THERE’S no denying we’ve well and truly sailed into a new era of cruising with an experience available for every discerning traveller however this luxurious newcomer just may have set a new benchmark.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises have just announced details of their exclusive Regent Suite on board Seven Seas Splendor – which makes its maiden voyage in February 2020 - which will cost close to a staggering AU$16,000 a night and is said to be the largest suite ever built on a luxury cruise ship.
Perched on the 14th deck and twice the size of the average Australian home, the patatial 412 square-metre Regent Suite, styled by Tillberg Design of Sweden, boasts a floor-to-ceiling ocean-view shower, in-suite spa retreat featuring a personal sauna, a treatment area with unlimited spa treatments and 270-degree views of some of the world’s most beautiful detsinations from the wraparound veranda.
No expense has been spared with the interior décor featuring bespoke art works and sculptures, exotic woods, handcrafted furishings, Italian marble and golden chandeliers.
Those living it up in the Regent Suite will have a dedicated personal butler, a personal car with driver and guide in every port, however the peace de resistence is the custom, hand-crafted $280,000 Hastens Vividus bed, built by four master artisans over 300 hours.
“In the Regent Suite, whether you’re entertaining friends in your elegant living room, enjoying caviar or lobster in your dining room, relaxing on your hand-crafted Hästens Vividus bed, delighting in unlimited spa services in your personal in-suite treatment area, or exploring a seaside village with your personal car and guide coordinated by your dedicated head butler, the holistic experience represents luxury perfected,” said Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
Those who covet the idea of sailing the high seas like a celebrity better get in line - the Regent Suite is already sold-out for nearly all of Seven Seas Splendor’s 2020 inaugural season sailings through some of the most desirable destinations in the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, Asia, Caribbean and North America.
