Regent Seven Seas Cruises Enters Final Phase of Fleetwide Refurbishment Program

Newspapers

Fort Lauderdale – September 28, 2009 – Regent Seven Seas Cruises announced today that its 490-guest Seven Seas Navigator will undergo a comprehensive, stem-to-stern refurbishment just in time to debut on a New Year’s Caribbean voyage, departing Fort Lauderdale on December 28. With one of the highest space ratios in the cruise industry, the intimate, all-suite ship is considered to be one of the most luxurious afloat.

Regent Seven Seas Cruises is an award-winning ultra-luxury line offering cruises to all seven continents. The extensive enhancements to Seven Seas Navigator complete a fleetwide rejuvenation that was directed by the renowned marine architects Yran & Storbraaten of Oslo. Their design directive was for the ship to radiate elegance and sophistication, resplendent with rich fabrics, textures and elegant furnishings.

“Seven Seas Navigator is beloved by our loyal repeat guests because it feels like you are cruising aboard a world-class luxury yacht,” stated Mark Conroy, President of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “After her makeover she will sport a stunning new look and feel, two new dining venues and a spa operated by the renowned Canyon Ranch.”

New Dining Options Abound
A contemporary interpretation of a classic American steakhouse, Prime 7 will feature a stylish dÉcor and an innovative menu of the finest prime-aged steaks and chops along with fresh seafood and poultry. Rivaling elegant restaurants ashore, a rich palette of green and golden hues will create an ambiance of glamour and intimacy. Supple leather, polished granite and burnished woods will set an impressive stage accented by custom-designed china, flatware and crystal.

Compass Rose – the ship’s main dining room – will appear dramatically different. New and sumptuous armchairs in rich jewel tones of cranberry and opal atop plush carpets of russet and cocoa will create a regal setting for gourmet dining. New draperies, china, silver and glassware will complete the redesign.

La Veranda, offering indoor and outdoor seating, will replace the current Portofino’s restaurant. New furniture, carpeting and window treatments will be complemented by signature table settings. The new restaurant will serve breakfast and lunch in a casually elegant atmosphere and, in the evening, feature regionally themed specialty dinners.

High atop the ship on Deck 10, a new Pool Grill featuring a barbeque grill, hot and cold buffet, panini sandwich station and coffee and dessert area creates a casual, al fresco dining option that is open throughout the day.

The ship’s bars and lounges will also receive masterful transformations. A mix of traditional and contemporary furnishings with complementary upholstery, carpeting and curtains will give Stars Lounge an eclectic ambiance reminiscent of a chic designer estate home.

Galileo’s will sport bold new interiors of burgundy and gold offset with accents of soft lavender, sky and moss while a sleek new bar area is awash with rich, tufted textiles and polished stone flooring. A new al fresco lounge has been created on the terrace and features comfortable seating areas with plump sofas and chaises overlooking the sea.

The Navigator Lounge will also feature a new dÉcor with rich hues of cappuccino, camel and navy accented by bold apple-green and lemon to create a vibrant, urbane feel. The ship’s card room and library will be redecorated as well and all public spaces throughout the ship are being refreshed.

The Debut of Canyon Ranch SpaClub
The Canyon Ranch SpaClub will feature a state-of-the-art spa, wellness and fitness facility, plus a luxurious full-service beauty salon. SpaClub will offer the most desirable spa amenities available: massage, body and skin-care treatment rooms, a gym and weight room with cardio and weight training equipment, a juice bar, men’s and women’s locker rooms, thalassotherapy, sauna and steam rooms.

The facility will offer array of rejuvenating spa treatments, some created specifically for RSSC guests, include massages and therapeutic bodywork, mud, aromatherapy, ayuvedic and seaweed treatments, facials and masks featuring Canyon Ranch’s award winning Your Transformation skincare products, conditioning body scrubs and therapeutic body cocoons.

Dazzling New Destinations
Seven Seas Navigator will operate seven- to 11-night cruises to the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America this winter, followed by a summer season of seven-night Alaska cruises between Vancouver and Anchorage. Following her Alaska season, Seven Seas Navigator embarks on her lengthiest and most exotic voyage to date, with a 96-night Grand Asia Pacific cruise sailing from Anchorage, Alaska to San Francisco, California.
