After a naming contest that brought thousands of suggestions, Regent Seven Seas Cruises has chosen Seven Seas Splendor as the name of its new ship, scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2020.
The second Explorer-class ship will embody and enhance the elegance and style and amenities that have earned sister-ship Seven Seas Explorer honors as the most luxurious ship ever built since she was launched, promises Jason Montague, president and CEO of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
“The extraordinary demand for Seven Seas Explorer has reinforced our decision to expand our fleet and Seven Seas Splendor will offer guests a fifth option that will provide unforgettable experiences in the world’s most compelling destinations, with the incredibly high standards of luxury and service that lure guests back again and again.”
Regent sought suggestions from its valued travel agents, loyal guests and employees for the ship’s name in a sweepstakes held in September. Seven Seas Splendor was chosen among nearly 2,600 unique names from more than 14,000 submissions. The new all-suite, all-balcony ship will have a capacity of 750 guests. Details of the ship’s innovations are promised soon.
