Grand crystal chandeliers add a touch of elegance to flagship restaurant, Compass Rose.
Regent Seven Seas Mariner is returning to Asia Pacific waters, after a 20-day upgrade in 2018, with new culinary experiences, suite designs and guest spaces. 

“I’m constantly amazed by the attention to detail that goes into our ships, and the newly refurbished Seven Seas Mariner is no different, from the luxurious décor down to the intricate design elements,” said Felix Chan, vice president of sales at Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings.  

All restaurants have been given a spruce-up, with enhanced art and décor. Compass Rose, the ship’s flagship restaurant, now features grand crystal chandeliers and offers new customisable menu options. 

Lounging by the pool is made more enjoyable with an open-plan deck, mosaic-tiled pool and plush, white daybeds. Guests can enjoy expanded lunch selections at the outdoor Pool Grill, all of which are prepared to order from new infrared barbeque grills. For spa and fitness lovers, they can work out on new state-of-the-art machines or relax in light-wood accented treatment rooms. 

In the suites, guests can look forward to Elite Slumber beds framed by plush, padded leather headboards, accent tables, new art work and sitting areas with comfortable sofas. 

Public spaces have also been revamped. In particularly, the grand spiral staircase in the atrium is now anchored by a full-sized blown glass art installation by Canadian studio Tsuami Glass. 

Travellers can experience the refreshed ship when they go on any of its four Asian itineraries, offered from February to April and ranging from 12 to 16 nights, which include visits to Kochi, Kagoshima, Kota Kinabalu, Brunei and more.
