Regent Seven Seas Cruises names its highly anticipated new ship the Seven Seas Grandeur, with the new vessel due to join the fleet in 2023.
Embodying a 30-year legacy of perfecting luxury travel, the sixth member of the Regent fleet will also boast a beautifully reimagined design of Compass Rose, the cruise line’s signature restaurant.
Seven Seas Grandeur will host just 750 guests and have a gross tonnage of 55,254, providing among the highest space ratios and staff to guest ratios in the industry. The new arrival will be the sister ship to Regent’s Seven Seas Explorer and Seven Seas Splendor.
Designed by the multi-award-winning Studio DADO, Seven Seas Grandeur’s elevation of luxury travel begins with the cruise line’s signature specialty restaurant Compass Rose, the menu of which allows guests to uniquely curate their own dining experience on every visit.
The captivating new design of Compass Rose starts outside the restaurant, with a delicate, cascading waterfall sculpture imbuing tranquility and fashioned with laser-cut metal and hand-blown glass. Once inside, guests will be greeted by a canopy of interwoven crystal and wood-edge illuminated trees arching overhead, giving the impression of dining in a beautiful and enchanted forest.
As the sun goes down and dinner is served, guests will be awe-struck by the floor-to-ceiling illumination of the thousands of individually placed crystal-faceted leaves which are encrusted on the kaleidoscope of pillars and branches enveloping the restaurant. A star-dusted view of the ocean is also provided by hundreds of twinkling lights surrounding the windows.
Adding to the atmospheric dining experience will be a custom-designed mural by Confluent Studios. Crafted with gold-leaf and Verre Eglomisé, the mural will depict the flora and fauna at the forest’s edge making the restaurant appear endless.
Providing more choice than cruise travelers will have experienced before, Compass Rose offers a tantalizing mix of new and familiar items on every visit. Guests are able to design their very own entrée from preferred sides, sauces, pasta, and main features such as Black Angus filet mignon, New Zealand lamb chops, Maine lobster tail, and king sea scallops. The restaurant also has daily changing specials, as well as a wide vegan and vegetarian menu
