Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ sixth ship, Seven Seas Grandeur, is set to debut on 18 November 2023 with a seven-night maiden voyage from Venice, Italy, to Barcelona, Spain.  

The 746 guests embarking on that first voyage will experience the new standard of service that Regent’s 548-strong crew are aiming to deliver onboard the luxury ship. 

“Seven Seas Grandeur has been inspired by the past and stunningly reimagined for the future, exemplifying our heritage of perfection,” says Caroline Smith, international managing director of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “The one-of-a-kind Regent Suite is an experience like no other. The ultimate retreat is complete with an in-suite spa, Tresse Minipool, and a lavish bedroom featuring a world-renowned Hastens bed. The ship will also offer impeccable personalised service, and dining in fabulous signature restaurants, including a reimagined Compass Rose and Prime 7.” 

The ship will be home to a multimillion-dollar art collection, featuring a one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted objet d’art known as Journey in Jewels, the first-ever Fabergé egg to be permanently exhibited at sea. Sarah Fabergé, great-granddaughter of late Russian jeweller Peter Carl Fabergé, is godmother to Seven Seas Grandeur, and will christen the ship at a gala in Miami, Florida, on 10 December 2023. 

Seven Seas Grandeur highlights Regent’s longstanding partnership with jewellery maison, Fabergé. In addition to being home of Journey in Jewels, Grandeur will also sail a ‘Spotlight on Fabergé’ voyage hosted by Sarah Fabergé. Embarking from Civitavecchia Port in Rome, Italy, on 1 July 2024 for 10 nights, ‘Spotlight on Fabergé’ will bring guests into the world of the jewellery maker with an onboard programme of events while also exploring the Mediterranean.  

During its maiden season, the ship will sail 17 voyages in the Caribbean with two transatlantic crossings. It will then spend spring 2024 sailing in the Mediterranean. 

“We cannot wait to launch Seven Seas Grandeur with a maiden season of incredible itineraries in the Caribbean,” says Smith. “Our guests sailing Grandeur’s maiden season will be able to deep dive into paradise in complete luxury. Our unlimited included shore excursions set us apart because they offer such an authentic way to get under the skin of a destination. From walking the historic streets of Antigua, Guatemala, and Cartagena, Colombia to exploring the reefs off the coasts of Honduras and the Cayman Islands, our guests will be able to tap into a range of interests and enjoy unforgettable experiences.”
