Christie Brinkley, she’s a world-famous supermodel, glamorous actress, proud mother and successful entrepreneur and now she will serve as Godmother to 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 chief executive officer 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.”
A centuries-old maritime tradition, a ship’s Godmother christens the vessel and is responsible for bestowing good luck over the ship and to all guests and crew who sail her. Brinkley will christen Seven Seas Splendor in Miami on February 21, 2020.
“The absolute most invigorating and luxurious way to travel the world is by cruising the seas” – Christie Brinkley, Godmother Seven Seas Splendor
Brinkley is excited to serve as Godmother to Seven Seas Splendor: “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. 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 continued.
Seven Seas Splendor is currently under construction in Ancona, Italy. The all-suite, all-balcony ship will offer luxury with elegance, comfort and personalized service to her 750 guests. More than 46,000 square-feet of Italian marble will adorn Seven Seas Splendor – over an acre of marble – and her 375 suites include nearly 52,000 square-feet of balcony space.
The suites range from the 307 square-foot Veranda Suite to the lavish 4,443 square-foot Regent Suite. The Regent Suite features the ultimate comfort of a $200,000 Hästens Vividus custom handmade mattress, an in-suite spa retreat featuring a personal sauna, steam room and treatment area with unlimited spa treatments, unobstructed 270-degree views over Seven Seas Splendor’s bow from the 1,300 square-foot wraparound veranda, and a glass-enclosed solarium sitting area on top of the bridge. Guests in the Regent Suite also enjoy first-class air accommodations, a dedicated personal butler to manage all the details of the guests’ experience, and a personal car with driver and guide in every port.
Seven Seas Splendor will feature a multi-million-dollar art collection, a Culinary Arts Kitchen with 18 stations for hands-on gourmet cooking demonstrations.
The ship’s exquisite restaurants include Compass Rose – dubbed the largest specialty restaurant at sea, Pacific Rim serving Pan-Asian dishes, an elegant steakhouse – Prime 7, Chartreuse for classic French fare with a modern twist and Sette Mari at La Veranda, serving guests authentic Italian specialties and featuring stunning, over-water alcove seating.
During her inaugural 2020 season, Seven Seas Splendor will sail the Caribbean and Mediterranean, helmed by 30-year veteran Captain Serena Melani.
