Seven Seas Voyager Emerges from Luxurious Renovation

Seven Seas Voyager’s bow-to-stern refurbishment has been complete, giving her a luxurious new décor and a new collection of spectacular production shows for the Constellation Theater.  Seven Seas Voyager underwent an extensive, 25-day refurbishment as part of our $125 million fleet-wide refurbishment program, and is now underway on a 23-night Barcelona to Dubai voyage that departed on Nov. 9.  She now boasts the same elegant style and indisputable attention to detail famously featured on Seven Seas Explorer, providing all of our ships with a consistent look-and-feel.

Seven Seas Voyager joins Seven Seas Navigator as the second ship to receive this stylish new update to the public spaces and suites onboard.  In addition to the elegant new décor, the ship will debut five new production shows in the Constellation Theater.

While the shipboard enhancements extend from bow-to-stern, some of the more notable renovations include:

  • Penthouse, Concierge and Deluxe Suites: The largest collection of suites onboard the ship received a contemporary design that helps accentuate the spaciousness of the suites.
  • Compass Rose: The ship’s flagship restaurant received a stunning new look with grand crystal chandeliers, rich wooden accents and celestial blue furnishings. The restaurant features a completely new menu that offers guests an unprecedented level of personal customization and choice, making it essentially the largest specialty restaurant at sea.
  • Chartreuse: Already a guest favorite on Seven Seas Explorer, Chartreuse made its debut on Seven Seas Voyager as part of the ship’s refurbishment.  The restaurant features new furnishings, china, flooring and décor elements inspired by the Chartreuse on Seven Seas Explorer, along with a completely new menu.
  • La Veranda: La Veranda will feature a fresh and airy design with light grey colored flooring and accent walls which accentuate the natural light coming from the restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling windows. In a major structural change, the buffet is now open to both sides of the restaurant and features a new cook-to-order grill station.
  • Pool Grill: The outdoor eating area offers a new infrared barbeque grill, so chefs can prepare savory barbeque specialties such as steaks, chops, lamb and salmon on the open deck.
  • Voyager Lounge: The marquee lounge features a beautiful new design that was inspired by a modern interpretation of a French cabaret.  A timelessly elegant décor with large champagne-colored chandeliers cascading down over crimson colored loveseats along a wall of oversized windows provides guests with the perfect locale to enjoy live nightly musical entertainment.

Areas also touched during the refurbishment of Seven Seas Voyager include the Reception Area, Coffee Connection, Connoisseur Lounge, Card Room, boutiques, casino and the Canyon Ranch SpaClub.   In addition to the physical enhancements, the ship comes out of dry dock with five new astonishing production shows.

  • Tuxedo: Highlighted by a live orchestra, Tuxedo presents a fresh take on the music of the Rat Pack, Tony Bennett, Natalie Cole and  Frank Sinatra while also showcasing dynamic arrangements of classic songs by contemporary artists like Michael Bublé, Christina Aguilera, Brian Setzer and Harry Connick Jr.
  • Lights, Camera, Music!: This elegant tribute to Hollywood musicals showcases cinematic classics songs from the past three-quarters of a century.
  • Broadway in Concert: The talented cast of Seven Seas Voyager will take guests on a journey through Broadway past and present with songs from Guys and Dolls, Annie Get Your Gun, Cabaret, Les Miserable and many more.
  • Vegas The Show:  This show recreates some of the greatest moments in the history of Sin City, and the exciting entertainers who have made Vegas one of the entertainment capitals of the world.  Guests will enjoy music from The Rat Pack, Elvis, Sonny and Cher, and Tina Turner.
  • Dancin’ Fool: An extraordinary evening of music and dance led by the Seven Seas Voyager cast that ranges from jive, salsa, quick step, disco and Broadway-style Fosse.

    I am pleased to hear of the renovations to this ship. However I still have NOT receive satisfactory compensation ( or indeed a reply) to our 21 day Panama Canal disastrous trip in September 2015 where the engine noise & vibrations were so loud & strong none of our party of 8 could get a decent night’s sleep. No amount of advertising can erase those horrific memories!
    We were not the only people who have unresolved issues. I would welcomed a person with responsibility for RSSC customer satisfaction to contact me

    Reblogged this on Travels with Diane and commented:
    Regent is on a whole other level from other cruises. I hope to cruise with them someday!

  3. Elissa Norwood says:

    The voyager was an absolutely phenomenal ship I can’t imagine how it could be any better. Regent cruises are totally awesome

  4. Parker says:

    We did the maiden explorer voyage and enjoyed the ship but thought the shows were underwhelming and smaller in scale than we’ve been used to on the Voyager in the past

    Will there be good opportunities for couples to ballroom dance?

  6. Sharon Dry says:

    Sounds wonderful! So glad we are booked for the upcoming Dubai to Singapore cruise.

  7. Sherrill Boone says:

    The changes are fabulous. We are looking forward to cruising on the Voyager again. I am sorry to see all of the new productions featuring the Frank Sinatra era. My husband & I have cruised for over 30 years and were enjoying recent productions with more modern music. Hopefully future productions will have more of a mix of more popular music to encourage younger cruisers to join the Regent family.

    It is wonderful that you have refurbished the physical ship,but what are you doing about the staff?
    The last cruise we had on Voyager was very disappointing from the standpoint of the staff caring for our cabin.
    We had two young men who were less than satisfactory,caring for our cabin.
    There was an additional attitude by the remaining staff, that left the impression of “not having the time for us”.
    My wife was reluctant to write about these problem for fear of these personnel losing their jobs.
    That cruise made the decision for us to NEVER cruise on Voyager again!
    We have sailed on all your other ships, and Voyager was an unsatisfactory experience due to the staff.
    We are currently booked on a cruise aboard this coming March 2017 aboard Explorer, and hope you have fixed your staff and their attitude on Explorer.

    Look forward to the great sounding new production shows. I will be aboard the Explorer next June.

  10. Jean Perlmutter says:

    Having recently sailed on the Explorer we are extremely pleased to see the new line up in the theater. These shows seem to reflect more of what I would expect for this sophisticated crowd. The shows on the Explorer were the only negative we had for that ship. We are very much looking forward to our cruise on the Voyager this February in Asia.

  11. Alan Ward says:

    First impressions the new look is a wonderful change just as expected from an excellent brand. Just keep doing right.

  12. Stanley Griffin says:

    One hope that the shows, which appear to be very similar to the dreadful collection we have had on Mariner, are a considerable mprovement. The shows now bear little resemblance to that which Regent used to have.

  13. Chris Stanley says:

    Voyager looks fantastic we can’t wait for our cruise in April !!

  14. Sylvia Rawlings says:

    Oh boy … I just can’t wait to board in Dubai. Thought Voyager fantastic before, BUT this all sounds just awesome!!!!

    She looks so much brighter compared to when we travelled on her 11 months ago, a refurb was definitely due as she was looking tired; however always immaculately clean. Now I cross fingers and hope no one makes a mess of our cabin before we join her again in Sydney in January (8 weeks to go, not that I’m counting!)

  16. J Hay says:

    Sailing in June on board Voyager – can’t wait. It looks so luxurious.

  17. Anneke says:

    We will see it the 22th of december when we sail from Singapore to Sydney

  18. Eddie Barnard says:

    Every time I have been on a Regent ship it has been wonderful. I cannot wait till March 17 to go on Explorer !!! If I had more money I would just book more cruises any money left after say 100 cruises I would just waste. Eddie Barnard for once I can also speak for my wife !!!

    The new Voyager sounds exciting. Was on it 2 years ago and staff seemed just fine. Maybe they are new to the ship life. Just returned from the inaugural crossing of the Atlantic on Explorer. What a magnificent vessel. Our concierge suite was spacious and airy. However, there was quite a bit of noise coming from above on deck 10 and we were opposite service areas but they have to be somewhere. The entertainers were a nice group of dedicated kids and the shows seem a better line up than the Voyager. I don’t know if they will always do it, but Explorer contracted with a number of on shore entertainers to come aboard for a couple of shows. Maybe this was due to cruise director John Barron. All the staff could not do enough to care for us.

  20. Helen Kam says:

    Again I sound like a whinger but I think NOT! Along with 12 others we have written numerous times to RSSC with legimate compliants.
    We had no complaints abt staff who were doing a fine job under very trying conditions especially with less than happy guests in the aft cabins. The refurb sounds wonderful but have RSSC resolved the engine’s vibration & noise issues specifically in the back of the boat?
    Sleep deprived guests are never going to be happy regardless of grand internal refurbishments or better shows.
    How about it RSSC ? I’m still awaiting a reply?
