The Regent Seven Seas Explorer is an all-balcony, all-suite luxury cruise ship. Each stateroom comes with separate sitting and sleeping areas, divided by thick curtains; a spacious oceanfront balcony, among the industry’s largest; and a flatscreen television with films on demand. Veranda suites start at 219 square feet and come with decadent marble-and-stone bathrooms, plush bathrobes and slippers, and complimentary champagne and fresh fruit upon arrival. Upgrade to a penthouse suite and enjoy all that plus an in-suite mini bar, complimentary use of a tablet and Bluetooth speaker in room, and the services of a private butler. And the singularly decadent Regent Suite features 2,026 square feet of pure luxury, from unlimited in-suite spa services, an outdoor jacuzzi and an assortment of priority access privileges.
Dining & Gastronomy
As part of its all-inclusive cruising style, Regent Seven Seas Cruises does not charge extra for specialty dining. This means there’s no reason not to eat at a different dining venue each night.
The Seven Seas Explorer features three specialty restaurants, a main dining room, a chic open-air buffet and, of course, a poolside grill. The cuisine on the Explorer definitely takes a turn towards the gourmet. Even during a casual bite at the Pool Grill, guests will be pleasantly surprised to discover the high-quality ingredients, excellent selection, and made-to-order options. The ship’s main dining room, Compass Rose, cultivates an atmosphere of modern elegance with its Murano glass artwork and chic furnishings. Guests can mix and match from a variety of mains and sides, creating a highly-customizable multicourse meal to suit their every desire. And the specialty restaurants Prime 7, Pacific Rim and Chartreuse take guests around the world with gourmet takes on quality steakhouse, Asian and French cuisine.
Entertainment and Activities
With five separate lounges, bars and casinos, the Seven Seas Explorer caters with its entertainment options for adults of exquisite tastes. The Meridian Lounge, Explorer Lounge and Observation Lounge offer sophisticated spaces for a pre-dinner cocktail, and resident musicians provide light entertainment in the evenings. The Connoisseur Club is the perfect place to enjoy a cigar and a glass of single-malt whiskey from the comfort of a leather armchair. This is the only place smoking is allowed onboard. The onboard casino is open on sea days and offers an upscale, Monte Carlo ambience. And the Constellation Theater regularly hosts a French cabaret and an original, Beatles-themed musical.
A state-of-the-art fitness center and the refined Canyon Ranch Spa Club will ensure guests look and feel their best throughout the cruise. Indulge in a range of high-end beauty treatments including signature massages, seaweed treatments and facials. The fitness center offers regular Pilates, yoga and aerobics classes, and a jogging track allows guests to keep up their fitness routine with an unparalleled view.
The dress code on the Seven Seas Explorer is casual chic. While cruise wear – including swimwear – is common in daytime, passengers tend to dress a bit smarter at dinner, with men wearing pants and collared shirts, and women wearing slacks, skirts, sweaters or blouses. Only cruises of 16 days or more will feature a Formal Night, and even these are optional. On formal nights, guests can choose to whether to wear a tuxedo or suit, evening gown or cocktail dress.
