Do you have $100,000 and four months to spare? Then get in quick to book one of the few remain cabins for Regent Seven Seas’ 128-day, around-the-world cruise departing January 2017.
The cruise, onboard the 490-passenger Regent Seven Seas Navigator, proved so popular that 70 per cent of the cabins were snapped up on the day it went on sale last month.
Fares for the cruise – Regent’s first around-the-word itinerary in six years – start from US$53,999 per person for the entry level cabin, a 28 square metre window suite. If you’d like something a little larger, prices range from US$69,899 per person for a penthouse suite all the way up to US$158,399 for the Master Suite, the most luxurious cabin on the ship.
Just about everything is included in the fare, such as specialty dining, premium alcohol, gratuities, Wi-Fi, laundry and unlimited shore excursions. There’s even a pre-cruise gala at Miami’s Biltmore Hotel to get you in the mood.
The cruise stops at 62 ports across 31 countries on six continents. The ship departs Miami on January 5 and cruises through the Cayman Islands and around Central America and Mexico, before heading across the Pacific towards Hawaii. It then calls at Tahiti, Samoa and Fiji before circling both islands of New Zealand and arriving in Sydney on February 28. The cruise continues up the east coast of Australia, then through Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Myanmar and India.
By April 2 the Navigator is in Dubai and will make its way through Oman, Jordan, Egypt and Israel before beginning the European stage of the journey, calling at ports in Cyprus, Greece, Turkey, Rome, Monaco, France, Spain and Portugal. Then it’s back across the Atlantic (via Bermuda) to arrive home in Miami on May 13.
