Fincantieri Cuts First Steel for Seven Seas Splendor

Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri has launched construction works on Seven Seas Splendor, the second cruise ship to be built for Regent Seven Seas Cruises (RSSC), a brand of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings.

The steel cutting ceremony took place at the shipyard in Ancona on March 15.

Seven Seas Splendor was ordered for EUR 422 million (USD 520.8 million) in March 2016.

The newbuilding is scheduled for delivery in early 2020, according to Fincantieri.

With its 55,500 gross tons, Seven Seas Splendor will be 224 meters long and will be able to accommodate 754 passengers on board.

The new ship, which will follow Seven Seas Explorer delivered by the shipyard in Sestri Ponente, Genoa, in June 2016, will be built using the latest in environmental protection technologies, the shipbuilder said.
