Seven Seas Mariner returns to service following extensive overhaul

In the final phase of Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ $125 million refurbishment programme, the company has completed its bow-to-stern upgrade of Seven Seas Mariner.

The company hopes the investment has elevated the ship to the level of elegance set by Seven Seas Explorer and will provide a consistent look and feel to the entire fleet.

Seven Seas Mariner completed a 20-day drydock at Chantier Naval de Marseille, and has re-emerged with dramatic new culinary experiences, elegant new suite designs, and completely renewed elegant guest spaces.

“I’m constantly amazed by the attention to detail that goes into our ships, and the newly refurbished Seven Seas Mariner is no different, from the luxurious décor down to the intricate design elements,” said Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer for Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

“With the culmination of our fleet-wide refurbishment programme, and with the construction of Seven Seas Splendour underway, we are perfecting luxury and indeed have the most luxurious fleet at sea.”


Offering an even more elevated dining experience, all restaurants on board Seven Seas Mariner received a stylish redesign with enhanced art and décor.

The newly updated steakhouse on Seven Seas Mariner, Prime 7, is now unlike any other restaurant in Regent’s fleet, with unique, rectangular light fixtures that are reminiscent of a sculpture across the ceiling, and cream-coloured, pillow-backed chairs contrasted by sapphire walls and wood finishes.

The flagship restaurant Compass Rose is completely reimagined, with a popular menu offering guests an unprecedented level of personal customisation and choice, as well as a stunning new look with grand crystal chandeliers, rich wooden accents and celestial blue furnishings.

Seven Seas Mariner’s pool deck also received a comprehensive redesign, with a new open layout and teak flooring throughout.

The centrepiece is a new mosaic-tiled pool, featuring a broad ledge for lounging in shallow water and surrounded by plush, white daybeds.

Guests can enjoy expanded lunch selections at the outdoor Pool Grill, including steaks, chops, salmon, chicken and sausage, all prepared to order from new infrared barbeque grills.

Inside, all public spaces received new carpeting, world-class art, furniture and décor, creating a new look throughout the ship.

The Reception area, featuring new marble desks and original gold leaf accented artwork by Atlanta-based artist Tom Swanston.

The grand spiral staircase in the atrium is crowned by a new large-scale blown glass art installation designed by Canadian studio Tsunami Glass, creating a beautiful view as you descend the glass elevators.

The completely remodelled and relocated library exudes comfort with dark-wood bookshelves contrasted against cream furnishings, crowned by a glistening copper-adorned chandelier.

With plenty of books to choose from and with doors that can provide a quiet retreat, guests will enjoy relaxing and enriching their minds in the new library.

Outside on deck six, there is all new teak decking and new sun loungers, allowing guests to comfortably relax in peace and enjoy the ocean breeze and soak in a sunrise or sunset.

With her renovations complete, Seven Seas Mariner is repositioning to the Pacific Northwest to take travellers on 15 unforgettable seven, ten- and 11-night immersive, Alaska itineraries, which alternate departures from Vancouver and Seward.
