Regent Seven Seas Cruises recently launched its first voyage in just under 18 months with new ship Seven Seas Splendour cruising from Southampton. Sailing with an enhanced SailSAFE health and safety programme, which includes 100 per cent vaccination of both guests and crew, the voyage is believed to be the first to carry international travellers on a UK cruise since the industry-wide pause in operations began in March last year.
The ship returned to Southampton on September 22, cruising into the new Horizon Cruise Terminal, before sailing a 14-night voyage to Barcelona, Spain visiting Bordeaux, France and Lisbon, Portugal, among other destinations. Seven Seas Splendour will spend October and November exploring the Mediterranean before crossing the Atlantic for a season in the Caribbean.
Jason Montague, President, Regent Seven Seas Cruises said in a statement that the cruise represents yet another huge step forward as it returns to luxury travel. He mentioned that he is guests who have waited patiently, and for the crew and team members across our global offices who have worked so hard to get to the moment.
He also mentioned that the Regent family is finally reunited, and delighted to provide guests with the unrivalled Regent experience with every luxury included, while sailing the world, once more. Helmed by Captain Diego Michelozzi, the inaugural sailing circles the United Kingdom with ports of call including Edinburgh, Scotland; Belfast, Northern Ireland; and Liverpool, England.
