Seven Seas Mariner Set For April Refurbishment

Regent Seven Seas Cruises has confirmed details for the upcoming bow-to-stern refurbishment of Seven Seas Mariner, the world’s first all-suite, all-balcony cruise ship.

After a 20-day drydock in April at Chantier Naval de Marseille, Seven Seas Mariner will re-emerge with new culinary experiences, new suite designs and completely renewed modern guest spaces. After its drydock refurbishment, Mariner will reposition to the Pacific Northwest to take travellers on a fully immersive, luxury Alaska experience.

To celebrate Seven Seas Mariner’s refurbishment milestone, Regent is offering a three-category upgrade aboard the ship’s 10- and 11-night, 2018 Alaska itineraries for any new bookings made before March 31. Guests booking a Deluxe Veranda Suite will be upgraded to a Concierge Suite, and receive Concierge-level amenities, such as a free one-night, pre-cruise hotel package. Travel agents also receive a $250 gift card for every new booking on eligible voyages, departing May 6, June 20 and 30, Aug. 22, Sept. 2 and 12, or a $100 gift card for any new seven-night 2018 Alaska voyage booking.

The refurbished Seven Seas Mariner will sail the Last Frontier on 15 seven, 10- and 11-night itineraries, which alternate departures from Vancouver and Seward.

Seven Seas Mariner’s pool deck will receive the most 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. Guests can enjoy expanded lunch selections, including steaks, chops, salmon, chicken and sausage, offered a la minute from new infrared barbecue grills and new buffet bars at the Pool Grill.

The ship’s atrium, corridors and guest spaces will all receive new carpeting, art, furniture and décor. Guests will take comfort in the latest luxury styles in the reception area, Coffee Connection, Card Room, boutiques and the Casino, all completely revamped from the steel up. A remodeled Library will exude comfort with dark-wood bookshelves contrasted against cream furnishings, crowned by a copper-adorned chandelier. A cobalt-and-silver colour scheme will complete the country club ambiance in the Connoisseur Club cigar lounge.

Offering an expansive menu of invigorating and restorative rituals for Seven Seas Mariner guests, the shipboard Canyon Ranch SpaClub will receive a soothing new design, featuring pebble-stone tiles and light-wood accents in the treatment rooms. The adjoining fitness and aerobics center also will see new state-of-the-art machines and equipment to help guests maintain healthier, active regimens while at sea.
