Travelers love their first look at a razzle-dazzle, new cruise ship. So, this week, we’re excited to report that — for the first time in 10 years — Regent Seven Seas Cruises is building a new luxury cruise ship in a new class!

What’s to know? The ultra-luxury, 77,000-gross-ton vessel will launch in 2026. Serving up to 850 guests, this new ship will be named Seven Seas Prestige. 

Seven Seas Prestige, debuting in 2026, continues our legacy of revolutionizing ultra luxury travel as she will transcend luxury in every way,” says Andrea DeMarco, president of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. Guests can expect beautifully appointed suites, and lavish, well-designed restaurants, bars, lounges and public areas.

In addition, this luxurious new ship will deliver one of the cruise industry’s highest passenger-to-space ratios, the line says. Guests will certainly have plenty of space to spread out, relax, dine and enjoy onboard entertainment, enrichment and services.

Most notably, DeMarco says the added space means some new suite categories. Regent Seven Seas also plans “a reimagination of the palatial Regent Suite, plus new dining experiences, all to be revealed at a later date,” she adds.

New Ship: The First of Two

The line’s newest ships prior to this new class have been the highly successful Explorer-class vessels. They launched in 2016, 2020 and 2023. While we don’t know much yet about the interior of Regent Seven Seas’ new class of ship, readers will find a few exterior renderings here.

What is known? Seven Seas Prestige will launch first, but a second ship will also debut in 2029.

“On Regent Seven Seas Cruises, though, it’s not just the hardware that matters,” says Shelby Steudle, president, Pavlus Travel. “Guests also experience ultra-luxury onboard service. Guests can expect a high level of vacation pampering. This is just the next ultra-luxury step in the evolution of a fabulous cruise vacation product.”
