Seven Seas Navigator is a cruise ship for Regent Seven Seas Cruises. The vessel entered service for Radisson Seven Seas Cruises in 1999. She is built for the luxury market. 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[edit]

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, the ownership was transferred to Regent Seven Seas Cruises. She continues to sail under the same name as she had under the previous ownership.
