(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.
