Seven Seas Voyager is a cruise ship for Regent Seven Seas Cruises headquartered in Miami, Florida. The vessel entered service in 2003. Every cabin on board is a suite with a balcony. In 2006, a Forbes.com article listed the Asia leg of the Voyager's world cruise as the most expensive cruise in the Asia region.[3]

2010 Star Ferry accident[edit]

On 14 March 2010, as Seven Seas Voyager sailed out of Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong, it hit the back of a Star Ferry, known as Twinkling Star, and caused minor damage to the ferry. No one was injured.[4]

2013 Crew Member Death[edit]

On 3 February 2013, Jackie Kastrinelis, 24, of Groveland, Massachusetts, USA was found dead inside her cabin on the Seven Seas Voyager in Darwin Harbour, Australia.[5] The 24-year-old woman had been a crew member since 2011 and was the lead singer in the ship’s musical show. A source said Kastrinelis suffered a head injury during a rehearsal and may have been given medication by a ship doctor.
