NEWS: The newest most luxurious residence at sea is on deck 14 of the Regent Seven Seas Splendor which, for $11,000/night/dbl., features a $200,000 hand-crafted bed. Launching in February 2020, the RSSC Splendor’s Regent suite features more than 3,000 sq. ft. of interior space and a total of 4,443 sq. ft. including the veranda.
The king-sized, hand-crafted, $200,000 Vividus bed from the renowned Hastens brand is being built by four master artisans at the Hästens workshop in Köping, Sweden and features a pinewood frame, steel springs, and layers of flax, horsetail hair, and cotton and wool batting. With over 300 hours of labour and an 18-month timeline to complete, the mattress will be the most luxurious bed at sea, allowing luxury cruise passengers to sleep in unparalleled comfort and care each night after exploring the world during the day.
The luxury cruise suite features an in-suite spa retreat with a personal sauna, steam room and treatment area with unlimited spa treatments. Enjoy unobstructed 270-degree views over the ship’s bow from the 1,300-square-foot wraparound veranda, and a glass-enclosed solarium sitting area on top of the bridge for a Captain’s view to see the world’s most beautiful destinations.
The luxury cruise ship suite sleeps six cruise passengers who also enjoy first-class domestic air accommodations, a dedicated personal butler to manage all the details of the cruise passengers’ experience, and a personal car with driver and guide in every port.
And unlike the most exclusive residences and retreats on land, the stunning views from Regent Suite’s floor-to-ceiling wall of windows along three sides of the cruise ship change daily as guests sail to iconic destinations and hidden gems around the world.
“The Regent Suite is the ultimate example of how Seven Seas Splendor will astonish luxury travellers with an unrivaled experience, and it reflects the superior level of detail you’ll uncover throughout this stunning luxury cruise ship,” said Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
There is only one Regent Suite on board Seven Seas Splendor, and it builds on the renowned reputation of the Regent Suite on Seven Seas Explorer.
The Regent Suite master bath and in-suite spa are 30 per cent larger on Seven Seas Splendor to incorporate a stunning floor-to-ceiling ocean-view shower.
Also different is the custom-made Treesse mini-pool spa placed on the front balcony, providing incredible views from the glow of dawn to the setting sun while cruise passengers soak and relax while sipping a glass of Veuve Clicquot.
The fully-stocked bar bordering the living room and solarium allows for unobstructed ocean views while you recline in comfort as a personal butler mixes your favourite beverage.
The Regent Suite’s Italian marble- and stone-adorned spa treatment area with gilded golden accents offers a full sauna, heated relaxation loungers and multi-jet shower, plus unlimited complimentary in-suite spa treatments.
A separate sitting area in the master bedroom features a sumptuous sofa and large flat-screen 4K ultra high-definition television. The guest bedroom in the two-bedroom, two-and-one-half bath suite reflects the master suite design with a separate and inviting sitting area, walk-in closet and private balcony.
The interior décor features exotic woods, handcrafted furnishings, Italian marble and golden chandeliers. Curated art sculptures and priceless works of art adorn the suite. Tillberg Design of Sweden conceived the Regent Suite décor.
Regent Suite cruise passengers also have exclusive access to an additional private dining room every evening in The Study located on Deck 11, where they can host a cocktail reception or enjoy fine dining selections from the exquisite steakhouse, Prime 7, or the modern French restaurant, Chartreuse.
A Pre-Voyage Concierge will take care of the delicate details of dressing guests’ Vividus bed in their preferred linens and pillows, place guests’ selection from the aromatic menu in the suite, and ensure guests’ choice of designer bath and skincare products are ready in their bath.
The Head Butler serves as a dedicated personal assistant to Regent Suite cruise passengers, coordinating spa services, daily activities and ensuring the car and driver meets the guests at their preferred location on shore.
Cruise passengers will enjoy awe-inspiring social spaces as well as 375 beautifully appointed, all-balcony suites ranging from the 307-square-foot, entry-level Veranda Suite, to the lavish Regent suite.
Every part of the ship has a distinctive look, all featuring intricate design details that create a gorgeous and relaxing environment for guests as they sail through some of the most desirable destinations in the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, Asia, Caribbean and North America.
Upon opening reservations for Seven Seas Splendor in April 2018, Regent Seven Seas Cruises had the best single booking day in the brand’s 26-year history, accounting for a 32 per cent increase over the previous all-time high.
