  1. Regent Seven Seas Cruises has announced an order with Italy’s Fincantieri S.p.A. to build another luxury cruise ship. With delivery scheduled in late 2023, the new vessel will be a sister ship to the line's newest ships, the Seven Seas Explorer and the Seven Seas Splendor. Accommodating up to 750 guests, the new ship will be Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ sixth-all-suite vessel. Details about the new ship's itineraries, suites, restaurants, amenities and onboard experiences will be announced leading up to its 2023 debut. Voyages for the ship’s inaugural season will open for bookings in 2021. The contract price for the vessel is approximately €475 million ($544 million). Regent says that it has obtained export credit financing to fund 80 percent of the contract price of the ship, subject to certain Italian government approvals. Fincantieri is currently building Seven Seas Splendor at its Ancona, Italy shipyard, with that ship slated to debut in 2020. Over the past year Regent has also completed a $125 million fleet renovation project designed to bring its ships in line with Regent's Explorer-class vessels. As part of this project, the Seven Seas Mariner received updates to its suites, restaurants and public spaces, including new dining venue Chartreuse, brought over from the Explorer. The luxury cruise line has also opened bookings for its 2020 - 2021 season, with 167 itineraries and new ports, as well as introduced new cruises to Cuba, new Go Local Tours and new Regent Choice small group excursions.

  3. A 16-year-old cruise passenger died after falling from Deck 8 of Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas ship on Friday, the Sun Sentinel reported. Laurent Mercer, who was on vacation with his family, was trying to climb from one balcony to another, according to the Broward Medical Examiner’s Office’s statement to the Sun Sentinel, when he fell onto what appears to be a striped asphalt surface alongside the ship and died. The 5,400-passenger ship was docked in Labadee, Haiti, the ship’s first stop on a seven-day Western Caribbean sailing from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale. The Sun Sentinel reported Mercer was originally from Wallis and Futuna, a French island nation in the Pacific. “We are saddened by the loss of one our guests in a tragic accident,’’ Owen Torres, manager of communications for Royal Caribbean, said in a statement emailed to the Herald. People aboard the ship discussed the incident on Cruise Critic, an online forum for cruisers. One passenger shared photos of an area on the pier close to the side of the ship blocked off with barriers. In a statement to the Sun Sentinel, the Broward Medical Examiner’s Office said the ship’s medical team attempted CPR, but the passenger had suffered head trauma and was declared dead at 11:42 a.m. Just last month, a crew member on Harmony of the Seas died after going overboard as the ship sailed from Fort Lauderdale to St. Maarten on Christmas Day.

  9. MSC Cruises wants to build an even bigger terminal in PortMiami. Last year, county commissioners approved MSC’s plans to build on a 9-acre terminal site with space for one 7,000-passenger ship at a time. At a meeting in Geneva Thursday, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez and MSC Cruises signed a letter of intent to build a much larger structure than originally planned. Now, MSC says it wants 16.5 acres and enough space to fit two 7,000-passenger ships at a time — possibly with two terminals — plus office space. “This agreement represents a blueprint for the further expansion of the cruise operation at the world’s leading cruise port,” said MSC’s executive chairman, Gianluigi Aponte, in a statement Thursday. MSC Cruises currently operates a fleet of 15 cruise vessels. Three of them call Terminal F at PortMiami home: MSC Seaside, MSC Divina and MSC Armonia. With a new cruise terminal — or two — the letter of intent said MSC would bring an estimated 1.5 million passengers through PortMiami each year. The Geneva-based line now has its U.S. offices in Broward. Once the financial details of the terminal plan are ironed out, MSC and the county will ask the Miami-Dade Board of Commissioners for its approval. MSC would aim to finish construction by November 2022, according to a spokesperson for the port. MSC is one of four cruise lines to announce ambitious expansions at PortMiami. Royal Caribbean opened its new Terminal A in November 2018, now home to some of its 5,400-passenger Oasis-class ships. Norwegian Cruise Line plans to open its new terminal at Terminals B and C in November, which will hold two 5,000-passenger ships at once. And, the county commission approved Virgin Voyages’ plans to build a terminal set to open in 2021.
