The "most luxurious" cruise ship in the world docked in Sydney (NSW Australia) for the first time on Thursday, December 29th, ~3 years after COVID shut down the country's $6 billion industry.

RSSC-Regent's ship Seven Seas Explorer cost US$450 million to build, using an acre of marble, including a $9 million art collection featuring Chagall and Picasso.

The 412-m2 vessel has volume ~56000 GT-tons, 13 decks, 375 staterooms (all suites with outside balconies), a spa complex, a sports deck, several gourmet restaurants and extravagant lounges with unlimited drinks.

Prices for an 18-nights Sydney to Bali voyage start from US$22,260 per person with double occupancy.

According to Lisa Pile (Regent's Asia Pacific's Vice President), the boat was a game changer in the luxury cruise market and is different from the rest because she was "the most seductive ship in the world." 

Pile is predicting 2023 & 2024 would be record years for the Regent brand.

"We call it the most unrivalled space at sea...and we have the highest staff to guest ratio nearly a one on one to staff guest ratio."

The ship then set sail to Auckland (New Zealand).
