Guests staying in Regent Seven Seas’ top suites can enjoy an intimate and relatively unknown private dining experience at The Study.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises is renowned for providing its guests with enriching and luxurious journeys at sea. However, there is one experience that remains relatively unknown. Hidden between two speciality restaurants lies The Study, an exclusive private dining room only accessible to guests staying in the Regent Suite onboard Seven Seas Splendor and Seven Seas Explorer.
A Study in Luxury
When guests enter the room, which caters for up to 12 diners, they are met with the style and sophistication they would expect from a VIP experience onboard Regent. Adorning the walls of this marble-floored oasis are rare paintings and prints that form part of the luxury line’s multi-million-dollar art collection, coupled with a replica fireplace and multiple bookshelves lined with stunning artefacts. The centrepiece is a long, elegant table set with Bernardaud Or d’Azur china, Riedel glassware and opulent ivory linen.
Whether guests prefer a cocktail-style event or a fine dining experience, a dedicated butler will accommodate, matching service with menu selections from neighbouring Prime 7, serving classic steakhouse cuisine with a modern flair or Chartreuse, serving classic French fare with a twist.
For those who prefer to create their own personalised experience, guests of The Study can also request that any off-menu dishes are prepared by the culinary team. Savour a regional dish from one of the ports of call visited that day, such as Sicilian squid-ink pasta, or a traditional homecooked-style meal, like slow-roasted lamb with seasonal vegetables.
The Regent Suite
At the top of each of Regent’s newest ships, Seven Seas Splendor and Seven Seas Explorer, guests will find a 412 square-metre suite that truly rises above everything else on the seven seas.
Offering pure luxury, the Regent Suite is complete with an in-suite spa retreat featuring a personal sauna, steam room and treatment area with unlimited spa treatments, unobstructed 270-degree views over the ship’s bow from the up to 1,417 square-metre wraparound veranda, and a glass-enclosed solarium on top of the bridge
The interior décor of the suite features exotic woods, handcrafted furnishings, Italian marble, intricate chandeliers, curated sculptures and priceless works of art. A dedicated butler can mix a signature cocktail at the fully stocked bar while guests enjoy unobstructed ocean views from their balcony hot tub.
As for the master bedroom, the stand-out centrepiece is a custom-made US$200,000 Vividus bed from the renowned Hästens brand on Seven Seas Splendor, and the US$150,000 Savoir No 1. bed onboard Seven Seas Explorer. The Vividus king-sized continental bed was built by four master artisans over 18 months at the Hästens workshop in Köping, Sweden and features a pinewood frame, steel springs, and layers of flax, horsetail hair, and cotton and wool batting.
