Seven Seas Navigator Overview

By Carolyn Spencer Brown, Editor in Chief
Editor Rating
5.0

These days, the 33,000-ton, 490-passenger Seven Seas Navigator feels so elegant and contemporary that it's hard to imagine the all-suite vessel once was a Soviet research ship before it was purchased by Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

A major refurbishment in spring 2016 is to be thanked for keeping the ship in top form. Highlights of the revamp include a brand-new library, complete with faux fireplace; a brand-new Compass Rose, the ship's main dining venue; and the transformation of La Veranda, the top-of-ship casual restaurant. The brand-new Coffee Connection is a casual spot by day and, given its location across the hallway from the ship's piano bar, a relaxed place for cocktails at night.

Seven Seas Navigator has spacious suite accommodations (301 to 1,173 square feet), and all of Navigator's 245 oceanview suites, 90 percent of which have private balconies, were transformed with new furnishings and artwork in the 2016 refurb. Beds were replaced with Regent's Elite Collection mattress and linens combination.

The ship also has a generous space-per-passenger ratio (67.3 feet of public space per guest), and the small number of passengers compared to the amount of public space typically makes for a very quiet cruise experience. A Navigator cruise is very personal, as well, with a majority of the staff (at every level) quickly learning your name and preferences.

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).

Seven Seas Navigator Gratuity

The Navigator has a no-tipping policy. All gratuities are included in the cruise fare.

We have been fortunate to experience over 30 cruises but never with Regent. Our primary motivation for booking this cruise was to make a comparison with our favourite line Seabourn. This is our analysis for what it is worth. The classiest: ... Read more
Sailed with Regent a few years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. This package had two nights in Verona and a visit to the Opera which was magnificent. The Regent rep in Verona was first class and so helpful. She recommended a really good place to ... Read more
Where to start? We just returned from our third Navigator cruise last night. I'll admit that I have a bit of a soft spot for this ship, as this was our first cruise ship we ever booked back in 2009. We were anxious to see her after her recent ... Read more
