Regent Seven Seas Cruises has announced the Seven Seas Marinerone of the world’s first all-suite and all-balcony cruise ships, will receive a bow-to-stern refurbishment this April.

After a 20 day dry dock at Chantier Naval de Marseille, the Seven Seas Mariner will reemerge with new culinary experiences, elegant new suite designs, and completely renewed modern guest spaces.

President and Chief Executive Officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises Jason Montague says that after the refurbishment, Seven Seas Mariner will take travelers on a fully immersive, luxury Alaska experience.

“We are delighted to relaunch the refurbished Seven Seas Mariner for what will be an unforgettable 2018 Alaska season,” said Jason.

“The Seven Seas Mariner will have been elevated to the highest standards of elegance…[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.”

Seven Seas Mariner’s pool deck will receive the most comprehensive redesign, with a new open layout and teak flooring throughout. Guests can enjoy expanded lunch selections ‘a la minute’ from new infrared barbecue grills and buffet bars at the Pool Grill.

A remodelled Library will include dark-wood bookshelves contrasted against cream furnishings, crowned by a glistening copper-adorned chandelier. A vibrant cobalt-and-silver colour scheme will complete the country club ambiance in the Connoisseur Club cigar lounge. 

The shipboard Canyon Ranch Spa Club will receive a new design, featuring pebble-stone tiles and light-wood accents in the treatment rooms. The adjoining fitness and aerobics centre will also see new state-of-the-art machines and equipment.

Seven Seas Mariner guests will experience appointed suites, with views from their private balcony or sitting area. All suites will feature walk-in closets and oversised, marble-accented bathrooms with L’Occitane amenities.

The flagship restaurant, Compass Rose, will be fitted with crystal chandeliers, recessed ceiling lights, leather chairs and cobalt blue drapes. The new specialty restaurant, Chartreuse, will be installed during the ship’s refurbishment and will debut a modern French menu.
