Regent Seven Seas will be adding a brand new Italian restaurant on board in an attempt to spice up their fleet.
The casual style restaurant named Sette Mari, will be added to all of Regent’s ships this summer to celebrate the cruise lines 20th birthday.
Their current on board breakfast and lunch venue, La Varanda, will be transformed in the evenings to become ‘Sette Mari’ which is Italian for ‘Seven Seas’.
The menu will differ to what is currently offered at La Varanda, with a heavy focus on speciality Italian food and fine wine.
"Sette Mari will not require reservations ... and offers the perfect complement to the dining venues on our ships," said Mark Conroy, the line's president, in a statement. "After a full day ashore, guests can select appetizers and the house-made pasta on their own and be finished in as little as 45 minutes or enjoy a leisurely evening ordering specialties from the menu."
Some of the dishes on the menu that you can expect include all the Italian classics such as spaghetti carbonara, bolognaise and lasagne. Italian seafood will also be incorporated into the menu including lobster, shrimp, scallops, clams, mussels and calamari served in garlic, white wine, parsley and fresh tomato.
The restaurant will have both indoor and outdoor eating options and will offer items both at a self-serve style buffet and off the menu.
The new restaurant looks set to make its 2012 debut aboard the Seven Seas Navigator on May 30, aboard the Seven Seas Voyager on July 2 and finally will be appearing on the Seven Seas Mariner on July 13 2012.
Regent Seven Seas have plenty of other restaurants on board their fleet including the main dining room serving a continental menu, a French restaurant called Signatures and an American-style steakhouse called Prime 7.
