Regent Cruises Profile
Regent Cruises ProfileRegent Seven Seas offers an incomparable program of exploration and discovery to over 300 ports on six continents, including Antarctica. Their luxury vessels are designed for guests numbering in the hundreds rather than the thousands. The ambiance on board is personal, individual, accommodating... upscale but not uptight. And all ships also share certain distinctions in accommodations, service, dining and amenities that elevate them to the lofty vantage point of an enviable six stars.
Chosen as the World's Best Small Cruise Line by the readers of Travel + Leisure magazine and Conde Nast Traveler, Regent Seven Seas has earned a leadership role in the 6-star cruise industry. Their fleet of luxury ships provides a limited number of guests the highest standard of cruising excellence combined with exciting opportunities for discovery around the world.
Ultra-Luxury with All-Inclusive ValueRegent Seven Seas' objective to provide an ultra-luxury cruise experience that also represents true value. In keeping with this philosophy, their voyages feature many enhancements, benefits or special events on a complimentary basis or at a minimal cost. And most of their fares also include many features normally considered "extras" such as gratuities; non-alcoholic beverages throughout your voyage; wines at dinner and often at lunch; an in-suite bar set-up stocked with your choice of liquor, wines or champagne upon embarkation (and on some of our ships, throughout the entire cruise!).
As a matter of fact, World Ocean & Cruise Liner Society has awarded the "Best Cruise Value" in the ultra-deluxe category to Regent Seven Seas for 11 years in a row for these reasons.
Activities and Things to DoRegent Seven Seas offers an unusual array of pleasurable pastimes - including some activities rarely available even in the finest resorts on land. Contract Bridge, for example, complimentary computer classes, art auctions and classes in ballroom dancing. However, to do or not to do is up to you.
On each voyage, a guest lecturer drawn from the highest ranks of the Diplomatic Service, leading universities or museums presents informal talks or slide shows about the unique places you'll be visiting. Learn about the Incas of Peru on a South America cruise, for example, or a lecture on Renaissance Florence on a voyage around Italy.
Free computer classes include Introduction to E-mail and Advanced Word Processing and Digital Photography may also be available. Or if bridge is your game, a certified Master Bridge instructor can teach you the fine art of contract or duplicate bridge in the card room.
Regent's exclusive Le Cordon Bleu Class Culinaire is available on select sailings, a hands-on experience taught by chefs trained in the Le Cordon Bleu method of classic French cooking. There is a charge per guest for this exclusive course.
Additional options include art auctions and a library well stocked with books, DVD's and assorted games. There are duty-free boutiques and a Photo Shop with film and camera equipment. And every afternoon, high tea accompanied by fresh scones and other delicacies is served in one of the lounges.
EntertainmentOn just about any night of your Regent Seven Seas Cruise, you'll be tempted to abandon any thoughts of going to bed at a sensible hour. There are dazzling live performances, thrilling games of chance, romantic cabaret acts, hilarious (and sometimes quite talented) Karaoke performances, plus dancing until you tell them when. Need a partner? One of Regent's gentlemen hosts will be honored to spin you around the floor.
Lounges and Cigar BarsSettle into a comfortable English club chair in the Connoisseur Club, and light up a hand-rolled cigar from the climate-controlled humidor. Or watch for falling stars in the romantic Observation Lounge accompanied by the grand piano or, perhaps, a cabaret artist.
CasinosAre you in the mood to gamble? Drop by the elegantly appointed Casino, where croupiers deal the cards and announce the plays with a savior-faire that would make James Bond green with envy. Gaming choices include blackjack, mini-craps, roulette, video poker, and slot machines.
Fitness ProgramsDevotees of health and fitness will find the latest exercise equipment in the window-walled Fitness Center. In the Aerobics Room next door, professional instructors lead fitness classes, while for the perfect denouement, the Judith Jackson Sea Spa presents an elaborate array of spa and beauty treatments using pure, plant-based products.
In the fitness centers and aerobics rooms, you'll find lifecycles, free weights, striders, stairmasters, treadmills, weight benches, a Nautilus machine, workout mats and step benches. A fitness instructor is on hand to offer advice and to demonstrate the use of the fitness equipment.
Regent is also devoted to sports with golf cages, shuffleboard, paddle tennis and a full-circle jogging track. And on some ships you'll also find teak pool decks, large heated pool, two whirlpools, table tennis, and a Pool Bar and Grill. Please check our website for more details about your ship.
Carita of Paris Spa ProgramRegent Seven Seas guests have access to one of the most exclusive land-based spa operations in the world, with its unrivalled approach to spa and beauty; services are tailored uniquely to the needs of each individual. Carita of Paris is an upscale spa, whose patented techniques flow from its Parisian heritage, was founded with a single aim: to unveil "the touch of charm inside everyone with made-to-measure solutions". The Carita approach couples pleasure with effectiveness, sophistication with simplicity and research with the expertise of highly trained beauty therapists, hairdressers and nail technicians.
The Dining ExperienceRegent Seven Seas is so passionate about creating an extraordinary dining experience, that they have left nothing to chance. Seating is open, allowing you to dine whenever, wherever and with whomever you wish. Or you may opt for a reservations-only restaurant.
On each ship, the choices where to dine are as varied as the international menus. Waiters recruited from some of the world's finest restaurants and hotels provide renowned "Above & Beyond" service. A choice of fine, complimentary wine is poured nightly, or a professional sommelier will be pleased to discuss alternatives available for purchase from your ship's wine cellar. And if you prefer to dine en suite, you may order selections from the chef's nightly menu during regular dining hours - while the room service menu is available 24 hours a day.
Staterooms and SuitesAll of the accommodations on the Seven Seas Mariner and Seven Seas Voyager are beautifully appointed, spacious suites with private balconies. Nearly the same can be said for the Seven Seas Navigator, where 90% of her suites are balconies.
Suites range from a quite sufficient 301 square feet (including balcony) to a staggering 2,002 square feet in the Seven Seas Mariner's aptly named Master Suite. Even the smallest deluxe stateroom on the Regent Diamond seem more commodious than its 243 square feet, in part because of the expansive windows or, in many cases, private balconies.
Most Regent suites include:
- A walk-in closet big enough to change in with dozens of hangers
- A private safe.
- A gleaming marble-lined bath with full-size tub and shower.
- A mini-bar pre-stocked with your favorite beverages.
- A bedroom (with twin beds or a European king-size bed) and a separate living room area tastefully furnished with a loveseat and comfortable armchairs with an adjustable table for dining in-suite.
- Convenient switches for directed lighting where you want it, when you want it.
- A television and video player.
- A private, teak-decked balcony with two plumply cushioned lounge chairs and a side table.
- Thickly napped, oversize towels and full-length bathrobes to wrap up in after bathing or a dip in the pool.
- As a further personal convenience a handy self-service launderette with washers, dryers and ironing facilities are provided or laundry and dry-cleaning services are also available.
- Private butler service is offered to guests in Categories B and above.
- 24-hour room service, including selections from the Compass Rose Restaurant during regular dining hours
Club Mariner Children's ProgramClub Mariner is a program offered on several RSSC ships during the summer months and the holiday seasons. Available on the Regent Diamond, the Seven Seas Mariner, the Seven Seas Navigator, and the Seven Seas Voyager, Club Mariner offers a variety of activities for children from the ages of 6 to 11 and 12 to 17. Young cruisers are divided into two age groups, and activities are designed for each group. Our Club Mariner counselors have many activities, including games, craft projects, movies, and "food fun" to make sure each child has a memorable experience. Teens help the counselor select the activities they prefer to do on their cruise. Whether cruising to Alaska, the Baltic, Bermuda, the Caribbean, or on one of our Hanukkah/Christmas sailings, young cruisers will have a fun and memorable experience to take home with them.
