Regent Seven Seas Cruise Line is celebrating its 25th year at sea. Some of our TravelingMoms had the pleasure of sailing on one of the commemorative anniversary cruises in Europe and were treated to one of a kind events. Take a look at how you can experience VIP travel this year on Regent Seven Seas Cruise Line.
Regent Seven Seas is an all-inclusive luxury cruise line. I have been on many cruises, but wasn’t prepared for the Regent experience. And to ramp up my experience, I was sailing on a 25th Anniversary cruise. During its 25th Anniversary year, Regent has rolled out a few red carpet extras for guests.
Regent Seven Seas
If you are looking for a cruise line that will spoil you, show you the wonders of the world and provide all-suite accommodations, look no further than Regent Seven Seas. I would preface this by saying this cruise line is geared more towards adults. In the summer months, the Mariner Club for kids can be found on-board, and the kids on our cruise were very busy. But the atmosphere in general is more adult oriented.
Providing spaces to play bridge, read a book or put together a puzzle, the Regent line of ships are not always in “party” mode like the more family friendly cruise lines. It is a very calm and relaxing atmosphere.
In the evenings, there is only one show in the main theater at 9:30 pm and the ship is pretty quiet after that concludes. There are casinos and lounges on board, but they certainly don’t get rowdy and stay open until the wee hours.
If an adult only cruise is more your speed, Regent is the one you want. My favorite feature was that dinner is not a scheduled time in the restaurants. You can go when you want. It also is not rushed; we spent two hours dining outdoors one evening and it was quite memorable.
25 Years Of Unforgettable
As I mentioned, Regent rolled out the red carpet, literally, during their 25th Anniversary Cruise. There are still 16 cruises left this year to enjoy the big celebration.
25th Anniversary Commemorative Pin
Guests sailing on one of the anniversary cruises will receive a commemorative pin. I found this little touch to be really nice. Many guests wore them proudly the rest of the cruise.
Silver Anniversary Tastings
The food and wine on Regent is already top notch. In addition to the usual wines and spirits, you will have the chance to broaden your palette with special tasting seminars.
Ambassador Offer to Entice Past Guests
Regent is doubling the Ambassador Offer. Past guests who refer a guest on one of the commemorative voyages will receive a $400 per suite shipboard credit. This offer also includes your friends. You can treat yourself to a special excursion in port with that credit!
Social Media Experience
Regent has rolled out the social media experience to help guests on board with best practices in sharing their travel stories. They are encouraging new and return guests to share their unforgettable moments sailing with Regent via their dedicated Facebook page.
Take a look at the #Regent25 hashtag on Instagram and Facebook to see what guests are experiencing. You will certainly find my European journey well documented.
Compass Rose Galley Tour and Lunch
Guests sailing one of the commemorative voyages have the unique opportunity to experience a one-of-a kind galley tour and enjoy a full lunch buffet. This happens during a sea day in the Compass Rose dining room.
Starting from inside the restaurant, a red carpet guides you into the galley, giving a VIP feeling while touring the massive kitchen. Inside the galley, you will have the chance to meet the crew creating your amazing meals each day.
Be sure to eat a light breakfast; this buffet is a feast. I would say this was a really neat experience. Taking a peek behind the scenes was a real treat for this avid cruiser.
Choose from 16 anniversary voyages remaining this year that sail across stunning destinations. From Alaska to Asia and Europe to the Tropics, you will certainly enjoy special on-board moments.
