The luxury cruise line Regent Seven Seas Cruises is to spend $125 Million on upgrading three ships in the fleet. The ships to be refurbished are Seven Seas Navigator in Spring 2016, Seven Seas Voyager at end of 2016 and Seven Seas Mariner in Spring 2017.

The major upgrades will take place over 2 years and will bring many new enhancements.  Seven Seas Navigator will emerge essentially a brand new ship following the upcoming dry dock, with all suite categories, all lounges, the library, casino, boutiques and reception area. The other ship will be re-freshed in the same way.

Jason Montague, president and chief operating officer for Regent Seven Seas Cruises said:

Seven Seas Navigator is one of our most beloved ships, so it’s fitting that she is the first to undergo this extraordinary refurbishment. These renovations will bring a new level of elegance to the Regent Seven Seas Cruises fleet, strengthening our position as the undisputed leader in luxury cruising, operating the most luxurious ships at sea.”

The refurbishment on Seven Seas Navigator comprise the first phase of the $125 million renovation project. The ship’s renovations will commence when it enters the dry dock in Marseille, France on March 31. The project will be completed by April 13, when the ship embarks on the 10-night Flawless French Riviera voyage from Barcelona to Rome, with calls across Spain, France, Monaco and Italy.

Following the dry dock, Seven Seas Navigator will spend the summer traversing the Mediterranean and late fall in South Africa. In 2017, Seven Seas Navigator will offer Navigate the World, Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ first world cruise in six years. Beginning and ending in Miami, the cruise will circumnavigate the globe in 128 nights, calling on six continents, 31 countries, 62 distinct ports and exploring 29 UNESCO World Heritage sites.
