The culmination of a 30-year "Heritage of Perfection"

Seven Seas Grandeur™ was floated from the building dry dock on January 26, 2023, marking a major construction milestone. Luxury travelers can see the moment the traditional good luck champagne bottle was shattered against her hull during the float-out ceremony here.

“While our new ships are always highly anticipated Seven Seas Grandeur has proven to be so popular, we had to create an additional sailing for her inaugural season,” said Andrea DeMarco, President of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “The incredible reception for Seven Seas Grandeur is a testament not only to the strong demand for luxury cruising but also for Regent’s position as the leader in this space with every luxury included, unmatched hospitality, and unrivaled space at sea. We are excited and immensely proud to welcome guests on board Seven Seas Grandeur later this year.”

Orsinja Myshku, Senior Controller of Ancona shipyard’s Economic Administration and Control Office, served as madrina of the ceremony, cutting a ribbon following a prayer by the shipyard chaplain. The dry dock of Seven Seas Grandeur was then flooded, officially completing the ceremony. The event was attended by Regent’s Senior Director of Sales, EMEA, Gabriella Fonzo who thanked Fincantieri for their partnership and collaboration. 

Regent’s sixth ship and the latest addition to The World’s Most Luxurious Fleet™, Seven Seas Grandeur will set sail in November 2023, cruising 18 incredible voyages in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean, as well as two fascinating transatlantic crossings, all ranging from seven to 16 nights in length. The inaugural voyage collection includes a new maiden sailing – added due to strong demand – which spends seven nights discovering the Adriatic and Western Mediterranean from Venice (Trieste), Italy to Barcelona, Spain.

Now afloat at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Ancona, Italy, final-stage construction on Seven Seas Grandeur will focus on her lavish suites, elegant lounges, and exquisite restaurants that will all embody Regent’s Heritage of Perfection.
