Originally launched by Radisson Hotels as a one-ship cruise line with the Radisson Diamond in 1992, this company acquired Seven Seas Cruises in 1997 and became Radisson Seven Seas Cruises. The name was changed to Regent Seven Seas in 2007 and one of the ships. The Paul Gauguin permanently sailing in the South pacific, was sold to an independent company. There are currently three ships in service; Mariner, Navigator and Voyager. These are small luxury vessels with liquor and gratuities included in the cruise fare. Another small ship, the Explorer II sails in the Galapagos islands.
