Cruise line unveils $282k bed in suite


But you’ll have to fork out $16k a night for it

 

A car that cost as much as a house? Meh ... on this cruise ship you’ll get a bed the price of a house (well maybe not in Australia, but certainly in some places). 

 

Regent Seven Seas has revealed what it claims is the largest suite ever built on a luxury cruise ship. 

 

Dubbed the Regent Suite, the abode measures some 4,443 square feet, and will sit on the 14th deck of the Seven Seas Splendor when it sets sail in February 2020. 

 

 

But as luxurious as the suite no doubt is, it is its bed that trumps the rest of its features. 

 

Worth US$200,000 (AU$282,000) the hand-crafted, custom Vividus bed hails from the renowned Hastens brand. We can only guess how comfortable it would be. 

 

Elsewhere, the suite boasts an in-suite spa retreat, 270-degree views over the ship’s bow and a solarium sitting area as well as a personal car with driver and guide in every port.

 

 

“The Regent Suite is the ultimate example of how Seven Seas Splendor will astonish luxury travelers with an unrivaled experience, and it reflects the superior level of detail you’ll uncover throughout this stunning ship,” Regent Seven Seas Cruises CEO and president Jason Montague said. 

 

“In the Regent Suite, whether you’re entertaining friends in your elegant living room, enjoying caviar or lobster in your dining room, relaxing on your hand-crafted Hästens Vividus bed, delighting in unlimited spa services in your personal in-suite treatment area, or exploring a seaside village with your personal car and guide coordinated by your dedicated head butler, the holistic experience represents luxury perfected.”

 

The all-inclusive price for the Regent Suite is US$11,000 per night based on double occupancy. And it’s already sold out for nearly all of Seven Seas Splendor’s first season sailings.
