Regent Seven Seas Cruises is adding a new demonstration kitchen for cooking classes to the Seven Seas Explorer, which is scheduled to enter service in summer 2016.
A first for the brand, the Culinary Arts Kitchen will have 18 individual cooking stations atop three long curved rows with white quartzite countertops and stainless steel accents. The workstations will be equipped with induction cooktops and stainless steel sinks.
The Culinary Arts Kitchen will offer more than a dozen classes on topics such as healthy cooking, fish and shellfish preparation, food and wine pairings for entertaining, mini-desserts, high-heat grilling, and foods from the destinations visited by the ship.
The kitchen will be located on Deck 11 and have floor-to-ceiling windows.
Another new venue on the Seven Seas Explorer will be the Meridian Lounge, which will be located near the Constellation Theater on the port side of Deck 5. The lounge will have taupe leather furnishings, dark wood accent tables, and blue carpet. Brown granite flooring will surround the curved bar, which will have an antique silver finish and back-lit alabaster top. The lounge also will have a rosewood parquet dance floor and stage to host live musical performances.
The 56,000-ton, 750-guest Seven Seas Explorer will have all-suite accommodations. Fares include round-trip air, wines and spirits, sightseeing excursions in every port, all gratuities, a pre-cruise luxury hotel stay and complimentary Wi-Fi for guests in concierge and higher suites.
