Construction work begins on Regent’s Seven Seas Grandeur
Construction work has begun on Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ Seven Seas Grandeur, after the ship’s steel-cutting ceremony took place at Fincantieri shipyard in Ancona, Italy, on Tuesday (November 2).
A sister ship to Seven Seas Explorer and Seven Seas Splendor, it will carry 750 guests and offer some of the highest space ratios and staff- to-guest ratios in the industry.
Seven Seas Grandeur is scheduled to start its inaugural season in November 2023, cruising in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean, plus two transatlantic crossings.
Jason Montague, president and chief executive at Regent Seven Seas Cruises, said: “We are delighted to once again be in the hands of the talented engineers of Fincantieri, who will produce a ship of refined style, matchless elegance and breath-taking beauty.
“We recently recommenced operations with the re-inaugural season of our newest ship, Seven Seas Splendor, and our incredible journey continues with this milestone as we begin construction of Seven Seas Grandeur.
“In two years’ time we will welcome the sixth ship to the world’s most luxurious fleet, which will exemplify our heritage of perfection with unrivalled space, unparalleled service, exceptional cuisine and transformative experiences that will begin the moment you step aboard.”
