This is What a $5,000-a-Day Cruise for Rich People Looks Like

Most people with tons of money have their fancy personal yachts to spend summers sailing off the coast of France in Saint-Tropez, but for rich people who want something bigger, there are luxury cruises — and we aren’t talking about some Royal Caribbean or Disney cruise for tourists.

We are talking about a cruise that costs $5,000 a day and offers 3,875-square-foot suites bigger than the average American home (2,600 square feet).

This is Regent’s Seven Seas Explorer, a $450 million state-of-the-art cruise ship currently being commissioned by the luxury cruise firm. Its two-week maiden voyage from Monte Carlo to Venice (then throughout the Mediterranean) is scheduled for the summer of 2016, but it’s already enticing the wealthy elite with its over-the-top rooms and amenities.

Massive luxury suites made of wood, leather and marble feature glass wall windows, a grand piano, in-room spas with saunas and steam rooms, and even a private garden.

Each Regent Suite also includes free and unlimited in-suite spa services, free first class flights to any U.S port, a personal butler, a private car and driver at every port, and a personalized bar that is replenished daily. Amenities are provided by Hermes, L’Occitane and other top designer brands.

With all the luxuries offered, it’s hard to imagine leaving your suite, but the cruise ship also includes a Monte Carlo-styled casino and an old Hollywood-styled theatre, along with multiple luxury restaurants and lounges.
