On 28 June 2018 the keel laying ceremony of Regent Seven Sea Cruises new ultra-luxury cruise ship, Seven Seas Splendor took place at the Fincantieri shipyard in Ancona, Italy.
The new ship will be a sister ship to Seven Seas Explorer and is expected to launch in 2020. The 55,000 gross tonne Seven Seas Explorer will accommodate 750 passengers.
Jason Montague, President and CEO, Regent Seven Seas Cruises, said: “Seven Seas Explorer has earned remarkable acclaim since debuting in 2016 as the most luxurious ship ever built. Now, her sister Seven Seas Splendor builds upon the success of that lauded ship as it strives to perfect uncompromised luxury on the seas. In our pursuit to exceed guest expectations, we are creating a work of art, from bow to stern. Wherever you turn on Seven Seas Splendor, you will be surrounded by elegance, comfort and hospitality."
