Regent Seven Seas Cruises will offer guests Vero Still and Sparkling water on all of its ship beginning Spring 2019.
Vero is the gold-standard on-premise water purification system used in luxury hotels, resorts and Michelin starred restaurants. It uses a proprietary five-stage Nano-Filtration process to reduce impurities, chemicals and imperfections.
Regent calculates that the transition from traditional bottled water to premium Vero Still and Sparkling water will eliminate approximately two million plastic bottles annually across the cruise line’s fleet. When Regent Seven Seas converts to the Vero on-board purification and filling process, each ship will be able to purify, chill and serve Vero still and sparkling water in luxury glass bottles. Eliminating single-use plastic bottles on all Regent voyages will reduce carbon emissions every time Vero bottled water is served.
Regent recently banned the use of plastic straws. As part of its Sail & Sustain environmental program, Regent will now be the first luxury ocean cruise line to eliminate single-use plastic bottles.
The conversion to Vero Water service will be implemented in two phases during 2019.
Phase One will add the onboard water service in suites, restaurants, lounges and bars to:
- Seven Seas Voyager by April 5
- Seven Seas Explorer by April 8
- Seven Seas Mariner by June 5
- Seven Seas Navigator by June 18
In Phase Two, Regent guests will be given their own eco-friendly reusable Vero Water bottle. They’ll be able to use their bottle while onboard, when going ashore and to bring home after the cruise.
