The first ship in the Regent Seven Seas Cruises fleet has re-entered service after a two week, bow to stern renovation. The Seven Seas Navigator refurbishment upgraded all suites and refreshed the decor throughout the vessel.
Seven Seas Navigator entered service in 1999, but interestingly she has no sister-ships. She is one-of-a-kind; the hull was build by the USSR as a satellite tracking ship, but when the iron curtain fell it was sold-off and fitted out as a luxury cruise ship instead.
Today, the intimate Seven Seas Navigator looks better than ever. The 490-guest, all-suite cruise ship has benefited from a range of stunning improvements – part of a US$150 million plan to revitalise the entire fleet.
One of the most notable changes made during the Seven Seas Navigator refurbishment was the redesign of the speciality restaurant called Prime 7. The American steakhouse has been given a dramatic new look, with dark imperial blue walls as well as gold highlights and luxurious light leather chairs. Guests are also sure to notice the new artwork on the walls and the sculptures.
The popular Stars Lounge has also been completely reimagined. It now looks like a bar in a chic Paris hotel. There is new carpet, new furniture and new wall coverings as well as more gold highlights. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail before dinner.
In addition, the Navigator Lounge had a dramatic makeover during the Seven Seas Navigator refurbishment. Now there is more space and new comfortable furnishings. Indeed, all the public areas onboard Seven Seas Navigator have been refreshed, there is even new artwork on the walls.
The Spa on Seven Seas Navigator has also been made over and enlarged, with a dedicated pedicure and manicure area that has floor-to-ceiling ocean views.
Perhaps most importantly though, every single suite onboard Seven Seas Navigator has been refreshed. There is new carpeting and upholstery, more storage space in the closets and the teak verandas have been refinished. In fact no detail was overlooked; even the suite entrances were made more inviting with dark wood doors and new signage.
Seven Seas Navigator looks spectacular, and the first guests are already enjoying the refreshed ship as they sail on an 11-night voyage from London to Dublin.
