The Regent Seven Seas Splendor is set to offer a 16-night cruise to Greenland and Iceland in 2023. Sailing from Southampton to Reykjavik, the unique itinerary features visits to a total of ten destinations in five different countries.
After departing England on Aug. 7, the open-jaw journey sails to Scotland and the Faroe Islands before reaching Greenland and Iceland – where it is set to end on Aug. 23.
In addition to popular destinations, such as Kirkwall and Akureyri, ports of call include less visited ports in the region, including Paamiut.
Regent Seven Seas is one of the only four major cruise lines set to visit the 1,600-inhabitant Greenlandic city in 2023.
The itinerary also features scenic cruising at the Prince Christian Sound, a narrow waterway in Southern Greeland known for its vivid landscape.
Other destinations set to be visited during the cruise include Torshavn, Qaqortoq, Grundarfjordur and more.
Set to spend most of the summer in Northern Europe, the Seven Seas Splendor offers different itineraries in the region, with cruises exploring not only Iceland and Greenland but also the British Islands, the Baltic and more.
A sister to the Seven Seas Explorer, the Splendor is currently the newest vessel of the Regent Seven Cruises Cruises fleet.
At 56,000 tons and carrying just 750 guests, the 2020-built vessel boasts the highest space ratio in the cruise industry, according to Regent.
The Splendor also offers the unique 4,443-square-foot Regent Suite. Located on the top deck of the ship, the accommodation is said to be the largest suite ever constructed on a cruise ship.
Other features of the luxury cruise ship include a selection of specialty, casual and main dining options, including Sette Mari at La Veranda, an Italian option available for dinners, and the Prime 7, Regent’s signature steakhouse.
