The 735-foot cruise ship Seven Seas Explorer, owned by Regent Seven Sea Cruises and flagged in the Marshall Islands, enters the Port of Fernandina on Thursday morning. The luxury, all-suite, all-balconies ship will dock here without passengers, but with some crew staying onboard. According to the ship’s web page, she can take 750 guests and 552 crewmembers on a normal voyage. The "parked" ship could be here for several months as the cruise ship industry takes up a slack demand for cruises in the wake of the coronavirus epidemic.
