Comfort is guaranteed on these voyages—Regent Seven Seas Cruises has suite-only accommodation on all its ships. Further, each suite comes with its own private balcony and all mod cons. Your package also includes unlimited excursions at exotic ports of call, dining at speciality restaurants, and a steady supply of fine wines, premium spirits, and other beverages throughout the cruise. Guests at the higher-end suites will also have a butler service, iPad, binoculars, Hermès amenities, among other things.
With no more than 700 guests on any ship, you can rest assured you won’t have to jostle for space at the on-board gym or wait endlessly for your turn at the ocean-view putting greens.
