Published Itineraries to be Preserved for Majority of Ships, plus New Sailings Created in the Mediterranean and Caribbean
SOUTHAMPTON, May 27, 2021 – Having already announced the September return of Seven Seas Splendor®, Regent Seven Seas Cruises® has confirmed its resumption of sailing plan for the rest of The World’s Most Luxurious Fleet, which will see all five ships back exploring the oceans by February 2022.
The cruise line intends to preserve already published itineraries as much as possible, beginning with Seven Seas Explorer® on October 16, 2021, from Venice, Italy, as the ship takes over five of Seven Seas Mariner’s® published cruises, with Mariner going into a technical dry-dock. Seven Seas Mariner will resume sailing December 18, 2021, from Miami, Florida, as will Seven Seas Navigator® on January 6, 2022. Finally, Seven Seas Voyager® will return on February 15, 2022 from Barcelona, Spain.
As part of the return to sail plan, 17 new sailings in Europe and the Caribbean have been created for Seven Seas Explorer and Seven Seas Voyager, which can be viewed at RSSC.com/Regent-returns, and are scheduled to go on sale in early June 2021.
“We thought carefully about how, when, and where reuniting the entire Regent family would enable us to consistently deliver an unrivalled experience with every luxury included, as well as provide exceptional destination explorations,” said Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer, Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “We are incredibly excited that all five of our ships will be back on the ocean by early 2022, the year of our 30 th anniversary. The World’s Most Luxurious Fleet is ready to return, and our crew will be there eagerly waiting to welcome all our guests back onboard once again.”
In conjunction with today’s announcement, and while considering the global health environment, the cruise line has cancelled all sailings up to each ships’ respective restart date. Guests with impacted bookings will be contacted directly or via their Travel Advisor.
“We truly sympathise with those guests who have had their much anticipated and deserved cruise experience cancelled,” continued Montague. “We do hope however that travellers impacted by these changes can find a new reason to sail with us on our newly created cruises in the Caribbean and Mediterranean.”
