Regional ports including Eden and Norfolk Island are among the list of destinations due to be visited for the first time ever by Regent Seven Seas Cruises during its 2017/18 season in Australian waters, according to the line’s newest season launch announced this morning.
The two new ports feature on the schedule of the ultra-luxury line, which will see the 700-passenger vessel Seven Seas Voyager spend over a month in Australian waters during its annual visit to this part of the world. Four itineraries are on sale – an 18-night journey from Singapore to Sydney which cruises the Queensland coast; a 14-night voyage from Sydney to Auckland and an 18-night sailing from Auckland to Bali. The latter two itineraries can be joined together into a 32-night voyage from Sydney to Bali, via New Zealand.
The ship will appeal to guests who enjoy cruising in extreme levels of comfort and opulence, served by nearly 450 crew members. Over the course of the new season, the line’s four ships will visit 335 ports in 98 countries. Highlights of the season will see eight crossings of the Panama Canal while Regent’s newest ship – Seven Seas Explorer – will make its debut in Northern Europe and the Baltic.
Guests travelling on Regent Seven Seas Cruises enjoy unlimited shore excursions throughout their cruise, all meals and beverages including fine wines and spirits, unlimited wi-fi internet connectivity onboard, all gratuities covered, ground transfers between the ship and a pre/post cruise hotel, among other perks.
Fares for the line’s 2017/18 Australian sailings start at AUD$12,500 per person twin share.
