Change is in the air — and at Regent Seven Seas.
The luxury cruise line has been making heads turn with its new all-inclusive programs, and now you can find out what all the commotion is about. The recently remodeled Seven Seas Mariner heads north to the icy waters of Alaska this spring, and with it comes some unprecedented new perks.
Our editors have hunted down a 7-night cruise filled with scenic port stops and an unforgettable luxurious trip through the inside passage, starting from $3,506 in a suite stateroom. The tip of the iceberg is that this rate includes free airfare and free unlimited shore excursions as part of Regent’s new ultra all-inclusive pricing.
When they say all-inclusive, they mean it. This cruise package covers the cost of food and beverages, wine and premium spirits, round-trip airfare from over 20 major cities to the embarkation port in Seward, gratuities, choice of shore excursions and entertainment at sea. With all these extras, you may be tempted to leave your purse or wallet behind.
After sailing past the Hubbard Glacier, the first port of call is in Sitka, an ideal place for spotting humpback whales, puffins and other native species of seabirds. Or, opt for the sea otter and wildlife excursion, one of several options included in your package.
Next, visit the bustling capital city of Juneau before traveling through Tracy Arm, another pristine fjord. Then the ship anchors in Skagway, the northernmost point of the inside passage, where a free excursion on the White Pass Scenic Railroad will leave you breathless.
From there, it’s on to the “Salmon Capital of the World,” Ketchikan, followed by a final journey through the infamous inside passage before the ship docks in Vancouver. The ship sets sail on May 20, and first-time cruisers will also receive up to $500 in onboard spending credits per suite, if booked by March 31.
All prices are per person, in based on double occupancy. Government taxes are additional. Air fuel surcharges may apply.
It’s hard to think of a spring visit to icy fjords when the weather outside is already downright frigid.
