For the first time since her 20-day bow-to-stern upgrade in 2018, Seven Seas Mariner will be returning to Asia-Pacific waters, boasting new culinary experiences, new suite designs and more.
From February to April 2019, the newly refurbished ship under Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings’ Regent Seven Seas brand will be taking travellers on four Asian itineraries, including Bangkok, Tokyo and Shanghai.
All restaurants have been stylishly redesigned with enhanced art and décor. Flagship restaurant Compass Rose offers not only a new level of customisation but also a new look with grand crystal chandeliers.
For pool lovers, the deck boasts a new open layout and a mosaic-tiled pool, featuring a broad ledge for lounging in shallow water and surrounded by 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.
The shipboard Canyon Ranch Spa now features pebble-stone tiles and light-wood accents in treatment rooms, while the adjoining fitness and aerobics centres offers new machines and equipment.
Inside, all public spaces boast new carpeting, art, furniture and new décor. The reception area features new marble desks and an 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.
All guest suites have also been redesigned, and now feature Elite Slumber beds, sitting areas with sofas, accent tables and new artwork; as well as private balconies.
