Seven Seas Mariner
The Regent Seven Seas Mariner is a decadent, all-suite, all-balcony ship. Your fare is all-inclusive, too, including drinks, excursions, specialty dining, Internet, and even gratuities. The ship launched in 2001, but a 2014 refurbishment upgraded the decor and added luxe touches, including the combo shower/bathtub and marble counters in your cabin's bathroom.
What We Love
Food All Day Long: Hungry late? Early? Room service is 24 hours, so just ring up the kitchen and order a meal or snack. For a mid-afternoon treat, high tea is served daily in the Horizon Lounge.
Fitness Classes: Regent Seven Seas Mariner's onboard personal trainer runs the gym and directs daily fitness activities for those so inclined. Join a class or one of the outdoor morning deck challenges to get your blood flowing — and counteract the all-hours dining.
Best Known For
Plenty of Attention: You'll be one of 700 passengers and Regent Seven Seas Mariner has more than 440 crew members, so service is polished.
Open Seating: Reservations are not required at Compass Rose (the main dining room) or Sette Mari, the ship's Italian restaurant.

Who It's Best For
Well-Heeled and Well-Traveled Travelers: You'll likely find few children on board your sailing.
Don't Say We Didn't Warn You
Some Reservations Are Required: The specialty restaurants, Prime 7 steakhouse and the French Signatures, offer limited space and are extremely popular, so you can only reserve one meal per cruise in each of these venues.
