When it arrives in 2016, Regent Seven Seas Explorer will be sailing in North America, using Miami as initial homeport. The Explorer ship will make its North American debut on December 2, 2016.
As part of her inaugural Caribbean season, Seven Seas Explorer will sail two round-trip voyages from Miami.
Yesterday Regent announced its last remaining cruises for 2016 season, including three voyages aboard Seven Seas Navigator and four new sailings aboard the Seven Seas Explorer. While the Explorer is making her way to North America for the last weeks of 2016, Regent Seven Seas Navigator is exploring South African ports.
Following the two Caribbean itineraries, Seven Seas Explorer will head to LA through the Panama Canal.
The ship will embark on a 14-day sailing on December 4 followed by a 10-day itinerary on December 18. The Explorer’s cruise for the 2017 New Year will be a 16-day Grand Canal Crossing to LA with stops throughout Central America and the Caribbean.
President and Chief Operating Officer for RSSC, Jason Montague, said the Seven Seas Explorer had been a labor of love for their CEO, Frank Del Rio, Executive Vice President, Robin Lindsay and the entire Regent team, so it was exciting to have that ship, the most luxurious ever built, make its North American debut in their hometown of Miami.
He also added that with two Miami roundtrip sailings and a maiden Panama Canal crossing, they were providing passengers “the opportunity to experience the unprecedented luxury” Seven Seas Explorer would offer with the convenience of departing from a domestic homeport.
