Cruise fans have been given a sneak peek inside the world’s largest cruise ship suite – and it could just be the most lavish one we’ve ever seen.
We’re talking a master bedroom and ensuite, guest rooms, a dining room, living room, and even your own in-suite spa.
The full suite is 4,443 sq ft, which is bigger than the average three-bedroom house, and 20 times larger than average cruise staterooms.
The bed alone costs nearly as much as buying a home with a price tag of $200,000 (approximately £154,000).
Located on Regent Seven Seas’ new cruise ship Seven Seas Splendor the opulent cabin, named the Regent Suite, will set guests back $11,000 a night for two people on an all-inclusive basis.
According to Regent, it’s already sold out for nearly all of the ship’s inaugural 2020 sailings.

Unsurprisingly, everything about a stay in the Regent Suite is synonymous with luxury, and not just because guests get their own butler and a private car to drive them around the ports and destinations.
Even before boarding the glamour starts with a Pre-Voyage Concierge who ensure everything from your preferred linens and pillows are ready, as well as your choice of designer bath and skincare products lined up in the ensuite.
Then there’s the suite itself.
The highlight is the in-suite spa which comes with a personal sauna, steam room and treatment area with unlimited spa treatments.
It’s all marble interiors, and there’s even a glass-enclosed solarium with seating on top of the bridge so you can take in unobstructed views of the ocean and destinations as the ship arrives in each port.
Or you could enjoy the views thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows, the 1,300 sq ft wraparound veranda, or the custom-made minipool spa on the front balcony.
Inside, you’ll find the master bedroom with a huge sofa and large flat screen TV – but the real wow factor is the £154,000 custom-made Vividus bed from Hästens.
So what does a £154k bed include? Well, it’s a pinewood frame, steel springs, and layers of flax, horsetail hair, and cotton and wool batting.
It took four artisans over 300 hours of labour across 18 months to complete.
As well as the main bedroom and bathroom, there’s also a guest bedroom, a walk-in closet, sitting area and private balcony; the suite sleeps up to six guests in total.
Then there is the large dining room for ultimate in-room dining experiences, and the living room where you can unwind.
Those who want to go exploring will also have exclusive access to the private dining room in The Study restaurant, as well as fine dining options from the on-board steakhouse and French restaurant.
Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises, said: "The Regent Suite is the ultimate example of how Seven Seas Splendor will astonish luxury travelers with an unrivaled experience, and it reflects the superior level of detail you’ll uncover throughout this stunning ship.
"In the Regent Suite, whether you’re entertaining friends in your elegant living room, enjoying caviar or lobster in your dining room, relaxing on your hand-crafted Hästens Vividus bed, delighting in unlimited spa services in your personal in-suite treatment area, or exploring a seaside village with your personal car and guide coordinated by your dedicated head butler, the holistic experience represents luxury perfected.”
