Regent Seven Seas Cruises marked the keel laying for its ship Seven Seas Grandeur with a special ceremony at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy. The sixth vessel in the all-inclusive, luxury cruise line’s fleet is due to enter service in 2023, sailing the waters of the Caribbean, Atlantic and Mediterranean during its first season. 

Seven Seas Grandeur is the third collaboration between the Italian shipbuilder and Regent Seven Seas Cruises. Sister ships Seven Seas Explorer and Seven Seas Splendor made their debuts in 2010 and 2016, respectively. At the ceremony, three specially minted coins, each  representing one of the three ships, were placed in the keel. 

Seven Seas Grandeur builds upon Regent’s rich three decade-long history,” said Jason Montague, president and CEO Regent Seven Seas Cruises, in a press statement. “Inspired by our heritage, this will be a ship that harmonizes elegance, comfort, freedom and choice, providing an unrivaled experience, and will continue to delight our guests for years to come.”

The 732-passenger Seven Seas Grandeur will take to the high seas in November 2023, offering 7- to 16-night voyages to destinations in the Mediterranean, Caribbean and Atlantic, including Colombia, Cayman Islands and Monte Carlo. The ship boasts 15 suite categories, including its 4,443 square-foot, $11,000-a-night Regent Suite, eight food and beverage options including Chartreuse, an Art Deco modern French restaurant, Serene Spa & Wellness center, a fitness center, a jogging track as well as several sporting activities like bocce ball, golf and paddle tennis, four clubs and lounges, a theater and a casino.
