New Documentary Series to Showcase Behind the Scenes of Seven Seas Splendor

Regent Seven Seas Cruises®, the world’s leading luxury cruise line, will once again unveil behind-the-scenes secrets, this time on board Seven Seas Splendor, the ship that perfects luxury, in a new documentary series to air on Foxtel’s Fox Docos Channel, featuring Secrets of the World’s Most Expensive Cruise Ship.

The new documentary series will commence on 16 March 22 at 6.30pm, following the ship on her inaugural Northern Europe season from Iceland to Norway and through the breath taking Norwegian Fjords, to Finland, Estonia, and Copenhagen, before travelling through the Mediterranean from Spain, Portugal, Gibraltar and the Canary Islands.

“We’re thrilled to see Seven Seas Splendor returning to Australian TV screens once more on Foxtel. The new series gives viewers a behind the scenes look at how the crew deliver an unrivalled experience on board the world’s most expensive cruise ship. Our crew go above and beyond for our guests so being able to showcase them in this series has been a real delight.” said Lisa Pile, Vice President Sales & General Manager Asia Pacific, Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

Viewers will follow the mouth-wateringly luxurious cuisine served to guests on a Regent voyage, from a no expense spared Spanish night complete with 48 different dishes and a show stopping paella, to an intense Lobster Thermidor v Beef Wellington competition in the galley. The series will also see Executive Sous Chef Kamlesh Koonjee leading his team to prepare a special selection of 240 canapes for the glamorous 30th anniversary party and transform the pool deck for an al fresco BBQ in a battle against the elements in Stockholm. Regent guests will also be seen pairing the delicious food with a selection of included wines from 11 different countries.

Seven Seas Splendor is host to Broadway choreographer Patti Willcox as she heads on board to check the cast production of Diamond Run is up to scratch. The series will also follow a new entertainment team as they undergo extensive onboard training ahead of their debut show Crossroads. The entertainment team will also have to contend with an unexpected sea day and pull-off a vow renewal ceremony officiated by Cruise Director Franck Galzy.

With unlimited shore excursions included with every cruise, viewers will see Destination Manager Roland Moonsamy have his work cut out with a request for a bespoke, off-menu trip to mark a special occasion. With just a few days to put together the trip of a lifetime, it’s up to Roland to ensure the guests experience a trip of a lifetime.

Viewers will take a behind the scenes look at the Navigational Bridge as Captain Felice Patruno, with experience of over 40 years at sea hands over control to new Captain Luciano Montesanto who takes control of the vessel in Bergen, Norway and also makes his Captain’s Welcome debut. Social Hostess Annabel Gascoyne also has the important task of a guided tour to local dignitaries as the Splendor makes its inaugural port of call into Gibraltar.

Seven Seas Splendor joined the Regent fleet in February 2020 as the ship that defines luxury perfected. On board, guests experience the highest benchmarks of personalised service and comforts. Boasting five unique restaurants and three elegant bars and lounges, as well as being home to the most exclusive residence at sea, The Regent Suite, Seven Seas Splendor offers the highest benchmark of luxury, and is the perfect setting for this year’s behind-the-scenes documentary.
