Regent Seven Seas Cruises has launched a series of shore excursions for this summer, focused on architectural feats and sustainability.
The 10 Behind the Design tours offer insights into some of the world’s most famous architecture in Europe. They include the Royal Library and the Blue Planet aquarium in Copenhagen, the Equinor office building and the Munchmuseetin in Oslo, and the La Villa Mediterranée and MUCEM in Marseille. The tours are expected to be expanded beyond Europe later in the year.
More than 150 Eco-Connect tours have also been added across the globe. These invite guests to engage with local groups and businesses to learn about how they are working to conserve and sustain their surrounding environment.
The tours, many of which provide an educational element, offer guests the opportunity to take part in a variety of experiences. These include sampling organic wine at a sustainable vineyard in Bordeaux, helping to create a paradise for sloths to roam in Puntarenas, and gaining a new appreciation for diverse flora and fauna on a hike through the Bach Ma National Park.
The line’s president and chief executive officer Jason Montague said: “We understand that while our guests love the all-inclusive and superior service standards found on board our luxury fleet, their primary reason for travel is to discover and explore.
“That’s why our incredible destinations team has worked tirelessly over the last two years, creating unique and immersive ways to explore hundreds of destinations with completely fresh perspectives and unique experiences.”
Many of the tours are included as part of Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ free unlimited shore excursions programme, while others start from $299pp.
The new tours are scheduled to roll out across the fleet from this spring.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises is also offering free upgrades and a 10% deposit with its new Upgrade & Explore offer.
