Regent Seven Seas Cruises confirmed details for the upcoming bow-to-stern refurbishment of Seven Seas Mariner, due to take place in a 20-day drydock in April at Chantier Naval de Marseille.

Seven Seas Mariner will re-emerge with dramatic new culinary experiences, elegant new suite designs, and completely renewed guest spaces. After her drydock refurbishment, Seven Seas Mariner will immediately reposition to the Pacific Northwest for Alaska cruising.

‘Seven Seas Mariner will have been elevated to the highest standards of elegance, and guests will enjoy the highly personalized service delivered by every member of Seven Seas Mariner’s exceptional staff and crew,' commented Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.   

The refurbished Seven Seas Mariner will sail 15 seven, 10- and 11-night itineraries, with alternate departures from Vancouver and Seward with an average of 44 free and unlimited shore excursions included as part of the cruise fare. 

Seven Seas Mariner’s pool deck will receive the most comprehensive redesign, with a new open layout and teak flooring throughout. The centerpiece 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 infrared barbeque grills and new buffet bars at the Pool Grill.

The ship’s 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 all be completely revamped from the steel up.

A remodeled Library will sport dark-wood bookshelves contrasted against cream furnishings, crowned by a glistening copper-adorned chandelier. A vibrant cobalt-and-silver color scheme will complete the country club ambiance in the Connoisseur Club cigar lounge. Additionally, the flooring on the Deck 6 Promenade will be replaced with new teak.

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

New appointed suites will feature décor such as the Regent Elite Slumber bed with plush, padded leather headboard, private balcony or sitting area, furnished with a sofa, accent table and new artwork. All suites feature walk-in closets and oversized, marble-accented bathrooms with L’Occitane amenities.

The flagship restaurant Compass Rose will include grand crystal chandeliers, recessed ceiling lights, sleek, leather chairs ringing intimate tables, and plush cobalt blue drapes accenting the restaurant’s oversized windows.

Regent’s new Chartreuse specialty restaurant also will be installed during the ship’s refurbishment and debut a modern French menu complemented with new furnishings, china, flooring and décor elements that together evoke memories of a fine Parisian restaurant.

Additionally, longtime favourite Prime 7 classic steakhouse will be reimagined with a new ultra-stylish design, featuring a vibrant blue and tan color scheme.

Seven Seas Mariner’s refurbishment concludes Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ $125m refurbishment program to elevate the fleet to the standard set by Seven Seas Explorer.
