Regent Seven Seas Cruises Names Newest Ship the Seven Seas Splendor

Rendering of Seven Seas Splendor

Regent Seven Seas Cruises's newest ship has a name: The Seven Seas Splendor.

A sibling vessel to the Seven Seas Explorer, which launched in 2016, new the ship will have many of the same high-end amenities when it launches in the first quarter of 2020. As part of the naming process, Regent Seven Seas Cruises sought suggestions from travel advisors, loyal guests and employees for the ship’s name in a sweepstakes held in September. Seven Seas Splendor was chosen among nearly 2,600 unique names from more than 14,000 submissions.

When Travel Agent’s Paris correspondent Mary Winston Nicklin sailed on the Seven Seas Explorer shortly after its launch, highlights included two new specialty restaurants, Chartreuse and Pacific Rim, as well as creatively designed lounges and public spaces and the 3,875-square-foot Regent Suite. The ship also marked the debut of Regent’s new culinary instruction center. All suites onboard the ship include a private balcony, with 93 of the verandahs extending beyond 83 square feet. For entertainment, guests on the Seven Seas Explorer can check out the 694-seat Constellation Theater, as well as the Roaring Twenties-themed Observation Lounge.
