Regent Seven Seas Cruises has announced its summer and fall 2016 itineraries, including the inaugural season of its newest ship, the Seven Seas Explorer.
The 2016 fall collection will have more than 60 itineraries, three Grand Voyages and 11 new ports. Seven Seas Explorer will set sail on its maiden voyage and inaugural season as part of the summer 2016 schedule.
The three new Grand Voyages will range from a 47-night London to Copenhagen sailing to a 64-night Barcelona to Sydney sailing. The 47-night London to Copenhagen sailing introduces new ports that explore the fjords of Greenland, with stops in Nuuk and Qaqortoq. The sailing also visits less traveled ports, such as Denmark’s Torshavn (Faroe Islands) and Iceland’s Akureyri and Isafjordur.
For select sailings in the Mediterranean, Asia and Africa, Regent will introduce new options for its Free Extraordinary Land Program, which includes a free three-night hotel stay and complimentary guided tours. One experience explores the cities of the Emirates, as guests visit the Dubai Museum, the Jumeirah Mosque and the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. Another excursion includes visiting the capital city, Abu Dhabi, to experience architectural landmarks, such as the Emirates Palace Hotel.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises is offering three-night land stays complimentary on five Seven Seas Voyager sailings to guests booked in a Concierge Suite or higher. The customized land adventures, valued from $1,499 to $1,799 per person, are also available for guests staying in a Deluxe Suite for a special rate starting at $699 per person.
