Regent Seven Seas Cruises (Regent) has named its new ship Seven Seas Grandeur ahead of the sixth fleet member’s scheduled delivery in the fourth quarter of 2023.

“The culmination of a 30-year heritage of perfection, Seven Seas Grandeur is the latest evolution in luxury cruising,” said Jason Montague, president and CEO of Regent. “We are immensely proud that by the end of 2023 we will have welcomed a sixth member to the world’s most luxurious fleet. It’s a testament to the expanding demand for luxury cruising that the Regent brand is driving thanks to our perfectly sized ships offering unrivalled space at sea.”

The new name was revealed in a video, which also unveiled the reimagined design of Regent’s signature restaurant, Compass Rose, which will be featured on Seven Seas Grandeur.

Designed by Studio DADO, Seven Seas Grandeur’s Compass Rose venue will feature a cascading waterfall sculpture made from laser-cut metal and hand-blown glass at its entrance, as well as a canopy of interwoven crystal and wood-edge illuminated trees to greet guests once they are inside. At night, thousands of individually placed crystal-faceted leaves on the pillars and branches will be illuminated, as will hundreds of lights surrounding the windows.

The new design will also include a custom mural created by Confluent Studios. The mural will be made from gold leaf and Verre Eglomisé and depict the flora and fauna at the forest’s edge.

“Restaurants onboard all Regent ships are exquisite, but for Seven Seas Grandeur’s Compass Rose we wanted to create a space that was truly a feast for the eyes,” said Yohandel Ruiz, founding partner of Studio DADO. “This new design of Compass Rose will pique guests’ curiosity and sense of wonder before they have even set foot in the restaurant, and go on to delight with a sumptuous, personalised meal in dramatic and beautiful surroundings. It’s a dining experience that they will regale friends and family with time and again.”

The 55,254gt Seven Seas Grandeur will have capacity for 750 guests and she is the sister ship of Seven Seas Explorer and Seven Seas Splendor, which launched in 2016 and 2020 respectively.
