Radisson Seven Seas is known today as Regent Seven Seas Cruises. The company was purchased by an investment group called Apollo Management in 2008 for $1 billion and the company is headquartered today in Miami, Florida. Apollo Management Group also owns 50 percent of Norwegian Cruise Line, as well as 100 percent of Oceania Cruises.
Radisson Seven Seas vessels travel to more than 300 ports worldwide and the cruise line markets itself as a luxury ship that features boats with a smaller number of passengers. Its cruises are all-inclusive, and even alcoholic beverages and most shore excursions are generally included as part of the cruise line’s base pricing. Because the company offers these shore excursions, it may be responsible for the safety of passengers and crew both onboard its vessels and at port. If problems arise, a maritime lawyer at Lipcon, Margulies, Alsina & Winkleman, P.A. should be consulted to provide assistance.
Radisson Seven Seas’ Fleet
There are currently four cruise liners that are part of the Radisson Seven Seas fleet, and another ship is expected to come into service in 2020. The four cruise liners that are currently operational include:
- The Seven Seas Navigator
- The Seven Seas Voyager
- The Seven Seas Mariner
- The Seven Seas Explorer
The Seven Seas Explorer entered service in July of 2016. The Navigator and Voyager were also refurbished in 2016 and the Mariner was refurbished in 2014 and is expected to be refurbished again in 2017. While the fleet is being kept modernized through regular upgrades, issues still can and do arise aboard Radisson vessels.
Cases Against Radisson Seven Seas
Radisson Seven Seas has experienced problems aboard its ships that have caused harm to passengers and to crew members.

Two days prior to the end of the luxury cruise, the 76-year-old passenger suffered a fatal heart attack.
