Regent Seven Seas Cruises welcomes Seven Seas Explorer to its fleet

Luxury cruise liner, Regent Seven Seas Cruises welcomed the newest member to its fleet— Seven Seas Explorer on July 13. Godmother of Seven Seas Explorer, Princess Charlene of Monaco officially christened the ship, stated a release. The gala christening ceremony took place in Monte Carlo and included a special private concert by renowned Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli. The ship undertook its maiden voyage on July 20, to spend its inaugural season in Europe before heading to Miami for a series of Caribbean voyages.

Princess Charlene delivered the traditional maritime blessing before the bottle of champagne broke against the ship’s hull, officially christening the vessel.  “This is truly a special moment, not only for the Regent Seven Seas Cruises brand, but for the entire Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings family,” said Frank Del Rio, President and CEO, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings. “Tonight we celebrate the realisation of our vision. Seven Seas Explorer is not only the world’s most luxurious ship - she sets a new benchmark for luxury vacations and lays the foundation from which Regent Seven Seas Cruises will continue to build. We have already begun a massive USD 125 million refurbishment effort to ensure every ship in our fleet matches the luxury standard found on Explorer, and will introduce a sister-ship in 2020.”

Seven Seas Explorer features theaters and lounges, spacious suites, five gourmet restaurants and offers personalised service. At 55,254 gross-registered tons and carrying capacity of 750 guests, the all-suite, all-balcony ship boasts one of the highest space ratios and lowest crew to guest ratios in the cruise industry, largest private verandas in the cruise and a new category of luxury suite, the nearly 4,500-square foot Regent Suite, stated a release. “Seven Seas Explorer is the most luxurious ship ever built, and we are truly grateful and privileged to have Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene of Monaco serve as the ship’s godmother,” added Jason Montague, President and COO, Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “Our guests have waited patiently for over a decade for a new Regent Seven Seas Cruises ship, and once they sail Seven Seas Explorer I’m confident they will agree it was well worth the wait,” added Montague.

“It is an honour to be the Godmother of this magnificent ship, Seven Seas Explorer. I am also thrilled by the discussions taking place between my Foundation and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings to implement my water safety programme on all their ships.Developing awareness of the risks attached to aquatic environments is, for me, a cause of most importance,” stated Princess Charlene.
