Regent Seven Seas Cruises and the Monaco Government Tourism & Convention Authority marked the 1st Anniversary of the Monaco christening of Seven Seas Explorer with a joint celebration at Sydney’s Bistro Guillaume last Thursday night.
Hadrien Bourely, Honorary Consul de Monaco (NSW, NT & QLD) said, “In recent years the Port Authority of Monaco has taken the decision to realign itself with the luxury cruise industry, as such Regent Seven Seas is a most valued partner. In 2016, Monaco welcomed 191 ship visits, carrying almost 200,000 cruise passengers with 67 percent of the visits falling in the luxury segment. With HSH Princess Charlene as the Godmother of the most luxurious ship ever built we are thrilled to be welcoming Seven Seas Explorer back to her place of christening. We hope that more Australians will travel to Monaco and experience the perfect combination of our Principality with the ultimate in luxury cruising”.
“The collaboration between Regent Seven Seas Cruises and Monaco, a Principality renowned for its glamour, prestige and stylish lifestyle, is truly fitting for a brand that sets new benchmarks in cruising luxury,“ said Steve Odell, Senior Vice President & Managing Director Asia Pacific for Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings.
“From opulent suites to gourmet restaurants and elegant lounges, the Seven Seas Explorer unsurprisingly lives up to her reputation as the most luxurious ship ever built. Her return to Monte Carlo’s famed Port Hercule, marks the culmination of a successful first year of spectacular voyages on both sides of the Atlantic.”
