Seven Seas Grandeur has been welcomed into the Regent Seven Seas Cruises fleet ahead of its maiden voyage this week. The brand new luxury vessel was officially handed over during a ceremony at the Fincantieri shipyard in Ancona, Italy.
The 746-guest Seven Seas Grandeur is now the sixth ship in the Regent fleet. It is also the third of the line’s Explorer-class vessels, which have been designed especially for the ultra-luxury cruise line. The Exploreer-class have more space and dining options, as well as curated art collections.
“This incredible new vessel truly builds on the ground-breaking traditions of Regent’s exceptional Explorer-class ships.”
Harry Sommer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd (Regent’s parent company).

Seven Seas Grandeur’s maiden voyage is sold-out. In fact, the entire inaugural season which will take in the Caribbean and Eastern U.S. is almost fully sold.
Regent set to take on competitors
Seven Seas Grandeur gives Regent a much needed boost in the ultra-luxury market. Indeed, with a fleet of 6 vessels it is now better placed to take on luxury rivals.
“As the appetite for luxury travel continues to grow, the delivery of Seven Seas Grandeur provides even more opportunities to cruise the world.”
Andrea DeMarco, President of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
However, there will be pressure for the brand to continue its fleet expansion. At the time of writing Regent had no other vessels on order. By contrast, competitors like Silversea and Crystal have firm fleet expansion plans with pending deliveries and/or projections for multiple new vessels.
