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.
