MS Santa Regina is a roll-on/roll-off ferry that was in service for Strait Shipping Ltd in New Zealand. The ferry was built for overnight services between Marseille and Corsica in the Mediterranean. The Santa Regina was the flagship vessel for the Bluebridge ferry service, which runs from Wellington to Picton up to four times a day. Bluebridge competes with the longer running Interislander line, which also provides transport across Cook Strait.

In June 2015 Strait Shipping replaced the Santa Regina with the MS Strait Feronia.[1]
