- January 17, 2005, at ~1 am, the vessel suffered a generator room fire burning through electrical cables of Diesel Generator 2. It also damaged the electrical cables of Diesel Generator 1’s control system. The accident caused a temporary complete loss of power (blackout). Power was later restored using the shaft generator of the main engines. At reduced cruising speed, the ship returned to home-port Fort Lauderdale FL with ~ 12 hours delay. The next scheduled 7-day Caribbean cruise was canceled.
- Note: The ship’s owner Regent Seven Seas Cruises (RSSC) is a company that was initially named “Radisson Seven Seas Cruises” (same abbrev).
- November-December 2009, several scheduled cruises (Nov 8 through Dec 18) were canceled as the ship had to enter drydock for repairs. Instead of the January 2010 scheduled drydock in Charleston SC (USA), the repairs were done in Hamburg Germany.
- November 9, 2011, the USCG reported “material failure”.
- May 12, 2015, Canadian news media reported the ship docked in Vancouver BC carrying a dead 20-m long whale on its bulbous bow.
- In 2016, RSSC announced the cancellation of the scheduled for 2017 “Northwest Passage Cruise”. The itinerary (scheduled departure on July 19, 2017, from Seward Alaska to Montreal Canada) also visited Greenland. The decision was based on 2016’s weather pattern, deemed by navigational experts as dangerous with too much sea ice packs on the route in July. They recommended postponing the cruise until August, but this would have affected other following itineraries. Instead the “Northwest Passage”, the cruise ship did 3 itineraries – Vancouver BC to San Francisco CA, San Francisco to Miami FL, and Miami to Montreal.
- September 8, 2017, Transport Canada issued a fine of USD 36,000 for exceeding the 10 knot (18,5 kph / 11,5 mph) speed restriction in St Lawrence Gulf. The Canadian Government introduced the speed limit in early August to prevent deaths of right whales (large baleen whales) which are endangered species.
Crew & Passenger incidents (injuries, crimes)
- November 11, 2006, a 74-year-old male passenger (of US origin) was medevaced after suffering a heart stroke. The ship was on a Transatlantic repositioning cruise from Europe to Florida USA, and had to be diverted to Bermuda in order to allow air rescue.
Norovirus cruise illness outbreaks
- June 2013, CDC reported the vessel failed its June 16 health inspection, resulting in score 79. Note: scores of and under 85 are considered by CDC as unsatisfactory.
- April 2007, CDC reported a Norovirus outbreak affected 22 passengers (out of 456, or 4,8%) and 0 crew (out of 350, or 0%). The incident occurred on a 12-day Caribbean and Bermuda cruise (itinerary April 5-16) round-trip from Fort Lauderdale (Florida USA).
- Note: When the itinerary doesn’t include US cruise ports, the ship is not required to report to CDC, thus no official illness report would be issued.
- Note: All sick suffering from Norovirus symptoms (vomiting, diarrhea) are quarantined to their cabins for at least 24 hours.
