Accommodations

Looking to splurge? Check yourself into the absolute best room type on board—the gigantic 3,875sqft Regent Suite, which comes with a private driver and personal guide in each port. The two-bedroom suite has not one but 2.5 marble bathrooms, a golden chandelier, and a Steinway piano for when that classical music inspiration hits.

Not stopping there, the suite also comes with a personal butler and features a wraparound balcony and spa fitted with a sauna, steam room and hot tub.

Guests will love the spectacular 270-degree views from the outdoor, glass-enclosed Vista Garden sitting area. The largest verandas on any cruise liner also grace all of the Seven Seas Explorer’s other suites, each of which comes with sumptuous interior design and winning attention to detail.

Dining and spa

Standout restaurants onboard include Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ signature steakhouse, Prime 7, with its romantic, sophisticated ambience; the main dining room, Compass Rose, which has a fresh, contemporary grotto-like feel; and the Italian Riviera-inspired indoor and al fresco venue, La Veranda, for casual dining during the day and fine dining in the evening.

Guests can also spend time on board mastering the secrets of fine cuisine at the Seven Seas Explorer’s Culinary Arts Kitchen. With a host of different courses featuring hands-on instruction, the gleaming, 18-workstation kitchen is similar to being in a high-end culinary school.

Tired from all the gourmet treats? Pamper yourself on the Seven Seas Explorer's indulgent Canyon Ranch SpaClub. Its range of treatments includes massages, facials, therapeutic bodywork, and aromatherapy, ayurvedic and seaweed treatments.

Destinations

Seven Seas Explorer cruises around a range of beautiful and historic locations in both the Mediterranean and northern Europe, including maiden calls during 2018 at Portimão, Portugal; Lysekil, Sweden; and Bodo and Haugesund, Norway.

Destinations set on the enticing coastlines of the continent’s sunny south include the vibrant Spanish cultural and economic powerhouse of Barcelona, the spectacularly located billionaire’s hub of Monte Carlo, the graceful ancient city of Rome, the charming, friendly Portuguese capital Lisbon and, of course, unique, dazzling Venice.

Cruises to and from cosmopolitan London link up with both the Mediterranean and climes further north: the beautiful cities of Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm, their neat, orderly charm contrasting with the wild, sublime Scandinavian scenery that surrounds them.

Seven Seas Splendor

Always ahead of the curve, Regent Seven Seas Cruises will take its leadership in the luxury cruise market to another level during the first quarter of 2020 with the launch of its second Explorer-class ship, the Seven Seas Splendor.

The fifth ship in its fleet, with a gross tonnage of 55,254, the sister ship to the Seven Seas Explorer will also be an all-suite, all-balcony vessel able to welcome 750 guests on board.
