Regent Seven Seas has unveiled plans to delight guests’ tastebuds with enhanced restaurant designs and menu offerings, plus immersive culinary classes and gourmet shore excursions all offered aboard the new Seven Seas Splendor.
New Dining Options
The new vessel is scheduled to make her debut in February 2020, featuring seven dining venues including its largest specialty restaurant, Compass Rose, offering new dishes such as the Malaysian-style braised beef short rib with curry sauce and jasmine rice, or the grilled branzino with cauliflower rice, barley, spinach and pomegranate. At Pacific Rim, guests will find Pan-Asian dishes such as duck spring rolls and Thai red curry chicken, along with new unique offerings inclu the smoking presentation of dry ice sashimi. La Veranda serves breakfast and lunch buffets with a new Destination Corner dedicated to serving guests local cuisine based on the destination being sailed, while Sette Mari at La Veranda serves Italian specialties for dinner. Both venues offer new over-water alcove seating jutting out over the ocean, providing views of the water on three sides. Guests dining at Chartreuse can expect classic French fare with a modern twist, and those who opt for Prime 7 will be treated to an elegant steakhouse serving New York strip, porterhouse, filet mignon, and more. For more casual options, travelers can head to Coffee Connection, which is exclusive to Seven Seas Splendor, or the Pool Grill.
“Whether it’s a signature favorite or new offering, our skilled and imaginative chefs on Seven Seas Splendor will ensure guests feast on extravagant cuisine bursting with unforgettable flavors served in breathtaking presentations every day and night,” said Bernhard Klotz, v.p. of food and beverage for Regent Seven Seas Cruises, in press materials.
Travelers looking for more hands-on and immersive culinary experiences can choose from several options both on board and on shore. For example, exclusive to the inaugural season of Seven Seas Splendor are new Gourmet Explorer Tours delivering epicurean adventures personally crafted by Regent’s executive chef and director of culinary enrichment, Kathryn Kelly. Guests can choose from a variety of optional tours that take them to local markets to find exotic spices, sample wines at an estate and savor gourmet meals prepared by locally renowned chefs. Specific Gourmet Explorer Tours will be announced with all Seven Seas Splendor inaugural season destination experiences later this year.
Seven Seas Splendor will also offer the Culinary Arts Kitchen, which is designed with 18 individual cooking stations, offering a range of 20 new culinary classes teaching professional techniques and recipes by master chef instructors. New classes vary from seven methods on how to prepare seafood to exploring emerging fusion cuisines from around the world.
