Regent Seven Seas Unveils 2025-26 Voyages; SVP Sales Reveals Trends

Regent Seven Seas Cruises unveiled its 2025-26 "Voyage Collection," which introduces 164 new itineraries and 29 maiden ports of call. They encompass 500 port destinations across the globe. Guests can now pre-register their interest with their travel advisor, and reservations will open for public sale on June 21, 2023.

Luxury Travel Advisor also spoke one-on-one with Shawn Tubman, Regent Seven Seas' senior vice president of sales, about the new collection, luxury trends in 2023, and trade opportunities/support. Currently, Tubman is seeing four major luxury traveler trends:

  • The first is that "travelers want to explore new places" so Regent Seven Seas (as with most other lines) is introducing itineraries brimming with new ports of call.
  • Second, guests are now seeking much more immersion. So, the line's planned schedule for 2025-26 includes 124 overnight stays in ports. "This is what guests are asking for," he says. They're also seeking immersive shore excursions, such as those with a wellness focus, architectural slant or culinary immersion. 
  • Third, Tubman is seeing a luxury trend of booking longer voyages, many further out time-wise, too. 
  • And fourth, Tubman has "seen a lot of people moving up to Regent in celebrating something," such as a 25th wedding anniversary or other special occasion. Many of those celebratory events were missed during the pandemic and now consumers desire to not only go—but to splurge, as well.   

Spanning the Globe

In taking into account those luxury trends, Regent Seven Seas designed its new 2025-26 voyages to span the globe. Itineraries range from seven nights to a 154-night 2026 World Cruise, plus five "Grand Voyages." Travelers will find favorite regions to visit such as Alaska, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean and Northern Europe. But they'll also have choices of other voyages to such far-flung destinations as Australia/New Zealand, Asia, South America and the South Pacific. 

Among the exotic highlights are nine new sailings in Africa and Arabia, more than during any of the line's previous "Voyage Collections." For the first time, for instance, guests will have the ability to embark at Doha, Qatar, or Port Louis, Mauritius.

Tubman says "the exotics" strongly appeal to Regent Seven Seas' guests in their search for "a deeper dive." So, the inclusion of many more exotic ports is "a byproduct of our guests and their input." He notes that the line's luxury guests aren't shy about telling the line where it needs to go. Plus, the line's itinerary team is always looking for the next great places with appropriate infrastructure, he adds.

But new voyages seem "to be a lot in the exotics," he acknowledges, noting that the line's experienced travelers have "been there, done that" in many places across the globe. Demonstrating the "exotic element" are not simply one or two but rather five new ports of call in Madagascar, home to exotic lemurs.

Other highlights of the new voyage lineup, though, include bit more familiar, highly popular regions to visit. Guests can choose from two 14-night roundtrip sailings in Alaska on Seven Seas Explorer, North American seasonal voyages on Seven Seas Splendor, and two transits through the Panama Canal on Regent’s newest ship, Seven Seas Grandeur, which will also operate a Northern Europe maiden season.

Delving into local cultures, guests will enjoy free, unlimited shore excursions at every port of call, or they can choose from a menu of specialized "Regent Choice" tours such as "Epicurean Explorer," "Wellness," "Eco-Connect" and "Behind the Design Tours." Adding to guests' destination immersion opportunities are those previously mentioned 124 overnight stays, among them at Istanbul, Turkey; Bangkok, Thailand; and Luxor (Safaga), Egypt.

Regent Seven Seas' fares for 2025-26 voyages will include roundtrip business-class flights, gourmet cuisine in a range of specialty restaurants and al fresco dining venues, fine wine and spirits, entertainment, unlimited Internet access, free valet laundry service, and prepaid gratuities. For guests staying in Concierge-level suites and higher, Regent Seven Seas will also include a one-night, pre-cruise hotel package.

Seven Seas Grandeur

The line's newest ship, Seven Seas Grandeur, will begin sailing the Mediterranean on April 2, 2025, with a 14-night voyage from Barcelona, Spain, to Istanbul, Turkey. New ports of call will include Chios, Greece, and Brindisi, Italy, before the ship will sail north on June 1, 2025, from Lisbon, Portugal. Highlights of Seven Seas Grandeur’s first Northern Europe season will include such new ports of call as Narsaq, Greenland; Siglufjordur, Iceland; and Ulvik (Hardangerfjord), Norway. 

Then in fall, the ship will return to the Mediterranean for 10-night itineraries, prior to a transatlantic voyage from Barcelona, Spain to Miami, FL, in November 2025. Winter voyages will explore the Caribbean, visiting such ports as Grenada, Antigua, St Lucia, Martinique, and a new port of call for Regent Seven Seas: Frederiksted, St Croix, U.S.V.I. In December, the ship will embark on two roundtrip voyages from Miami, including a tropical holiday cruise.

In addition to Caribbean 2025-2026 winter voyages, the ship will transit the Panama Canal twice, cruise the Mexican Riviera, and visit Bermuda, Virginia and South Carolina before a spring 2026 return to Barcelona. 

Seven Seas Splendor 

In spring and summer 2025, Seven Seas Splendor will sail 10- and 12-night Mediterranean voyages. Highlights will include overnights in Cadiz (Seville), Spain; Piraeus (Athens), Greece; and Jerusalem in Israel.

Seven Seas Explorer 

Seven Seas Explorer will begin a summer season of Alaska cruises on May 14, 2025. It will operate seven-night, point-to-point itineraries between Vancouver and Seward, plus two,14-night, roundtrip Vancouver sailings. Alaskan ports of call will include Skagway, Ketchikan and Juneau; plus, the ship will transit the Inside Passage, visit Hubbard Glacier and call at Icy Strait Point.

Tubman gives Luxury Travel Advisor this tidbit for advisors: "Alaska is our number-one market for first time guests who are new to Regent Seven Seas Cruises." While they're not typically new to cruising, they are new to the brand. Not surprisingly, those summer voyages attract a lot of families and the line does offer children's programming aboard this ship's summer Alaska sailings. Some new-to-Regent guests sailing in Alaska are stepping up from a suite on a contemporary or premium cruise ship, says Tubman.

Starting in October 2025, Seven Seas Explorer will arrive in Tokyo, Japan, for three round-trip journeys. Then, the ship will sail to Australia and New Zealand, along the way visiting such ports as Shanghai, China; Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; Bangkok, Thailand; and Jakarta, Indonesia.

On January 12, 2026, Seven Seas Explorer will embark on a 61-night "Grand Asia Exploration" between Auckland, New Zealand, and Tokyo, Japan. Guests will go ashore in three new ports in Australia. Other highlights will include overnight stays in Bangkok, Thailand; Osaka, Japan; and Shanghai, China; as well as visits to Cambodia, the Philippines, Taiwan and South Korea. This "Grand Asia Exploration" itinerary also consists of four 14- to 18-night segments.

In March and April 2026, Seven Seas Explorer will operate four Tokyo roundtrips, prior to a westbound voyage to Vancouver, Canada, on May 3, 2026 . 

Seven Seas Voyager 

Seven Seas Voyager will set sail on June 3, 2025, in Europe with two Mediterranean itineraries before heading north for the summer in Northern Europe. New ports of call will include Norway’s Lofoten Islands, Kemi in Finland, and Malmö, Sweden. Then, in September 2025, the ship will return to the Mediterranean for fall to visit Istanbul, Turkey; Mykonos, Greece; Catania, Italy; and Barcelona, Spain, among other ports. 

On December 17, 2025, the ship will then sail to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, via the Suez Canal. Sailing on a 20-night southward journey from Dubai, the ship will visit the Seychelles, Comoros and Mozambique. Next are two open-jaw itineraries between Cape Town, South Africa and Port Louis, Mauritius. 

Rounding out the ship's 2025-26 "Voyage Collection" in spring 2026 are the following: A 20-night sailing from Cape Town, South Africa, to Dubai; an 18-night sailing from Dubai to Athens, Greece; and a 10-night sailing from Athens to Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy.

One exotic highlight? The four sailings between February 12 and April 17, 2026, can be combined for an epic 64-night "Indian Ocean Odyssey" from Mauritius to Italy. Along the route, travelers will explore Africa’s southeast coast and points in Arabia, before the ship transits the Suez Canal for a Mediterranean vacation. Guests will experience three new ports of call in Madagascar and overnight port stays in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania; Mahe, Seychelles; and Luxor, Egypt.

Seven Seas Mariner’s new 2025-26 "Voyage Collection" starts on June 24, 2025, with a 16-night voyage from Miami to New York, via the Caribbean. Cruise guests will explore Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao in the southern Caribbean, as well as Bermuda. 

Between July and September 2025, the ship will operate within Northern Europe, taking luxury travelers to Greenland, Iceland, the British Isles, Sweden, Lithuania and Belgium, to name just a few of the countries visited. That's followed by time in the eastern Mediterranean with calls in Turkey, Israel and Greece, plus ports in Egypt and Tunisia. In December 2025, Seven Seas Mariner will return to the Caribbean offering three round-trip Miami itineraries. 

For the 2025-2026 Voyage Collection, Seven Sea Mariner also will offer two "Grand Voyages," plus Regent Seven Seas' 2026 World Cruise.

The route along Africa's west coast includes calls in Cape Verde, Ghana, Togo, Sao Tome and Principe.

Then from Cape Town, Seven Seas Navigator will sail to Doha, Qatar, on a 19-night itinerary that visits exotic Mayotte, French Comoros, and Nosy Be, Madagascar. In December 2025, the ship will sail eastward to the Indian sub-continent, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand. From February 22, 2026, the vessel will operate two voyages roundtrip from Papeete, French Polynesia, with an overnight in Bora Bora.

For a longer "Grand Continental Sojourn," guests can choose Seven Seas Navigator's 84-night voyage between Barcelona and Sydney, Australia, departing October 31, 2025.

Supporting Travel Advisors

"Our main mission as a cruise line is to try and help the trade improve their success," says Tubman on travel advisors. "I want to help them know our guests and what the attributes [of those guests] are."

For example, the line has done extensive research and now provides advisors with demographic and psychographic profile "intel" to help them "better prospect" for Regent Seven Seas' guests. "We've also put together a series of marketing tips, whether that's direct mail, email, digital paid search or groups," he says. So the ultra-luxury line is showing advisors what the line is finding that works best in its own marketing—and then advisors can mirror that to be successful in the same way. "We're doing a lot of that," Tubman notes.

Recently, the line also did a comparative "total spend price" for luxury hotel guests, people who previously booked a 10-day stay in three cities. These results, which can be used by advisors with their clients, shows that a luxury cruise—with all its inclusions—can be up to 40 percent less expensive. Plus, Tubman says the travel itself is so much easier than dealing with multiple flights to different cities, transfers, packing/unpacking and so on. 

Tip: Regent Seven Seas also has a limited-time promotion going on right now with up to 40 percent savings for guests.Travel advisors also will receive a $200 gift card and two percentage points of additional commission. Advisors who sell three suites on any of 100 voyages through June 30, 2024 also will receive a free cruise. That promotion runs until the end of this month.

The line also offers a series of webinars including one on the new 2025-26 "Voyage Collection."
