Regent Seven Seas Cruises , recognized as tops by luxury travel authorities, is on the move. Beginning in fall 2012, Regent will join sister company Oceania Cruises sailing from the Port of Miami. This week, the 700-guest Seven Seas Voyager completed an extensive rennovation of suites and public areas as part of the ultra-luxury line’s fleet-wide Seven Seas Signature initiative, a multi-million dollar, fleet-wide upgrade program.
“Seven Seas Voyager is emerging as a fresh new product with thoughtful touches that will enhance our guests’ overall experience,” says Mark Conroy, president of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “Through our Seven Seas Signature program we are continuing to evolve our brand and look forward to announcing additional updates in 2012-13.”
As part of the ship’s makeover, new ultra-plush carpeting was installed throughout the entire interior of the ship. 26 top suites got new wallpaper, fabrics, curtains, decor and artwork. In addition, Penthouse and higher-category suites have been equipped with iPads and selected suites also received new upgraded balcony furniture.
In the ship’s public rooms, the Voyager Lounge features new drapery and furniture. In the Conoisseur Club, new Turkish carpets were added. The pool area has an updated Pool Bar and expanded Pool Grill and marble-edged corridors now lead guests to new wood flooring in the ship’s Observation Lounge. The ship’s popular La Veranda restaurant has new chairs and wallpaper and the popular coffee bar on Deck 5 has been expanded to accommodate demand.
The onboard culinary experience was also enhanced as menus in Compass Rose, Signatures and Prime 7 venues feature a greater emphasis on dishes from the regions visited.
Their self-proclaimed “world’s most-inclusive luxury cruise experience ever” looks to be accurate. Regent Seven Seas fares are all-inclusive. All-suite accommodations come with round-trip air, highly personalized service, acclaimed cuisine, fine wines and spirits, sightseeing excursions in every port, a pre-cruise luxury hotel package and gratuities. The line’s three vessels, Seven Seas Mariner, Seven Seas Voyager, and Seven Seas Navigator, are among the most spacious at sea and visit more than 300 destinations around the globe.
