The monumental task of constructing Regent Seven Seas Explorer, dubbed the world’s most luxurious cruise ship, is to be the subject of an exciting new documentary on Channel 5.
The two-part documentary, which airs at 9pm on Friday 2nd December, will follow engineers and designers over 18 months as they work on the design and build of the epic ship.
The first episode will begin with CEO Frank Del Rio explaining his vision for Seven Seas Explorer, and will follow him on his quest to source £5 million worth of art to adorn the vessel. It goes on to follow the interior designers as they try to balance unparalleled luxury with practicality and engineering. The second episode is a race against time as 1,500 workers toil to ensure that all the fixtures and fittings are ready for when the first guests are welcomed on board.
Graham Sadler, managing director of Regent Seven Seas Cruises said: “This fascinating documentary illustrates the level of detail that went into constructing Seven Seas Explorer and shows why it has been described as the most luxurious ship ever built. The programmes are an excellent opportunity to demonstrate to a huge audience our interpretation of true luxury and the real meaning of all-inclusive as delivered with Regent Seven Seas Cruises. I hope that those who watch it from the travel trade are able to use the information to inform their valued customers, as I am sure many more people will want to cruise on not only the most luxurious ship, but on the most luxurious fleet in the world”
Seven Seas Explorer was launched in July 2016 and delivers an ultra-luxury cruise experience unlike any other. Featuring unparalleled extravagance, the 750-passenger vessel carries some of the highest space-to-guest and crew-to-guest ratios of any cruise ship.
The ship is currently sailing around the Caribbean out of Miami, and will return to Europe in spring 2017 to sail a variety of itineraries around the Mediterranean and Northern Europe, many starting in Southampton.
