Default Regent Seven Seas Cruises

FYI. Starting tomorrow, 7 March, Radisson Seven Seas Cruises is changing their name to Regent Seven Seas Cruises. Looks like there will be a new logo, too (same logo as Regent Hotels). Mike, I will try to find a small representation of the logo to add to the chat room.

Marc,

It is a sad day that we are losing the name of Radisson Cruise lines. At least we are staying with the same initials.

Jan, think of the bright future of RSSC.

Here is the press release announcing the name change:

-----------------------------------

More Than Changing A Name, Regent Seven Seas Cruises Builds on Acclaim, Evolving With Upgraded Amenities And 'Personalized Luxury' to Align With Regent Hotels Globally
Tuesday March 7, 10:00 am ET
"Personalized Luxury" Reflected in Seamless Ship-To-Shore Operations With Regent Hotels And Re-Named Cruise Line


NEW YORK, March 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Signaling its enduring commitment to the luxury business and its Regent brand, Carlson Companies, one of the world's leading hospitality, travel and marketing companies, today announced an evolutionary step: the merger of Regent Hotels and Radisson Seven Seas Cruises under its global Regent banner.

The new global Regent brand will encompass Regent Hotels and Radisson Seven Seas Cruises, which will change its name to Regent Seven Seas Cruises with immediate effect, reflecting its alignment with Regent Hotels, born in Asia and legendary for service.

The re-branding of the cruise line - which has earned a reputation for distinguished luxury cruising since its inception in 1992 - also signals the continued upgrading of amenities throughout the fleet. Regent Hotels, with its portfolio of luxury properties worldwide (expanding from the current eight to 16 in the next five years), was acquired by Carlson Companies in 1997.

In shedding its old name for its new brand identity, Radisson Seven Seas Cruises is not just becoming Regent Seven Seas Cruises, "Our acclaimed cruise line is evolving to a new higher level," said Jay Witzel, president and CEO of Carlson Hotels Worldwide and Carlson Cruises Worldwide.

Sketching out developments over the next 18 months, including the upgrading of suite design, décor, amenities and technology plus the roll out of innovative new product offerings and services, Witzel noted that Regent Seven Seas would align with Regent Hotels under the theme of "The Regent Experience."

But for the new Regent Seven Seas Cruises, he stressed, "some things will not change." Building on the finest accommodations at sea, with the world's only all-balcony suite vessels, intimately small and mid-sized ships, award- winning cuisine, celebrated itineraries to over 300 ports worldwide and an elegant ambience with gracious service guests rave about, "the line is evolving naturally to its next logical step," Witzel noted.

Since its inception in 1992, Radisson Seven Seas has won acclaim in the luxury category as one of the "World's Best Cruise Lines." Having raised the bar on luxury through its ownership of the all-balcony suite concept, and partnerships with famed Le Cordon Bleu® and Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ocean Futures Society, the re-branding from Radisson to Regent Seven Seas Cruises "keeps pace with valuable insights gained from guests, prospective affluent travelers and our extensive proprietary research," said Mark Conroy, president of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

Regent Seven Seas Cruises® is part of Carlson Companies, a global leader in the hotel, restaurant, business and leisure travel, and marketing industries.
