Regent Seven Seas Cruises has confirmed details for the upcoming refurbishment of ‘Seven Seas Mariner’, claimed to be the world’s first all-suite, all-balcony cruise ship.
After a 20-day drydockin period in April, 2018 at Chantier Naval de Marseille, ‘Seven Seas Mariner’ will re-emerge with new culinary experiences, new suite designs, and completely renewed guest spaces.
After her drydock refurbishment, ‘Seven Seas Mariner’ will immediately reposition to the Pacific Northwest to start Alaskan cruises.
“We are delighted to relaunch the refurbished ‘Seven Seas Mariner’ for what will be an unforgettable 2018 Alaska season,” said Jason Montague, president and CEO of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “’Seven Seas Mariner’ will have been elevated to the highest standards of elegance, and guests will enjoy the highly personalised service delivered by every member of ‘Seven Seas Mariner’s’ exceptional staff and crew. Once ‘Seven Seas Mariner’ completes her refurbishment, Regent’s fleet will definitively be the most luxurious at sea.”
The luxury cruise ship’s pool deck will receive the most comprehensive redesign, with a new open layout and teak flooring throughout. The centre piece is a new mosaic-tiled pool, featuring a broad ledge for lounging in shallow water. Guests can enjoy expanded lunch selections, including steaks, chops, salmon, chicken and sausage, offered a la minute from new infra-red barbeque grills and new buffet bars at the Pool Grill.
Her atrium, corridors and guest spaces will all receive new carpeting, art, furniture and décor. The reception area, coffee connection, card room, boutiques, and the casino, will be completely revamped. A remodelled Library will be fitted with dark-wood bookshelves contrasted against cream furnishings, crowned by a copper-adorned chandelier.
A cobalt-and-silver colour scheme will complete the country club ambiance in the Connoisseur Club cigar lounge. In addition, the flooring on the Deck 6 Promenade will be replaced with new teak.
The Canyon Ranch SpaClub will receive a new design, featuring pebble-stone tiles and light-wood accents in the treatment rooms. The adjoining fitness and aerobics centre also will see new machines and equipment.
‘Seven Seas Mariner guests’ will have access to new suites, featuring décor, such as the Regent Elite Slumber bed with a padded leather headboard. The sitting area will be furnished with a sofa, accent table and new artwork. All suites feature walk-in closets and oversized, marble-accented bathrooms with L’Occitane amenities.
