Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ Seven Seas Mariner has completed a major renovation project, marking the conclusion of the luxury cruise line’s fleet-wide refurbishment program designed to bring the fleet’s design and amenities in line with the new flagship, Seven Seas Explorer.
Seven Seas Mariner has completed a 20-day drydock that added new culinary experiences, new suite designed and renewed guest spaces.
All of the ship’s restaurants were redesigned with enhanced art and décor. The newly updated steakhouse on Seven Seas Mariner, Prime 7, now has unique, rectangular light fixtures that are reminiscent of a sculpture across the ceiling, and cream-colored, pillow-backed chairs contrasted by sapphire walls and wood finishes.
The flagship restaurant Compass Rose is completely reimagined, with a menu offering guests an improved level of personal customization and choice, as well as a new look with grand crystal chandeliers, rich wooden accents and celestial blue furnishings.
Replacing Signatures is Chartreuse, first introduced aboard Seven Seas Explorer and Seven Seas Voyager. The restaurant has new furnishings, china, flooring and décor, along with a completely new menu that highlights modern French cuisine. Further enhancements were also made to La Veranda.
Seven Seas Mariner’s pool deck also received a comprehensive redesign, with a new open layout and teak flooring throughout. The centerpiece is a new mosaic-tiled pool, with a broad ledge for lounging in shallow water and surrounded by white daybeds. Guests can enjoy expanded lunch selections at the outdoor Pool Grill, including steaks, chops, salmon, chicken and sausage, all prepared to order from new infrared barbeque grills.
Inside, all public spaces received new carpeting, art, furniture and décor, creating a new look throughout the ship. The Reception area has new marble desks and original gold leaf accented artwork by Atlanta-based artist Tom Swanston. The grand spiral staircase in the atrium is crowned by a new large-scale blown glass art installation designed by Canadian studio Tsunami Glass.
The completely remodeled and relocated library now has dark-wood bookshelves contrasted against cream furnishings, crowned by a copper-adorned chandelier.
The previous library space makes way for expanded seating at Coffee Connection. The Internet café is now located at the back of Coffee Connection, allowing guests the ability to stay connected with friends and family back home with free unlimited Internet access.
Outside on deck 6, there is all new teak decking and new sun loungers. The Card Room, Boutiques and The Casino were also all completely revamped from the steel up.
The shipboard Canyon Ranch Spa received a soothing new design, with pebble-stone tiles and light-wood accents in the treatment rooms. The adjoining fitness and aerobics center offers new machines and equipment to help guests maintain healthier, active regimens while at sea.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises also redesigned all guest suites. The suites have new Elite Slumber Beds framed by padded leather headboards, sitting areas furnished with comfortable sofas, accent tables and new artwork, as well as private balconies. All suites have walk-in closets and oversized, marble-accented bathrooms with L’Occitane amenities. Additionally, guests of Penthouse Suites enjoy additional in-suite bath amenities by Guerlain, and Distinctive Suite guests also receive Bottega Veneta.
With its renovations complete, Seven Seas Mariner is repositioning to the Pacific Northwest to take travelers on 15 seven-, 10- and 11-night Alaska itineraries, which alternate departures from Vancouver and Seward. Free unlimited shore excursions and free airfare are included as part of the cruise fare.
