Seven Seas Explorer Construction Begins

Date Posted: 17 Jul 2014

Regent Seven Seas has begun construction on new ship Seven Seas Explorer at the Fincantieri shipyard in Genoa, Italy.

A major milestone in the journey of new ship Seven Seas Explorer was met yesterday when the first piece of steel was cut during an emotional ceremony held at the shipyard. A bottle of Krug Grande Cuvèe champagne was popped open accompanied with confetti gushing down as the laser cut the steel.

During the ceremony Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri said “We are extremely excited to welcome a new partner in Regent Seven Seas Cruises and to start construction of this brilliant new ship. As a global leader in cruise ship construction, we’ve built some of the finest ships at sea. Building the most luxurious ship ever built is quite a challenge, but with our craftsmanship and experience building luxury ships we feel that Seven Seas Explorer will become the definition of excellence.”

Kunal S Kamlani, President of Regent Seven seas Cruises added “We’re one step closer to fulfilling our dream of building the most luxurious ship in the world and giving our guests another exciting option to explore inspired global destinations with our special brand of all-inclusive luxury.”

Seven Seas Explorer is set to showcase the highest space ratios and staff to guest rations within the cruise industry and remain as the most inclusive luxury line in the market. She will carry 750 guests and weigh in at 54, 000 gross ton.

Debuting in summer 2016, her maiden voyage and other itineraries are set to go on sale in the first part of 2015. No information on her homeport has yet been released.
