A new cruise ship set to hit the high seas in 2016 will feature a luxury suite that's as large as house and costs as much as five-week vacation in New York City.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises recently unveiled plans for the Seven Seas Explorer, a new ship it’s calling the “most luxurious ever.”
But its Regent Suite--an opulent, two-bedroom suite located at the ship's bow --is making all the waves.
For $10,000 a night, big spenders can enjoy the suite's master bedroom and guest room, along with a 270-degree sea view in the private glass-enclosed sitting room.
A living room, with a black marble bar and a Steinway piano, is the perfect place for guests to take advantage of those all-inclusive gourmet meals and crafted cocktails.
After a night of partying, cruisers can indulge in a full sauna, ceramic heated relaxation loungers and unlimited complimentary in-suite spa services. The luxury service continues on land, where suite guests will have a private car and driver at every port and first class air travel.
At 3,875-square-feet, the suite is larger than the average American home, which is roughly 2,600 square feet, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. But more breathtaking is the price tag: A 14-day cruise will cost approximately $140,000, before tips. That works out to be about a five-week stay at Manhattan One-Bedroom Suite in the Four Seasons Hotel near Park Avenue in New York City --one of the city’s most luxurious suites.
A spokeswoman for Regent Seven Seas Cruises confirmed to FoxNews.com that the Regent Suite has already been booked for the ship's maiden voyage, scheduled for July 20, 2016. The line has been taking reservations from select members since Jan. 19, and will open bookings from the public on Feb. 4.
Jason Montague, president and chief operating officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises, said in a release that when the ship launches, the “opulence and elegance of the Regent Suite will be unmatched in the luxury vacation segment.”
The 750-passenger Seven Seas Explorer is currently being built in Genoa, Italy at the Fincantieri shipyard and when finished will travel from Monte Carlo, Monaco to Venice, Italy --and will remain in Europe for the 11 voyages of its inaugural season.
