Regent Seven Seas Cruise Welcomes The Seven Seas Grandeur

Regent Seven Seas Cruise recently celebrated the arrival of its newest ship, Seven Seas Grandeur, with a glamorous gala in Miami. The exclusive black-tie event marked a significant milestone in Regent’s three decades of luxury cruising expertise, as VIP guests attended the celebration on board the highly anticipated new vessel, along with the unveiling of the custom-designed Fabergé Egg piece that will now be on display in the ship’s atrium. Designed by award-winning Studio DADO and built by premier shipbuilder Fincantieri in Italy, the ship has a gross tonnage of 55,500, a crew of 548, and accommodates only 746 guests, providing one of the highest space and staff-to-guest ratios in the industry. Captain Luciano Montesanto and his senior leadership team will command Seven Seas Grandeur’s maiden season, featuring transits of the Panama Canal, the U.S Eastern Seaboard, and a Mediterranean voyage later this summer. The ship will also explore Canada and New England in the fall and will then conclude its journey in the Caribbean to close out the year.

Characterised by its slender curves, this timepiece is just 5.65mm thick and is powered by the ultra-thin self-winding in-house calibre 2160 with a tourbillon. Operating at a frequency of 2.5Hz, it sustains an 80-hour power reserve while overseeing the display of hours, minutes and small seconds on the tourbillon carriage. The timepiece is also accompanied by two additional interchangeable straps in blue rubber and calfskin, equipped with a gemset pin buckle that can be swapped without the need for any tools.

Maison Francis Kurkdijan Ushers In The New Year With The Iconic Baccarat Rouge 540

It was on the 250th anniversary of Baccarat—French luxury house and manufacturer of fine crystals—that Maison Francis Kurkdijan and Baccarat struck a collaboration to birth the iconic Baccarat Rouge 540. The inspiration behind this unique fragrance stemmed from the moment clear crystal gradually fused with 24-karat gold powder to turn bright red, creating the glamorous scarlet red crystal. First released in a limited-edition series of 250 crystal bottles, the mysterious and addictive sillage of the Baccarat Rouge 540 quickly became an obsession. Evoking notes of ambery and woody floral accords, the Baccarat Rouge 540 is now available as eau de parfum, extrait de parfum and a rich variety of scented rituals that include scented hair mists, scented body lotions and more. The celebrated perfume is now available for purchase at the Pavilion Kuala Lumpur outlet and online.
