Regent Seven Seas Cruises has announced the name of its new ship, scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2020.

The second Explorer-class ship, named Splendor, will have a gross tonnage of 55,254 and capacity of 750 guests.

Jason Montague, the line's president and CEO, said:“The naming of a ship is an important milestone in maritime tradition and it is my pleasure to announce that the name of Regent Seven Seas Cruises' new ship to launch in 2020 is Seven Seas Splendor.

“The extraordinary demand for Seven Seas Explorer has reinforced our decision to expand our fleet and Seven Seas Splendor will offer guests a fifth option that will provide unforgettable experiences in the world’s most compelling destinations, with the incredibly high standards of luxury and service that lure guests back again and again.”

As part of the naming process, the cruise line sought suggestions from travel agents, loyal guests and employees for the ship’s name in a sweepstakes held in September. Seven Seas Splendor was chosen among nearly 2,600 unique names from more than 14,000 submissions.
