The pool deck aboard the Seven Seas Mariner will undergo the most comprehensive redesign, creating a new open layout with teak flooring throughout. A new mosaic-tiled pool, featuring a broad ledge for lounging in shallow water, will be the centerpiece of the new space.
Additional public spaces on the Seven Seas Marinerslated to get a facelift include the atrium, and corridors, which will all receive new carpeting, art, furniture, and décor. The ship library and spa will also be transformed.
The fitness in aerobics center meanwhile, will get new state-of-the-art machines and equipment.
As for suites on the Seven Seas Mariner, they will now include such elegant details as Regent Elite Slumber beds with plush, padded leather headboards; stylish sofas, and new artwork. All suites will also feature walk-in closets and oversized, marble-accented bathrooms.
