Review of Seven Seas Splendor

Scheduled for launch in 2020, Seven Seas Splendor cruise ship is the newest RSSC liner, with sistership Explorer (2016) and fleet mate to the older Voyager, Navigator and Mariner.

History - construction and ownership

Regent Cruises (officially Regent Seven Seas Cruises / RSSC) is an all-inclusive, top-luxury cruise brand fka "Radisson Seven Seas". Until 2014, the company (as part of "Prestige Cruise Holdings") was owned by Apollo Management LP - one of the world's largest private investment equity funds. Since September 2014, RSSC and the sister company Oceania Cruises are owned by NCL Norwegian (shipowner), acquired at the total cost of USD 3 billion. Regent cruise ships are medium-sized, with capacity up to 800 passengers. The fleet consists of 6-star rated all-suite and all-balcony vessels with a space-to-guest ratio around 70 and staff-to-guest ratio 1-to-1,6 (some of industry's best). As building cost per berth, RSSC liners are among the world's most expensive ships.

For vessel's interior design, RSSC contracted the Florida-based firm "Studio DADO". The DADO-designed venues include Observation Lounge, Constellation Theater, Card Room, Connoisseur Club, Pacific Rim Restaurant, ship's Spa as well as all the 55 suites (categories Penthouse, Grand, Superior).

Cruise itinerary program

Seven Seas Splendor itinerary program is based on Caribbean, North America and Europe (Mediterranean) cruises, with Transatlantic repositioning crossings and Panama Canal transition between Florida and California. The inaugural cruise season (2020 summer) is in Europe, featuring 15 port destinations, including Italian and French Riviera, Greek Islands, British Isles (see the list of all scheduled inaugural itineraries in the ship's "wiki" section).


Like all Regent ships, Seven Seas Splendor is an all-suite vessel. The number of suite categories is 16, with a total of 375 cabins, of which all have private balconies. The largest staterooms are the Regent Suites (2915 ft2).

The cost of the Regent Suite on the new Splendor ship signifies the ultimate Regent cruise luxury package experience. For an amazing 3875 ft2 suite accommodation (1181 m2, with the balcony), guest can enjoy the superior pampering vacation travel that the Regent cruise line is worldwide famous with. This accommodation is not only the largest but also the most expensive one at sea - yours for just GBP 4,800 per person, per day.
