Regent Spends $20 Million

Refurbishing Its Luxury Vessels

Regent Seven Seas has completed a $20 million fleetwide refurbishment program during a spring 2007 dry-dock program.

“As a six-star luxury cruise line, Regent Seven Seas Cruises offers top-of-the-line amenities and experiences for our guests," says Mark Conroy, Regent's president. "These latest refurbishments allow us to continue offering our guests the very best in comfort and elegance at sea."

As a result of the upgrades the 700-passenger, all-suite Seven Seas Voyager and Seven Seas Mariner, as well as the 490-passenger all-suite Seven Seas Navigator now feature Wi-FI  service for laptop computers and faster Internet connectivity overall, cell phone service, and iPods with Bose speakers in Butler suites.

Master and Grand Suites aboard the three ships now also feature personal Nespresso coffee machines, while each of the three ships’ Club.com computer lounges also now feature an espresso bar.

To continue its re-branding efforts -- from Radisson to Regent -- all crew have received training in what's called "Tao of Regent," helping the crew focus on the brand's essence, its values and service delivery. 

New services for guests? Guests in suites with butler service now have an à la carte butler menu. For example, they may choose their preferred canapés each day from multiple options.

Seven Seas Mariner’s March drydock also created a new space -- a coffee bar on Deck 6. Now, guests may enjoy a variety of edibles ranging from breakfast treats to oversized pastries. Lunch dishes include sandwiches, salads and soups.

This coffee bar will also offer after-dinner drinks, including a Regent Connoisseur list with a selection of ports and cognacs, chocolate truffles and pralines.

Aboard the Seven Seas Navigator, the gym and aerobics room were relocated to space formerly occupied by the Observation Lounge. In addition, a new Navigator Suite was added on deck 11.

Regent Seven Seas also now has new entertainment programming including the Regent Signature Orchestra and the Regent Singers and Dancers. See our story on the That's Entertainment page.

The 330-passenger Paul Gauguin received extensive refurbishments last year, but that ship does not sail from southern U.S. ports. It's based in Tahiti.
