(7:35 a.m. GMT) -- Regent Seven Seas’ newest cruise ship, Seven Seas Splendor, is set to star in a new series of “The World’s Most Luxurious Cruise Ship” on Channel 5, the line has confirmed during a shakedown sailing onboard the new ship.
Produced by ITN Productions for Channel 5, some footage has already been shot of the ship while it was still in the shipyard, which is expected to be seen in the first episode. TV crew will then join the 750-passenger ship in April on a Miami to New York voyage to continue filming.
The line will give exclusive access to camera crew to go behind the scenes and find out what it takes to operate this ultra-luxury cruise ship.
The all-inclusive, all-suite ship’s talking point is the nearly 4,500-square foot (including balcony) Regent Suite -- which comes with a $250,000 grand Steinway piano, a personal butler and its own in-suite spa and unlimited spa treatments and sells for $10,000 per person per day.
The line has not yet confirmed the transmission date of the second series, though it is likely to be summer or early autumn.
The line’s Seven Seas Explorer featured in the first series of the popular television show, which aired in August 2019 and again in December 2019 for a Christmas special.
Seven Seas Splendor is currently sailing to Barcelona on a shakedown cruise with travel trade, media and VIPs onboard. The ship will then sail to Miami where it will be christened on February 21 by godmother Christie Brinkley.

Royal Caribbean Reports $1.3-Billion Loss, No Word on Cruise Return to Service

(12:45 p.m. EDT) -- In a less optimistic call than in previous quarters, Royal Caribbean Group reported a $1.3-billion loss for the third quarter of 2020 on Thursday, and remained mum on chances that the current "No Sail" order would be revoked this week.

Although limited sailings had returned to service this fall aboard European subsidiaries TUI Cruises and Hapag-Lloyd Cruises, the company continues to burn through $250 to $290 million per month in hot and cold layup expenses as its global fleet awaits a return to service following the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

Roughly half of all cruisers on cancelled sailings are electing to take cash refunds, while the remaining fifty percent

When Are Cruise Lines Around the World Expected To Resume Service?

(Updated 12:25 p.m. EDT) -- With ocean and river cruise lines temporarily suspending service around the world as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, keeping track of the seemingly minute-by-minute changes to the cruise industry can be challenging.

Most cruise lines voluntarily paused sailings for the meantime after being faced with port closures; a lack of suitable infrastructure, including flights; and increased travel restrictions that change on a country-by-country basis. CLIA,the Cruise Lines International Association that represents most cruise lines, issued a further volunatary suspension in operations through October 31.
