(9 a.m. EDT) — Regent Seven Seas Cruises is offering its first world cruise in several years in 2017; today, the luxury cruise line announced that it would sail an even longer around-the-world voyage in 2018.
Seven Seas Navigator, which just came out of a multimillion dollar refurbishment, has been chosen to sail a 137-night cruise across the Southern Hemisphere, beginning on January 8, 2018. It will sail roundtrip from Los Angeles and visit five continents, 28 countries, 64 ports of call and 28 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In a statement, company president Jason Montague cited the popularity of the 2017 world cruise as the reason for going forward with a second round-the-globe sailing the following year.
The route takes passengers across the Pacific Ocean to Hawaii and other Pacific islands, Australia and New Zealand, through Southeast Asia, and across the Bay of Bengal to South Africa. From there, the ship will cross the Atlantic to visit South America and the Caribbean before traversing the Panama Canal and stopping in Central America on the way back to L.A. The full voyage ends on May 25, 2018.
Complimentary excursions are available in all ports of call. In addition to Regent’s regular fare inclusions (tips, drinks, etc.), world cruise passengers will receive first-class airfare, luggage service, a visa package, unlimited laundry service, satellite phone time and onboard medical services.
Fares start at $59,999 per person for a Deluxe Window Suite.
