Seven Seas Navigator
The elegant style and intimate luxury of the Seven Seas Navigator has been reimagined during a complete bow-to-stern makeover that includes bespoke designs from Ulster Carpets.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises has been undertaking a US$150 million fleet modernisation and the 450-guest Seven Seas Navigator now includes beautiful new interiors and furnishings that match the distinct individual style of the ship while ensuring a consistency within the fleet.
Working closely with Studio Dado, Ulster created an array of new carpet designs for every area of the Seven Seas Navigator, ranging from the stairs, atrium, corridors and bridge through to the ship’s selection of restaurants and entertainment facilities.
With distinctly different designs for each area, the team at Ulster Carpets has also managed to create a flowing continuity that seamlessly takes guests from one space to the next. Central to this is a gently imposing colour palette of blues, greys and golds that uses alternating accent colours and differentiating designs in each area to great effect.
The notable changes within Prime7, the ship’s contemporary American steakhouse, is a perfect example of this. Rich blues have been teamed with an intricate pattern of grey and gold to create a carpet design that immediately draws the eye. The contemporised style of this carpet creates a signature look that tones in wonderfully with classically styled furnishings.
This gold, grey and blue colour scheme creates a sense of continuity throughout the Seven Seas Navigator. For example, in the atrium, stairs and corridors, the accent grey is given a sense of depth with an interspersed geometric design and mottled splashes of blue and gold.
The curve and flow of the bar and stage inspires the carpet design in the Star Lounge while variations of a star burst theme are central to the style in the Spa and Navigation Lounge. This is augmented by more regimented yet equally eye-catching patterns in the Compass Rose Restaurant, Casino and the Card and Meeting Room.
The creative talents of the design team at Ulster Carpets are clearly on show on the Seven Seas Navigator, as the all-encompassing approach takes guests on a journey that accentuates the overall aesthetics of this prestigious ships.
“When guests step on board Seven Seas Navigator, they will find she continues to reflect Regent’s elegant style and famous attention to detail that fashionably honours her heritage as a beloved, intimate luxury ship,” said Jason Montague, president and CEO of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “Seven Seas Navigator now reflects the consistent look and feel of our fleet, but with special touches that make her distinctly unique.”
