Inside Look: Seven Seas Mariner More Resplendent Than Ever

In the final phase of our $125 million refurbishment program, we completed a bow-to-stern upgrade of Seven Seas Mariner, elevating the ship to the level of elegance set by Seven Seas Explorer® and providing a consistent look and feel to the entire fleet. Seven Seas Mariner completed a 20-day drydock at Chantier Naval de Marseille, and has re-emerged with dramatic new culinary experiences, elegant new suite designs, and completely renewed elegant guest spaces.

“I’m constantly amazed by the attention to detail that goes into our ships, and the newly refurbished Seven Seas Mariner is no different, from the luxurious décor down to the intricate design elements,” said President & Chief Executive Officer Jason Montague. “With the culmination of our fleet-wide refurbishment program, and with the construction of Seven Seas Splendor underway, we are perfecting luxury and indeed have the most luxurious fleet at sea.”

Offering an even more elevated dining experience, all restaurants on board Seven Seas Mariner received a stylish redesign with enhanced art and décor. The newly updated steakhouse on Seven Seas Mariner, Prime 7, is now unlike any other restaurant in our fleet, with unique, rectangular light fixtures that are reminiscent of a sculpture across the ceiling, and cream-colored, pillow-backed chairs contrasted by sapphire walls and wood finishes.

The flagship restaurant Compass Rose is completely re-imagined, with a popular menu offering guests an unprecedented level of personal customization and choice, as well as a stunning new look with grand crystal chandeliers, rich wooden accents and celestial blue furnishings.

Replacing Signatures is Chartreuse, already a guest favorite aboard Seven Seas Explorer and Seven Seas Voyager®. The restaurant boasts new furnishings, china, flooring and décor, along with a completely new menu that highlights modern French cuisine. Further enhancements were also made to La Veranda, allowing guests to indulge their palate while surrounded by a flawless ambiance.

Seven Seas Mariner’s pool deck also received a comprehensive redesign, with a new open layout and teak flooring throughout. The centerpiece is a new mosaic-tiled pool, featuring a broad ledge for lounging in shallow water and surrounded by plush, white daybeds. Guests can enjoy expanded lunch selections at the outdoor Pool Grill, including steaks, chops, salmon, chicken and sausage, all prepared to order from new infrared barbecue grills.

Inside, all public spaces received new carpeting, world-class art, furniture and décor, creating a new look throughout the ship. The Reception area, featuring new marble desks and original gold leaf accented artwork by Atlanta based artist Tom Swanston. The grand spiral staircase in the atrium is crowned by a new large-scale blown glass art installation designed by Canadian studio Tsunami Glass, creating a beautiful view as you descend the glass elevators.

The completely remodeled and relocated library exudes comfort with dark-wood bookshelves contrasted against cream furnishings, crowned by a glistening copper-adorned chandelier. With plenty of books to choose from and with doors that can provide a quiet retreat, guests will enjoy relaxing and enriching their minds in the new library.

The previous library space makes way for expanded seating at Coffee Connection, where guests have more space to enjoy delicious coffee drinks in a stylish new setting with leather furnishings in rich tones.  The internet café is now conveniently located at the back of Coffee Connection, allowing guests the ability to stay connected with friends and family back home with free unlimited internet access.

Outside on deck 6, there is all new teak decking and new sun loungers, allowing guests to comfortably relax in peace and enjoy the ocean breeze and soak in a sunrise or sunset

Guests will also take comfort in the latest luxury styles in the Card RoomBoutiques, and The Casino, all completely revamped from the steel up. Guests will be able to enjoy some of their favorite experiences on board in a completely new way.

Offering an expansive menu of invigorating and restorative rituals, the shipboard Canyon Ranch® Spa received a soothing new design, featuring pebble-stone tiles and light-wood accents in the treatment rooms. The adjoining fitness and aerobics center offers new state-of-the-art machines and equipment to help guests maintain healthier, active regimens while at sea.

Leaving no detail untouched, we redesigned all guest suites. The elegantly appointed retreats feature new Elite Slumber™ Beds framed by plush, padded leather headboards, sitting areas furnished with comfortable sofas, accent tables and new artwork, as well as private balconies where guests can enjoy breathtaking views of the crystal blue sea and passing landscape. All suites feature walk-in closets and over-sized, marble-accented bathrooms with L’Occitane® amenities. Plus, guests of Penthouse Suites enjoy additional in-suite bath amenities by Guerlain, and Distinctive Suite guests also receive Bottega Veneta.

With her renovations complete, Seven Seas Mariner is re-positioning to the Pacific Northwest to take travelers on 15 unforgettable seven, 10- and 11-night immersive Alaska itineraries, which alternate departures from Vancouver and Seward. With free unlimited shore excursions and free airfare included as part of the cruise fare, our all-inclusive experience delivers the best value in America’s Last Frontier.

  3. John Licharson says:

    A beautiful ship, and we do love it.
    BUT what is the wifi like?
    On our last voyage, this January 2018, the wifi was free but so limited that it was next to useless for anything beyond getting very slow and small email.
    That was so frustrating that, if it has not been improved significantly, we are likely to have had our last voyage on the Mariner.

  4. Martha Folsom says:

    Sailed on the Mariner last year. Would love to see the “new” ship!

  5. Julie Walker says:

    We are both looking forward to our trip with you. We are booked on September 2/2018 and the ship looks beautiful. It is the first time that we’ve been with Regent.

    We’re about to enjoy the new SS Mariner April 18th in a Grand Suite. We sailed 5 months ago on the SS Explorer in a Grand Suite. Looking forward to see how they compare. Looking forward to another few weeks of great rest, relaxing, super food and great service.

    We are sailing with Explorer next week and getting mixed messages about cost of WiFi. Disappointed with Regent lack of assistance

  11. Traveled up the Amazon last year so really looking forward to seeing changes this year.In June going on Alaska cruise

  12. Henry Greenleaf says:

    We love the Mariner but agree with John Licharson comment above that the wifi amenity is inadequate. The January 20, 2019 cruise with be our fifth on Mariner.

  13. Len Bunton says:

    Just got home from 8 days on Explorer which is fabulous. We are on Mariner on 22 September from SF to Miami and can’t wait. The WiFi issues were sorted and the problem was the reading material about free WiFi and it was all fine on our cruise.

  14. Ira Stein says:

    We LOVED the Explorer. Cannot wait to do the Panama Canal on the Mariner in September.
