Patrick was in Melbourne Sunday with her team for functions with travel agents, prospective passengers and media.
Tuesday she hosted a media luncheon and inspection in Sydney and Thursday she will be in Brisbane before the 48,075gt ship sails to Tahiti.
Patrick is highlighting the all-inclusive fares that cover the alternate dining venues, unlimited shore excursions and, most recently, free access to the Internet for passengers travelling in concierge-level suites and higher.
Seven Seas Mariner was the first all-suite, all-balcony ship when she entered service in 2001 and is one of the most spacious ships afloat, with 700 passengers and a crew of 445.
Patrick said Australia is one of Regent Seven Seas Cruises' top international markets.
