Day 04 - Royal Naval Dockyards

March 28, 2019 - After a very rocky night caused by rough seas and high winds, Seven Seas Explorer docked at Royal Naval Dockyards (aka King's Wharf) in Bermuda. Once again, we had breakfast delivered to our suite, but it was a little too cool and way too windy to dine on the balcony. Every guest can have breakfast delivered to their suite by completing the provided order form the night before and placing it outside their suite.


Seven Seas Explorer is docked at King's Wharf in Bermuda this morning.


It was extremely windy when we disembarked the ship in Bermuda. There are shops and restaurants within walking distance of the ship. There are some great sights to visit, such as the Victualling Yard (below), the area designated for storing, preparing and delivering food for the naval fleet there.


Less than a mile from the ship is a nice shopping mall with several small shops selling lots of local artists' wares.


We were able to locate a store that sold souvenirs where we were able to buy postcards, a magnet, a Christmas ornament (for our collection) and postage.


We were back on board the ship in time to get ready for our early (6:30pm) dinner at Prime 7, Regent's premier steakhouse restaurant. We had time for a cocktail in the small bar at Prime 7. Another guest was gracious enough to take this photo of us. I am wearing my new Scott-E-Vest T5 Sport Coat which is super comfortable, fits great and has 19 pockets! It's my new favorite travel sport coat.


Prime 7 is located on Deck 10 aft and we were fortunate to be seated at a table for two at the very back of the restaurant with a panoramic ocean view.


The menu features a variety of appetizers, soups, and salads. The main courses focus on meat, but there are fish, chicken and vegetarian options available. After a delicious smokey tomato soup Amuse Bouche, our starters arrived. Rickee ordered the Foie Gras sliders: two brioche buns stacked with apricot compote, foie gras, an onion compote and drizzled with a truffle port wine sauce.


I chose a more mainstream Seared Lump Crabcake which was seasoned perfectly and delicious.


My Hearts of Romaine Caesar salad was sort of a de-constructed Caesar Salad. The stalks of romaine were topped with Parmesan shavings and accompanied by a delicious, garlicky Caesar dressing. I purposely requested that the anchovies be left off.


My 18oz. U.S.D.A. Prime Bone-In Ribeye was tender and cooked perfectly. I ordered a side of Chimichurri sauce, but the steak did not need any assistance in the flavor department.


Rickee's 6oz. U.S.D.A. Prime Filet Mignon arrived a bit undercooked, but was quickly replaced with one that was cooked perfectly Medium.


For side dishes, we shared an order of onion rings and creamed spinach. Both fell short in our opinion. The onion rings were a bit too greasy and the creamed spinach was very loose and runny, impossible to eat with a fork.

For dessert we shared an ice cream dish with vanilla and chocolate ice cream drizzled with hot fudge, caramel and topped with caramel popcorn.


Service from the wait staff and wine hostess was excellent. Our dinner at Prime 7 was one of our favorites so far on Seven Seas Explorer, and we look forward to a return visit.

Tomorrow, we will remain docked at King's Wharf.
