(2 p.m. EST) -- Regent Seven Seas Cruises has announced that supermodel, actress, mother and entrepreneur Christie Brinkley will serve as Godmother for its newest luxury cruise ship, Seven Seas Splendor.

“Christie Brinkley is a universally beloved icon who is synonymous worldwide for her beauty, style and commitment to health and happiness,” said Jason Montague, president and CEO of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “It’s fitting that the godmother of Seven Seas Splendor reflects timeless elegance, vitality and sophistication, as Regent has perfected all the details of luxury onboard Seven Seas Splendor. We are deeply honored that Christie will christen our newest ship and delighted to welcome her to the Regent Seven Seas Cruises family.”

The 750-guest, all-suite Seven Seas Splendor is currently under construction at the Fincantieri shipyards in Italy. Debuting in February 2020, the ship will offer 46,000 square feet of Italian marble onboard, along with 375 lavish suites that offer a collective 52,000 square feet of balcony space – a number that’s among the largest at sea. Suites will range from 307 to 4,443 square feet apiece.

The ship will be a direct sister to Regent’s existing and lavish Seven Seas Explorer. During Seven Seas Splendor’s 2020 inaugural season, the ship will offer itineraries in the Caribbean and Mediterranean, helmed by 30-year veteran Captain Serena Melani.

“We learn best about the beautiful world around us by exploring new cities, immersing ourselves in different cultures and interacting with the gracious people who live there,” Brinkley said in a statement. “We cherish and remember these moments more when we experience them with the people we love. The absolute most invigorating and luxurious way to travel the world is by cruising the seas.”

“As a woman who strives to inspire other females to achieve their career and personal aspirations, I’m especially proud to be Godmother of the first new cruise ship in maritime history to be captained by a female, the trailblazing Captain Serena Melani,” Brinkley said.
