Frank Del Rio, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings president and chief executive officer shared:

“This is truly a special moment, not only for the Regent Seven Seas Cruises brand, but for the entire Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings family. Tonight we celebrate the realization of our vision.  Seven Seas Explorer is not only the world’s most luxurious ship – she sets a new benchmark for luxury vacations and lays the foundation from which Regent Seven Seas Cruises will continue to build.  We have already begun a massive $125 million refurbishment effort to ensure every ship in our fleet matches the luxury standard found on Explorer, and will introduce a sister-ship in 2020.”

Seven Seas Explorer was built by Fincantieri in Italy and is the first ship in its class. The ship is taking luxury somewhere never gone before with new features and experiences. Explorer has breathtaking suites and lavish dining venues. Just take a look at the video below to see just how luxurious the ship will be:

Seven Seas Explorer is 55,254 gross tons and can carry 750 guests with one of the lowest crew to guest ratios in the cruise industry. The luxury liner’s maiden voyage will take place July 20, 2016, and will spend its inaugural season in Europe before heading to Miami for a series of Caribbean voyages.
