UK Cruise Convention: Regent Seven Seas Cruises to order new ship

Regent Seven Seas Cruises is close to finalising an order for a new ship.

President Mark Conroy said three shipyards are bidding for the business and a decision is expected by September with delivery slated for 2011 or 2012.

The vessel will be an all-balcony, all-suite vessel, like Regent’s flagships Seven Seas Mariner and Seven Seas Voyager, but hold about 800 passengers, which is 100 more than those two ships.

Standard cabins will be slightly larger than on Mariner and Voyager – 400 square feet instead of 350 – and it will have more restaurants and probably an entire deck devoted to the spa.
