    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Sept. 1 /CNW/ -- Regent Seven Seas Cruises (RSSC)
announced today that world famous Canyon Ranch , the leading operator of
destination health resorts, will soon operate the spa, beauty salon, wellness
and fitness facilities on board the line's fleet of all-suite ultra-luxury
ships.

    "It gives us great pleasure to welcome the world's leading luxury spa
brand aboard our ships," said Mark Conroy, President of Regent Seven Seas
Cruises. "Canyon Ranch's unique approach to lifestyle perfectly complements
our brand and the lifestyle of our guests," he added.

    Aboard Seven Seas Voyager, Seven Seas Mariner and Seven Seas Navigator,
the Canyon Ranch SpaClub , from the Canyon Ranch at Sea division, will feature
a state-of-the-art spa, wellness and fitness facility, plus a luxurious,
full-service beauty salon. SpaClub will offer the most desirable spa amenities
available: massage, body and skin-care treatment rooms, a gym and weight room
with cardio and weight training equipment, a juice bar, men's and women's
locker rooms, thalassotherapy, sauna and steam rooms.

    Canyon Ranch SpaClub will be installed on each ship in December 2009,
with the first cruises featuring this luxurious facility being Dec. 18 for
Seven Seas Voyager, Dec. 20 for Seven Seas Mariner, and Dec. 28 for Seven Seas
Navigator.

    Regent Seven Seas Cruises will also feature a full range of culinary
offerings from Canyon Ranch's incomparable Spa Cuisine, which is both
nutritious and created with the highest gourmet standards. This array of
healthy cuisine will be available starting in the spring of 2010 at breakfast,
lunch and dinner in each of the ships' main dining room, Compass Rose; for
breakfast and lunch in the more casual dining venue La Veranda; at the Pool
Grill, and on the 24-hour Room Service menu for in-suite dining.

    "Canyon Ranch shares our passion for fine and healthy cuisine and our
culinary teams will be working together to create a unique and diverse array
of healthy, gourmet meals," added Conroy.
    

    More Than a Spa, A Lifestyle

    
    Canyon Ranch certified fitness instructors will conduct daily group and
private fitness, yoga and tai chi classes for guests. In addition, on select
voyages Canyon Ranch healthy living experts will offer on-board presentations
and workshops addressing lifestyle change, healthy living, stress management
and a variety of other topics.

    The Canyon Ranch SpaClub Beauty Salon will offer complete beauty services
for women and men. The extensive Salon menu will feature hair design and nail
care treatments, including luxurious spa manicures and pedicures, makeup
consultations and makeovers.

    The facility will offer an array of rejuvenating spa treatments, some
created specially for Regent guests, include massages and therapeutic
bodywork, mud, aromatherapy, ayuvedic and seaweed treatments, facials and
masks featuring Canyon Ranch's award winning Your Transformation skincare
products, conditioning body scrubs and therapeutic body cocoons.

    "Canyon Ranch is thrilled to be expanding its 'at Sea' division aboard
the ultra-luxury ships of Regent Seven Seas Cruises," stated Chief Operating
Officer Peter Smith. "We share Regent's passion for unparalleled service and
look forward to bringing our highly acclaimed amenities to our mutual guests."
