Regent Seven Seas Explorer: World’s Most Luxurious Ship

Anytime a new ship is launched it is very exciting for everyone involved: the lucky guests that are the first few to experience it; the CEO of the cruise line; the cruise line sales staff; the staff and crew on board; the travel agents that sell it.

There is an anticipation of what we will all find when it is finally revealed.

On Regent Seven Seas Explorer they thought of everything.

It is one of the reasons they can call it “The Most Luxurious Ship Ever Built”.

A few of the other reasons: the table settings, the linens, the theatre setup, the lighting throughout the ship, the magnificent foyer, the amenities in our suite, tea time, the incredible artwork, the remarkable food in EVERY restaurant. Everything was clearly thought through and built to exceptional standards.

Our 5-day inaugural cruise on board the Explorer exceeded my expectations and cemented Regent as a leader in luxury cruising.

Our cruise embarked from Barcelona. When we pulled in we were greeted by smiling faces eager to help with our bags in a very orderly manner. The embarkation process was smooth and we were on board in 30 minutes.

We were lucky enough to enjoy a one bedroom Seven Seas Suite onboard the Seven Seas Explorer. It has a foyer with a powder room and a living room area with a sofa and two chairs, a wet bar, a dining table and a desk.

The bedroom is perfect. The bed was extremely comfortable and the linens are of the highest quality. There is a vanity beside the bed with plenty of space and two bedside tables. One of the best features of the suite is the bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub, two sinks and a sizeable shower.

I would be remiss not to mention the incredible butler that accompanies the Seven Seas Suite. Our butler was incredibly attentive without being overbearing and his attention to detail was impressive.

I have dined on many cruise ships and for the most part the food experience has been outstanding. I was curious as to how Regent could elevate my food experience to be that much better than the premium cruise lines.

They did not disappoint. The food was outstanding. From the main dining room, the fine dining Italian and French restaurants to the more casual pool side grill and café there was always an option that suited our tastes and mood.

One of the highlights of Regent Seven Seas Explorer is the public spaces and décor. I would describe it as a 1920′ s design with a modern twist. The public spaces are very open and welcoming.

The theatre is outstanding – almost a cross between a 1920’s café and theatre. On the top deck they have a sports area with a sports court for tennis and basketball and a 9 hoe mini putt as well. I had a tour of the spacious Canyon Ranch Spa and the treatment rooms are spacious and they even have a couples treatment room – a perfect way to start your cruise! The gym was enormous with state of the art equipment as well as spinning classes and yoga classes all lead by professionals.

When you think of a luxury ship you might think of it as being stuffy and lacking atmosphere. Quite the opposite is true of Regent Seven Seas Explorer. From Cruise Director Ray’s opera singing at tea time to the deck party on the last evening to live music in all of the lounges, there is always something to do or somewhere to go to be entertained or to unwind.

Regent Seven Seas Explorer absolutely lived up to “The Most Luxurious Ship Ever Built” but it goes beyond the physical ship; the overall experience is one you will never forget and will be calling your Vision Travel advisor to plan your next cruise as soon as your return!
