Seven Seas Navigator - Regent Seven Seas Cruises - cruise ship review and photos

She is small, but not too small. She is luxurious, but not too luxurious. She is Regent's Seven Seas Navigator, carrying only 490 guests in spacious suites. With open seating dining and a new all-inclusive policy, she is in the running for the title of ultimate floating boutique hotel.

Seven Seas Navigator started her life as a Sovjet research vessel with an intriguing name: Akademik Nikolay Pilyugin. Construction of the vessel started as early as 1990 at the Admirality Yard in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg), but when the Soviet Union collapsed a year later work was halted. After 8 years the incomplete hull was sold to Radisson and towed to Italy.

In 1999, work resumed at the Mariotti yard in Genoa and by June, 2001 Seven Seas Navigator was ready to conquer the world. Her high guest to staff ratio, her spacious suites and cozy ambiance have made the ship very popular. Let's have a look on board!
