Regent Seven Seas Cruises Review
A Regent Seven Seas cruise represents a luxury vacation for people who prefer the finer things. Regent Seven Seas Cruises (RSSC) has been chosen as the world’s top-rated cruise line by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure magazine and is a leader in the six-star luxury market.
When we last checked, we counted no less than 16 awards bestowed upon the cruise line. In 2012, Regent took the award for “Best Cruise Line for Luxury Ocean Cruises” and from Condé Nast Traveler, “Best Cabins.”
Indeed, Regent Seven Seas’ accommodations are among the most spacious afloat. The smallest suite in Regent’s fleet measures 301 square feet while the largest measures more than 2,000 square feet. And all suites and staterooms, except for a few on Seven Seas Navigator, feature balconies.
Sailing to more than 300 ports around the world, Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ three ships are elegant, but not stuffy, with an informal dress code that invites guests to dress smartly, but comfortably. While most passengers are wealthy travelers in their 50s and 60s on up, the shorter routes attract a broader demographic, with some younger couples during summers and holidays, and even a few families in the mix when there are supervised activities offered for ages 5 plus.
Regent Seven Seas keeps its elegant fleet in tip top shape with frequent refurbishments and enhancements to offer its discerning guests the best of everything.
Dining On Regent Seven Seas Cruises
Love surf & turf? Prime 7 is a contemporary take on a classic steak house that’s getting raves. You can also enjoy a lovely meal in the open-seating Compass Rose dining room or in two or three other venues where the fare is on par with top establishments on land. If you’d like to dine in, no problem at all, a steward will come to your suite and lay out a white tablecloth along with silverware and china, and serve you a full-course dinner from the restaurant menu.
Life On Board Regent Seven Seas Cruises
When not in port, the pace is mellow and relaxing. If the mood strikes, join ballroom dance classes, wine tastings, bridge and bingo games, and fascinating lectures by accomplished experts in various fields, from science to foreign affairs.
Each ship has a gym and a world renowned Canyon Ranch SpaClub, plus a golf driving net. Themed cruises from time to time are focused on fine food and wine (on Le Cordon Bleu cooking cruises, for instance, chefs trained in the Le Cordon Bleu cooking method hold workshops and host a special dinner) as well as photography, music, the arts, and more.
While conversation and cocktails are the entertainment of choice for many passengers, there’s also a piano bar and live music for dancing. Visit the casino or catch one of the production shows for a medley of musical hits and other classics.
The best part? The fares are all inclusive, covering spirits and wines, nonalcoholic beverages and tips, plus free shore excursions in every port and sometimes free airfare and hotel stays as well. RSSC offers luxury as it was meant to be.
