When you cruise with Regent Seven Seas Cruises, it’s likely you’ll overhear other passengers sharing how many times they have cruised with this award-winning line. For some it’s just a few, while others can’t even keep count. So what keeps travelers coming back again and again? We’re sharing the secret behind the magic of Regent Seven Seas Cruises below.
1. Sense of comfort
As soon as you board one of Regent’s four small vessels (the largest holds only 750 passengers) and are swept away to your stateroom, you feel at ease. Every suite (and all cabins on Regent are suites!) comes with a walk-in closet, sitting area, marble bathroom, and other comforts necessary to make this your home away from home. And Regent is always working to keep the ships up to date. In addition to launching the Seven Seas Explorer last year, the Seven Seas Voyager had a $125 million refurbishment!
2. Canyon Ranch Spa
If you want to indulge in true relaxation while cruising with Regent, you are in for a treat: each Regent ship features a Canyon Ranch Spa Club (yes, THAT Canyon Ranch). Relax during a revitalizing massage, moisturizing facial, or calming aromatherapy treatment and then enjoy the rest of your journey feeling refreshed. And even when you are not in the spa, you can enjoy wholesome Canyon Ranch SpaClub cuisine at Compass Rose during lunch and dinner.
Speaking of cuisine, Regent’s ships offer exquisite dining options that rival some of the finest restaurants ashore. A few of the specialty restaurants include:
- Pacific Rim: Fresh Asian flavors + a zen-like ambiance
- Chartreuse: Traditional French cuisine with a modern touch
- Prime 7: Classic lux steakhouse with the feel of a members-only club
- Sette Mari at La Veranda: Italian flavors in an al fresco setting
- Compass Rose: fresh fare made to order at the heart of each ship
4. Enriching Shore Excursions
Experience the history, culture, and cuisine at Regent’s unique ports-of-call through their shore excursions. And did we mention Regent has free unlimited shore excursions?! Each stop offers a variety of activities that fit myriad interests. And for a small supplementary charge, there are Regent Choice Shore Excursions like private behind-the-scenes tours or authentic cultural experiences. No matter your interests, Regent makes it easy to immerse yourself in each destination.
5. Exciting destinations
Regent ships don’t just take you to the typical cruise ports; they take you on journeys across the globe. Since Regent vessels are smaller, they can go to ports that the big ships simply can’t reach. From Asia and Africa to the Mediterranean and Northern Europe to Canada and the Panama Canal, explore remote destinations during a once-in-a-lifetime adventure with Regent.
6. On-board Activities
Though seeing new destinations with the ease of only unpacking once is one of the main perks of cruising, days spent at sea where you can do as much or as little as you want make your cruise a true, relaxing vacation. No need to set an alarm to get up (and with beds as comfortable as Regent’s you’ll want to make sure you do on days you have an early excursion!) – take the day at your own pace. If activities are your MO, have no fear: Regent offers daytime and evening entertainment. By day sunbathe by the pool, read a book from the library, or take a cooking class in the Culinary Arts Kitchen (if you’re on the Explorer). By night, catch a show in the Constellation Theater, try your luck in the casino, or relax with a craft cocktail in the lounge.
Now if all of Regent’s exceptional offerings like gourmet specialty restaurants and enriching excursions have you thinking to yourself, “Sounds good, but how much will this add up to when I get off the ship?” here’s the real kicker: it is all included. The specialty dining, top-notch service, fabulous entertainment, unlimited shore excursions, Wi-Fi, spacious suites, and other amenities are all included in the fare. Forget the shock of the final bill – you know exactly what you’ll be paying from the get go.
