The Most Luxurious Ship Ever Built

December 8, 2014

If you regularly embark on cruises but are looking for a holiday experience like no other, the new Seven Seas Explorer may be the answer.

Deemed ‘the most luxurious ship ever built’, the high-quality vessel is the brainchild of Prestige Holdings, which includes Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

This month, Jason Montague was named president of the cruise line, taking over the role from Kunal Kamlani.

Speaking about the new vessel, Mr Montague said: “We’re building the most luxurious ship ever created, and our loyal guests and travel agent partners are eagerly awaiting detailed information about Seven Seas Explorer.

“This dedicated microsite provides us with a platform to provide our passionate brand advocates with the latest updates and exciting developments surrounding this extraordinary new ship from now through launch.”

Prestige Holdings and Oceania Cruises were recently acquired by Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings. Together with the arrival of Seven Seas Explorer, the refurbishment of Princess Cruises‘ Ocean Princess by Oceania and the construction of the Norwegian Escape, the company fleet will be comprised of 24 ships.

In addition, the Norwegian Bliss will arrive in 2017, followed by two Breakaway Plus Class ships in 2018 and 2019.

Currently being constructed at the Fincantieri shipyards in Genoa, Seven Seas Explorer is the fourth addition to the luxury fleet, following the Seven Seas Mariner, Seven Seas Voyager and Seven Seas Navigator.

Once built, the all-suite, all-balcony vessel will hold 750 passengers and, at 54,000 tons, will be the line’s largest ship.

The 369 suites will range in size from 300 to 1,500 sq ft, increasing Prestige Holdings’ capacity by 40 per cent.

When you book, the fleet provides a near all-inclusive facility, including airfare and port of call excursions. Not only this, but it will also offer a range of amenities, including world-class spas and an array of gourmet dining options, making for a truly luxurious experience.

Seven Seas Explorer is due to be completed in summer 2016. Itineraries for the ship’s maiden voyage and inaugural season will be made available to Seven Seas Society members on January 19th 2015, and to the general public from February 11th 2015.
