This May Be The The 'World's Most Luxurious Cruise Ship'
One look at these renderings and we think you’ll agree that this vessel could very well be the ‘world’s most luxurious ship’.
Regent Seven Seas unveiled additional artist impressions of its forthcoming vessel Seven Seas Explorer – the fourth ship in the line’s fleet which is currently being built in Genoa.
Dubbed as the grandest and most appealing vessel for cruisers that like to live it up at sea, the ship is expected to ‘far surpass the current standard in luxury cruising’.
How? Well upon completion, Seven Seas Explorer will be an all-suite ship carrying some 750 passengers in ‘unmatched’ accommodation standards.
It’s hard to believe the cruise line could top what’s already on offer, especially when companies like Silversea are already offering five-star services at sea with butlers.
But according to Jason Montague, Regent Seven Seas President and CEO, the ship’s accommodation and public spaces will be unlike any other in the industry.
For example, there’s the Regent Suite, which will be the largest suite on a ship measuring at 3,875 square feet – that’s around 50 percent larger than the average American home.
The room includes a spacious living room, private Vista Garden (a glass-enclosed sitting area), an in-suite spa, marble and stone detailing, a wraparound balcony offering 270-degree views over the ship’s bow.
There’s also floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the ocean.
And how much does such a grand suite set a person back? Around $5,000 per person per day.
But that’s not all.
When it comes to dining, guests will be able to dine at the five-star restaurant, The Compass Rose, which offers a defined atmosphere in the midst of rich woods and light marble stones. The venue transitions from refreshing natural light during the day to a romantic ice blue lighting theme at night. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and features an exceptional variety of Continental cuisine.
Then there’s the new Pan-Asian specialty restaurant, Pacific Rim. The venue offers an array of gourmet dining options with Asian fusion. Montague says it’s unlike any other restaurant at sea, serving tempura encrusted crispy soft shell crab with a touch of heat from a green chili aioli, and a succulently caramelized cassia-braised pork belly topped with perfectly grilled diver scallops; a seaweed and wakame salad drizzled with a black pepper soy and onion dressing.
Onboard entertainment can be found in the Constellation Theatre – a phenomenal venue that pays homage to Hollywood’s Golden Age. The theatre is decorated with a subtle swan motif woven into the seating banquettes, ceiling architecture and an intricate entry-way mosaic. Table-top Murano glass lamps provide a soft, warm glow for guests sitting in the comfortable cabaret-style seats.
For those looking for a relaxing escape, they may want to take a trip down to the Canyon Ranch SpaClub, which looks absolutely incredible. Not only a place to get a spa treatment or massage, it also acts as a type of quick retreat. Regent says it will rival the finest land-based spas. Passengers will have a selection of ultra-luxurious treatments developed by Canyon Ranch in partnership with lifestyle and beauty experts, Red Flower, and premiering exclusively on Seven Seas Explorer before expanding across the fleet.
Upon entering the Canyon Ranch, guests will be greeted by a Swarovski crystal sculpture surrounded by twinkling lights, marble floors and silk wrappings.
Seven Seas Explorer is scheduled to set sail next year.
