Newly Refurbished Seven Seas Mariner Sets Sail Completes Regent Seven Seas Cruises Fleet-Wide Makeover
Miami, April 8, 2014 – Regent Seven Seas Cruises completed a multi-million dollar refurbishment and upgrade to the all-suite,
all-balcony ship Seven Seas Mariner®. The ship
re-entered service yesterday and is in the midst of a 10-night sailing from Monte Carlo to Venice. The newly renovated
Seven Seas Mariner® will call the
Mediterranean home for the remainder of the season.
The refurbishment of Seven Seas Mariner® added a fresh, elegant and luxurious new look,
while retaining the warmth and charm for which Regent Seven Seas Cruises is acclaimed. The ship's suites and lounges are resplendent with elegant new furnishings,
rich upholstery, custom-milled carpeting and hand-selected accents. Seven Seas Voyager® recently underwent a similar refurbishment
and Seven Seas Navigator® was similarly upgraded in 2012.
"Regent Seven Seas Cruises sets the benchmark for luxury in the cruise industry and after witnessing the transformation on
Seven Seas Mariner® it's clear we once again raised the bar. She is simply breathtaking," said Kunal S. Kamlani, president of Regent Seven
Seas Cruises. "This investment in our fleet underscores our commitment to providing our guests with the ultimate, ultra-inclusive
experience on the most luxurious and stylish ships," he added.
Highlights of the Seven Seas Mariner® transformation include:
- The ship's Grand, Master, Mariner, Seven Seas, Horizons and Penthouse Suites received all-new furniture, upholstery,
lighting and wall coverings. Each features sophisticated, timeless décor with new sofas and chairs, new dining tables,
new lamps and accent lighting that exudes Park Avenue elegance. Rich, luxurious fabrics were chosen to give each category
of suites their own unique look and character. Soft tones of mint green, dove grey, fawn and wheat will play off of a
palette of rich, dominant hues of espresso, chocolate, gold, burgundy and silver.
- The ship's two-deck high, state-of-the-art show theatre was renovated with a new LED wall to enhance the on-stage productions,
and new carpeting, upholstery, wall coverings, cocktail tables, wall sconces, banquettes and chairs to provide additional comfort
for our guests. Inside the theater, Regent Seven Seas Cruises mounts its largest and most ambitious production to date.
Titled "Cirque Rock 'n Roll" this stunning spectacle is filled with aerial theatrics choreographed to music from Michael Jackson,
Pink, Queen and more.
- The Stars Lounge features a dramatic new décor and ambiance. A new stone-topped bar anchors the room and the décor of plum,
smoky-grey, gold, black and cream creates a subdued yet elegant atmosphere. Rich woolen carpets, supple leather, dark hardwood
paneling and hammered-copper accents create an air of distinction, taste and elegance.
- The Horizon Lounge received a distinctive new stone-fronted bar, chic new furnishings, tony carpeting, lustrous wall coverings,
and new lighting. While the Mariner Lounge was reconfigured with a spacious "open" floor plan and features a new bar, new stone

the room's centerpiece which offers sweeping 270 degree views.
- The Canyon Ranch Spa received new steam rooms, new stone flooring in the reception area, refurbished changing rooms and the
Fitness Center was equipped with brand new state-of-the-art exercise equipment.
- The exterior decks and al fresco lounges received a makeover as well. New teak was installed on the balconies of all 350
suites and the teak decking in common areas was resurfaced and refinished to brand-new condition. The Pool Deck, as well as the
ship's outdoor relaxation areas were furnished with brand new resort-style sofas, chairs, and loungers. The Pool Grill and
