Two years ago, my standards for cruising completely changed when I went on my first luxury cruise. Ever since then, I have made it a personal goal to turn mass-market cruisers into luxury cruise lovers. Once you go on a luxury cruise, you will never look at cruising the same way. So join me all this week for an in-depth look at the best luxury cruise lines on the market and get in touch to begin planning your trip today!
As a Virtuoso agency, we have a ton of fantastic luxury cruise connections – one of my personal favorites is Regent Seven Seas, which is a truly all inclusive cruising experience. Everything is included on a Regent sailing: all food and drinks, gratuities, airfare, one night hotel stay, and shore excursions! It is a fantastic value that only adds to your overall cruising experience.
Instead of stressing over a big bill at the end of the trip (“I had how many piña coladas?!”), you can just kick back and relax knowing that you really don’t have to spend any more than the price you pay up front.
Not only is the all inclusive experience a notable upgrade from mass-market cruising, but Regent’s three ships are in a league of their own in terms of fantastic accommodations. The ships are between 490-700 passengers, and 97% of the suites (every room is a suite!) have private balconies. To give a better idea of the size: the smallest cabin is 301 sq ft with a spacious bathroom and walk-in closet. Now that is a room size that I could live with while cruising the Mediterranean for two weeks.
Regent’s itineraries span beyond just the Med – I recently booked a couple on an Alaska sailing, which, after airfare and veranda cabin, came out to the same price as a competitor cruise line, but it included ALL of their shore excursions! Regent Seven Seas is no misnomer – the ships sail the world, from Asia/Pacific to Africa/India, South America, the Caribbean and everywhere in between.
We are proud partners of Regent cruises, which means we’re able to get our clients valuable amenities – like on board credits or other special perks. Also, select sailings are hosted by a Virtuoso representative (called Voyager Club Sailings), which allows guests booked through a Virtuoso agency to attend complimentary cocktail parties, shore excursions, and have an onboard liaison to assist with your extra amenities. We’re a Virtuoso agency and happy to get clients this special perk on select sailings. Ask me today about planning your first luxury cruise onboard Regent, I’m happy to help!
