When you call your newest cruise ship “the most luxurious ship ever built,” you must be able to back it up. So what sets Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ 750-guest, 55,254-ton Seven Seas Explorer apart … and is it truly above and beyond?
There are the obvious features. Consider that the Regent Suite, the biggest and most opulent on the ship, measures a whopping 4,443 square feet. Not only does it boast a $250,000 custom-designed Steinway Arabesque grand piano, the bed is worth more than many homes. It has a Savoir No. 1 mattress worth $90,000, and between linens, the duvet, pillows and installation, the bed alone ended up costing about $150,000.
While those are over-the-top luxury features, the important thing is that the luxurious feel extends throughout the ship, not just in the fanciest suite.
With all of the pictures I have seen and the articles describing the amenities aboard the new Regent Seven Seas Explorer, I can see why this new ship is being touted as the "most luxurious cruise ship". Adding to this is Regent Seven Seas all inclusive cruising which includes such things as round-trip air, fine wines and spirits, unlimited internet access, sightseeing excursions in every port, and all gratuities. Luxury cruising at it's best.
