Seven Seas Explorer to Feature an Opulent Outdoor Oasis

Am I the only cruise passenger who doesn’t pack a bathing suit? Even those of us who don’t swim can appreciate a glistening pool ringed by teak decking with plush oversized lounge chairs and chic circular sunbeds. Those amenities form the centerpiece of a new outdoor oasis on the luxury cruise ship Seven Seas Explorer. The pool and sports decks of the all-suite Seven Seas Explorer will feature the same extraordinary level of detail found in the ship’s opulent suites, gourmet restaurants, and elegant lounges, and offer a variety of relaxation and outdoor recreation options.

“The pool and sports decks will become a must-experience indulgence for guests sailing on Seven Seas Explorer,” said Jason Montague, president and chief operating officer for Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “Tillberg Design created a beautiful outdoor haven where guests can enjoy an assortment of recreational activities, relax while taking in breathtaking panoramic vistas, or delight in gourmet al fresco dining, all while completely ensconced in luxury befitting the world’s most luxurious ship.”

Luxurious Pool Deck Provides Intimate Retreat
Drawing inspiration from pool retreats at exclusive boutique hotels, with a fusion of Southeast Asian design elements and Caribbean accents, the Deck 11 oasis on Seven Seas Explorer provides an intimate setting for relaxing, swimming and enjoying the ever changing vistas. With rich teak, natural stone, and luxurious marble, the geometrical design of the ship’s centerpiece pool evokes a welcoming, modern feel.

The pool provides the perfect respite for guests seeking a refreshing swim and offers an expansive 3-inch deep shallow section for guests looking to cool off by dipping their toes in the water poolside. Paying homage to the ocean, sea-inspired ceramic tiles line the pool. At the end nearest the Pool Grill, shaded under contemporary circular overhangs, are two hot tubs perfect for relaxing after a day of exploring.

Sheer curtains impart a level of intimacy around the pool, creating secluded, private escapes for relaxation. Stylish double loungers, some perched on raised platforms, enhance the elegant design, with a center stage that creates the perfect venue for special poolside musical performances. Adjacent to the pool area, guests can enjoy al fresco covered dining or grab a bite to go at the Pool Grill which serves breakfast, lunch, snacks, sweets, and refreshing drinks.

In the evening, an array of lighting effects help set the mood for any occasion, whether it’s bringing the deck alive by infusing light on the glowing azure pool for a colorful celebration or using backlit canvases to produce a more serene, romantic evening retreat.

Sports & Sun-Deck Offer Recreation at Sea
Deck 12 combines a dedicated sports area with a sun-deck for those wishing to enjoy more active pursuits or soak in the sun with spectacular views over the horizon. The sports area features a deck shuffleboard, putting greens, golf nets, bocce court, paddle tennis, and jogging track. The sun-deck has inviting circular loungers where guests can feel the ocean breezes and unwind.

The maiden voyage for Seven Seas Explorer will be a 14-night sailing from Monte Carlo to Venice on July 20, 2016. The ship will remain in Europe for the majority of its inaugural season, sailing 11 voyages that crisscross the Mediterranean before making its North American debut in Miami in December.
