Seven Seas Explorer pool to have shallow and deep sections

By Tom Stieghorst

The Seven Seas Explorer, a ship scheduled to enter service in summer 2016, will have a T-shaped pool with a large shallow area and a narrower deep section, Regent Seven Seas Cruises revealed on Tuesday.

Surrounding the pool will be a teak deck with loungers. One deck up, circular double loungers with white fabric shades overlook the pool. Also, there will be fixed sunscreens on supports running the length of the pool on either side of the upper deck, providing shade to loungers.

The pool area is mostly white, with teak and blue tile, giving it an elegant contemporary flair.

At the end nearest the pool grill are two hot tubs shaded by large circular sunscreens.

Sheer fabric curtains divide the areas at the far edges of the pool deck into more intimate lounge spaces.

Regent said the Deck 12 sports area features shuffleboard, putting greens, golf nets, a bocce court, paddle tennis and a jogging track.

The Explorer will be Regent’s first new ship since 2003.
