Feb. 21 naming festivities

Brinkley will preside at the Regent Seven Seas Cruises ship’s naming festivities on Feb. 21 in Miami.  

‘It’s fitting that the godmother of Seven Seas Splendor reflects timeless elegance, vitality and sophistication, as Regent has perfected all the details of luxury on board Seven Seas Splendor,’ said Jason Montague, president and CEO of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

And a woman captain, Serena Melani

‘The absolute most invigorating and luxurious way to travel the world is by cruising the seas,’ Brinkey said. ‘As a woman who strives to inspire other females to achieve their career and personal aspirations, I’m especially proud to be godmother of the first new cruise ship in maritime history to be captained by a female, the trailblazing Captain Serena Melani.’

Seven Seas Splendor is nearing completion at Fincantieri’s Ancona shipyard. During its inaugural season, the all-balcony-suite ship will sail the Caribbean and Mediterranean.
