Seven Seas Explorer is the name of the new cruise ship ordered by Regent Seven Seas. The new ship, which will be ready for its maiden voyage in the summer 2016, will accommodate up to 738 passengers, USA Today reports.

 The new ship will be the company’s largest commercial liner. The Seven Seas Explorer will have 369 suites. The accommodations for guests will range from 300 to 1,500 square feet.

Frank Del Rio, the head of Regent's parent company, said in a statement accompanying the announcement that the Seven Seas Explorer will be the most luxurious cruise ship ever built.

Regent says Seven Seas Explorer will boast one of the highest ratios of space to passengers ever for a cruise ship, and one of the highest staff-to-passenger ratios. The ship's 369 suites will range from 300 to 1,500 square feet, and the vessel will have six open-seating gourmet restaurants, a spacious, Canyon Ranch SpaClub and a two-story theater.
