Seven Seas Splendor, the highly anticipated, ultra-luxurious ship joining Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ fleet in February 2020, will voyage across Europe during her inaugural 15 destination-rich summer sailings, the company announced today.

When Regent Seven Seas Cruises opened bookings for Seven Seas Splendor’s winter 2020 voyages on April 11, the company recorded the busiest booking day in its 26-year history. The ship’s inaugural voyage on February 7, 2020, takes guests on a 14-night transatlantic journey from Barcelona, Spain to Miami.
“Regent Seven Seas Cruises is 100 percent committed to perfecting luxury ocean cruising. We continue to raise the bar with our all-inclusive voyages to immersive destinations aboard the most extravagant vessels you can imagine,” said Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “In addition to creating the standard-setting Seven Seas Splendor and Seven Seas Explorer, we recently invested $125 million to ensure our other three ultra-luxurious ships in our fleet, Seven Seas Mariner, Seven Seas Voyager and Seven Seas Navigator, offer the fresh, compelling, high-quality experiences guests enjoy on our newest ships.”
Montague added that two awards bestowed on the company this summer reflect the fleetwide enhancements and crew who work aboard the ships. TravelAge West magazine readers and travel agent professionals presented Regent Seven Seas Cruises with the Small Cruise Line with Highest Client Satisfaction Award during the publication’s annual WAVE Awards in June, and Signature Luxury Travel & Style magazine’s 2018 Cruise Awards presented Regent Seven Seas Cruises with its annual award for Best Small Ship (Seven Seas Explorer) in July.
“The talented people who work on our ships continue to delight guests and exceed their high expectations, for both our loyal guests and guests who are first-time cruisers with us,” Montague said. “As we grow our family to include Seven Seas Splendor, we look forward to more guests enjoying the all-inclusive ultra-luxury experience that we continue to perfect.”
