Take a peek inside the world’s most extravagant accommodations out on the open waters.
Cruises are historically known for tacky entertainment, cramped cabins, and sub-par kitchens, but a new wave of fleets are bringing the opulence and personalisation of five-star luxury resorts to the open waters, with new cruise ships equipped with luxurious, over-the-top suites to house precious cargo ‚Äî think A-list celebrities, Fortune 500 execs, and those with, well, approximately HK$400K to spare for the week.
If you‚Äôre ready to splash out for the granddaddy of luxurious cruise ship suites, you can now book your spot onboard the new season of cruise itineraries from the Regent Seven Seas Explorer, a US$450 million cruise ship that debuted late last year. Upcoming voyages in April and May will see you sailing off to Barcelona, Rome, Venice and Lisbon, with the 412-sq.-metre Regent Suite available for those who want to experience what it‚Äôs like to stay in the world‚Äôs most luxurious suite at sea.
The extravagant residence at sea encompasses two bedrooms, one master and one guestroom, including a separate living area featuring a custom-made Steinway grand piano ‚Äî just in case you want to channel Ryan Gosling in La La Land while sailing the seas.
Back in the master bedroom, you can enjoy full relaxation and luxury at sea with the private in-suite spa featuring a full sauna, ceramic heated loungers and a multi-jet shower. Guests of the suite can enjoy unlimited complimentary spa treatments including massages, facials and manicures.
