In July, Regent Seven Seas Cruises christened the Seven Seas Explorer, the line’s first new vessel since 2003, billed as “the most luxurious ship ever built.” (Check out our report from the inaugural cruise here.) During the star-studded Christening ceremony, President Jason Montague announced a $125 million investment in Regent’s other ships, so that by spring 2017, Regent will operate “the world’s most luxurious fleet.” Indeed, this month the 700-passenger Regent Seven Seas Voyager will enter a dry dock for a major makeover.
As reported by USA Today, the 13-year old ship will be overhauled to reflect the ulta-luxe amenities of its newest sister ship. Chartreuse—the elegant French restaurant we experienced on the Explorer—will be added to the Voyager, and the other restaurants, and public areas, will be completely restyled. Three categories of suites will be redesigned; Penthouse, Concierge and Deluxe suites will get luxe new amenities. Next up will be the Seven Seas Mariner which will be upgraded in April 2017.
