On January 26th was held the float-out ceremony (at Fincantieri's Ancona yard) for Seven Seas Grandeur - the 3rd newbuild that Fincantieri is constructing for RSSC/Regent Seven Seas Cruises (luxury brand owned by NCLH-Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings).
Grandeur's delivery and inauguration are currently scheduled for November 2023.
Just like the first two ships of her class, Seven Seas Grandeur has 13 decks and 375 staterooms, providing accommodation for maximum 829 passengers. The luxurious boat features one of the industry's highest staff-to-passenger ratios (1 to 1,6) and the latest environmental protection technologies. The interiors are particularly sophisticated, with attention paid to the guest experience.
Besides RSSC to which Fincantieri delivered the boats Seven Seas Explorer (2016) and Seven Seas Splendor (2020), the shipowner NCLH also owns and manages the subsidiary NCL-Norwegian Cruise Line (which will receive 5x PRIMA Class liners from Fincantieri) and Oceania (for which are ordered two ALLURA Class ships).
