Seven Seas Splendor

A regal, relaxed luxury liner

Regent’s answer to an effortlessly luxurious liner is Seven Seas Splendor. Five hundred chandeliers and 46,000 square feet of Italian marble are at the heart of this meticulously detailed 746-passenger vessel. Additionally, each of the ship’s 373 suites boasts a private, furnished balcony so passengers can make the most of the priceless sea views.

In fact, much of the ship’s design aims to remind passengers of the ocean’s majestic presence, from the lively outdoor sports deck and breathtaking infinity-edged plunge pool contoured to the ship’s stern to the captain’s eye view from the Observation Deck Lounge. The ship’s unique dining venues share the same exacting eye for detail. Home cooks and experts alike will delight in the onboard culinary programming, highlighted by the Culinary Arts Kitchen and chef-guided Epicurean Explorer Tours, both a Seven Seas signature.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Guests can master their way around the stove courtesy of the on-board replica of a culinary institute kitchen that comes with 18 stations and high-quality cooking essentials. Executive chef Kathryn Kelly designed a curriculum that offers 16 exciting classes, including the paella-packed A Taste of Spain and A French Love Affair filled with classic food and wine pairings.
  • Suites may range from a roomy 307 square feet to a palatial 4,443 square feet, but they all share a regal design sensibility, with gold accented furniture, curved lines and a neutral color palate accented with muted jewel tones. Private, furnished balconies tie a final bow upon the ship’s all-suite accommodations.
  • The ship has no shortage of spots to soak up the sun. Teak lounge chairs surround the primary pool’s deck, flanked by two cascading whirlpools and a fleet of staff on hand to deliver towels and fruity drinks. An infinity-edged plunge pool contoured to the ship’s stern creates a breathtaking visual effect where the pool seemingly descends into the sea.
  • A lengthy activity list ensures endless potential for fun. A sunset match of bocce ball, miniature golf or shuffleboard with a cocktail in hand has never been so enticing, thanks to the elevated positioning of the ship’s sports deck.
  • The ship’s three lounges provide attractive spaces for an evening cocktail. The Meridian Lounge offers an elegant atmosphere; the Observation Lounge, situated in the traditional space of a ship’s observation deck, provides a front-row seat of the ship entering and departing ports; and the signature Splendor Lounge’s meticulous design and live music deliver a regal yet relaxed vibe.

Things to Know

  • The vessel’s well-equipped fitness center offers Pilates and yoga classes and Technogym cardio and strength equipment for free use. An outdoor jogging track will delight runners, who can enjoy the fresh sea breeze while getting in a few laps.
  • Guests staying in the lavish, 4,000-plus-square-foot Regent Suite also receive exclusive access to The Study, a private dining room accommodating 12.
  • Opt for the add-on experiential Epicurean Explorer Tours for a taste of local flavor. Before a cooking class in the Culinary Arts Kitchen, chefs guide offshore excursions where travelers can sample from markets, bazaars and off-the-beaten-path restaurants.
  • Eight dining options awaits passengers onboard. Begin the day with an espresso, freshly made omelet and the invigorating ocean breeze at the alfresco La Veranda. Come midday, you’ll be ready for some barbecue at the Pool Grill. And when it’s time for dinner, you’ll have a menu full of options. Classic Italian restaurant Sette Mari at La Veranda stands out with its pesto gnocchi that can be enjoyed from a romantic nook along the ship’s edge.
  • Evening entertainment options include lavish stage shows in the two-deck Constellation Theater. Those feeling lucky can try their hand at the ship’s casino while and cigar and art lovers should visit the Connoisseur Club, where they can bask in both from oversized leather armchairs.
