Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ new luxury ship, the 750-guest Seven Seas Explorer, will have a lavish Canyon Ranch SpaClub with a thermal suite featuring hot and cold rooms and an infinity-edge plunge pool.
“We’re building the world’s most luxurious ship and wanted to establish a new standard for spa elegance,” said Jason Montague, president and COO of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
Treatments are being developed in partnership with beauty company Red Flower and, after premiering on Seven Seas Explorer in July 2016, will expand across the fleet.
The thermal suite will offer a variety of hot-to-cold experiences. An infrared sauna is said to soothe muscles more deeply than traditional steam saunas. Then there will be an aromatic steam room and a cold room, which maintains a temperature of 54 degrees for the same feeling as plunges into cold water.
The shower room offers preset treatments with various water flows, chroma-therapeutic lighting and audio effects that mimic natural sounds such as thunderstorms or waterfalls.
The private teak terrace is furnished with plush lounge chairs that surround an infinity-edge plunge pool overlooking the ship’s stern.

Next to the spa is a salon with four hair, two manicure and two pedicure stations.
A circular staircase takes guests to the fitness center one deck up. It will have free weights, weight-lifting machines, and cardio equipment. The facility also offers space for cycling, yoga and Pilates classes.
The reception area will feature crisscrossing light-grained wooden bands, a marble floor, and decorative light fixtures that twinkle off an abstract Swarovski crystal sculpture.
Among the spa treatments is the “Red Flower North Atlantic Journey,” an 80-minute body-exfoliating ritual with organic sea salts harvested from the Atlantic Ocean, enriched with sea algae and aloe vera, and scented with Icelandic moonflower. The body is then enveloped in a toning and hydrating wrap of Italian blood orange before a massage with French lavender.
The Red Flower Hammam, a 100-minute detoxifying ritual, vigorously scrubs guests with a blend of coffee, olive stones and fresh lemons, and then wraps them in rhassoul clay. This is followed by a float in Dead Sea salts, a cleanse with Moroccan mint tea and silt, and a Turkish massage.
