Regent Seven Seas Voyager gets US$100m refit ahead of Dubai cruise

Regent Seven Seas Cruises has announced that Seven Seas Voyager will undergo renovations as part of the company’s $125 million fleet-wide refurbishment program ahead of her Dubai cruise in 2017.

Seven Seas Voyager is the second Regent Seven Seas ship to undergo the renovations, following the Seven Seas Navigator. Seven Seas Mariner, will be next and is scheduled to begin its refurbishment in April 2017.


When Voyager emerges from the extensive 25-day dry dock for renovations, she will set sail on a 23-night Barcelona-to-Dubai cruise departing on Nov. 9. This voyage is also the annual Reunion Cruise and will be hosted by Regent Seven Seas Cruises president and CEO Jason Montague.
