With the ship’s inaugural season having gone on sale on September 22, 2021, the cruise line revealed via an exclusive video interview with Regent Suite designers – Studio DADO – how such an illustrious and coveted suite is conceived. Never-before-seen images and details of the reimagined master bathroom which provides a complete in-suite spa experience were also unveiled. The space features a personal sauna, steam room and treatment area where its discerning residents will be pampered with unlimited complimentary spa services. Illustrating the master craftmanship that permeates the entire suite, 9 different types of marble have been used in the design of the master bathroom alone.
“With Seven Seas Grandeur’s Regent Suite, we have once again evolved the very art of luxury – the craftmanship and artistry of this design is incredible,” said Jason Montague, president and CEO, Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “Studio DADO has married comfort, elegance and style in a fresh and exciting new way, while retaining the essence of the unrivalled Regent experience which our guests have enjoyed for close to 30 years.”

Design Secrets of The Most Exclusive Address at Sea
Each Regent Suite is as distinct as it is breath-taking, offering its own personality and theme of design. The responsibility to create an authentic, unforgettable Regent Suite for Seven Seas Grandeur fell to Studio DADO’s founding partner Yohandel Ruiz, and, lead designer, June Cuadra, who were delighted to take on the challenge.
“We imagined the Regent Suite on board Seven Seas Grandeur to be unique and different from previous vessels, capturing the curiosity and discerning eye of an art collector,” stated Ruiz.
Cuadra added, “We really envisioned the space as a gallery, where every piece of furniture, every finish material, every artwork has been painstakingly curated to make the space feel very inviting and welcoming.”
In an exclusive interview with Jason Montague, president and CEO, Regent Seven Seas Cruises, the creative duo goes on to detail the design secrets of the next Regent Suite.
Moments of Luxury from Start to Finish
The artistic theme begins before the guest even sets foot in the palatial suite, where Italian marble has been used to create a beautiful archway around the entry-door creating excitement and anticipation of what lies beyond. Once the doors open, the dramatic hallway contrasts with the bright, sprawling suite revealing vast ocean views.
Studio DADO have created more “moments” throughout the accommodation to heighten the overall experience. For example, an unexpected faux fireplace, with bronze flame, completes the sophisticated living area, while afternoon daydreaming or night-time stargazing on twin chaise lounges is possible in the skylit, glass-enclosed “Parlor”, a new space for Seven Seas Grandeur’s Regent Suite.
Reimagined Master Bedroom and Master Bathroom
The master bedroom offers a visually distinct experience to previous Regent Suites. The bedroom features an extravagant four-poster bed housing a Hästens Vividus mattress, and artistry continues to envelop the design with a custom-made eglomise art panel by Confluence Studios crowning the head of the bed.
The interview unveiled never before seen renderings of the ultimate luxury – the Regent Suite master bathroom, an in-suite spa. Studio Dado explained that they distinguished this area from previous Regent Suites by capitalising on the unrivalled ocean views, placing a “jewel-box” shower in the centre of the space and a jetted bathtub joining heated loungers adjacent to the window wall.
The bathroom offers guests a complete in-suite spa experience with a treatment area offering unlimited complimentary spa services, sauna, steam room and a choice of luxurious bath amenities including soaps and lotions from Bottega Veneta, Guerlain and L’Occitane, among a host of other beauty and well-being amenities.
Along with art, master craftmanship is a key theme throughout the suite, and is nowhere more evident than in the master bathroom with a total of 9 different types of marble used to create his and her vanity units, the bathtub, heated loungers and much of the walls and flooring.
