Regent Seven Seas Cruises, the ultra-luxury cruise line, has reported its best world cruise opening booking day, with reservations doubling the previous record set for the 2022 sailing.
The line sold out of Penthouse Suites and above within a matter of hours and had the longest waiting list for a world cruise in its history.
“Our world cruises are always highly anticipated, and I am delighted with the response to our latest global voyage, especially considering the unprecedented public health challenges we are currently navigating,” stated Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “This record-breaking 2023 World Cruise launch day demonstrates people’s willingness to take long cruises to exotic lands and the substantial appetite for luxury travel our guests have and it is a testament to the unrivalled Regent experience that our outstanding crew have perfected.”
Regent’s 2023 world cruise is the line’s longest since 2011. It will explore South America, South Pacific Islands, Australia, Southeast Asia, the Indian subcontinent, the Middle East, Africa and Spain on a 143-night voyage across 72 ports of call.
Fares for the remaining cabin categories range from £60,029 per guest to £159,269 per guest. The ticket includes business-class flights, door-to-door luggage service, unlimited valet laundry, dry-cleaning and pressing, onboard medical services, visa packages, phone time per suite, a commemorative gift and more.
Montague added: “Featuring a veritable treasure trove of up to 356 free shore excursions and a focus on lesser travelled areas of the globe such as Polynesia and Melanesia, Southeast Asia and Africa’s west coast, our 2023 World Cruise is one of the longest and most exciting sailings we have ever curated. This coupled with our highly personalised onboard service, and the fact that every imaginable luxury is included, creates a truly unrivalled experience and the perfect environment for guests to create life-long memories with fellow, like-minded travellers.”
