Port to Starboard
Go on a voyage unlike any other aboard the best vessels that can take you around the world
Regent Seven Seas Explorer
There are high expectations when an ocean liner claims to be “the most luxurious ship ever built,” but the Regent Seven Seas Explorer does not disappoint. Its cruises can range from an eightnight trip from Barcelona to Rome to a 22-night excursion from London to Venice; its first voyage set out last July. This vessel can accommodate 750 passengers, has 375 rooms, and has artworks by Picasso hung on the doors of the Regent Suite.
To give you an idea of how luxurious this ship is, it is an all-suite vessel, with the Regent Suite measuring 4,443 sq. ft. It’s situated atop the ship’s bow and is equipped with a private spa, a custom Treesse minipool on the balcony, and a Savoir No. 1 bed that costs $150,000. Aside from these in-suite amenities, guests will also have a car and a driver waiting for them at every port.
When it comes to dining, the Seven Seas Explorer spares no expense. Its two lunch restaurants and six dinner restaurants offer a variety of dishes, from Korean barbecue lamb chops to miso-spiced black cod. On a typical 14-night cruise, the Explorer will go through about 2,000 pounds of lobster, which, when ordered in the Compass Room, are served on Versace place settings.
Guests can also enjoy the other services and amenities on the offer by lounging by the doublelevel pool deck, placing a few bets at the casino, going for a jog on the outdoor deck, and practicing their golf swing on the green.
