The ship has a midship main pool with two whirlpools and an infinity pool off the huge spa. The main pool area includes double sun loungers and cabanas.
Frank Del Rio, the CEO of Regent’s parent company Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, said, “I wanted this ship to be timeless. That this vessel will be as relevant to the luxury market 20 years from now as it is today. It’s not a fad; it’s not the color of the day; it’s not the cool thing that’s going around now. This is something that will stand the test of time.”
Departing on July 20, the Explorer will make a 14-night maiden voyage to Venice and stop at St Tropez, Ibiza, Palma, Barcelona, Taormina, Koper, Valetta, Split in Croatia, and Kotor in Montenegro along the way.
