Regent Seven Seas Cruises named its newest ship, the Seven Seas Grandeur, on Dec. 10 in Miami, with the Fabergé jewelry house playing a starring role.
Sarah Fabergé named the vessel as the ship’s godmother, and Regent unveiled the first Fabergé egg to permanently reside at sea — Journey in Jewels, a custom-designed piece on display in the Grandeur’s atrium.
Sarah Fabergé is the great-granddaughter of Peter Carl Fabergé, the Russian jeweler who founded the Fabergé company.
The Fabergé egg is the centerpiece of a 1,600-piece art collection on the Grandeur, including works by Picasso. Regent’s first digital art tour of the Grandeur is available on the Regent mobile app.
The naming ceremony was attended by travel advisors, past guests and other VIPs. Emmy and Tony Award-winning actress Kristin Chenoweth performed.
The 746-passenger Grandeur is Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ sixth ship and a sister to the Seven Seas Splendor and Seven Seas Explorer. With a crew of 548, the ship has among the highest staff-to-guest ratios in the industry, Regent said.
The vessel features Regent’s signature restaurants Compass Rose, Chartreuse and Prime 7 among its eight dining venues, which are serving 130 dishes created exclusively for the Seven Seas Grandeur.
Following the gala event,
guests on the Grandeur embarked on a three-day sailing to the Bahamas.
