The cruise line’s Free Extended Explorations are 13 complimentary pre and post cruise vacations that can be combined on 22 cruises between October 2021 and March 2022 on two of their cruise ships, Seven Seas Explorer and Seven Seas Voyager.
The expertly curated land programs, which range between two and three nights in length, showcase destination “must-sees” while revealing local hidden treasures in iconic locales including Hong Kong, China; Singapore; and Sydney, Australia.
For example, guests could enhance a 10-night cruise on board Seven Seas Voyager sailing February 19, 2022 by enjoying a free three night pre-cruise Authentic Buenos Aires land program, as well as a free three night post-cruise A Passion for Rio land program, creating a truly immersive, 16-night luxury travel experience.
Other exciting land programs include the brand-new Sacred & Scenic Tokyo tour which visits the most significant Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines in Tokyo on a celebration of Japan’s spiritual heritage; and a Winelands and Wildlife tour from Cape Town, South Africa which promises remarkable adventures combining wine tasting and big game viewing.
Alternatively, guests who do not wish to take advantage of one, or both, of the free land programs can opt to receive savings of up to $3,000 per suite.
“One of the joys of travel is being completely immersed in a new culture, being able to learn about different histories, taste new flavors and discover different ways of life,” said Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer, Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “After being starved of these simple pleasures for so long, we wanted to offer our guests the opportunity to make up for lost time and maximize their next vacation with immersive exploration experiences at no extra cost to them. FREE Extended Explorations means they can do this while enjoying the highest standards of personalized service, as well as an ever-expanding list of complimentary luxury amenities.”
