As we prepare to enjoy the company of family and friends in the coming days, I would like to take a moment to reflect on this truly remarkable year. 2016, in particular, has been full of amazing accomplishments for Regent Seven Seas Cruises®.
We welcomed Seven Seas Explorer®, the world’s most luxurious ship, to our fleet in July. There could not have been a better setting than Monte Carlo. Seven Seas Navigator®and Seven Seas Voyager® both underwent multi-million dollar refurbishments this year. I had the privilege of experiencing Seven Seas Voyager’s renovation first-hand during the 2016 Reunion Cruise and am proud to note she has surpassed a new level of excellence. We welcomed our first female captain with the promotion of Serena Melani to Captain of Seven Seas Mariner and launched another extraordinary World Cruise itinerary. We also had the honor of welcoming tens of thousands of guests aboard our fleet to nearly 375 destinations around the globe.
I am grateful for the opportunities to connect with our loyal guests, esteemed Travel Partners and to lead an immensely talented and professional team of employees both aboard and ashore. Their unyielding commitment to the Regent experience never ceases to amaze me. During this season of reflection, I would like extend my personal thanks to our team – they are the best in the industry.
On behalf of Regent Seven Seas Cruises®, thank you for a truly outstanding year. I wish you all a joyful Thanksgiving and look forward to welcoming you aboard soon.
