Regent Seven Seas Cruises®, the world’s leading luxury cruise line, will unveil behind-the-scenes secrets on board Seven Seas Splendor, the ship that perfects luxury, in the World’s Most Expensive Christmas Cruise programme to be shown on Christmas Eve. 

The new one-hour documentary will air in the UK on Channel 5 at 8pm on December 24, 2021 and follows Seven Seas Splendor’s inaugural festive season at sea. Viewers can watch as 542 crew work around the clock to ensure that the ship’s guests have a magical time onboard. 

Led by Cruise Director John Barron the crew transform the ship with 70 boxes of decorations at a value of almost £70,000. The ship’s festive look includes three Christmas trees in the atrium, 15 trees throughout the rest of the ship and a 260-foot garland wrapping around the central staircase. 

During the holidays, Seven Seas Splendor will have approximately 200lbs of geese, 600lbs of turkeys, 200lbs of ham, 20 different types of cheese and over 38,000 bottles of wine onboard for guests to enjoy – all included in the fare price. In addition, there are 8 varieties of Christmas cookies, 1000 portions of pumpkin pie and 200 logs of Bûche de Noël on board. 

Viewers will also see John Barron assessing various guest experiences both on and off the ship, including a visit to the beautiful private island of Grand Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas, where John will be trying his hand at paddle-boarding. 

“We are delighted to return to TV screens during primetime Christmas Eve on nationwide television. Our crew have pulled out all the stops, and decked the halls with the most beautiful decorations, to make this a truly magical Christmas voyage for our guests. This is a particularly special festive season for us with Seven Seas Splendor celebrating her first Christmas at sea with guests,” said Graham Sadler, Managing Director, Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
