Regent Seven Seas Cruises
Regent Seven Seas Cruises is an ultra-luxury cruise line based in Miami. Originally founded in 1990 with just one ship it was for a while owned by Prestige Cruises International (who also owned Oceania Cruises) until September 2014 when Norwegian Cruise Line bought Prestige Cruises International.
The fleet consists of four ships with a fifth ship due for delivery in 2020. They have approximately 1,789 berths in total available for passengers. The ships are smaller in size than usual cruise lines, allowing them to visit smaller ports in regions around the world. Because of this, the cruise line can offer much more exclusive shore excursions than the larger the cruise lines.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises are one of the most all-inclusive cruise lines – with very low crew:passenger ratios and nearly all elements of the cruise included in the fare. They include the premium beverages or dining options, unlimited wifi, staff gratuities, shore excursions and all airfares – usually business class! Only shopping or spa treatments aboard the ships usually require payment.
The cruise line is based in Miami, where their parent company Norwegian Cruise Line are based, however their ships generally don’t homeport there and instead move around the world region-to-region depending on season and demand. Their cruises are usually a little longer in length than the standard cruise lines and may last from 14-28 nights, with a rare 7-night voyage between regions.
