Regent invest $125 million in fleet upgrades
Regent Seven Seas Cruises announced plans for an extensive, $125 million fleet-wide refurbishment programme.
Beginning with Seven Seas Navigator this spring, the public spaces and suites to be refurbished will feature the same style featured on Seven Seas Explorer, providing guests with a consistent look-and-feel, no matter which Regent Seven Seas Cruises ship they choose to sail.
The two-year $125 million investment includes significant renovations of most public spaces along with a complete redesign of all categories of suites. Seven Seas Navigator will be the first to receive this upgrade, followed by Seven Seas Voyager in late 2016 and Seven Seas Mariner in the spring of 2017.
Seven Seas Navigator will essentially emerge as a brand new ship following the upcoming dry dock, with all suite categories, all lounges, the library, casino, boutiques, reception area, and signature restaurants Compass Rose and La Veranda having recently been completely renovated.
The refurbishments on Seven Seas Navigator comprise the first phase of the $125 million renovation project. The ship’s renovations will commence when it enters dry dock in Marseille, France on March 31. The project will be completed by 13 April, when the ship embarks on the 10-night Flawless French Riviera voyage from Barcelona to Rome.
Some highlights of the Seven Seas Navigator project include:
- All suites will receive a luxurious new look, with Elite Slumber beds being added along with new padded leather headboards, new sofas, carpeting, artwork and more.
- The Reception area will have new marble flooring with a compass design inlaid, new reception desk and stylize lighting.
- Compass Rose restaurant will have an ornate feature wall added, new crystal chandeliers, recessed celling lights and sleek leather chairs.
- La Veranda will feature a fresh and airy design making full use of the natural light provided by the floor-to-ceiling windows.
- The Galileo Lounge will feature abstract designs reminiscent of the solar system on its entrance, along with fibre-optic lights embedded in the ceiling to create a star filled vista above the wooden dancefloor. New high-backed wing chairs will also be added.
Following the dry dock, Seven Seas Navigator will spend the summer traversing the Mediterranean and late autumn in South Africa.
