“These voyages represent the most stunning and ambitious collection in our company’s history. We are sailing to even more legendary and lesser-known destinations highlighted by included immersive land experiences in every port,” said Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
“Whether searching for an exciting adventure, a new way to unwind or for something entirely different, we invite luxury travellers to find it with Regent and discover their next unrivaled experience, with the highest levels of elegance, comfort and hospitality on board.”

There will be three Grand Voyages, including a unique European Tour that combines the best of Northern Europe and the Mediterranean on Regent’s newest ship, Seven Seas Splendor, debuting in February 2020.
The line is also sailing a unique Asia-Pacific route for their 2022 ‘Elements of the Pacific’ world cruise on the Seven Sea Mariner and it has the line’s most Asia-Pacific ports visited ever.
