MIAMI (May 18, 2020) – Regent Seven Seas Cruises®, the leading luxury ocean cruise line, has launched Return with Regent, a brand-new offer to inspire guests to travel the world once more with confidence. Along with Reduced Deposits, for extra flexibility, plus a generous $1,000 Shipboard Credit, the offer includes the security of Regent Reassurance which allows guests to cancel their cruise for any reason up to 15 days before departure date and receive a 100% Future Cruise Credit.

Valid for new bookings made by July 31, 2020, Return with Regent, is applicable to all sailings through 2022, expanding the line’s “cancel for any reason” policy to cover all possible destinations and voyages.

“We know first-hand that many of our guests have been planning and dreaming of their next luxury vacation over the last few weeks and I hope that Return with Regent gives them the confidence and comfort in their decision to book a cruise,” said Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “We aim to provide not only the security to sail again with the option to cancel for any reason up to 15 days before departure date, but also added flexibility with Reduced Deposits. We hope to stir inspiration to travel as well, with $1,000 Shipboard Credit and hundreds of cruises to choose from across the world, all the way up to 2022.”

Global Exploration and Indulgence With $1,000 Shipboard Credit

Return with Regent means guests can indulge their built-up wanderlust on a choice of hundreds of sailings around the globe, using their $1,000 Shipboard Credit to enhance immersive exploration or to fully take advantage of the luxurious amenities found on board.

Adventures abound in the tropical paradises of the Caribbean and South Pacific Islands, as well as in the intoxicating locales of South America and Asia. The eclectic history and culture of Europe can be rediscovered in spell-binding destinations from Baltic enclaves to picturesque seaside villages of the Mediterranean, while sojourns exploring Africa, Alaska and Australia and New Zealand await too.

Regent Choice small group tours, which are designed for groups of a maximum of 16 travelers, offering a more exclusive experience, can be purchased using the $1,000 Shipboard Credit. Or, for an even greater personalized destination discovery, a private car and driver can also be reserved in many ports of call.

If guests prefer to spend the day relaxing on board, the line’s modern five-ship fleet are a haven of tranquil restoration, with plenty of opportunity to spend the $1,000 Shipboard Credit in a myriad of indulgence. The new Serene Spa and Wellness offers a range of restorative, globally inspired treatments that sooth and unwind. Relieve pain and therapeutically invigorate and revitalize your skin with the one-of-a-kind Deep Sea Heat Mask & Massage or embark on a global ritual of wellness that explores time-honored therapies from multiple destinations with the Around the World massage treatment.

Alternatively, foodies can expand their culinary knowledge and skills in the Culinary Arts Kitchen, found exclusively on board Seven Seas Splendor and Seven Seas Explorer®. While premium beverages such as fine wines and spirits are included in the cruise fare, an occasion may call for a libation from Regent’s onboard Connoisseur Wine Menu — perhaps a bottle of Louis Roederer “Cristal” 2007 to toast a special anniversary or a velvety Vega Sicilia Unico 2005 Tempranillo, simply to celebrate a perfectly cooked steak.

Spacious and Luxurious Ships, With Every Luxury Included

Sailings with Regent offer an unrivaled experience with every luxury included with guests enjoying impeccable personalized service throughout spacious and lavishly designed public areas, including expansive, open-air pool and sports decks, and a number of al-fresco dining venues.

Suites are thoughtfully appointed and luxuriously relaxing, nearly all with large verandas, perfect for enjoying the fresh sea air while sipping a pre-dinner cocktail or mocktail at sundown. Exquisite gourmet cuisine in a range of specialty restaurants are completely complimentary, along with dazzling shows in grand theatres. In addition, free Wi-Fi gives guests the chance to stay in touch with loved ones back home.

MIAMI (Feb. 24, 2020) — Regent Seven Seas Cruises®, the world’s leading luxury ocean cruise line, hosted an elegant and glamorous christening gala in Miami to welcome its newest ship that defines Luxury Perfected, Seven Seas Splendor.

Exclusive guests, including travel partners, local community leaders, media and luxury travelers, were invited to the private black-tie evening ceremony on board Seven Seas Splendor to celebrate the all-suite, all-balcony luxury cruise ship. In addition, more than 35,000 people watched the ceremony broadcast live on Facebook and YouTube.

Seven Seas Splendor is the epitome of luxury perfected,” said Frank Del Rio, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. “Every ship we launch gets even better, and Seven Seas Splendor is magnificent. The collaboration between the designers, engineers, craftsmen, hotel and restaurant teams, and the crew onboard, all brings the renowned Regent experience to life on this beautiful ship. Seven Seas Splendor is a celebration of excellence, friendship, success and luxury.”

Seven Seas Splendor is helmed by 30-year veteran Captain Serena Melani, the first woman to captain a newly built ocean cruise ship. In acknowledging this pioneering honor during her remarks, Captain Melani told the audience following a standing ovation that women can achieve any goal with perseverance and hard work, and that the ship’s 550 crew members deserve recognition for providing luxury travelers with the highest levels of personalized service and comfort on board.

Another woman trailblazer followed Captain Melani on stage. Honorary Godmother Christie Brinkley delivered the traditional maritime blessing — “I hereby name this ship Seven Seas Splendor. May God bless her an all who sail on her” — which officially christened the vessel. The world-famous supermodel, glamorous actress, proud mother and successful entrepreneur then depressed a button which sent a 15-liter Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut champagne smashing against the ship’s hull to symbolically welcome the newest member of the Regent Seven Seas Cruises fleet.

“Gorgeous is the word I use to describe Seven Seas Splendor,” Brinkley said. “All the details on this ship are amazing, from the artistic style of the Italian marble, the artwork and chandeliers, to the sculpture of the mythical dragon outside Pacific Rim. Every inch of this light and bright ship is filled with luxurious details. My parents had cruised on Regent ships. If they were here today, they would be so excited and proud for me to be Godmother to Seven Seas Splendor.”

To conclude the celebration, guests were treated to an unforgettable concert by four-time GRAMMY-award winning British singer-songwriter, Seal, whose performance wowed the audience. Seal’s multi-genre set featured his hit songs “Kiss From A Rose” and “Crazy,” as well as classics from his most recent 2017 album Standards, which was inspired by his love of Rat Pack-era jazz, swing, and rhythm and blues. He performed several Frank Sinatra signature songs, including “Luck Be A Lady,” “That’s Life” and “It Was a Very Good Year,” as well as Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me” and the classic R&B song, “I Put a Spell on You.”

Guests in the Regent Suite also delight in first-class air accommodations, a dedicated personal butler to manage all the details of the guests’ experience, and a personal car with driver and guide in every port.

Seven Seas Splendor features a Culinary Arts Kitchen with 18 stations for hands-on gourmet cooking classes presented by master chef instructors, and Serene Spa & Wellness™, a new globally inspired spa brand created for Seven Seas Splendor offering exclusive treatments that integrate techniques and ingredients from destinations around the world to soothe both the body and mind.

The ship’s exquisite restaurants include Compass Rose, the largest specialty restaurant at sea; Pacific Rim, a dramatic Pan-Asian restaurant with a mythical dragon greeting guests; Prime 7, an intimate and elegant steakhouse; Chartreuse, featuring classic French fare with a modern twist; and Sette Mari at La Veranda, serving guests authentic Italian specialties and featuring stunning, over-water alcove seating that juts out over the ocean for an even closer connection to the sea, surrounded on three sides by inspiring, magnificent views.

This winter, Seven Seas Splendor cruises the tropical paradises of the Caribbean and Mexican Riviera, which includes two crossings of the Panama Canal and one unique Southern Caribbean cruise from Miami to New York City. In spring, Seven Seas Splendor will traverse the Atlantic Ocean for her inaugural European season, offering cultural and historically rich ports of call in two of the world’s most popular regions, the Mediterranean and Northern Europe.
