Seven Seas Navigator



Regent Seven Seas Cruises History

Fort Lauderdale-based Radisson Seven Seas Cruises, resulting from 1994’s merger of Seven Seas Cruises and Radisson Cruises, is part of Carlson Hospitality Worldwide of Carlson Companies, Inc., one of America’s largest privately-owned corporations. With 2003’s debut of Seven Seas Voyager, RSSC’s newest all-suite, all-balcony ship, the line’s fleet of six-star vessels has reached nearly 3,000 luxury berths. Radisson’s small to mid-size ships also include Seven Seas Mariner, Seven Seas Navigator, the twin-hulled Radisson Diamond, the yacht-like Song of Flower (sold and set to leave the fleet in October, 2004) and Paul Gauguin, dedicated to sailing the South Pacific. RSSC sails to more than 300 ports on six continents, including Antarctica, with vessels designed for guests numbering in hundreds, not thousands. Upscale, “but not uptight” is how the line describes onboard ambiance. RSSC is the first cruise line to enjoy membership in the Guild of English Butlers.

Quick View

All-suite, 490-guest Seven Seas Navigator debuted in 1999 and features all ocean-view suites (90 percent with private balconies), plus fine dining options, generous space-per-guest ratios and a Judith Jackson Sea Spa. In the six-star tradition of Radisson Seven Seas Cruises, the Seven Seas Navigator is destined for distinction. Occupying the uppermost niche in cruising, she offers her 490 guests an unusual level of luxury and some of the highest space and service ratios at sea. From her all-suite, all-ocean-view accommodations with their luxurious marble baths to her signature cuisine to her superbly attentive staff, she has few equals. The all-suite Radisson Navigator has garnered a contingent of loyalists among cruisers seeking larger ship amenities with the intimacy of a smaller ship. Heavy vibration, evident during initial sailings, has been smoothed out for the most part, allowing guests to luxuriate amid casual elegance, especially during days at sea.
