Seven Seas Splendor was the name chosen from 2,600 unique names when the line sought suggestions from passengers and employees in a sweepstake held in September.
The 750-passenger luxury all-suite, all-balcony vessel is due to enter service in the first quarter of 2020, four years after the introduction of Seven Seas Explorer.
RSSC president and chief executive, Jason Montague, said: “The naming of a ship is an important milestone in maritime tradition and it is my pleasure to announce that the name of Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ new ship to launch in 2020 is Seven Seas Splendor.
“The extraordinary demand for Seven Seas Explorer has reinforced our decision to expand our fleet and Seven Seas Splendor will offer guests a fifth option that will provide unforgettable experiences in the world’s most compelling destinations, with the incredibly high standards of luxury and service that lure guests back again and again.”
Details of the ship’s inaugural season have yet to be announced, but take a look below at Montague unveiling the name of their newest member:
The six star cruise line currently host four intimate ships: Seven Seas Explorer (currently in Marseille, France), Seven Seas Mariner (currently in Key West, Florida), Seven Seas Voyager (currently cruising the Arabian Sea), and Seven Seas Navigator (currently in St. Kitts, Virgin Islands).
