Seven Seas Grandeur floated out in Fincantieri shipyard

The construction of Seven Seas Grandeur has reached a major construction milestone with the ship’s float out in Ancona. 

Shipbuilder Fincantieri and Regent Seven Seas Cruises have celebrated the float out of Seven Seas Grandeur. The float out ceremony was held at the Ancona shipyard in Italy. During the float out ceremony a traditional good luck champagne bottle was shattered against her hull.

Orsinja Myshku, Senior Controller of Ancona shipyard’s Economic Administration and Control Office, served as madrina of the ceremony, cutting a ribbon following a prayer by the shipyard chaplain. The dry-dock of Seven Seas Grandeur was then flooded, officially completing the ceremony.

Seven Seas Grandeur is the third luxury cruise ship that Fincantieri is building for Regent Seven Seas Cruises. The delivery is scheduled for November of this year. The shipyard previously built Seven Seas Explorer (2016) and Seven Seas Splendor (2020) for the luxury cruise line.

Like the first two vessels of her class Seven Seas Grandeur is 55,500 gross tons with
accommodation for only 746 passengers, with among the highest staff-to-guest ratio in the industry.
The ship is built using the very latest in environmental protection technologies, while the interiors are
particularly sophisticated, with every attention paid to the guest experience.

Seven Seas Grandeur will set sail in November 2023, cruising 18 incredible voyages in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean, as well as two fascinating transatlantic crossings, all ranging from seven to 16 nights in length. The inaugural voyage collection includes a new maiden sailing – added due to strong demand – which spends seven nights discovering the Adriatic and Western Mediterranean from Venice (Trieste), Italy to Barcelona, Spain.
