Seven Seas Grandeur Review

Review of Seven Seas Grandeur

The 2023-built Seven Seas Grandeur cruise ship is currently on order (to be constructed by Fincantieri) and the newest of the RSSC's EXPLORER-class boats, sisterships Seven Seas Explorer (2016) and Seven Seas Splendor (2021). The vessel is currently planned for delivery and inauguration in 2023 November.

History - construction and ownership

Regent Cruises (officially Regent Seven Seas Cruises / RSSC) is an all-inclusive, top-luxury cruise brand fka "Radisson Seven Seas". Until 2014, the company (as part of "Prestige Cruise Holdings") was owned by Apollo Management LP - one of the world's largest private investment equity funds. Since September 2014, RSSC and the sister company Oceania Cruises are owned by NCL Norwegian (shipowner), acquired at the total cost of USD 3 billion. Regent cruise ships are medium-sized, with max passenger capacity 800. The fleet consists of 6-star rated all-suite and all-balcony vessels with a space-to-guest ratio ~70 and staff-to-guest ratio 1-to-1,6 (some of the industry's best). As building cost per berth, RSSC liners are among the world's most expensive ships.

For the vessel's interior design, RSSC contracted the Florida-based firm "Studio DADO". The DADO-designed venues include Observation Lounge, Constellation Theater, Card Room, Connoisseur Club, Pacific Rim Restaurant, ship's Spa as well as all the 55 suites (categories Penthouse, Grand, Superior).

Decks and Cabins

Like all RSSC-Regent ships, Seven Seas Grandeur staterooms (total 375) are all suites grouped in 15 categories. All cabins also have private step-out balconies. Cabins designer was Tillberg Design of Sweden.

The cost of the Regent Suite on the Grandeur ship signifies the ultimate RSSC luxury vacation package experience. The unique accommodation is sized 4445 ft2 (413 m2) including the outdoor wraparound terrace (1230 ft2 / 114 m2). Grandeur's Regent Suite is not only the largest at sea but also the most expensive - priced USD 11000 (~EUR 9340 / GBP 8050) per night. However, the price includes unlimited services (provided by dedicated staff) and amenities like Spa Room (unlimited massages and treatments), Sauna, Steam Room, 2x bedrooms, 2x full bathrooms (with jetted tubs), living room (with a garden, grand piano, half bathroom), dining room, dressing room, bow-facing balcony (with a Tresse Minipool and a glass-enclosed parlor).

The boat has 13 decks, of which 10 are passenger-accessible and 7 with cabins.

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

Regent's Grandeur ship offers cooking classes in fleet's first specially dedicated Culinary Arts Kitchen. The teaching kitchen offers dishes crafted with locally-sourced ingredients. Food-themed excursions ashore are available for booking via RSSC's Gourmet Explorer Tours. On these tours, passengers can enjoy gourmet food prepared by renowned local chefs, as well as wine tasting at premium estates and local food market visits.

Regent Seven Seas Grandeur cruise ship

Follows the complete list of Seven Seas Grandeur restaurants and food bars.

  • Compass Rose (main dining room restaurant, open-seating breakfast, lunch and dinner; features European Continental dishes and alternative choices - vegetarian, specialties from the Spa menu, select dishes from Regent's Chartreuse menu with gourmet French cuisine)
  • Chartreuse (Regent's new specialty restaurant with French cuisine, also serving premium cocktails with Chartreuse liqueur; offers one of the most exquisite gourmet experiences at sea)
  • Prime 7 (reservations-only dinner restaurant with American Steakhouse menu)
  • La Veranda / Sette Mari (casual dining venue; operates as ship's self-service buffet restaurant; in the evenings, the buffet transforms into "Sette Mari" Italian dinner restaurant, complimentary. The Destination Corner serves the local dishes of the destination.)
  • Culinary Arts Kitchen (cooking school with 18 cooking stations in 3 rows; each is equipped with quartz countertop and stainless steel sink; the cooking school has floor-ceiling windows, and boasts 12 different classes themed as fish and shellfish, food and wine, mini-desserts, healthy cooking, etc. As part of the program, Regent Seven Seas also offers "Gourmet Explorer Tours" ashore).
  • Pacific Rim (Pan-Asian restaurant, dinner-only, with an art installation of a large dragon)
  • Coffee Connection is an alfresco seating area.

The Compass Rose restaurant on Seven Seas Grandeur is redesigned by Studio DADO (2016-founded, Trapani Sicily-based interior design firm). Among the restaurant's features is the cascading waterfall sculpture (made of laser-cut metal and hand-blown glass), illuminated arching trees (wood-edged and made of interwoven crystal), floor-ceiling illumination during the night (hundreds of lights surround the floor-ceiling windows). The restaurant is also lighted by thousands of crystal-faceted leaves (encrusted on pillars and branches throughout). Also new is the mural (an artwork custom-designed by Confluent Studios Inc/Burnaby BC Canada) crafted with gold leaves and mirror-finished (Verre Eglomise process of gilding onto the glass' rear face).

 

Compass Rose's expanded menu includes dishes like Black Angus filet mignon, Maine Lobster Tail, King Scallops, New Zealand Lamb Chops, several daily changing specials, a wide selection of vegan and vegetarian items.

In June 2022, RSSC announced that on Seven Seas Grandeur in 2023 will be introduced a new Italian menu, later to be rolled out fleetwide. The new menu (developed for the Italian restaurant chain Sette Mari) includes items like Bruschetta al pomodoro (tomato), Cavatelli ai frutti di mare (filled pasta), Zucchini alla poverella, Insalata di Panzanella (bread salad) alla Masseria Salamina (17th-century castle in Fasano), Cozze gratinate al forno (stuffed mussels), Branzino in agrodolce (spigola in sweet-and-sour sauce), Pasticcini alla mandorle (Sicilian baked sweets), Chef Nino's Cioppino (fish stew), focaccia con pomodorini (Italian flat bread made with olive oil and flavoured with herbs).

Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport

While the design of Seven Seas Grandeur is decidedly more contemporary luxe than the fleet mates, RSSC strikes a balance between its much-loved traditional features and a more modern ambiance.

Seven Seas Grandeur Wiki

The shipowner NCLH (Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd) placed the order with the shipbuilder Fincantieri SpA on January 15, 2019. The shipbuilding order was signed by Frank Del Rio (NCLH's President and CEO) and Giuseppe Bono (Fincantieri's CEO).

For the newbuild project, NCLH obtained export credit financing (for 80% of the unit's contract price of EUR 475 million / USD 532 million). With the order for Seven Seas Grandeur in 2019, NCLH had 11 vessels (on order or under construction) with deliveries through 2027. Of those, 7x were for NCL-Norwegian Cruise Line, 2x for Oceania and 2x for RSSC-Regent.

Regent announced the name of its newest boat (Seven Seas Grandeur) on June 22, 2021. The name was revealed by Jason Montague (RSSC's President and CEO) in a video.

The vessel's construction officially started with the steel-cutting ceremony on November 2, 2021, held at Fincantieri's Ancona shipyard. The special event was attended by Jason Montague (RSSC's President and CEO) and Giovanni Stecconi (shipyard's Director). The vessel's physical construction started with the keel-laying ceremony, held on July 12, 2022. During the event, 3x custom-minted coins were placed onto the keel/first hull block, each representing one of the sisterships Grandeur (2023), Splendor (2021), Explorer (2016). The coins for Explorer and Splendor were delivered to Fincantieri's yards Sestri Ponente Genova (in 2016) and Ancona (in 2020), while Grandeur's coin is new and features RSSC’s 30th-anniversary logo.

The ship's namesake is the RCI's liner Grandeur of the Seas (1996).
