Regent Seven Seas gives new pre-/post-cruise options in 2015/16
Regent Seven Seas Cruises' winter 2015/16 sailings in the Mediterranean, Asia and Africa introduce new options as part of the line's included pre- and post-cruise land programs which offer a free three-night hotel stay and guided tours. For example, travelers on voyages beginning or ending in Bangkok or Singapore can visit the ancient temples of Angkor Wat and explore the jungles of central Cambodia.

RSSC is offering these three-night land stays complimentary to travelers booked in a Concierge Suite or higher. The customized land adventures, valued at $1,999 per person, are also available for those booking a Deluxe Suite for a special rate starting at $699 per person.

Plus, the line introduced eight new 'grand voyages,' ranging from a 35-night Cape Town to Miami sailing to a 72-night South American cruise round-trip Miami. The 49-night Singapore to Tokyo grand voyage introduces two new ports: Boracay Island, known for its beaches, and Jeju, South Korea, home to Hallasan National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  

There are eight maiden calls in total, with El Guamache on Venezuela's Margarita Island; Fort-de-France, Martinique; Pointe-à-Pitre, Guadeloupe; Santa Marta, Colombia; Khasab, Oman; and Shimizu, Japan.

Seven Seas Voyager will sail across three continents with voyages in Africa, Asia and Europe. During six Asia sailings, the ship will offer an extensive number of overnights in ports like Yangon (Rangoon), Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Hong Kong, Xiamen, Shanghai, Beijing, Kyoto, Tokyo, Osaka and Hanoi.

Seven Seas Voyager repositions to the Mediterranean with a 21-night Dubai to Barcelona sailing on May 2, 2016, that includes the new port of  Khasab and overnights in Safaga (for Luxor), Egypt, and Haifa, Israel.

Seven Seas Mariner begins the season traversing the South African coast before setting off on a 14-night sojourn from Cape Town to Rio de Janeiro and exploring South America, from Patagonia to the Amazon River. The ship spends much of April 2016 sailing the Caribbean before heading through the Panama Canal and north to Alaska.

Meanwhile, Seven Seas Navigator will sail10 Caribbean voyages ranging from seven to 10 nights, with a special 25-night trip to the Amazon highlighting the season. After a couple months in the Caribbean, the ship will return to the Mediterranean and cruise the French and Italian rivieras, including a 10-night voyage departing April 13, 2016, that visits Port-Vendres, Marseille, Saint-Tropez, Monte Carlo, Portofino and Cinque Terre.
