Around the world in 131 days … Phileas Fogg, eat your heart out! Thirty countries on six continents… 36 UNESCO World Heritage sites… a total of 66 ports… on an epic oceanic circumnavigation of the globe… life surely doesn’t get much better, or more luxurious, than this.
This unashamedly grand voyage of a lifetime is being presented by the legendary Regent Seven Seas Cruises which just this year completed a $125 million fleetwide refurbishment programme, designed to reinforce its reputation as global leader of opulence afloat.
Bookings have just opened for ‘Navigate The World 2020’ on board the intimate and beautiful (and, of course, all-suites, all-balconies!) Seven Seas Mariner … and response from those who can afford to indulge their love of truly elegant travel is said to be at exceptional level.
The 700 passengers who will step on board the Seven Seas Mariner at San Francisco on 24 January 2020 will live like royalty for the duration of the cruise, enjoying polished and personalised service from exceptional staff and ship’s company.
The destinations are sensational, sailing roundtrip from San Francisco, cruising the idyllic islands of the South Pacific and discovering the ancient cultures of subcontinental India and the Arabian Peninsula, before exploring the Mediterranean in springtime and The Caribbean and Central American in early summer.
The Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ promise of ‘infinite, unforgettable experiences for luxury travellers’ extends to the limitless shore excursions on offer.
Guests will begin their world cruise with dinner at the 1909 landmark Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco, meeting and mingling with fellow world cruise guests; the first of a series of upscale shore-side events. Those dining opportunities include such delights as a Lord of the Rings-themed event in the Auckland War Museum; a private evening in Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay and an unforgettable private April afternoon and evening in Il Borro Villa and Village, a meticulously preserved 13th century Tuscan estate, where guests will tour the estate’s superb wine cellar and view its classic fine art collection before enjoying a sumptuous local, farm-to-table dinner alongside a Renaissance themed performance in the Villa’s amphitheatre.
As you might expect, Navigate the World 2020 UK guests will also enjoy wonderful cuisine throughout the cruise, with all the nice-ities and additional amenities which make a guest feel genuinely pampered, including free roundtrip business class air, unlimited laundry (including dry cleaning and pressing), door-to-door luggage service, comprehensive Visa package, and onboard medical service. Throughout their voyage they can look forward to being enveloped in what Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ describes as ‘The Most Inclusive Luxury Experience’.
For those who choose to deepen their experience 2020 World Cruises guests can also choose from a diverse range of optional Overland Programmes to explore colourful cultures, dramatic landscapes and exquisite landmarks along their route. Overland Programme guests will disembark the ship for up to three nights in small, private groups, accompanied by knowledgeable guides. Fascinating experiences in fabulous locations await them, such as the celebrated Temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, the unforgettable Taj Mahal, the blend of colonial and coast at Cochin, India; or a tour of Egypt’s world-renowned relics at Luxor and the Pyramids. A supplemental charge is made for Overland Programmes.
