Our preferred partner, Regent Seven Seas Cruises®, is the provider of the world’s most inclusive luxury experience. We asked Randall Soy, Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing, for his personal top choices for 2018 travel.
Randall’s Top 2018 Travel Picks:
All-Inclusive Mediterranean: 7 Nights from $7,499
Begin your Mediterranean journey in comfort with FREE Roundtrip Business Class Air. Arrive in style from 29 gateway cities across the U.S. and Canada, as well as complimentary ground transfers between airport and ship. Book a Concierge Suite or higher and a 1-NIGHT HOTEL PACKAGE is included, featuring breakfast, porterage, and transfers.
Then experience the very best of the Mediterranean either aboard Seven Seas Explorer®and Seven Seas Voyager® — both ships are exceedingly luxurious, spaciously intimate and the perfect way to explore this glamorous region. Instead of traveling with thousands of guests, our ships offer a refreshing option with up to 370 spacious suites, making for a beautifully intimate sailing with never a line or a wait and a crew that is dedicated to delivering highly-personalized service.
Enjoy a new destination nearly every day with the added benefit of only unpacking once. History buffs take in the view from the vantage point of medieval bridges, while art lovers gaze at magnificent frescoes. Gourmands journey to the top of the rolling hills of award-winning vineyards for a sip of the first harvest fashion-seekers eye the ornate shop windows of the world’s foremost fashion designers and beachgoers worship the sun above the from sands that cradle dramatic cliffs.
Thousands of years of history unfold layer by layer at every port of call. Here you will find the greatest concentration of historical sites, extraordinary architecture and fine art in the world. Imagine stepping back in time at the 15th-century Palazzo Corvaia and the Odeon in Taormina, and relishing the opportunity to meet with master glassblowers near Antibes and watching them create their signature works. You could also treat your palate with a typical tapas lunch served with sangria in Palma de Mallorca, as well as sample delicious wines in Tuscany. In the Mediterranean, you really can see it all with FREE Unlimited Shore Excursions.
All-Inclusive Alaska: 7 Nights from $4,799
Guests aboard the all-suite, all-balcony Seven Seas Mariner® experience true luxury, with every detail taken care of on an unforgettable journey to Alaska. Only Regent Seven Seas Cruises® offers FREE UNLIMITED SHORE EXCURSIONS, allowing guests to get the most out of your exploration of America’s Last Frontier. From cruising George Inlet and indulging in a crab feast to taking the entire family zip-lining at the Klondike Adventure Park, this is cruising as it was meant to be.
The Last Frontier is not just the state nickname. More than 580,000 square miles make up the 49th state and it remains generally unpopulated and without many roads, making it the perfect destination to be explored by sea. Each day Seven Seas Mariner® brings guests closer to remote towns where wildflowers tower just as tall as the mountains in the distance and lush, rain-drenched forests give way to breathtaking views of magnificent glaciers. With both volcanoes and tundras, and more than 3 million lakes, this is not a conventional vacation – but one that is sure to be filled with unforgettable moments.
Among the ports of call is Sitka, where guests may encounter curious sea otters, and in Juneau they are sure to spot whales near Mendenhall Glacier. From Skagway, they can make their way to Haines, known for being the heart of the Valley of Eagles and in Ketchikan guests may find themselves just a few steps away from witnessing black bears feeding on salmon.
