Regent Seven Seas Cruises has held the keel-laying ceremony for its new ship, Seven Seas Grandeur.
The event took place at the Fincantieri shipyard in Ancona, Italy, with senior members of the Regent Seven Seas team and Fincantieri present to formally place one of the vessel’s building blocks.
The 732-guest Seven Seas Grandeur is due to make its debut in 2023.
Its inaugural season will start in November, with 17 voyages in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean, plus two transatlantic crossings, ranging from seven to 16 nights.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises president and CEO Jason Montague said: “Since their respective debuts in 2016 and 2020, Seven Seas Explorer and Seven Seas Splendor have delighted discerning luxury travellers from across the world, earning a reputation as the most luxurious ships ever built.
“Now their sister, Seven Seas Grandeur, builds upon Regent’s rich three decade-long history. Inspired by our heritage, this will be a ship that harmonises elegance, comfort, freedom and choice, providing an unrivalled experience, and will continue to delight our guests for years to come.”
Ancona shipyard director Gilberto Tobaldi added: “Seven Seas Grandeur marks our third collaboration with Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
“We are proud to partner with such a prestigious cruise line to develop Seven Seas Grandeur, which will be a beautiful model for the future of luxury cruising.”
Regent added it has worked with Studio DADO “to reimagine the distinct level of luxury found on board” across its fleet.
The line said that the designs on Seven Seas Grandeur “take modern luxury cruising to new aesthetic heights”.
