REGENT SEVEN SEAS CRUISES CUTS STEEL AT ANCONA FOR ITS NEW CRUISE SHIP, SPLENDOR
On 15 March 2018, construction began on the new Regent Seven Seas Splendor. The Cruise line’s President and Chief Executive Officer Jason Montague with Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings’ Executive Vice President of Vessel Operations Robin Lindsay and Regent’s Senior Vice President of Hotel Operations Franco Semeraro pressed the button to ignite the cutting torch at Fincantieri Ancona. “This will shape the first plate of steel for Seven Seas Splendor,” said Fincantieri’s Shipyard Director Giovanni Stecconi. The new 750-guest ship will join the Regent fleet in early 2020, in pursuit of the ultimate achievement – perfection.
“This is truly an exciting moment for us and we are delighted to work with the skilful engineers of Fincantieri Shipyard to build our new ship that will again raise the standards of luxury for the industry,” said Mr. Montague. “Regent Seven Seas has been committed to delivering the most beautiful destinations with impeccable personalised service aboard elegant and intimately spacious ships for more than 25 years. With the first steel cut for Seven Seas Splendor in Ancona, we are now underway to realising our plans for the new ship that will perfect luxury.”
The inaugural season for the all-suite, all-balcony ship will go on sale this spring. Seven Seas Splendor will join Regent’s most luxurious fleet in the world comprising Seven Seas Explorer, Seven Seas Voyager, Seven Seas Mariner, and Seven Seas Navigator.
