  3. Seven Seas Navigator
I visited the Navigator as a guest in Seattle, as was very impressed by the ships physical qualities as well as the wonderful canapes offered to guests. The ship itself bears a definite likeness to the Silversea ships, as might be expected, as she was built in the same Mariotti yards in Genoa. The ship is obviously a bit larger than the Silversea ships, and a little more dramatic in certain areas, especially the main centrum area with the glass elevators. Especially pleasant are the wide corridors which create a feeling of openness and light. The pool area is very nice and almost a larger carbon copy of the Silversea ships. A very nice touch are the teak table and chairs, which are absent on Silversea, and always lend a feeling of class and luxury. The alternate dining area, the Portofino Grill, is very nicely done, as is the main dining room. The dining room unfortunately is not 2 decks high as on the Diamond and the Gauguin, but one can't have everything. The decoration throughout the ship was very subdued and tasteful, although I found the Stars Lounge a bit severe. The showroom is beautiful, all seats seem good, and it is unique in the respect that it has no central aisle, entry is from the sides. All in all, a very pretty ship and a welcome addition, I think, to the ranks of luxury ships. I just have to wait until November to sail on her.
