A Sneak Peek At This Cruise Line’s Most Luxurious Ship

Regent Seven Seas Cruises recently announced the inaugural season of its newest ultra-luxury ship, Seven Seas Grandeur, and released some head-turning details about the new vessel’s lavish suites and bold, contemporary design. 

The intimate, 750-passenger Seven Seas Grandeur will be the sixth ship in the Regent fleet. Scheduled to set sail in November 2023, it promises to be the line’s most opulent vessel yet, built at a staggering cost of $450 million. 

This significant investment signals confidence in a comeback for the cruise industry, which was hit hard by the pandemic. “Adding a sixth member to the world’s most luxurious fleet demonstrates the strong demand for luxury cruise experiences, as does our four record-breaking launch days over a period of 12 months,” said Jason Montague, President and CEO, Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “Now, with our return to the oceans, we believe the future is very bright for both Regent and luxury travelers.”   

The magnificent Regent Suite

The ambiance and layout of the 4,443-square-foot, $11,000 per night Regent Suite is more reminiscent of a gracious Park Avenue apartment than a stateroom on a cruise ship.

Designed by award-winning Studio DADO, this top-of-the-line suite offers a separate dining area, living room with sitting area, two bedrooms (master and guest), and three walk-in closets.

Every aspect of its decor couples fine materials and craftsmanship, from the museum-quality art to exclusive furnishings and textiles. Case in point is the bespoke $200,000 Swedish Hästens mattress that promises “perfect sleep.”

“We really envisioned the space as a gallery where every piece of furniture, every finish material, every artwork has been painstakingly curated to make the space feel very inviting and welcoming, ” said DADO’s lead designer, June Cuadra.

Nine different types of marble were sourced for the master bathroom alone, which includes an in-suite spa with a personal sauna steam room and treatment area. A jewel-box, circular glass shower dominates the center of the space with a marble tub offering ocean views.

The wraparound balcony, one of the largest at sea, will afford expansive views of the ocean and of the changing landscape when closer to shore. Just off the sophisticated living area, guests can relax on chaise lounges in a skylit, glass-enclosed “Parlor” regardless of the weather, day or night.

Pampered service 

The all-suite Regent Seven Seas Cruises is known for its all-inclusive fares (which include flights, pre-cruise accommodations, complimentary shore excursions, alcoholic and non-alcohol beverages, specialty restaurant dining, onboard gratuities, and unlimited Wi-FI).

Service on the line is attentive and personal; the generous passenger to crew ratio aboard the new ship will be 1:1.38.

Grandeur will offer 15 different categories among its 376 staterooms: the Regent Suite, Master Suite, Grand Suite, Grandeur Suite, Seven Seas Suite, Penthouse Suites (1, 2 & 3), Superior Suites (1 & 2), Deluxe Veranda Suites (1&2) and Veranda Suites. 

All suites above the Penthouse category come with personal butlers ready to unpack and pack suitcases; make dinner, spa and shore excursion reservations; handle your laundry, dry-pressing or shoeshine needs; deliver meals to your room and serve each course; and arrange private parties. 

Regent Suite guests enjoy additional amenities such as first-class air, a personal car with driver and guide in every port, unlimited in-suite spa services, laundry and dry cleaning, a selection of luxurious bed linens and pillow menu, aromatic suite fragrances, and an in-suite caviar service, daily canapes, personalized stationery, and more.

Reimagined dining

Dining options aboard the new ship will also be kicked up a notch, too. Compass Rose, the cruise line’s signature specialty restaurant, will allow guests to curate their own dining experiences with more choices to meet every food preference. 

In addition to main dishes such as Black Angus filet mignon, New Zealand lamb chops, Maine lobster tail and king sea scallops, the menu at Compass Rose will offer daily specials. Other highlights of the Regent specialty dining experience include the Prime 7 steakhouse, offering classic American fare and Chartreuse, a fine dining French restaurant.

The fanfare of an inaugural sailing

“Seven Seas Grandeur is going to embody a heritage of luxury that began back in 1992 with the inception of Regent Seven Seas Cruises, we cannot wait to share her with our guests,” said CEO Montague.

Reservations for the. new ship opened on September 22, 2021.

Maiden voyages area always exciting and often come with other perks. The inaugural 14-day sailing of Grandeur from Barcelona to Miami is scheduled for November 25, 2023, with stops in Seville (Cadiz), Spain; Funchal (Madeira), Portugal; and Bermuda. That sailing will be followed by a weeklong Western Caribbean cruise and then a 16-night itinerary that ends in Los Angeles. During the spring of 2024, she’ll return to the Mediterranean.

The cruise line is offering a starting rate of $8,499 (based on a two-for-one all inclusive fare per person) for the Barcelona-Miami sailing. The cost of the Regent Suite is $76,999 (also based on a two-for-one all-inclusive per-person fare).
