Rarely has a ship been more anticipated than Seven Seas Explorer. Ultra-deluxe cruise line Regent billed the 750-passenger vessel ‘the most luxurious ship ever built’ and without doubt the christening ceremony by Princess Charlene of Monaco in July 2016 was a glittering occasion. It is a paragon for this cruise line whose mantra is ‘Everything Imaginable is Included’. The ship has one of the highest staff-to-guest ratios in cruising enabling the company to deliver the highly personalized service guests have come to expect from this company for whom mediocrity has no meaning.
All cabins are designated as suites and each is luxurious - even the entry-level Veranda Suites are 219 sq ft with 88 sq ft balconies. There are also 253 sq ft Deluxe Veranda Suites with balconies between 55 to 88 sq ft; and Superior Suites measuring 332 sq ft, with balconies at 83 sq ft; while Concierge Suites are identical except the balcony is larger at 132 sq ft. There are also vast Penthouse; Seven Seas; Explorer; Grand; Master and Regent Suites. All suites have Elite Slumber beds, stocked mini-bars, flat-screen televisions, plus marble and stone bathrooms with rainfall showers.
The Compass Rose Restaurant is arguably the most stunning room at sea. Tables seat just two or four, and passengers can dine where they want, when they want. In addition to the exhaustive nightly menus, a tasting menu is available and includes a perfectly portioned six-course feast. Other speciality dining options (all without surcharge) include the art nouveau Chartreuse which evokes the mood of a French brasserie; the elegant signature steakhouse Prime 7; Asian-inspired Pacific Rim – complete with Tibetan prayer wheel; and the more casual Sette Mari Italian trattoria. La Veranda is the ship's buffet serving breakfast and lunch and there’s also a superb Pool Grill for all-day comfort food as well as healthy options. White-gloved afternoon tea is served in the Observation Lounge.
Maintaining the epicurean theme, the Culinary Arts Kitchen offers an experience similar to that of a prestigious cooking school in France, with 18 individual cooking stations. The two-tiered Constellation Theatre is modelled after the golden age of Hollywood and stages shows such as the nostalgic ‘My Generation’ foot-tapping revue. The double-level pool deck is furnished with canopied bathing pods and voile privacy curtains.
Regent is the pacesetter in the concept of truly all-inclusive cruises lines with unlimited shore excursions in every port; fine wines and spirits; speciality restaurants; pre-paid gratuities; Wi-Fi; transfers between airport and ship; not to mention return flights and a one-night pre-cruise luxury hotel package. We truly believe this credo has a material value that’s beyond compare.
Intimate sitting area 1 or 1 1/2 marble and stone detailed bathrooms. Private balcony with a walk-in closet and a built-in safe.
