For the fourth year running, Regent Seven Seas Cruises has sold out its world cruise in record time, with the sailing being completely reserved prior to officially opening for bookings on June 15.
The sailing, which at 150 nights is the longest in the cruise line’s history, is on Seven Seas Mariner. Fares start from £69,389 per guest for a deluxe veranda suite, and £191,949 per guest for a master suite.
It embarks on January 7, 2025 from Miami, and guests will sail three oceans, visiting 97 ports of call in 25 countries on five continents. They will cover 36,295 nautical miles over more than five months.
More than a third of sales came from those who haven’t sailed with Regent Seven Seas Cruises before. The line said demand was strong across all suite categories, with the ship’s Distinctive Suites selling out first.
Approximately a quarter of guests chose to add an additional 18-night sailing to the 2025 World Cruise, sailing the Mexican Riviera from San Francisco to Miami, and including a full transit of the Panama Canal.
President and CEO Jason Montague said: “We have received unprecedented interest in this sailing and this phenomenal booking record shows once again that people, just like the world itself, are now open to travel and are not going to wait around and let opportunities pass them by.
“It is remarkable that luxury travellers continue to sign up, or want to remain on the waitlist, in case some guests cancel their reservation between now and the sailing in two and a half years’ time – people simply want to explore as much as possible.”
