'A canvas such as Seven Seas Grandeur is a designer’s dream,' said Yohandel Ruiz, founding partner, Studio DADO, which is designing all the interiors. 'The level of luxury needed requires us to consider and perfect every single detail that the discerning Regent guest will experience. Not only is the functionality of each individual space of the highest importance, whether it’s indulging in a gourmet meal or reclining on a plush mattress for a restorative sleep following a day of exploring, but the finest of materials must work in perfect harmony too, from textures to color tones. It’s a challenge to relish.'

Prime 7 and Chartreuse
Following the reimagined design of the Compass Rose main restaurant are two other dining spots for Seven Seas Grandeur.
The design of Prime 7 steak house and Chartreuse, the French restaurant, were inspired by turn of the century New York and 1925 Paris and the Art Deco movement, respectively.
The new-design Observation Lounge provides quiet alcove seating for sunset-watching and elegant space for cocktails under an organic art nouveau-inspired mesh crystal chandelier.

From Miami, the ship explores the western Caribbean on a seven-night cruise that includes a stop at Harvest Caye, Belize. The 16-nght holiday cruise to Los Angeles focuses on Central America and the Panama Canal, with calls at ports in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Mexico. The reverse voyage on Jan. 8, 2024, takes the ship back to Miami.
A 10-night voyage on Jan. 26 allows further exploration of the western Caribbean including Costa Maya, Cozumel and Roatán, plus Key West, among other destinations.

Back to the Mediterranean
The ship returns to Europe via a 14-night crossing from New York on April 24 via the Azores and Spain’s Valencia, Cartagena and, finally, Barcelona.

A 12-night cruise on May 8 explores France and Italy’s West Coast before sailing around 'the boot,' stopping at Montenegro and Croatia en route.
