Culinary Arts Kitchen & Meridian Lounge aboard Seven Seas Explorer

Regent Seven Seas Cruises is adding two new exclusive venues to the world’s most luxurious cruise ship, Seven Seas Explorer®: the Culinary Arts Kitchen and the Meridian Lounge.

Culinary Arts Kitchen

Elevating cuisine to an art form, the Culinary Arts Kitchen will provide guests with all the ingredients needed to expand their culinary skills in a welcoming environment reminiscent of the most prestigious cooking schools in France in both layout and design. Eighteen individual cooking stations sit atop three long curved rows with white quartzite countertops and stainless steel accents, belaying the complex and richly flavored foods guests will prepare during the classes.

Guests attending classes in the Culinary Arts Kitchen will receive highly-individualized instruction, as each student will cook from their own personal workstation for authentic, hands-on training. The culinary workstations are fully equipped with top-of-the-line induction cooktops, stainless steel sinks and a comprehensive collection of additional cooking essentials.

A decorative motif filled with abstract images of essential culinary ingredients and French-inspired recipes highlight an accent wall near the entrance of the Culinary Arts Kitchen. The state-of-the-art culinary center also features floor-to-ceiling windows. With its perch on Deck 11, the magnificent ocean vistas will perfectly complement the epicurean delights being prepared within the center.

The instruction at the Culinary Arts Kitchen will cover a wide array of topics including healthy cooking, fish and shellfish preparation, perfect food and wine pairings for entertaining, delectable mini-desserts, high-heat grilling, and classes inspired by the destinations visited by the ship.

The Culinary Arts Kitchen will debut on Seven Seas Explorer® with more than a dozen unique classes.

Meridian Lounge

On the port side of deck five, guests will discover a new elegant entertainment venue called the Meridian Lounge. The lounge is inviting with elegant taupe leather furnishings and dark wood accent tables sitting atop soothing blue carpet. Polished antique brown granite flooring surrounds a curved bar with an antique silver finish and back-lit alabaster top, while across the room a rosewood parquet dance floor leads to an intimate stage that will host live musical performances.

Steps away from the entrance to the Constellation Theater, the Meridian Lounge is the ideal location to enjoy pre- or post-show cocktail, or simply savor a libation while peering out the floor-to-ceiling windows, soaking in the breathtaking views over the horizon.

    We hope that Explorer will serve the Middle East/Asia area. A cruise from Dubai to Hongkong would be of great interest to us – this would be a third cruise for us on Regent.

    Thank you.

    Recently was on an Oceania cruise with a first class culinary center and wonderful chef. Went to two classes as a couple and both were one of the highlights of the trip. Regent is very smart to include this on the Explorer. Highly recommend taking a class,.
