A new sister ship to Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ Explorer is to be named Seven Seas Splendor.
The line sought suggestions from travel agents, passengers and employees for the ship’s name in a sweepstakes held in September.
Seven Seas Splendor was chosen among nearly 2,600 unique names from more than 14,000 submissions.
The 750-passenger luxury all-suite, all balcony vessel is due to enter service in the first quarter of 2020 – four years after the introduction of Seven Seas Explorer.
Details of the ship’s inaugural season have yet to be announced.
RSSC president and chief executive, Jason Montague, said: “The naming of a ship is an important milestone in maritime tradition and it is my pleasure to announce that the name of Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ new ship to launch in 2020 is Seven Seas Splendor.
“The extraordinary demand for Seven Seas Explorer has reinforced our decision to expand our fleet and Seven Seas Splendor will offer guests a fifth option that will provide unforgettable experiences in the world’s most compelling destinations, with the incredibly high standards of luxury and service that lure guests back again and again.”
