June 18, 2022

Laura and I enjoyed an evening on the rocks near Chebucto Head awaiting the departure of the Seven Seas Navigator, a more elegant ship then the mobile hotels that visit Halifax in the summer and fall.

Seven Seas Navigator is a luxury cruise ship operated by Regent Seven Seas Cruises. She entered service for Radisson Seven Seas Cruises in 1999. Ninety percent of her cabins have their own private verandas.[2] She has no sister ships. The hull was constructed by former USSR (Russia) as a satellite tracking ship.[3] The hull was purchased by RSSC and the superstructure was finished by Mariotti Yards, Italy.

History

In 2004, the ship was featured and used as a focal point for the movie After the Sunset. The movie starred Pierce Brosnan and Salma Hayek.

In the spring of 2006, Radisson Seven Seas Cruises re-branded as Regent Seven Cruises. The Seven Seas Navigator continues to sail under the brand Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

The Navigator underwent a $40 million refurbishment in March/April 2016 that upgraded the common areas and suites.

USN Captain (retired) Morton Jablin has lived on Seven Seas Navigator since 2005.[4][5]
