Seven Seas Navigator Overview
The 33,000-ton, 490-passenger Seven Seas Navigator debuted in the fall of 1999. The all-suite vessel features 245 ocean-view suites, 90 percent of which have private balconies. The Navigator was once a Soviet research vessel, which the line purchased, stripped, and converted into a modern luxury cruise ship. It was the first all-suite ship for Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
Highlights of the Seven Seas Navigator experience include: spacious suite accommodations (301 to 1,173 square feet); luxurious in-suite amenities; impeccable service throughout; a generous space-per-passenger ratio (67.3 ft. of public space per guest); varied dining possibilities (including a steakhouse and Italian alternative dining options); an upscale Canyon Ranch SpaClub (formerly Carita Spa); and ten Internet-ready computers.
The Navigator experience is very personal for most passengers, with a majority of the staff (at every level) quickly learning your name and preferences. The small number of passengers compared to the amount of public space typically makes for a very quiet cruise experience.
Seven Seas Navigator Fellow Passengers
Typical Navigator passengers appear to be 40+, affluent and quite well traveled. There are many veteran RSSC cruisers aboard most sailings, and they can often be heard comparing notes on previous experiences with the line (as well as sailings with other upscale lines like Crystal).
Seven Seas Navigator Dress Code
The dress code is almost always elegant casual after 6 p.m. Skirts or slacks paired with blouses or sweaters, pant suits or dresses are acceptable for ladies, while men should wear slacks and collared shirts. Sport jackets are optional; jeans, T-shirts, baseball caps, shorts, sneakers and bathrobes are not allowed in any public area in the evening. In addition, cruises of 16 nights or longer will have two formal optional nights, when passengers can either wear elegant casual attire or opt for a more formal look (gowns, cocktail dresses, dark suits or tuxedos).
Complimentary self-service launderettes are available on four decks.
Seven Seas Navigator Gratuity
The Navigator has a no-tipping policy. All gratuities are included in the cruise fare.
This cruise through the Panama Canal was our third with Regent and second time on the Navigator. The first cruise to the eastern Caribbean on the Voyageur was wonderful. The excursions were excellent (in particular the catamaran at St. Barts). The ...continue
Another great Regent cruise!After a rocky embarkation due to computer issues, we boarded our lovely ship and started to relax. Unfortunately, some people never found their sea legs or sea brains. A large number of pushy, rude people seemed to ...continue
