In 1997, the vessel entered service for RSSC-Radisson Seven Seas Cruises (in 2006 renamed Regent Seven Seas Cruises). In 2009, the cruise liner was acquired by Pacific Beachcomber (French Polynesia luxury hotels and resorts operator). The ship was refurbished in 2012 for USD 7 million.
The liner was specifically designed for navigation in the shallow seas of French Polynesia. Boat’s low draft allows visiting small seaports. The onboard experience is marked by the informal and relaxing environment, 5-star hotel amenities, premium service and luxury.
