Seven Seas Splendor underway

Construction on Seven Seas Splendor has begun, with a number of executives all pressing the button to ignite the cutting torch at Fincantieri Ancona to shape the ship’s first plate of steel.

‘This is truly an exciting moment for us and we are delighted to work with the skilful engineers of Fincantieri Shipyard to build our new ship that will again raise the standards of luxury for the industry,’ says Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ president and chief executive officer Jason Montague.

The new 750-guest ship will join the Regent fleet in early 2020.
