    Regent Seven Seas Cruises announced that Sarah Fabergé, founding member of The Fabergé Heritage Council and great-granddaughter of Peter Carl Fabergé, will serve as Godmother to Seven Seas Grandeur.

    Fabergé will christen the ship at a gala event in Miami, Florida on 10 December, 2023, which will also feature entertainment from Emmy and Tony award-winning actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth. Seven Seas Grandeur will then embark on a three-night Caribbean christening cruise, before returning to Miami for its maiden Caribbean season.

    “As a founding member of the Fabergé Heritage Council, Sarah symbolises the shared ethos and distinctive qualities that define our two eminent luxury brands and is therefore the ideal Godmother of our newest ship, Seven Seas Grandeur,” said Andrea DeMarco, president of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

    “We are deeply honoured to name Sarah Fabergé as Godmother, and I am delighted to welcome her to the Regent Seven Seas Cruises family.

    Fabergé, who also works as the director of special projects of the Fabergé Heritage Council, expressed her excitement about the christening.

     

    “Today’s Fabergé looks to the ingenuity of my great-grandfather, Peter Carl Fabergé and his constant pursuit of excellence,” Fabergé said.

    “I am honoured to be Godmother to this extraordinary new ship which, like Fabergé, has been inspired by the past and reimagined for the future, and I also look forward to hosting Regent guests onboard Seven Seas Grandeur for my exclusive Spotlight Voyage in 2024.”

    Great-granddaughter of Peter Carl Fabergé – the artist-jeweller and creative and entrepreneur behind the company that bore his name – Fabergé is member of the Fabergé Heritage Council which helps to support the Fabergé Management Team and provides guidance on Peter Carl Fabergé and his legacy.

    Fabergé’s appointment as Godmother to Seven Seas Grandeur comes in celebration of Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ partnership with Fabergé. As part of the collaboration, Regent previously announced the commission of a hand-crafted objet d’art known as Journey in Jewels. This Fabergé egg will hold the distinction of being the first-ever permanent resident of its kind on the open seas, serving as the crowning jewel within the ship’s awe-inspiring multi-million-dollar art collection.

    Additionally, Fabergé will host a Fabergé Spotlight Voyage on board Seven Seas Grandeur, departing 1 July, 2024, enveloping luxury travellers into the world of Fabergé with small group master-class programs, exclusive access to unique and intimate shore-side tours, jewelled egg demonstrations and fascinating lectures and screenings.

    The 10-night sailing will depart from Rome (Civitavecchia) and cruise the Mediterranean, calling in Salerno, Italy; Taormina (Sicily), Italy; Valletta, Malta; Palma de Mallorca; Barcelona, Spain; Provence (Marseille), and Antibes, France before ending at Monte Carlo.
