Luxury on offer for those willing to give cruising another crack




Australians willing to have another crack at ocean cruising may be tempted by the chance to sail on the Seven Seas Explorer with Regent Seven Seas Cruises in late 2021 and early 2022. 

The luxury ship will conduct a series of ‘Close to Home’ sailings in Australia and New Zealand as part of her inaugural Asia-Pacific season.

The Seven Seas Explorer has been dubbed "the most luxurious ship ever built" and will offer 14 all-inclusive itineraries in local waters between October 2021 and April 2022.

“With the recent disappointment of cancelling Seven Seas Explorer’s three early 2021 sailings in Australia and New Zealand due to unprecedented global public health challenges, we’re delighted that we will be welcoming the most luxurious ship ever built later in the year and into 2022 with some truly incredible, ‘Close to Home’ sailings,” said Lisa Pile, vice president of sales, Australia & New Zealand, for Regent Seven Seas Cruises. 

“Seven Seas Explorer delivers a level of luxury never seen before in this region, and we can’t wait to share it with discerning local travellers. From her all-balcony, all-suite accommodation, sublime cuisine and lavish interiors, to one of the highest space-to-guest ratios at sea and a nearly one-to-one staff-to-guest ratio ensuring impeccable service, sailing with Seven Seas Explorer is an experience guests will treasure forever.”



Regent Seven Seas Cruises boasts that it is the only cruise line offering guests free unlimited shore excursions in every port, free unlimited beverages, including fine wines and spirits, free specialty restaurant dining, a complimentary in-suite liquor and mini bar replenished daily, pre-paid gratuities, free valet laundry service and unlimited wifi. 

Guests booking a Concierge Suite or above can also enjoy a complimentary pre-cruise one-night hotel package, as well as a hotel-to-ship transfer.

Guests can choose from an extensive suite of shore excursions, such as an indulgent epicurean adventure in Tasmania sampling gourmet cheeses, creamy chocolates and  local wines, or a horse-riding expedition along the secluded beaches of New Zealand’s Waipu coast.

For those looking to venture a little further afield, Seven Seas Explorer’s 32-night Asian Enchantments sailing will be an extensive exploration of some of South-East Asia’s most fascinating and exotic destinations. Departing from Bali, Indonesia, on February 4, 2022, guests can fully immerse themselves in the region with several overnight stays in cities including Singapore; Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; Bangkok, Thailand; Hanoi, Vietnam; Hong Kong, China; and Osaka, Japan.

The Seven Seas Explorer’s fittings and finishes, including 473 chandeliers, an  art collection, including pieces by Chagall and Picasso, and more than 4,262 square metres of marble.

Onboard amenities range from the relaxing pool deck and sports deck with a golf net, putting green, paddle tennis court and bocce court, to the Serena Spa and Wellness Centre and Culinary Arts Kitchen, where guests can take cooking masterclasses from international chefs.

Restaurants include French cuisine in Art Deco surroundings at Chartreuse, Asian dishes at Pacific Rim, steak in Prime 7, a casino, several elegant lounges with views and the Constellation Theatre for musical revues and more.
