Regent Seven Seas Cruises is the world's most inclusive luxury cruise line.
The line's fares include all-suite accommodations, round-trip air, highly personalized service, acclaimed cuisine, fine wines and spirits, sightseeing excursions in every port, all gratuities, and a pre-cruise luxury hotel package and complimentary WiFi. Four luxurious, all-suite vessels, Seven Seas Navigator, Seven Seas Mariner, Seven Seas Voyager, and Seven Seas Explorer are among the most spacious at sea and visit 375 destinations around the globe.
Seven Seas Explorer is currently sailing her inaugural season along the azure waters of the glamorous Mediterranean Sea, bringing your clients to countless UNESCO World Heritage Sites, renowned museums and famous landmarks, as they fully immerse themselves in the wonders of Spain, Italy, France and Greece, as well as discover off-the-beaten-path boutique ports in Croatia, Slovenia and Cyprus. Then, on November 16, 2016 she crosses the Atlantic, when she embarks on her Caribbean itineraries from Miami.
Carrying just 750-guests, every inch of the luxurious all-suite, all-balcony ship evokes elegance and grace. Seven Seas Explorer sets a high benchmark not only as a ship that far surpasses the current standard in luxury cruising, but it is recognized industry-wide as the most luxurious ship ever built. The level of grandeur throughout is unlike anything seen before, from its lavish suites to its elegant public spaces and gourmet restaurants.
Upon stepping on board, your clients will be wowed by the meticulous level of craftsmanship and lavish detail. Beginning with the main atrium lobby, a beautiful, circular inlaid marble floor marks the heart of the ship. Steps away and anchoring the lobby are twin, elegantly etched glass staircases that draw the eye upward towards a magnificent cascading crystal chandelier. And that is just the beginning, the promise of a high luxury continues throughout the vessel.
Among the 375 all-private-balcony suites of Seven Seas Explorer is the Regent Suite – the world’s most exclusive address. This plush two-bedroom, 3,875 square-foot suite comes complete with an in-suite spa, a first at sea, with personal sauna, steam room and treatment area. The astounding degree of design and artistry is not just reserved for the Regent Suite. Each suite category features its own unique layout and design characteristics, ranging from the warm and welcoming summer-home influenced Deluxe Veranda Suite to the sumptuous and alluring sapphire jewel inspired Penthouse Suite. The spacious interiors are complemented by the largest balconies in the cruise industry, providing guests ample space to enjoy fresh ocean breezes without leaving their suite.
Seven Seas Explorer features an unrivaled collection of specialty, casual and main dining options for your clients to enjoy aboard the ship. Each restaurant exhibits its own intricate and elegant design, providing a dining atmosphere that deftly complements the high service level and diverse menu offerings.
Catering to your clients’ culinary desires, the ship will offer three distinct specialty restaurants, including Regent Seven Seas Cruises' fleet-wide signature steakhouse, Prime 7. Aboard Seven Seas Explorer, Prime 7 features décor highlighted by dark purple hues, silver accents and plush leather seating, reminiscent of a London private member club. Intimate seating alcoves specifically for couples looking to enjoy a secluded, romantic meal are sure to be a highlight with guests. The restaurant's luscious ambiance will only be matched by the gourmet offerings on its menu.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises' hallmark main dining room, Compass Rose, has a contemporary look. The restaurant's look features a sophisticated and airy design motif with a beautiful, cascading aqua-blue chandelier that conveys a whimsical grotto feel throughout the restaurant. Guests can enjoy casual indoor and al fresco dining in the effortlessly chic Italian Riviera-inspired La Veranda on Deck 11. With incredible 270-degree ocean views, La Veranda offers a delectable buffet for breakfast and lunch, and transforms into an elegant fine dining restaurant, Sette Mari at La Veranda, each evening for dinner.
Of all the pleasures of cruising, enriching the mind can be among the most fulfilling. Gaining insider’s knowledge and participating in one-of-a-kind programs elevates the experience and brings unforgettable memories. Aboard Seven Seas Explorer, your clients gain insight into world affairs from a Smithsonian field expert and enjoy highly-individualized instruction from an executive chef at the Culinary Arts Kitchen.
Your clients attending classes in the Culinary Arts Kitchen will receive highly-individualized instruction, as each student will cook from their own personal workstation for authentic, hands-on training. The culinary workstations are fully equipped with top-of-the-line induction cooktops, stainless steel sinks and a comprehensive collection of additional cooking essentials.
The state-of-the-art culinary center also features floor-to-ceiling windows. With its perch on Deck 11, the magnificent ocean vistas will perfectly complement the epicurean delights being prepared within the center.
The instruction at the Culinary Arts Kitchen covers a wide array of topics including healthy cooking, fish and shellfish preparation, perfect food and wine pairings for entertaining, delectable mini-desserts, high-heat grilling, and classes inspired by the destinations visited by the ship.
Deck 12 combines a dedicated sports area with a sun-deck for those wishing to enjoy more active pursuits or soak in the sun with spectacular views over the horizon. The sports area features a deck shuffleboard, putting greens, golf nets, bocce court, paddle tennis and jogging track. The sun-deck has inviting circular loungers where guests can feel the ocean breezes and unwind.
Drawing inspiration from high-end pool retreats at exclusive boutique hotels, with a fusion of Southeast Asian design elements and Caribbean accents, the Deck 11 oasis provides an intimate setting for relaxing, swimming and enjoying the ever changing vistas. With rich teak, natural stone and luxurious marble, the geometrical design of the ship’s centerpiece pool evokes a welcoming, modern feel.
The pool provides the perfect respite for your clients seeking a refreshing swim and offers an expansive 3-inch deep shallow section for guests looking to cool off by dipping their toes in the water poolside. Paying homage to the ocean, sea-inspired ceramic tiles line the pool. At the end nearest the Pool Grill, shaded under contemporary circular overhangs, are two hot tubs perfect for relaxing after a day of exploring.
Sheer curtains impart a level of intimacy around the pool, creating secluded, private escapes where your clients can relax. Stylish double loungers, some perched on raised platforms, enhance the elegant design, with a center stage that creates the perfect venue for special poolside musical performances.
Adjacent to the pool area, guests can enjoy al fresco covered dining or grab a bite to go at the Pool Grill which serves breakfast, lunch, snacks, sweets and refreshing drinks.
For your discerning clients who wish for a more exclusive experience, upgrade them to a Penthouse Suite and they will enjoy the services of a personal Butler.
Butlers customize the cruise experience for your clients, as they determine their personal style and onboard requirements. They also assist with myriad requests, from unpacking and packing to arranging private parties and making restaurant, spa and shore excursion reservations on their behalf. They will even deliver dinner course-by-course in their suite.
