The world’s most luxurious ship

The ship that claims to be the most luxurious ship ever built has just turned one. And while this boast is bold, there may be substance to the self-praise.

Built for around $450 million, the Seven Seas Explorer hosts 750 guests in 375 spacious suites. There are no standard cabins on this cruise, just pure luxury all the way.

The Regent Suite, which houses a $190,000 bed and costs about $10,000 a night, is booked out months in advance.

Even in mid-range suites, your drinks, tips, shore excursions and specialty restaurants are all covered.

Little wonder then, that the cruise line is known for the Most Inclusive Luxury Experience™. 

“The meticulous craftsmanship and artistry behind Seven Seas Explorer are undeniable,” said Jason Montague, President and chief executive of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

Seven Seas Explorer has exceeded every expectation, thanks to each and every member of the exceptional staff and crew that deliver the highly personalised service for which Regent is renowned. If you haven’t had a chance to sail aboard Seven Seas Explorer, this is a great opportunity to see what you’ve been missing.”

Each of the ship’s suites feature European king-sized Suite Slumber Beds furnished with exquisite linens, plus huge bathrooms embellished in rich marble and decorative tiles. It’s akin to a five-star hotel on water. Don’t believe us? Why not see for yourself?

Regent Cruises claims that the Explorer’s specialty restaurants, onboard activities and personalised service set its cruise experience apart from the rest.

And the ship boasts the best art collection at sea. The multiple Picassos hanging on the walls go a long way to proving that claim.

Although many of us may only dream of ever stepping aboard such a lavish vessel, if you’re in the market for a once-in-a-lifetime cruise, then this is your ship.
