Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ 490-guest, all-suite Seven Seas Navigator will enter dry-dock in mid-May, signaling Phase Four of the line’s fleet-wide Seven Seas Signature enhancement initiative.
The two-week renovation will encompass a complete redecoration of the ship’s eight Grand Suites and Master Suites and the debut of Sette Mari at La Veranda, an intimate Italian dining experience offering both buffet and a la carte service. Phase Four underscores Regent Seven Seas’ ongoing commitment to delivering the most sought-after, all-inclusive luxury travel experience.
“We are constantly looking for ways to enhance and evolve the Regent Seven Seas experience, from small touches to major renovations,” stated Mark Conroy, the line’s president. “Whether our guests are strolling the refreshed teak Pool Deck or enjoying a Porterhouse steak in the expanded Prime 7, they will feel the subtle luxury and unparalleled comfort of these enhancements throughout.”
The ship’s Grand Suites and Master Suites will be completely renovated featuring new built-in cabinetry, custom-crafted furnishings, as well as new headboards and bedding, balcony furniture, plush carpeting and designer accessories. All Navigator Suites will be refreshed with new plush carpeting and wall coverings.
Concierge-level Suites and above will have modern amenities such as illy coffeemakers, along with a range of new perks and privileges, including priority shore excursion and restaurant reservations, and enhanced amenities, as the program is rolled out starting May 30, 2012. All suites will benefit from new teak on all of the ship’s balconies for an added dose of luxury and comfort.
Masterfully repurposing La Veranda, the ship’s popular breakfast and lunch buffet venue, Sette Mari at La Veranda will welcome dinner guests with an extensive menu of authentic antipasti and Italian specialty dishes. Guests can choose a selection of items from the buffet and also order al momento (cooked to order). Al fresco dining is also available so guests can dine under the stars.
Additional public room enhancements include enlarging Prime 7, the ship’s modern American-style steakhouse, to accommodate 60 guests. A new contemporary sculpture at its entrance will set a warm, relaxed tone. The popular Galileo Lounge will also be renewed and redecorated.
As part of the ship’s fresh new look, ultra-plush carpeting will be installed throughout the public spaces. Guests who enjoy leisure pursuits will find enhanced and refreshed spaces on Deck 12 including updated saunas at the Canyon Ranch SpaClub, while the luxurious teak-covered pool area on Deck 10 will have renewed surfaces.
