Seven Seas Explorer
Regent Seven Seas Cruises
Routes: Mediterranean, Caribbean, Panama Canal (July 2016)
Any ship that sets its maiden voyage from Monte Carlo is probably gonna be pretty luxe, and this long-haul 750-passenger liner fits that bill. It’s decked out with all-suites and will sail the Med next summer before heading across the Atlantic on a 16-night voyage from Rome to Miami. Once in Florida, it’ll tour the Caribbean before making a New Year’s Panama Canal crossing to LA.
Onboard, Explorer will boast a trifecta of trendy restaurants -- French, Pan-Asian, and Prime Steak -- as well as a top-deck “observation lounge.” And for the uber elite, a 3,000sqft suite complete with a custom-made Steinway piano, in-cabin spa (w/ unlimited spa treatments), and a 270-degree view from a wrap-around balcony. All for a mere $5,000 per person, per night.
