The Art of Luxury Showcased in Brand New Designs
For new ship Seven Seas Grandeur, the award-winning Studio DADO - specialists in boutique cruising and hospitality interior design - were engaged by Regent Seven Seas Cruises to reimagine the distinct level of luxury found on board The World’s Most Luxurious Fleet™. Inspired by close to 30 years of unrivalled experiences, the new designs illustrate how the partnership has taken modern luxury cruising to new aesthetic heights, from all-suite, all-balcony accommodations to transformative dining experiences.
“A canvas such as Seven Seas Grandeur is a designer’s dream,” said Yohandel Ruiz, founding partner, Studio DADO. “The level of luxury needed requires us to consider and perfect every single detail that the discerning Regent guest will experience. Not only is the functionality of each individual space of the highest importance, whether it’s indulging in a gourmet meal or reclining on a plush mattress for a restorative sleep following a day of exploring, but the finest of materials must work in perfect harmony too, from textures to color tones. It’s a challenge to relish.”
The Regent Suite An evolution of luxury, every element of the Regent Suite has been treated as a piece of art, from the highest quality textiles to hand-selected furnishings. New for the Regent Suite is a skylit, glass-enclosed parlour adorned with two chaise lounges allowing for afternoon daydreaming or nighttime stargazing.
The 4,443 square foot suite, which overlooks the bow of the ship, modernizes the traditional, offering pure luxury in the form of two spacious bedrooms, 2 and a half marble and stone detailed bathrooms, a living room with personalized bar set-up and a dining room.
A private in-suite spa - with unlimited complementary treatments, sauna, steam room, and jetted bathtub - caps off a truly indulgent hideaway.

With the already revealed, reimagined design of Compass Rose, Regent signaled its intention that Seven Seas Grandeur will, very much in the tradition of the cruise line, continue to curate unforgettable dining experiences in a range of spectacular, yet intimate restaurants.
The new renderings unveiled for two more of its celebrated dining venues - the sublime Prime 7 steakhouse and decadent French Chartreuse - tell the story of the restaurants’ nostalgic design inspirations from 1925 Paris and the Art Deco movement, to the romance of turn of the century New York.
Observation Lounge - Expansive Elegance
From offering quiet alcove seating while watching a never-ending ocean sunset, to serving refreshing cocktails under an organic art nouveau inspired mesh crystal chandelier, no single public space encapsulates how Regent can provide for every mood and deliver bespoke unrivaled experiences quite like the new design of Seven Seas Grandeur’s Observation Lounge.
Seven Seas Grandeur’s Inaugural Sailings
Seven Seas Grandeur’s first sailing will be 25th November 2023, when she makes her way across the Atlantic on a 14-night cruise from Barcelona, Spain to Miami, Florida visiting, Seville (Cadiz), Spain; Funchal (Madeira), Portugal; and the pink sand beaches of Bermuda.
From Miami, the ship explores the Western Caribbean on a 7-night sailing which includes a stop at the cruise line’s private island, Harvest Caye, Belize. The festive period is then primarily spent exploring Central America which, following a transit of the Panama Canal, visits ports in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Mexico. The 16-night cruise ends in Los Angeles, California with Christmas Day spent in Cartagena, Colombia and New Year’s Day in Acapulco, Mexico.
On 8th January 2024, Seven Seas Grandeur enjoys 16 nights cruising her way back to Miami via Central America and the Panama Canal on a reverse of the prior voyage.
