The details keep coming on Regent Seven Seas Cruises' newest ship, the Seven Seas Explorer, which is set to launch in the summer of 2016. This time we can take a peek at the new pool and sports deck.
Drawing inspiration from high-end pool retreats at boutique hotels, with a fusion of Southeast Asian design elements and Caribbean accents, the Deck 11 oasis on Seven Seas Explorer is designed as an intimate setting for relaxing, swimming and enjoying the view. With rich teak, natural stone and marble, the geometrical design of the ship’s centerpiece pool is meant to evoke a modern feel.
The pool provides an area for swimming an a large, three-inch deep shallow section for guests looking to dip their toes. Paying homage to the ocean, sea-inspired ceramic tiles line the pool. At the end nearest the Pool Grill, shaded under contemporary circular overhangs, are two hot tubs.
Sheer curtains around the pool create private areas where guests can relax. The deck also has double loungers, some perched on raised platforms, and a center stage for poolside musical performances.
Adjacent to the pool area, guests can enjoy al fresco covered dining or grab a bite to go at the Pool Grill, which serves breakfast, lunch, snacks, sweets and drinks.
In the evening, an array of lighting effects help set the mood.
Sports and Sun-Deck
Deck 12 combines a dedicated sports area with a sun-deck. The sports area has a deck shuffleboard, putting greens, golf nets, bocce court, paddle tennis and jogging track. The sun-deck has circular loungers.
The maiden voyage for Seven Seas Explorer will be a 14-night sailing from Monte Carlo to Venice on July 20, 2016. The ship will remain in Europe for the majority of its inaugural season, sailing 11 voyages that crisscross the Mediterranean before making its North American debut in Miami in December.
