Regent Seven Seas Mariner
When it debuted in 2011, Regent’s Seven Seas Mariner was the first all-suite, all balcony cruise ship. That distinction led it to win Ocean and Cruise News’ “Ship of the Year” award, and now more than 10 years later, the Seven Seas Mariner continues to remain ahead of the pack with its luxurious features and spacious feel.
Regent currently takes the vessel suited for 700 passengers to the Mediterranean, Australia and the South Pacific, South America, and Africa, through the Panama Canal, and on transatlantic itineraries. Throughout these extensive trips, cruisers get a choice of four gourmet restaurants and many casual options, while spacious facilities and personal service enhance the experience.
Even the basic accommodations prove to be elegant and detailed. Staterooms start with the 300 square feet Deluxe Veranda Suites. Insider, travelers find marble bathrooms, a private balcony and sitting area, a walk-in closet, a king-size bed, a mini-bar, a flat screen television, and champagne. Room service is on-call 24 hours and assists with serving dinner.
At the other end is the Master Suite, covering 2,002 square feet. Although accommodations overlap between the Deluxe Veranda Suites and everything in between, these staterooms stand out with two private balconies, two and a half marble bathrooms, two bedrooms, a dining room, walk-in closet, free Wi-Fi, daily canapés, an iPad and iPhone dock, espresso maker, and cashmere blankets. Along with the 24-hour room service, travelers staying in these rooms receive free pre- and post-cruise landing programs, flights, and priority shore excursion reservations.
Dining options span casual to sophisticated and elegant:
Compass Rose: This is the Seven Seas Mariner’s main restaurant. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served here, with European-inspired, vegetarian, and Canyon Ranch Spa Club menus. A standard continental meal is served in a refined atmosphere.
Coffee Convection: Stop by for breakfast and lunch or a pastry and coffee drink at any time during the day.
La Veranda: For breakfast and lunch, this restaurant focuses on various regional specialties, with all dishes presented through a buffet and authentic pizzeria. In the evenings, Regent transforms it into Sette Mari, a casual eatery emphasizing antipasto and other Italian specialties, all paired with wines.
Prime 7: Regent’s steakhouse serves up traditional fare in an atmosphere of comfortable leather chairs and wood décor.
Signatures: French cuisine is beautifully presented and paired with wines. As it is Regent’s most exclusive option for dinner, travelers must make reservations.
Part of taking a cruise is relaxing, and Regent presents the perfect opportunity with the Canyon Ranch Spa Club. Part of the 30-year-old wellness center’s line of facilities, it offers professional-quality, rejuvenating treatments for the whole body. Feel your best by scheduling a massage, acupuncture, body wrap, or body scrub.
Many also look to stay active – particularly on weeks-long cruise trips. You’ll have an opportunity in the fitness center. There, facilities are open for yoga and pilates classes, to lift weights, or to go for a jog around an outdoor track.
Once you’re done, cool off and enjoy the surroundings inside the pool, which is surrounded by one of the most expansive decks at sea. Others prefer to wind down by shopping in the duty-free boutique or reading in the library.
By the evening, there are even more choices on board. Play it intimate by socializing with your fellow travelers in the many bars and lounges, where you’ll find drinks, high-quality cigars, or live music from Regent’s resident musicians. Or strive for the peak of excitement by testing out your good hand in the casino.
The Seven Seas Mariner further features a grand theater. Each night, you’ll have the opportunity to catch a musical or cabaret show.
