Regent Seven Seas Explorer is billed as the most luxurious cruise ship in the world. Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene of Monaco took the role of godmother.
Dubbed as the ‘most luxurious ship ever built’, at a whopping cost of $450 million, Regent Seven Seas Explorer boasts one of the highest space ratios and lowest guest to cruise ratios in the history of cruising.
Accompanied by her husband and Monaco's reigning monarch, Prince Albert II, the former Olympic swimmer took the role of godmother and cut a red velvet ribbon.
“It is an honor to be the godmother of this magnificent ship, Seven Seas Explorer," Princess Charlene of Monaco said. "I am also thrilled by the discussions taking place between my Foundation and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings to implement my Water Safety program on all their ships. Developing awareness of the risks attached to aquatic environments is, for me, a cause of most importance."
The new Seven Seas Explorer was built by the famed Fincantieri ship yard. Regent says that the Explorer is the most luxurious cruise ship ever built and that the 750 passengers it will carry per cruise will all be sleeping in suites.
The largest, called the Regent Suite, is actually bigger than the average American home, measuring in at 4,443 square feet. Guests staying in that two bedroom retreat will even get unlimited spa treatments.
“Seven Seas Explorer is the most luxurious ship ever built, and we are truly grateful and privileged to have Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene of Monaco serve as the ship’s godmother,” added Jason Montague, president and COO, Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “Our guests have waited patiently for over a decade for a new Regent Seven Seas Cruises ship, and once they sail Seven Seas Explorer I’m confident they will agree it was well worth the wait.”
Seven Seas Explorer will set sail on her maiden voyage on July 20.
