We are delighted that our Members have the opportunity to sail on the newest luxury cruise ship in the world’s most luxurious fleet, magnificent Regent Seven Seas Grandeur, in her historic inaugural season. From her maiden voyage from Trieste to Barcelona, to her first season in the sun-kissed Caribbean, fascinating Mediterranean voyages, and her first foray to Canada and New England in the Fall, arriving ceremoniously to all the razzmatazz of New York city. And as a CountryClubuk Member you have exclusive rates.
Seven Seas Grandeur exemplifies Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ burning ambition to create what they see as a ‘Heritage of Perfection’ with unrivalled space and décor, unparalleled service, exceptional cuisine, and transformative experiences for guests as soon as they step on board. With a gross tonnage of 55,500 and a maximum of only 746 guests, Grandeur will offer among the highest space and staff to guest ratios in the industry.
By joining Grandeur on these inaugural sailings you will be the first to experience your new luxurious suite with your private veranda, the first to enjoy the fine dining in the new speciality restaurants, the new shows in the theatre and the casino, the viewing decks, the luxurious bars and coffee houses, the spa and all the ravishing new décor—including the new art gallery. Add to all these the exclusive, top-notch free shore excursions and the fact that the gratuities, return flights and transfers are all taken care of: All that is left for you to do is relax and enjoy.
Grandeur is sister ship to the renowned Seven Seas Explorer, named ‘the world’s most luxurious cruise ship’. Sailing on the new ship from the moment she launches will be an outstanding, opulent experience. She will also be home to a multi-million-dollar art collection, the pièce de résistance of which will be a custom designed masterpiece, ‘Journey in Jewels’, the first Fabergé Egg to permanently reside at sea. The design was inspired by the iconic Fabergé Winter Egg of 1913, which sold in 1992 for $9.6 million at Christie’s New York.
Grandeur herself was designed by the award-winning Studio DADO. Her refined style, matchless elegance and breathtaking beauty will exceed any that have gone before. On board, guests will find restaurants Prime 7, Chartreuse, and a captivatingly reimagined design for signature restaurant Compass Rose. From the palatial, £10,000-a-night Regent Suite to the contemporary, yet timeless, Distinctive Suites, to the beautifully appointed Spacious Suites, Seven Seas Grandeur features 15 stunning accommodation categories.
And this being Regent, all cruises are fully, generously, all-inclusive, with free return flights, free excursions, free wines and gourmet food, gratuities, wifi, and so much more. Book a Concierge Suite or higher and a free pre-cruise hotel night is included, book a Penthouse Suite and higher and you will also receive European Business class flights, a personal butler and more.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises wins the most coveted awards, too: Best for Accommodation: Best for Luxury: Best for Excursions: Best Luxury Cruise Line: Favourite Cruise Line and more. . .
And for all this fully-inclusive luxury, you have exclusive access to special rates available only to you as a CountryClubuk Member.
The owners are intent on Grandeur being part of a ‘heritage of perfection’ and ‘a work of art from bow to stern’. With artwork and sculptures everywhere, lined with Carrera marble, glittering with chandeliers, and displaying masterpieces plentiful enough to stock an art gallery, Grandeur is a palace.
Then there is her space ratio, which on a ship is essential to make you feel relaxed, surrounded by openness. Space to breathe, and wind down, is a vital element on a truly relaxing cruise and Splendor is designed to achieve this, making certain changes to the original Explorer class design to perfect what was already a supreme guest experience.
For instance, when you open the door of your chosen suite it will welcome you as one of its inaugural guests—as if you are arriving in your own new, beautifully furnished apartment. In fact, all Grandeur’s cabins are suites, and every suite includes your own private furnished balcony.
Even the entry-level suites are from 307 sq ft, and balconies from 88 sq ft—large when compared with other luxury ships. All suites include indulgent touches—marble and granite bathrooms with rainfall showers, walk-in wardrobe, European Sleep Slumber beds with mattresses costing $200,000, high-end linens and French toiletries.
You might not require Grandeur’s showcase Regent Suite with an astonishing 4,443 sq ft of space. But all Grandeur’s suites are much more spacious than many of her competitors—and this living space makes the entire cruise feel more tranquil: The space-to-guest ratio is over 70! As with sister ships Explorer and Splendor, Grandeur is no place for queuing.
And as for the superlative service, the guest-to-crew ratio is exceptional at only 750 guests and 542 crew.
WORLD CLASS CUISINE IN STYLISH RESTAURANTS
Whether your wish is for a seven-course banquet or a light lunch, the cuisine on Grandeur is superb. You will be among the first to book tables in the new restaurants—where the owners say ‘the artistry of our Chefs will amaze you’. In every element of the dining experience, they intend to excel.
Guests can choose Parisian dining in the new Chartreuse restaurant, steaks in the surroundings of a private London club in Prime 7, the contemporary look of fine dining in the newly imagined Compass Rose with its waterfall and inspired canopy of trees; a casual, intimate dining experience with Italian flair in Sette Mari at La Veranda, which has open-air dining—the ultimate sea-view table!—as well as the Pool Grill for day-long delicacies. Speciality coffees are served in the new-look Coffee Connection. Cognac and cigars are offered in the leather-seated, wood-panelled Connoisseur Club.
Or you can be served in your private suite. The choices are wide, and nothing is too much trouble for the excellent butlers and waiters aboard ship.

ENTERTAINMENT AND WELLBEING: ALL WELCOME
The numerous stylish lounges include floor-to-ceiling windows for incredible ocean views—and some of the best freshly shaken cocktails at sea. And the two-tier Constellation Theatre is the entertainment hub for everything from expert lectures to Broadway quality live music and entertainment.
The ship’s Serene Spa & Wellness is gorgeous and, as the name suggests, a truly calming space onboard.
If you think it all sounds just a little expensive, you might think again. Because Regent’s fares include flights, transfers, multiple shore excursions, excellent wines, spirits and other drinks, speciality restaurants, free Wifi and gratuities, the cost per person per day can actually work out less than taking a smaller suite on a premium cruise line ship twice the size, or indeed, simply taking the same number of nights in an hotel.
This is true even on such a prized cruise on a luxurious new ship—and this is even more obvious when you factor-in your exclusive savings as a Member of CountryClubuk, which are always significant.
