A luxurious new ship from Regent Seven Seas Cruises is to feature a suite with an exceptional level of opulence, including its own spa.
The two-bed Regent Suite on board the Seven Seas Explorer will be the first to come with a treatment zone, steam room and sauna dedicated to its occupier.
With 3,875 sq ft at their disposal, guests can also enjoy the outdoor Vista Garden, where they can sit protected from the sea breeze by glass enjoying a 270 degree view looking over the bow.
The Seven Seas Explorer, which will debut in summer 2016 with a two-week trip to Venice from Monte Carlo, only offers suites of rooms and every one has a balcony.
Just 750 people will be on board to experience the new level of luxury, meaning the ship will boast the most space per guest in the cruise industry.
Read on for a round up of some other features - but don't forget to arrange cruise travel insurance when booking a holiday.
Guests are transported back to old Hollywood in the Constellation Theatre, the Seven Seas Explorer's main entertainment area. The 694 guests it seats can choose to go cabaret-style or occupy a cocktail table decorated with a hand-made lamp from the Italian island of Murano.
The floor-to-ceiling windows of the Observation Lounge offer guests entering its Roaring Twenties luxury a chance to take in the sea in all its glory. The black, white, silver and gold surroundings will have them feeling like something out of The Great Gatsby.
Those who want to sink into a leather chair need look no further than the Explorer Lounge, with its country club vibe. Dark blue and mahogany lead up to a black marble bar just waiting to furnish them with the perfect tipple. Live music takes place on a small stage at the opposite end of the room.
There are three restaurant experiences to choose from, each with a distinct character.
Steak restaurant Prime 7 will put guests in mind of a London club, with silver tones highlighting the purple decor, while the central dining area Compass Rose is a more modern space.
La Veranda will have visitors feeling like they're on the Italian Riviera, offering a breakfast and lunch buffet before turning into a fine dining experience for dinner under the Sette Mari at La Veranda tag.
Chief operating officer and president Jason Montague said Regent Seven Seas Cruises aimed to create the most opulent ship ever, setting a new standard for cruise guests.
