RSSC’s Splen­dor ar­rives

Travel Daily - - Contents -

REGENT Seven Seas Cruises’ highly an­tic­i­pated new Splen­dor has for­mally joined the up­mar­ket cruise line’s fleet, hav­ing been handed over to CEO Ja­son Mon­tague in An­cona, Italy on Fri.

The 750-pas­sen­ger ves­sel is a sis­ter ship to Seven Seas Ex­plorer, with a third sim­i­lar ves­sel also set for de­liv­ery in 2023.

Mon­tague said the open­ing of book­ings for Splen­dor had seen Regent ex­pe­ri­ence its big­gest day of sales ever, while a large Aus­tralian con­tin­gent on board this week re­flects the im­por­tance of the lo­cal mar­ket for the brand.

The ship will be named in Mi­ami later this month by su­per­model Christie Brink­ley, fol­low­ing a se­ries of pre­view sail­ings af­ter which she will be de­ployed in the Caribbean and Mexican Riviera.

A new “Serene Spa & Well­ness” spa brand cre­ated for the ship of­fers ex­clu­sive treat­ments, while on-board din­ing op­tions in­clude the main Com­pass Rose restau­rant, the Prime 7 steak­house, French-in­spired Chartreuse, au­then­tic Ital­ian eatery Sette Mari, and Pa­cific Rim which of­fers Pan-Asian cui­sine and wel­comes guests with a mas­sive myth­i­cal dragon.

Splen­dor is an all-suite, all­bal­cony ship, with state­rooms rang­ing from the 28.5m2 Ve­randa Suite right through to the whop­ping 412m2 Regent Suite which has its own sauna, steam room and spa treat­ment area.

Guests in the Regent Suite have a ded­i­cated per­sonal but­ler, as well as a per­sonal car with driver and guide in ev­ery port.

While that’s the ul­ti­mate in lux­ury, those in lower cat­e­gories are also treated with all-in­clu­sive shore ex­cur­sions, bev­er­ages, spe­cialty restau­rants and much more.
