Regent's New Fleet Upgrades

Regent Seven Seas Cruises has announced additional upgrades as part of its multi-million dollar, fleet-wide Seven Seas Signature initiative.

The first phase of the programme, completed last year, featured a $100million enhancement of all three vessels. Almost every area of the ships was refurbished, with public rooms being substantially redesigned by the renowned architectural firm of Yran & Storbraaten of Oslo, Norway. The updates resulted in a new look that is fresh, elegant and luxurious yet retains the warmth and charm for which Regent is rightly lauded.

Last October, the company added to this luxury refresher approach when ‘Coffee Connection’ was added to all ships for refreshing drinks and pastries, and exclusive Suite Slumber Beds were added to all suites. In addition, L’Occitane® bath amenities and Herm├Ęs amenities are now featured in Penthouse suites and higher (above).

The third phase of the Seven Seas Signature programme includes the renovation of select public rooms and suites and equipping Penthouse and higher-category suites with iPads. Beginning with the 2012 summer season, guests in concierge-level suites and higher will enjoy a range of benefits, from priority online shore excursion and restaurant reservations to upgrades and complimentary amenities.

Enhancing the culinary experience, menus in the Compass Rose and La Veranda restaurants will be expanded with a greater emphasis placed on showcasing specialties from the regions visited.

Regent president Mark Conroy explained: “We are pleased to continue enriching guests’ experiences with the third phase of our Seven Seas Signature initiative. This is an ongoing plan to elevate our ultra-luxury brand and long-term value proposition. More updates and enhancements will be announced in 2012.”

Regent is widely recognised - including by us at World of Cruising magazine - as the world’s most inclusive ultra-luxury cruise line, with prices inclusive of flights, unlimited shore excursions, fine dining, premium spirits and fine wines, gratuities and taxes, as well as all-suite accommodations and live entertainment.
