Mention the term luxury travel and one of the first things that come to people’s minds is a luxury cruise. Luxury cruises seemingly have it all. They combine the excitement of travel with the amenities of a hotel stay.
Cruises allow you to spend all day, for example, touring an island or swimming with dolphins, then at night enjoying live entertainment as you eat five-star cuisine. And while that all sounds like the recipe for the idyllic getaway, it’s important to note that not all cruises are created equal.
In fact, a majority of cruises, while offering the opportunity to see some of the world’s most breathtaking destinations, fall short on delivering of their promise of true luxury.
Why all-inclusive is the only way to take a cruise
When you book your cruise, you might assume that the price you pay will cover virtually all of your expenses. In fact, you might encounter cruises that claim they’re all inclusive. These all-inclusive offers typically cover your lodging, meals, and snacks, as well as some activities and entertainment. But if you plan to make the most out of your time away, you’ll likely discover that many of the things you want to do or experience come with an extra cost.
That’s because a majority of luxury cruise lines have limitations on what they consider a standard all-inclusive offerings…
Except for Regent Seven Seas.
Regent’s all-inclusive cruising is exactly what it says it is – all inclusive. That’s why when my clients ask me to help design their perfect luxury cruise, I almost always turn to Regent.
As part of Regent’s all-inclusive promise, our guests enjoy some pretty amazing amenities, including:
- Free Unlimited Shore Excursions
- Free Roundtrip Air on all sailings
- Free Specialty Restaurants and Unlimited Beverages, including fine wines and spirits
- Free Pre-Paid Gratuities
- Free Transfers between airport and ship
- Free Unlimited Wi-Fi
- Free 24-Hour Room Service
- Free In-Suite Personalized Mini-Bar
If guests are staying in a Concierge Level Suite in addition to the above inclusions they also receive:
- Free One-night stay in Luxury Hotel the night before the cruise
- Priority reservations in Specialty Restaurants
For guests staying in Penthouse Level Suites they receive all of the above amenities as well as:
- Free Business Class Air on European Voyages
- Personal Butler Service
- Car and driver at Every Port
If you were to look closely at other cruise lines, you might discover that these free offerings by Regent Seven Seas Cruises aren’t offered at all or, if they are offered, come at a cost.
But in creating the ideal luxury cruise experience for my clients, I want to make sure that you never have to worry about expenses. At the same time, I want to ensure that your cruise actually delivers on its promise of taking you to one-of-a-kind places that others can only dream of.
Regent touches all four corners of the world
One of the things I’ve discovered as a luxury travel advisor is that each of my clients have unique tastes and interests. Some folks are looking for the wild adventure that Alaska offers. Others are looking for warmer settings, such as the Caribbean. Then there are travelers who want to soak in the culture of the Mediterranean or Northern Europe.
Again, this is why I continuously turn to Regent – they offer cruise adventures to every corner of the globe. And, for folks looking for the ultimate adventure, Regent offers several world cruises. These world cruises give you the opportunity to visit up to 31 countries over the course of several months.
In other words, no matter what your definition of luxury cruise is, I’m certain that Regent will meet your needs.
And by working with a travel advisor, you can be certain that you’ll get a luxury cruise adventure that’s specifically designed to match your vision and connects you with exclusive insider access and benefits. Not only that, but as you embark on your cruise, the Travel With Stephanie team will remain in close contact with you, helping you to feel at ease even as you set sail on the open sea.
