The ship went on sale exclusively to members of RSSC's loyalty program, the Seven Seas Society, on Jan. 19 and reservations made that day surpassed the line’s previous single-day revenue record by nearly three times.
The strong demand generated for the ship’s inaugural season resulted in a new weekly sales record for RSSC that more than doubled the previous high. Currently, reservations for Seven Seas Explorer are limited to past cruisers with the line and will become widely available starting Feb. 4.
RSSC's Jason Montague, president and chief operating officer, said Seven Seas Explorer's maiden voyage is nearly sold out and demand for the inaugural season is extremely strong.
The ship's maiden voyage will be a 14-night cruise from Monte Carlo to Venice on July 20, 2016. The inaugural season highlights locations throughout the Mediterranean including Ibiza, Barcelona, St. Tropez and Venice.
