Newly refurbished Seven Seas Navigator returns to local waters for her 2020 Australasian season
Regent Seven Seas Cruises, the leading luxury ocean cruise line, today welcomes Seven Seas Navigator to local waters following an extensive refurbishment last year. Visiting Brisbane as her first port-of-call, SS Navigator’s 2020 Australasian season features a variety of Asia Pacific itineraries visiting picturesque ports such as Sydney, Auckland, Komodo, Alotau and more.
Over the past four years, Regent Seven Seas Cruises has invested more than US$150 million to modernise its best-in-class fleet, with its four intimate vessels showcasing why Regent is the leader in luxury cruising, offering guests an unrivalled experience both at sea and ashore.
The new-look SS Navigator will be showcasing her revamped restaurants; a redesigned spa; remodelled lounges; fresh suite designs; new artwork; sleek carpeting, Italian marble floors and wallpaper; and a dramatic, elegant new ambience for all guest spaces.
“We are thrilled to have Seven Seas Navigator return to our waters following her stunning transformation. Her recent enhancements mark the completion of our US$150 million refurbishment program, with an ongoing investment in our fleet being one of many reasons why Regent Seven Seas Cruises is the world’s leading luxury ocean cruise line,” said Lisa Pile, Vice President and General Manager, Australia and New Zealand at Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
“Since launching our regional headquarters in 2015, we have been committed to strengthening our presence in local waters, showcasing to local travellers both the elevation of our fleet and our all-inclusive luxury offering. In addition to the arrival of Seven Seas Navigator, both Seven Seas Voyager and Seven Seas Mariner will be sailing local waters in early 2020, which is significant given Regent currently operates a fleet of four vessels. Having three of our luxury ships in the Asia Pacific region offers a great taste of what’s to come, with The Most Luxurious Ship Ever Built™, Seven Seas Explorer, sailing Asia Pacific itineraries for the first time ever at the end of this year,” added Ms Pile.
