The Regent Seven Seas Explorer cruise ship has been trademarked as “The Most Luxurious Ship Ever Built”. Three design teams executed the ships 473 crystal chandeliers and implemented acre’s worth of Italian marble. There are many different challenges when it comes to designing for ocean travel but this team pulled it off remarkably. The firms included Miami’s CallisonRTKLICRAVE, and Swedish firmTillberg.

From extravagant hand-beaded Maya Romanoff wallpapers to gold-leaf mosaic tiles the design team installed in the Explorer’s French restaurant to be more than luxurious. They were given a limitless budget and the motivation to go above and beyond in every aspect.

This 450 million dollar ship is the definition of luxury and extravagance. It possesses a double-height entrance atrium with spiral staircases and a massive, swanky Chelsom chandelier; a 6,000-pound Tibetan prayer wheel sculpture that cost $500,000 to fabricate; and a $10,000-per-night, 4,443 square-foot master suite with a $150,000 bed and a flashy gold bathroom.

This one of a kind ship cannot be duplicated. Regent Seven Seas Explorer embarked on its maiden voyage July 20th from Monte Carlo, Monaco and will sail the Mediterranean until November when it will head to the Caribbean for the winter season.
