Radisson Seven Seas MarinerThe 50,000 ton, Seven Seas Mariner carries 700 passengers in all-suite accommodationss, all with private teak balconies. This remarkable luxury vessel manages to retain the intimacy of her smaller fleet mates, yet with the space to offer additional dining and entertainment options. A crew of 445 affords the high level of personalized service for which Radisson Seven Seas Cruises is noted.

As the first all-suite, all-balconied vessel afloat, Seven Seas Mariner has eight styles of suite accommodations to suit her guests' lifestyles. From a Deluxe Suite measuring 252 square feet inside (balcony 49 square feet) to the Master Suite at 1,204 square feet interior (balcony 376 square feet), all feature European king-size or twin beds fitted with heavenly down-filled duvets. Warm wood cabinetry and deep blues and gold create a soothing retreat. Upon embarkation, guests find a welcoming bottle of champagne and two bottles of their preferred spirits on their combination credenza/mini-bar. Refrigerators are stocked with soft drinks and bottled water and replenished as needed. 

Sitting and sleeping areas can be separated in standard suites with a curtain for privacy, while higher categories include separate living/dining rooms and bedrooms. Other amenities include dressing tables, walk-in closets with shoe racks, a personal safe, and drawers galore, and a luxurious marble bath with full-sized tub/shower and plenty of storage. Save a bit of room in your suitcase--a hairdryer, Judith Jackson toiletries and cotton robes are provided for your convenience.

Standard Suite Balcony

Private teak balconies are furnished with padded lounge chairs and large tables suitable for en suite dining. Room service is available from the 24-hour menu and guests may also order from the Compass Rose dinner menu during restaurant hours of operation. 

While Seven Seas Mariner doesn't have a dedicated children's playroom, the Club Mariner program schedules organized, educational activities to enhance the voyages of young cruisers accompanying their parents.

Following her spring inaugural season Bermuda cruises and daylight transits of the Panama Canal, Seven Seas Mariner will spend the summer exploring Alaska.  She returns to a series of autumn and winter West Coast and Panama Canal sailings via a "South Pacific Odyssey" to the Marquesas and Society Islands of French Polynesia, including Christmas Island and Hawaii. In early-2002, her schedule includes intriguing South American itineraries before her spring repositioning to Europe for Mediterranean and Baltic cruises.

With port-intensive itineraries, open seating dining in four restaurants, a guest lecturer program, complimentary soft drinks and bottled water at all times and pouring wines with dinner, gratuities included, and a wide range of activities and entertainment, the Seven Seas Mariner has just about everything to provide a satisfying and memorable voyage for discriminating, seasoned cruise veterans. 

Did they have to shove me down the gangway as Seven Seas Mariner prepared to set sail from Charleston? No, I left willingly, if somewhat reluctantly. This marvelous new vessel heads my 'wish list' of future cruises.
