Regent Seven Seas Cruises announced it will serve guests Vero Still and Sparkling water fleetwide starting this spring. The company says Vero is the gold-standard on-premise water purification system in luxury hotels, resorts and Michelin-starred restaurants worldwide, using a proprietary five-stage nano-filtration process to reduce impurities, chemicals and imperfections.
The transition from traditional bottled water to premium Vero Still and Sparkling water will eliminate approximately two million plastic bottles annually across the cruise line’s fleet while improving the taste of complimentary still and sparkling water. Vero’s onboard purification and filling process will enable the cruise line to purify, chill and serve in Vero luxury glass bottles still and sparkling water on all its ships. Vero Water is a sustainable alternative to traditional bottled water, eliminating single-use plastic bottles on all Regent voyages and reducing carbon emissions every time it’s served.
As part of its Sail & Sustain environmental program, Regent will be the first luxury ocean cruise line to eliminate single-use plastic bottles. The cruise line recently eliminated single-use plastic straws.
Vero Water service will be implemented in two phases during the coming year. Phase One focuses on implementing the onboard water service in suites, restaurants, lounges and bars on board Seven Seas Voyager (by April 5), Seven Seas Explorer (by April 8), Seven Seas Mariner (by June 5) and Seven Seas Navigator (by June 18). In Phase Two, guests will be provided with their own eco-friendly reusable Vero Water bottle which will be theirs to use for on-shore experiences during the cruise, and to take home after the voyage.
