Regent Seven Seas Cruises® Capitalising on Demand for Luxury Cruising Among Australians & New Zealanders

March 26, 2021 Cruise News No Comments Email Email

Regent Seven Seas Cruises®, the world’s leading luxury ocean cruise line, is witnessing an increase in local demand for luxury cruising, following record bookings for its 2022/2023 Voyage Collection and a heightened interest in closer-to-home itineraries.

“It’s clear both from conversations with our guests and from our recent record booking days that the desire for luxury cruising is as strong as ever. As we sail towards our 30th anniversary in 2022, we have received exceptional feedback from Australian and New Zealand travellers for our newly released sailing collections and value-add offers,” said Steve Odell, Senior Vice President & Managing Director, Asia Pacific at Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

The cruise line’s Sydney headquarters recently enjoyed its largest WAVE season ever, following record bookings for Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ 2023 World Cruise and 2022-2023 Voyage Collection launches. In just two hours of going live, the Voyage Collection surpassed the total number of bookings received by nearly 40% on last year’s launches.

Hoping to tap into travellers’ pent-up desire for longer holidays, Regent Seven Seas Cruises, has now launched Free Extended Explorations. This new value-add offer allows guests to enhance and extend their holiday by up to 6-nights, at no extra cost, with Pre- and Post-Land Programmes. For example, travellers can enhance the 18-night Tokyo to Singapore voyage onboard Seven Seas Explorer® by enjoying a free 3-night pre-cruise Vibrant Tokyo land programme, as well as a free 3-night post-cruise Discover Singapore land programme – creating a truly immersive, 24-night luxury travel experience.

A trend that has played into Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ recent success locally is the desire from travellers for more personal space, both onboard and ashore. With the cruise line’s five vessels carrying no more than 750 guests, the perfectly-sized ships offer one of the highest space-to-guest ratios in the industry. In addition to expansive social and dining areas, Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ sprawling suites come with some of the largest balconies at sea. Serviced by dedicated suite attendants, guests always have a comfortable, private sanctuary to return to after a day of exploring ashore during a small-group shore excursion.

The luxury cruise line is also experiencing a greater demand for closer-to-home sailings around Australia, New Zealand and Asia. Itineraries onboard Seven Seas Explorer are booking fast for her inaugural season in local waters commencing at the end of 2021.

With over US$450 million (AU$580 million) spent on constructing the elaborate, 375-suite ship – including over an acre of marble and an enviable US$7 million (AU$9 million) art collection, it is no surprise that Seven Seas Explorer has been hailed as The Most Luxurious Ship Ever Built™.

“Seven Seas Explorer will truly deliver a level of luxury never seen before in the region. What sets her apart is her expansive, all-balcony and all-suite accommodation, access to unrivalled personalised service provided by our dedicated staff, and her extremely lavish interiors,” said Mr Odell.

For those truly wanting to experience the ultimate ‘suite life’, the crown-jewel of Seven Seas Explorer is the Regent Suite. At 412 square-metres, the suite is one of the biggest at sea, and features two bedrooms, a living room and a dining room, two rare Picasso lithographs, an US$250,000 (AU$320,000) custom Steinway piano designed by Dakota Jackson and an in-suite spa retreat.

Slated to arrive in Sydney on 19 December 2021, Seven Seas Explorer is set to complete voyages between Sydney and Auckland before heading towards Asia in late January. Guests can discover hidden gems in their own backyard, such as the pristine Whitsunday Islands in Australia, and the exceptional wine region of Hawkes Bay in New Zealand.
