The Seven Seas Voyager is a midsized luxury cruise ship. Balancing the traditional with the adventurous, she offers a destination-intensive cruise experience aimed at refined adults. The Seven Seas Voyager brings its sophisticated passengers around the world with utmost comfort and style, sailing to warm waters in the Caribbean and Mediterranean but also to far-away destinations in the Middle East and Asia, making passages across the Pacific Ocean and through the Suez Canal. Voyager is an excellent ship for travelers who want to see the world and still eat in a gourmet restaurant and stay in a luxury hotel every night.
Regent Seven Seas pioneered the all-inclusive cruise experience, meaning once the cruise is paid, all specialty dining, shore excursions and gratuities are included in the cost. You won’t be nickeled and dimed for every little thing on board – only optional extras, such as spa treatments, premium shore excursions or specialty wines costs more. The ship’s spacious interior and limited passenger account keep it from getting crowded, and guests will appreciate the high level of personal service.
The Seven Seas Voyager is an all-balcony, all-suite cruise ship, meaning every passenger can enjoy a romantic sunset dinner on their private veranda. Suites on the Seven Seas Voyager are characterized by tasteful décor, luxury amenities, and excellent attention to detail. Walk-in closets with a personal safe provide plenty of space for personal belongings, even on longer world cruises. A flatscreen TV in every room is perfect for a cozy night in, and a bottle of champagne and bathrobes and slippers will make every guest feel welcome from the very first night. The extraordinarily spacious staterooms start at 306 square feet, though higher classes of suites measure up at 500, 750, or more than 1,000 square feet. The Seven Seas Suite is perhaps the best value for money. In addition to the usual amenities, it comes with a personal butler, discounts on beverage packages and shore excursions, and a cashmere blanket for keeping warm on the balcony on a chilly evening. The Grand Suite and Master Suite come additionally with a complimentary private cocktail party for up to eight guests, in-suite caviar services, and priority reservations for specialty dining. Regent suites are the perfect way to experience true luxury at sea.
Dining & Gastronomy
Dining on the Seven Seas Voyager is the highlight of any cruise. With specialty restaurants included in the cost of the cruise, there’s nothing to stop you from eating steak and lobster every night. The most popular restaurant is Prime 7, a contemporary steakhouse outfitted with leather armchairs, dim lighting and dark, earthy fabrics. The restaurant serves a variety of decadent meat and seafood dishes, from a prime cut of steak prepared how you like to an entire king crab served with melted butter. The other specialty restaurant, Chartreuse, features contemporary French cuisine with a focus on gourmet ingredients and artful presentation. Compass Rose, the main dining room, recently underwent a major refurbishment and now comes across as gleaming and modern. The ever-changing menu is inspired by the regional cuisine, and a variety of vegetarian, vegan, kosher and low-calorie options are also available.
Entertainment and Activities
Activities on the Seven Seas Voyager revolve around shore excursions. Most shore excursions are included in the cost of the cruise, and the ones that Regent offers tend to be interesting, well-planned, and well-thought out. Passengers can choose a shore excursion based on their interests and their level of physical activity – tours are ranked by how physically strenuous they are, ranging from seated bus tours to long hikes. Be sure to sign up for shore excursions well in advance, as the included ones are popular and often fill up.
Onboard activities are low-key, catered towards a demographic of sophisticated adults looking for a relaxing vacation. The upscale Canyon Ranch Spa and Club provides a number of high-end wellness treatments ranging from a standard mani-pedi to therapeutic bodywork and seaweed facials. Book a romantic couple’s massage or spend your day switching between the sauna and the pool.
The Constellation Theater is the main entertainment venue onboard, featuring four different musical productions that take place nearly every night. Bars and lounges range from laid-back to lively, so whether you’re looking for a quiet place to sip an after-dinner drink, or an upbeat evenings filled with live entertainment, you’ll be sure to find one that fits your tastes. The Connoisseur Club is the only bar which allows smoking onboard, and is the perfect place to enjoy a cigar over a vintage scotch or glass of cognac.
Though Regent Seven Seas is an adult-oriented cruise line, children over one year old are welcome, and shorter summer cruises have begun introducing special children’s programming.
The dress code on the Seven Seas Voyager tends to lean resort-casual, with shorts, jeans and tennis shoes all being acceptable daytime wear. The evening dress code shifts to elegant casual, with passengers typically opting for formal pants, collared shirts, skirts, or blouses. Longer cruises will feature two optional Formal Nights. Passengers who prefer to stay elegant casual are welcome to do so, but for those who have been itching for a chance to break out the ball gowns and tux, this is their chance to do so. Most passengers aim for somewhere in the middle, with women wearing skirts or cocktail dresses and men in suits but not ties.
