The Seven Seas Navigator was the first all-suite cruise ship to sail the seas, redefining luxury for other ships that followed. Each suite is furnished with a European king-sized bed, a walk-in closet, an interactive flat-screen television, and separate sitting and sleeping areas. Suites start at 301 square feet, making them some of the most spacious staterooms on the market. Every suite has an ocean view, and most have their own balcony.
Penthouse Suites come with a variety of privileges and extra amenities such as a personal butler, welcome champagne, bathrobes and slippers, an in-room Bluetooth speaker, and exclusive discounts on certain shore excursions, hotels and land programs. The Master Suite offers all that and more. At a spacious 539 square feet, the Master Suite comes with a 200-square-foot balcony, a full in-suite liquor bar, in-suite caviar service, free unlimited Wi-Fi, and a complimentary cocktail party for up to eight guests.
Dining & Gastronomy
The Seven Seas Navigator has one specialty dining restaurant, a main dining room, a buffet, a café, and a grill. At night, the buffet turns into a second specialty restaurant, Sette Mari, which serves authentic Italian dishes paired with a selection of fine wines. Most popular among cruise passengers is the Prime 7, an American-style steakhouse specializing in classic meat and seafood dishes and dressed up with mouth-watering sauces. The main dining room, Compass Rose, received an extravagant makeover during a 2016 refurbishment and is now outfitted in sleek blues and silvers. Compass Rose specializes in diverse European and Continental dishes, but is also highly flexible and can cater to a variety of dietary needs such as vegetarian, kosher, or health-conscious Canyon Ranch fare. The Coffee Connection café serves pastries and sandwiches for lunch and dinner or a snack between meals, and the Pool Grill specializes in burgers and seafood grilled to perfection.
Entertainment and Activities
On cruises with Regent Seven Seas, the cruise destinations are the star of the show. Shore excursions are included in the price of the cruise, and most cruises focus on destination-intensive voyages with few or no sea days. The onboard activities are relatively low-key, with guests preferring to expend their energy on touring exotic destinations. During the day, guests can lounge at the pool, get lost in a good book at the library, or indulge in a card game or board game. Educational lectures are also a popular daytime activity. A Canyon Ranch Spa Club offers a range of health and beauty treatments, including gender-segregated steam rooms and saunas to promote health and wellness.
Evening entertainment is geared towards mature adults. Enjoy a nightcap at the cocktail bar Galileo’s, which often features live musicians. Or try your luck at the onboard casino, which offers blackjack, roulette, poker and slot machines. The Seven Seas Lounge is the largest entertainment venue on the ship, regularly hosting musicals, cabaret sets and acrobatic performances.
Although Regent Seven Seas is not geared towards families, the Seven Seas Navigator has introduced children’s programming on some of its shorter summer cruises. These cruises are increasingly popular among multigenerational families, and the cruise line now offers a teen lounge, children’s activities, and, for a fee, in-suite babysitting services.
Passengers on the Seven Seas Navigator tend to dress resort-casual or smart-casual during the day, and elegant-casual after 6 p.m. Women tend to wear skirts or slacks paired with blouses or sweaters, and for men, slacks with collared shirts are typical. The final evening of each cruise has a more relaxed dress code, though some passengers choose to dress up anyways. Only longer cruises will feature Formal Nights, which require more elegant attire: for women, a pantsuit or slacks or a knee-length dress, and for men, slacks and a collared shirt or suit – jacket optional. Of course, those who choose to break out the ball gowns and tuxedos on Formal Night are also welcome.
