World through my eyes
Well, its just two days to the Valentine. So, too late to plan for now, but not too late to plan for something for the next valentine’s day. And actually it is so grand the you will literally need a year to plan. And, the idea is that you can promise your love on this valentine to give him or her a ‘big’ surprise on the next one. No more mystery, but it is real big. We are talking about a suite on board a cruise ship. The new most luxurious residence at sea will be perched on the 14th deck of Seven Seas Splendor, above the bridge and overlooking the ship’s bow when she sets sail in February 2020.
As the largest suite ever constructed on a luxury cruise ship with more than 3,000 square-feet of interior accommodations, the Regent Suite is 4,443 total square-feet of palatial elegance at sea, complete with an in-suite spa retreat featuring a personal sauna, steam room and treatment area with unlimited spa treatments, unobstructed 270-degree views over the ship’s bow from the 1,300 square-foot wraparound veranda, and a glass-enclosed solarium sitting area on top of the bridge for a Captain’s view to see the world’s most beautiful destinations as Seven Seas Splendor arrives at each port. Guests in the Regent Suite enjoy a dedicated personal butler to manage all the details of the guests’ experience, a personal car with driver and guide in every port, and the exquisite comfort of a custom, hand-crafted $200,000 Vividus bed from the renowned Hästens brand.
And unlike the most exclusive residences and retreats on land, the stunning views from Regent Suite’s floor-to-ceiling wall of windows along three sides of the ship change daily as guests sail to iconic destinations and hidden gems across the world on Seven Seas Splendor voyages.

“The Regent Suite is the ultimate example of how Seven Seas Splendor will astonish luxury travellers with an unrivalled experience, and it reflects the superior level of detail you’ll uncover throughout this stunning ship,” said Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “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.”
There is only one Regent Suite on board Seven Seas Splendor, and it builds on the renowned reputation of the Regent Suite on Seven Seas Explorer. The Regent Suite master bath and in-suite spa are 30 percent larger on Seven Seas Splendor to incorporate a stunning floor-to-ceiling ocean-view shower. Also different: A custom-made Treesse minipool spa is placed on the front balcony, providing incredible views from the glow of dawn to the setting sun while guests soak and relax while sipping a glass of Veuve Clicquot. The fully-stocked bar bordering the living room and solarium allows for unobstructed ocean views while you recline in comfort as a personal butler mixes your favourite beverage. At 4,443 square-feet, the Regent Suite is nearly twice as large as the average American home and 20 times larger than the average cruise ship stateroom. With an all-inclusive price of $11,000 per night based on double occupancy, the Regent Suite is already sold-out for nearly all of Seven Seas Splendor’s 2020 inaugural season sailings.
Perfected Bedrooms and Spa Suite
The centrepiece for the luxurious master bedroom is a custom-made $200,000 Vividus bed from the renowned Hästens brand. The king-sized continental bed is being built by four master artisans at the Hästens workshop in Köping, Sweden and features a pinewood frame, steel springs, and layers of flax, horsetail hair, and cotton and wool batting. With over 300 hours of labor and an 18-month timeline to complete, the mattress will be the most luxurious bed at sea, allowing guests to sleep in unparalleled comfort and care each night after exploring the world during the day.

Luxurious Living and Dining Areas
The interior décor features exotic woods, handcrafted furnishings, Italian marble and golden chandeliers. Curated art sculptures and priceless works of art adorn the suite. Tillberg Design of Sweden conceived the Regent Suite décor. The guest bedroom in the two-bedroom, two-and-one-half bath suite reflects the master suite design with a separate and inviting sitting area, walk-in closet and private balcony. The Regent Suite accommodates up to six guests in total.
A Pre-Voyage Concierge will take care of the delicate details of dressing guests’ Vividus bed in their preferred linens and pillows, place guests’ selection from the aromatic menu in the suite, and ensure guests’ choice of designer bath and skincare products are ready in their bath. The Head Butler serves as a dedicated personal assistant to Regent Suite guests, coordinating spa services, daily activities and ensuring the car and driver meets the guests at their preferred location on shore.
