Major redecoration was done in the Compass Rose main dining room, La Veranda buffet and Voyager Lounge. The Penthouse, Concierge and Deluxe suites were overhauled with a more contemporary design.

Other areas touched during the refurbishment of Seven Seas Voyager include the reception area, Coffee Connection, Connoisseur Lounge, card room, boutiques, casino and the Canyon Ranch SpaClub.

The ship came out of drydock on Nov. 9 with five new production shows on a 23-night cruise from Barcelona to Dubai.
