At a time when many companies are retrenching, Regent Seven Seas Cruises continues to invest and upgrade its fleet. The company spent $20 million to upgrade Regent Seven Seas Mariner, pictured here (thanks to colleague Michael Coleman, a cruise consultant on sister ship Navigator) departing Fort Lauderdale on the first leg of its world cruise.
Among the improvements: a new steakhouse, Prime 7, which offers prime cuts of beef in this complimentary dining venue.
Regent, in fact, is becoming even more all-inclusive. The company introduced free alcohol fleetwide in 2007. Next year, complimentary shore excursions will be included to add even more value to a Regent Seven Seas cruise.
Tomorrow, I will have a report on the new Prime 7 steakhouse.
