London and Box, Wiltshire (PRWEB UK) 22 February 2013
“We particularly like these ships. They are small enough to visit many of the more unusual destinations but since they carry a much smaller number of guests than many other operators for ships of their size the space onboard is exceptional. All three ships offer all-suite accommodation, with SS Mariner and SS Voyager, offering all-balcony accommodation.” said Kit Williams,cruise specialist at luxury travel agent Silver Compass.
Seven Seas Mariner and Seven Seas Voyager, both carrying around 700 guests, were refurbished in 2011 and Seven Seas Navigator, carrying 470 guests, was refurbished in 2012.
Recognised as "The Most Inclusive Luxury Cruise Experience", all Regent Seven Seas sailings include flights and transfers, all-suite accommodations, gourmet cuisine, premium spirits and fine wines, free shore excursions, gratuities and, for those in a Concierge Suite or higher, a pre-cruise luxury hotel stay, at no additional cost. Free Business Class flights are included for Penthouse Suites and higher on European voyages. On selected sailings, in addition to Regent’s own very comprehensive offering, Silver Compass also add a bonus onboard credit of up to $600 per suite.
The 2014 collection of itineraries features some of the most fascinating ports and unique destinations, but also some of the more uncommon ports in the world. Many feature overnight port stays and in-depth shore excursion programmes, giving guests an unmatched opportunity to immerse themselves in the history, culture and cuisine of a destination while enjoying the only truly all-inclusive cruise experience, completely unrivalled in the industry.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SUMMER 2014 PROGRAMME:
The Baltic and Arctic itineraries sailed by Seven Seas Voyager in the first part of the season offer a wide range of opportunities. Several new ports are included, amongst which Kristiansand, Norway and Murmansk, Russia. Overnight stays at many destinations allow more time to explore and new embarkation ports have been introduced in Oslo and Amsterdam. St Petersburg is a favourite destination for staff at Silver Compass, whether summer or winter, and the two-night stays there allow guests to take full advantage of the extensive range of included high-quality excursions.
Regent Seven Seas offer an extensive range of itineraries throughout this region on board SS Voyager and SS Mariner. Several new ports have been introduced for this season including Antibes, France; Argostoli, Greece and Dakar, Senegal. Overnight stays and an excellent excursion programme allow in depth exploration of many destinations, including Florence, Italy; Alexandria, Egypt (both overnight); Istanbul, Turkey; and Jerusalem, Israel (both two-night stops).
Alaska, New England and Canada:
If anywhere benefits from Regent’s extensive range of unlimited included excursions it is here. Seven Seas Navigator spends the period from May to August in Alaska. Towards the end of the season, she moves to New England and Canada for three cruises between New York and Montreal, making the most of the Autumn in that region.
Seven Seas Voyager ends her Mediterranean season with a 21-night voyage to Bangkok, Thailand; SS Mariner’s offers an exciting 44 day itinerary from Rome to Miami; and SS Navigator ends her season in the Caribbean and the Amazon, also offering 31- to 43-days of coast-to-coast exploration. Extended Voyages combine the best of several of the different regions in one trip.
