Regent Seven Seas Cruises, the ultra-luxury cruise line with three all-inclusive, all-suite and all-balcony ships, is sending the Seven Seas Navigator into dry dock for a major renovation.
The smallest of the three ships with only 490-passengers, refurbishment of the Seven Seas Navigator will begin in mid-May. When she emerges two weeks later, the Navigator will boast an array of upgrades, improvements and redesigns.
The ship’s eight Grand Suites and Master Suites will be completely redone, reflecting Regent Seven Seas’s commitment to offer the ultimate level of cruising luxury. These eight suites will receive new built-in cabinetry, custom furnishings and new soft goods, to include designer bedding and accessories and plush carpeting. Balcony furnishings will also be replaced.
Along with the Grand and Master Suites being renovated, all of the Navigator Suites will be refitted with new carpeting and wall coverings. If that isn’t enough, even all of the suites’ balconies will have new teak surfaces.
“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.”
All 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.
Even La Veranda, the ship’s popular breakfast and lunch buffet venue, is getting a new look. In the evening, the new Sette Mari at La Veranda will welcome dinner guests with an extensive menu of authentic antipasti and Italian specialty dishes. 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.
