Seven Seas Splendor will offer innovative culinary experiences appealing to all the senses when she sets sail in February 2020. The newest Regent Seven Seas Cruises ship will elevate the cruise line’s legendary cuisine, focus on destination dishes that bring aboard local ingredients and culinary traditions from where Seven Seas Splendor is sailing, and feature new curated Culinary Arts Kitchen classes.
SEVEN AMAZING DINING VENUES ON BOARD
At the heart of Seven Seas Splendor is Compass Rose, the largest speciality restaurant on board. This sophisticated venue, with its exquisite chandeliers and bold Versace dinnerware, offers a multitude of choices and the ability to customise practically every aspect of guests’ meals. Savour enhanced flavours like the Chateaubriand with a delicious Red Wine Grain Mustard Sauce or entirely new dishes like the Malaysian-Style Braised Beef Short Rib with a flavourful Curry Sauce and Jasmine Rice; Paddlefish Caviar, served with Smoked Haddock Jelly and Lemon Cream; and Grilled Branzino, with Cauliflower Rice, Barley, Spinach, and Pomegranate.
This dramatic speciality restaurant features intricate architectural details, wood carvings and an immense art installation of a mythical dragon, setting the tone for the culinary journey that awaits. The Pacific Rim menu brings life to rich culinary traditions with a diverse array of delightfully prepared, Pan-Asian dishes, from the new smoking presentation of Dry Ice Sashimi and the sweet and spicy medley of sauces with the re-imagined Duck Spring Roll to the new Thai Red Chicken Curry with delicious Coconut Cream and Crispy Shallots.
La Veranda (Breakfast and Lunch) and Sette Mari at La Veranda (Dinner)
Italy is always part of Seven Seas Splendor’s itinerary with Sette Mari at La Veranda’s delicious dinner menu of authentic Italian specialties, inspired by family recipes which were handed down from generation to generation. Savour the perfectly-paired, fine Tuscan wines with new dishes like a mouth-watering, Spice-Crusted Tuna Steak with Braised Endive, Polenta and Salmoriglio.
Guests can start their day at La Veranda, enjoying a sumptuous breakfast while taking in the gorgeous ocean views, or savour the lunch buffets in the chic indoor dining room or al fresco on the shaded, open-air deck. Breakfasts include made-to-order omelettes and other specialties while La Veranda’s lunches feature a variety of delectable selections to choose from, including hot carving stations. During lunch at La Veranda, there will be a new Destination Corner featuring local cuisine based on the culinary traditions of the destination being sailed.
Enjoy these brilliant flavours morning, noon and night while dining at the most popular tables in the restaurant: the new and stunning, over-water alcove seating jetting out over the ocean for an even closer connection to the sea, surrounded on three sides by inspiring, magnificent views.
Experience this distinct speciality restaurant featuring classic French fare with a modern twist. Savour new flavours to Chartreuse like Frog Legs in Garlic Cream Sauce with Rutabaga or relish the tender Veal Rack Loin with Caramelised Endive, Grape Chutney and the earthy tones of a Walnut Veal Jus Sauce. Chartreuse evokes memories of a chic Parisian fine-dining restaurant discovered during an evening stroll along the Seine or just off the Champs-Élysées.
Handsomely decorated with inspired uses of glass, metal and marble, Prime 7 personifies luxury at every turn. This intimate and elegant steakhouse exudes glamour and elevates the classic American fare to new heights. The mouth-watering prime New York strip, porterhouse and succulent filet mignon are always aged perfectly while some new dishes re-imagine the ocean’s offerings with sophistication and panache. New at Prime 7 on Seven Seas Splendor are Applewood Smoked Salmon Steak, with Asparagus, Tamarind-Whiskey Sauce; Seared Diver Scallop and Cured Pork Belly Confit with Orange Pomegranate Sauce; and Hamachi Ceviche.
Exclusively aboard Seven Seas Splendor, enjoy a newly expanded Coffee Connection that feels like a classy metropolitan café with baristas delivering the perfect pick-me-ups alongside a number of delectable bites. Designed with muted pastels and crisp whites, this space’s elegant interior seamlessly transitions to trendy, open-air seating with astonishing ocean views on deck.
Dining al fresco at the Pool Grill offers all the best views in any weather, whether enjoying a relaxed lunch or a casual dinner. An on-deck dining experience pairs perfectly with a panoramic view of the surrounding landscapes, including mesmerising sunsets. Indulge in delicious regional barbecues or the freshly grilled fish of the day and refresh with the perfect milkshake and old-fashioned hand-dipped ice cream desserts.
CULINARY EXPERIENCES ON BOARD AND ON SHORE
Designed as a specialised facility with 18 individual cooking stations, the Culinary Arts Kitchen on board Seven Seas Splendor offers a range of 20 new culinary classes teaching professional techniques and recipes by master chef instructors.
