Seven Seas Mariner

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 fleet of six-star vessels has reached nearly 3,000 luxury berths. The line’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 to leave the fleet in October, 2004) and Paul Gauguin, dedicated to the South Pacific. RSSC sails to more than 300 ports on six continents, including Antarctica, aboard 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

RSSC’s Seven Seas Mariner, the world's first all-suite, all-balcony ship, also holds the tasteful distinction of being the first ship offering dining by Le Cordon Bleu of Paris. Pampering up to 700 guests, Seven Seas Mariner is proportionately one of the most spacious cruise ships afloat, with high levels of personal service reflecting the line’s six-star tradition. Seven Seas Mariner suites range from 301 to 2,002 square feet. Mariner’s Mermaid pod propulsion system makes for virtually vibration-free cruising.
