This past June, I had the pleasure of travelling aboard Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ all-suite, all-balcony luxurious Seven Seas Voyager. I have to say, the worst part about Regent is that you eventually have to get off the ship and go home.
Seven Seas Voyager Suite – I was in a deluxe balcony suite category D #935 mid-ship. These suites are quite comfortable with 356 square feet of living space, including the balcony. The suite was decorated in beautiful tans with hints of a soft-minty green incorporated throughout. Everything was very clean, not a single spot or smudge of anything. The bathroom was also sparkling clean, the tub was large and hot water was always quickly hot.
Canyon Ranch SpaClub® – As I entered the spa a very sweet girl came out, introduced herself and offered us a tour! The spa was absolutely beautiful, clean, and offered all the essential treatments of a Canyon Ranch spa. I didn’t use their services, but I did enjoy the sauna and steam room – my favorite! The restroom area was equipped with a water cooler, clean towels, robes and slippers, showers, shampoo/conditioners, razors, shaving cream, shower caps and bags for your clothing – there wasn’t a creature comfort missing!
Prime 7– Amazingly delicious! The best crab cakes, steak, lobster, crab, veggies and AMAZING desserts. I was in seventh heaven here – our steaks were always cooked to perfection exactly the way we ordered them. The service was wonderful, a young, handsome Irishmen was the Maitre d’ who made sure everyone was taken care of. We were able to dine here twice, it was a popular spot and hard to get a reservation, however you can be waitlisted for Prime 7 and Signatures. Prime 7 does have the same menu every evening.
Signatures– boast a beautiful décor and excellent service as well. The menu highlighted haute French cuisine. It seemed many people onboard enjoyed this venue. Our favorite waiter worked in this dining room, a nice gentleman with lots of stories. The menu did change once during the cruise.
Compass Rose – This is the main dining room for breakfast, lunch and dinner and it offered a good variety of food. We dined mainly as a table for two, without any problems reserving this table size. The service was as usual, great, there were only a few times where they were very busy and and we had to wait, but it was not long and not a problem at all. The new red/cream velvet chairs are very comfortable and elegant.
Spotlight on Music Theme – We were lucky enough to experience one of Regent’s themed voyages or “Spotlight Cruises”. In addition to the Regent Orchestra, they had a Norwegian Music Festival with a cellist, three violins, a pianist and a French horn player– they were all absolutely amazing, what a treat. Every guest felt like they were invited to an exclusive, intimate showing for these young-talented Julliard graduates. We couldn’t wait for the next performance. When you see Regent Seven Seas Spotlight Cruises, know that you are in for a special treat.
Complimentary Shore Tours– The inclusive tours were very popular with everyone. You do need to sign up for the tours online in advance of your cruise; it was very easy to do – if you need help your Cruise Consultant can assist you. Once onboard the process is so easy, the daily planner gives you a specific meeting time in the Constellation Theater. At the meeting location you are given a ticket with a number on it. Your number would get called and away you would go. The guides were for the most part knowledgeable and sociable; plenty of history was given on the destination, most of the tours were scheduled around onboard meal times so everyone would have the opportunity to tour and dine onboard.
Overall everything was truly wonderful; the staff was always smiling, the rooms are absolutely perfect, the décor aboard Seven Seas Voyager is elegantly appointed throughout the entire ship from carpet to paintings. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
