Nobody needs a walk-in closet, a stone and marble bathroom or a dedicated attendant to cater to their every whim and fancy, but everybody wants them. These are the little extras that take a place from being comfortable to indulgent, and a vacation from being fun to unforgettable. Cue the Unrivalled Space at Sea experience by Regent Seven Seas Cruises, an assurance from the cruise company to go above and beyond what is strictly necessary for comfort in order to create an unparalleled sense of luxury on board.
Personal space is usually a rare commodity on cruise ships, but not here. Besides walk-in closets, Regent’s all-suite fleet has rooms that go up to 412sqm with some of the largest private balconies at sea, and as many as seven dining options to ensure that there is never a wait during meal times. With a staff to guest ratio of just 1:1.5, service is always impeccably attentive. There’s also enough manpower to provide one-on-one training sessions in the fitness centres, butler service for guests in the Penthouse categories and above, as well as a concierge team to satisfy any unusual or off-menu requests.
For the ultimate Regent experience, cruise with Seven Seas Explorer or Seven Seas Splendor, the two largest ships in Regent’s fleet. Both have entertainment and dining facilities spread out across 10 decks and can carry up to 750 guests in 375 rooms. These are the ships with the iconic Regent Suite, a spacious 412sqm, two-bedroom space perched at the highest point of the vessel. It features a private in-suite spa – a first in cruises – where you’ll get to enjoy unlimited services during your journey, three walk-in closets and a custom-made Tresse Minipool on the 120sqm balcony.
Splendor and Explorer will be plying the seas on four noteworthy journeys in 2022 and 2023.
