Regent Seven Seas Cruises today officially revealed the name of their newest ship. The ultra-luxury vessel will be called Seven Seas Splendor and debut in the first quarter of 2020.
As we previously reported the travelling public were invited to take part in the naming process. Regent Seven Seas Cruises sought suggestions for the ship’s name in a sweepstakes held in September. Seven Seas Splendor was chosen from among almost 2,600 unique names and more than 14,000 submissions.
“The naming of a ship is an important milestone in maritime tradition and it is my pleasure to announce that the name of Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ new ship to launch in 2020 is Seven Seas Splendor,” said Jason Montague, President and Chief Executive Officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
Seven Seas Splendor will be the second Explorer-class cruise ship in the Regent Seven Seas fleet. The first, Seven Seas Explorer, is billed as the most luxurious ship afloat and has proved enormously popular. “The extraordinary demand for Seven Seas Explorer has reinforced our decision to expand our fleet and Seven Seas Splendor will offer guests a fifth option that will provide unforgettable experiences with the incredibly high standards of luxury and service that lure guests back again and again.”
The new all-suite, all-balcony Seven Seas Splendor will have a gross tonnage of 55,254 and capacity of 750 guests.
