Regent Seven Seas Cruises is offering a World Cruise in 2017 for the first time in six years.
The 490-guest Seven Seas Navigator will operate a 128-night around-the-world voyage departing Miami on Jan. 5, 2017. The cruise will visit six continents, 31 countries, and more than 60 ports of call. The itinerary includes 29 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, which can be explored during free unlimited shore excursions to places such as Petra in Jordan, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, Léon Cathedral in Nicaragua, and Elephanta Caves in India.
“The expansion of our fleet allows us to take our ships to new destinations and be even more creative with our itineraries,” said Jason Montague, president and COO of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
The 2017 World Cruise begins with a one-night hotel stay and gala dinner at the Biltmore Hotel in Miami. After departing, Seven Seas Navigator will cruise the Caribbean with stops at Grand Cayman and Cartagena, Colombia, before transiting the Panama Canal to the Pacific Ocean.
The all-inclusive luxury ship will visit several Central American cities and sail along the Baja coast to San Diego and Los Angeles and then to Hawaii, French Polynesia, American Samoa, Fiji, New Zealand and Australia.
The Seven Seas Navigator will then traverse the Timor Sea en route to Indonesia before sailing across the Java Sea and Indian Ocean to Singapore. The ship then cruises to Thailand, Myanmar, India, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Jordan, Israel and Egypt.
The ship will sail through the Suez Canal en route to Cyprus, Greece and Turkey, and then on to Italy, Monaco, France, Spain, Gibraltar and Portugal. After a trans-Atlantic crossing, the ship will conclude the global voyage back in Miami.
Guests booked on the full voyage can participate in three exclusive experiences — a Honolulu city tour and Kualoa Secret Island Luncheon, a Sahara experience in Dubai, and a gala dinner at the Café de Paris and casino visit in Monte Carlo.
Also available are Adventures Ashore land programs that let guests explore destinations in small, private groups hosted by a guide. At the end of the tour, guests rejoin the ship and continue the voyage. These one- to three-night tours are available to Angkor Wat from Bali, Bagan from Yangon, Myanmar, and the Taj Mahal from Cochin, India.
Bookings for the 2017 World Cruise open at 9 a.m. EST July 15. Fares start at $54,999 per person when booked by Oct. 1. Travelers who book the full voyage also get extra amenities, including the pre-cruise hotel and gala at the Biltmore, free first-class air, the exclusive shoreside events, door-to-door luggage service, a free visa package, unlimited laundry including dry-cleaning and pressing, free unlimited Wi-Fi throughout the ship, free phone time per suite, a commemorative gift, and free onboard medical service.
