“Seven Seas Explorer”, the first super luxury cruise ship that Fincantieri is building for Regent Seven Seas Cruises was launched today at the shipyard in Sestri Ponente. Interior fittings will now begin, leading the ship to its delivery, scheduled in summer 2016.
The ceremony was attended for the shipowner by Robin Lindsay, executive vice president of vessel operations, while Fincantieri was represented, among others, by Raffaele Davassi, director of the Sestri Ponente’s shipyard. Godmother of the ceremony was Antonia Ronchi, an employee of Fincantieri.
“Seven Seas Explorer” will be the flagship of the fleet with its 56,000 gross tonnes, 223 meters in length and being able to accommodate 750 passengers in 377 spacious suites.
The new ship will be built using the most advanced environmental protection technologies. The interiors will be particularly sophisticated, with every attention paid to passenger comfort.
