Fincantieri's Ancona shipyard floated out Seven Seas Grandeur, the third in a 55,000gt series for Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

Delivery is scheduled for November.

The 746-passenger vessel is the sister of 2020's Seven Seas Splendor and 2016's Seven Seas Explorer.

Additional inaugural sailing

Regent Seven Seas Cruises President Andrea DeMarco said Seven Seas Grandeur has proven so popular the line created an additional sailing for the inaugural season.

Orsinja Myshku, senior controller of Ancona shipyard’s economic administration and control office, served as madrina for the ceremony and cut a ribbon to smash a bottle of champagne on the bow. Gabriella Fonzo, senior director of sales, EMEA, represented Regent.
