Review of Seven Seas Mariner

Launched in 2001, Seven Seas Mariner is the second oldest of the Regent Seven Seas Cruises ships, together with the new Explorer (2016) and Splendor (2020) and the old Navigator and Voyager.

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 capacity up to 800 passengers. The fleet consists of 6-star rated all-suite and all-balcony vessels with space-to-guest ratio around 70 and staff-to-guest ratio 1-to-1,6 (some of industry's best). As building cost per berth, RSSC liners are among the world's most expensive ships.

Regent Seven Seas Mariner cruise ship

The 48,075-ton, 700-passenger cruise ship Seven Seas Mariner was the first 100% balcony 100% suite cruise ship in the world. In an era where cruise vessels and guests loads practically require their own zip codes, together came Regent Seven Seas Cruise Company with a completely retro concept: Build mid-size cruise liners with reduced guests loads to foster service which is attentive and gracious in an onboard environment that is open and large. And, though Seven Seas Mariner cruise ship debuted in 2001, it has been kept in perfect condition. Regent Cruise Company frequently pours lots of money into its vessels' upkeep; the refurbishment in January 2009, for example, saw the line spending over 20 million dollars.

Cruise itinerary program

Seven Seas Mariner itinerary program is based on luxury World Cruises visiting exotic ports in the regions of South Pacific, South America, South Africa (departing from Cape Town), and Caribbean (out of Miami). In the summer, Mariner cruises in Europe on Mediterranean itineraries from Rome, Venice, Barcelona, with Transatlantic repositioning crossings.

Cabins

Like all Regent cruise ships, Seven Seas Mariner is an all-suite ship. The number of suite categories is 14. Seven Seas Mariner has a total of 354 suites, of which 100% have private balconies. The largest ones are the Master Suites (1210 ft2).

Regent Mariner cruise deals offer all inclusive luxury prices – and some of the most expensive rates available on the top luxury cruise travel vacation market. The cost of Seven Seas Mariner cruise in a Master Suite accommodation provides the ultimate Regent Mariner luxury packages for one of the ship’s two best cruise accommodation (located on Deck 9), each of 1,200 sq-ft (111,5 m2, balcony included). The lowest suite category on the ship is the “Deluxe Suite” (about 3 times cheaper than the Master Suite’s fares).

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

Compass Rose restaurant is the main dining room on Seven Seas Mariner. It functions on an open seating basis and offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner without set dining assignments. La Veranda is ship's daytime buffet, serving breakfast and lunch. In the evening it is transformed into a bistro serving Mediterranean cuisine. The specialty steak house Prime 7 is free of charge but requires reservations for dinner. Dinner is served alfresco on Mariner's pool deck at least once during each cruise. Another choice for casual lunch is the poolside grill. Dinner can be ordered from the MDR menu during restaurant hours to be served en suite.

Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport

Seven Seas Mariner cruise ship is an ideal blend - both big enough to offer roomy, cruise-like facilities and little enough to feel comfortable at the same time. With a double-time-occupancy capacity of seven hundred passengers onboard, it sports an exclusive passenger-to-space ratio of 71.43 and a none-too-shabby passenger-to-crew ratio of 1.57. Тravelers do not have to hesitate, because even the bottommost accommodations are suites, and each cabin has its own veranda.

Seven Seas Mariner wiki

The Regent Mariner ship was built in St Nazaire France and is the line's second of all three vessels providing ultra-inclusive "big yacht" luxury cruise vacation experiences. Her fleetmates are the Regent ships Navigator,  Voyager and the new Explorer (2016).

Regent Mariner's itinerary calendar features a diverse set of sailing routes and destinations on 5 continents. The ship operates in In Europe (Mediterranean Sea), South Africa, around South America, in the South Pacific (including Australia, New Zealand and Tahiti).

Regent Seven Seas Navigator is among the top-luxury World Cruise ships offering each year an Around The World itinerary. It includes up to 30 different countries and numerous exotic ports of call in Asia, Aistralia, South America, Caribbean, Africa, also Transatlantic crossings, Panama Canal and/or Suez Canal transits.

On September 2, 2014, the NCL Norwegian company purchased the company "Prestige Cruise Holdings" (owner of Oceania Cruises and RSSC) for USD 3,025 billion, thus becoming the official owner of all vessels in both fleets.

On March 9, 2016, the RSSC company announced its fleet’s first female Captain – Serena Melani, commander of Seven Seas Mariner. She entered service on February 21, 2016. She was also the first female Captain in the combined NCLH fleet, that besides RSSC Regent also includes the brands Oceania and NCL Norwegian. Captain Melani (aged 42 at the time) was born in Tuscany Italy, graduated a nautical school and had previously worked on cargo ships (oil tankers, gas carriers and other vessels) before joining RSSC in 2010. For RSSC, she had previously worked as second officer, safety officer, staff (2nd) captain.

In mid April 2016, RSSC announced upgraded fares adding free international flights to all 2017-2018 cruise itineraries. These are round-trip air travel deals (business class) added to the company's signature (standard) all-inclusive package - wines, spirits, soda, water, unlimited internet, free shore excursions, prepaid gratuities, pre-post cruise hotel stays and transfers. The air-inclusive cruise deals involve international flights leaving from 26 cities (USA and Canada), regardless of the suite category booked.

The Apollo Group company provides all RSSC ships with the entire onboard hotel product and services. This includes administration, food staff (preparation and serving), housekeeping staff, also the vessel's provisioning and crewing. Other cruise lines served by Apollo are Thomson UK (Marella Cruises) and Oceania.
