Norwegian Cruise Line’s Regent Seven Seas Cruises has received the delivery of its fifth luxury cruise ship, Seven Seas Splendor.

The company received the ship delivery in Fincantieri’s Ancona shipyard in Italy.

Weighing 55,254GT, Seven Seas Splendor can carry 750 passengers on board.

The 735ft-long luxury cruise features 375 suites, ranging from 307ft² to 4,443ft².

The ship has five restaurants and three bars and lounges. In addition, guests can enjoy the $5m curated art collection that includes 500 crystal chandeliers.

The construction of Seven Seas Splendor began in March 2018 at Ancona.

The cruise ship will join the existing four-ship fleet of Regent Seven Seas Cruises that offer cruises to more than 450 destinations around the world.

Captain Serena Melani will be in charge of Seven Seas Splendor. She will be the first female captain to manage a new ocean cruise ship.

The ship will start its first voyage on 6 February to Miami, Florida, US, from Barcelona, Spain. Actress Christie Brinkley will christen the ship christening in Port Miami on 21 February.

Regent Seven Seas Cruises president and CEO Jason Montague said: “Wherever you turn on Seven Seas Splendor, you will be surrounded by elegance, comfort and hospitality.

“Luxury travellers have anticipated this stunning new ship for more than two years. The day she opened for reservations was the busiest booking day in our company’s history. We thank the talented team at Fincantieri for collaborating with Regent to achieve our ambitious vision of creating the ship that perfects luxury.

“Seven Seas Splendor demonstrates how Regent continues to deliver an unrivalled experience for guests across our fleet.”
