Regent Seven Seas Cruises took delivery of Seven Seas Splendor, the ship it’s touting as ‘luxury perfected,’ from Fincantieri’s Ancona yard today.

The sister of 2016’s Seven Seas Explorer, built by Fincantieri’s Sestri Ponente, the new ship measures 55,000gt and can accommodate 750 passengers in all-balcony suites.

The handover ceremony was attended by Jason Montague, president and CEO of Regent Seven Seas Cruises, and Luigi Matarazzo, GM of Fincantieri’s Merchant Ships Division.

Feb. 21 naming ceremony

Seven Seas Splendor is due to be named Feb. 21 at festivities in Miami with supermodel Christie Brinkley serving as the godmother.

A third ship in the series is planned for 2023 delivery.
