. In specific terms, the suites onboard Seven Seas Explorer will range from 300 to 1500 square feet in size and will be beautifully decorated and packed with the latest modern appliances.
Seven Seas Explorer will also offer her guests a fantastic range of gourmet dining venues to choose from during their voyage, including Regent's signature steakhouse restaurant, Prime 7, which will feature a new décor highlighted by dark purple hues, silver accents and plush leather seating, reminiscent of a London private member club. Compass Rose, La Veranda and Sette Mari at La Veranda will all also feature aboard.
