Regent Seven Seas Cruises has just announced their decision to build a third Explorer-class vessel due to arrive in 2023.
It will be sister ship to Seven Seas Explorer and Seven Seas Splendor, along with taking the name of Regent’s sixth all-suite vessel.
President and chief executive Jason Montague commented: “Our growth is a reflection of the amazing people who work across our fleet, our valued shoreside employees, our loyal guests and their trusted travel advisors.”
The €475 million ship will be built in Italy’s Fincantieri shipyard and will proudly accommodate 750 guests.
Guests can expect details about itineraries, suites, restaurants, amenities and onboard experiences to be revealed leading up to her debut but will officially go on sale two years before in 2021.
Over the past year, Regent has completed a $125 million remodelling of its fleet and started construction on Seven Seas Splendor at Fincantieri’s Ancona shipyard.
Harry Sommer, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings’ international president, said: “If you think about the growth of the brand – the Navigator, the Explorer and the Voyager – we have more than doubled the fleet in a short amount of time. It is an upscale product, too.”
According to Sommer, there will also be “little tweaks” between the third Explorer-class vessel and its sister ships.
“We are excited to build on the spectacular success of Seven Seas Explorer and Seven Seas Splendor as we embark on bringing to life a new vessel that will set an even higher benchmark for elegance, luxury and style,” said Frank Del Rio, president and chief executive officer of NCLH.
“This new ship further strengthens our company’s robust yet measured growth profile with vessels now on order for all three of our award-winning brands, enabling us to expand our presence globally, further diversify our product offerings and continue to drive shareholder returns.”
Regent completed their $125 million fleet-wide refurbishment last year and officially started construction on Seven Seas Splendor, the ship which was named from public suggestions.
The line also unveiled their 2020-2021 Voyage Collection with 167 itineraries and new ports and introduced a new relaxed outdoor evening dining fleetwide at the Pool Grill.
