This is the perfect way to enjoy not one but two ‘bucket list’ experiences: the Last Frontier of Alaska on a fabulous six-star 2021 cruise with Regent Seven Seas, and the Rocky Mountains aboard the iconic train the Rocky Mountaineer. This will be the trip of a lifetime: an all-inclusive 13-night dream journey to the world’s pristine wilderness, last vestige of the Ice Age, enjoyed in style and luxury.
You will have everything at hand to make the most of such a trip: glacier treks by helicopter, sea plane quests for wildlife, whale watching by zodiac, dog sledding, fly fishing for salmon, and Alaskan feasts . . . everything you ever dreamed of on an Alaskan adventure, and as a CountryClubuk Member you save or more per person . . .
Now is definitely the time to plan a trip to Alaska. This really is one of the last unspoiled regions on earth—but the changing climate is making it also one of the most threatened places on earth.
Everything is included: your luxurious suite with your private veranda on the 350-suite Regent Seven Seas Explorer, return flights and transfers, excellent and unlimited wines, fine dining in a collection of gourmet speciality restaurants, up to 64 free port excursions, gratuities and more . . . including a five-night pre-cruise Rocky Mountaineer GoldLeaf holiday . . . all that is left for you to do is relax and immerse yourself in the joys of your travels. Furthermore, with Regent Seven Seas you have the flexibility to cancel up to 15 days prior to travel and receive a full 100% cruise credit.
You also of course have exclusive advantageous Club rates on all Regent Seven Seas Cruises. And this is one we find irresistible. The dates are May 8-19, 2021. And as a Club Member you have great rates, with your Rocky Mountaineer five-day holiday included. You will be saving from £4,050 to £5,105 per person off the rack rates—and saving some £2,500 per person on the best rates available anywhere. So please read on—and enjoy!
If ever you have wished to see for yourself the glories of Alaska’s wilderness and wildlife—the ancient glaciers, last relics of the Ice Age, the towering mountains, the breeching whales, the sea otters and wild bears, flyfishing for salmon in pristine rivers, the soaring gyrfalcons, the tundra carpeted in flowers—now is the time to go.
And this is the way to see them: travelling in supreme comfort and luxury, Champagne at hand, on a six-star cruise with Regent Seven Seas and including, for our Members, one of the world’s great rail journeys, the Rocky Mountaineer. This is a luxurious holiday, with helicopters and sea planes laid on so you can take to the air to witness the glories of the glaciers and the wildlife. It will ensure that nothing is allowed to get in the way of your unadulterated pleasure in the sights, sounds and sheer joys of Nature at its most wild and free—close up, and in total comfort.
Not in crowded high summer during the busy school holidays, but in mid-May, at the very start of the Alaska high season, when the Rocky Mountains are bathed in early summer sunshine and the riches of Alaska pass before your eyes as the world’s most luxurious cruise ship, the beautifully appointed all-suite, all-balcony, six-star Regent Seven Seas Explorer, reveals the glories of the Inside Passage. She will take you on an exciting journey from Vancouver to Victoria, amid breathtaking sights.
We know the ice is melting, the centuries-old glaciers are shrinking, and each year the scenery changes. This will certainly be the experience of a lifetime—particularly so when our Members can exclusively enjoy the five-day Rocky Mountaineer Gold Leaf pre-cruise rail trip included in the price of their cruise.
The itinerary is fabulous: our voyage covers all the iconic, must-see elements of Alaska, taking the Inside Passage from Vancouver and returning by way of the Outside Passage, making all the unmissable ports of call: Ketchikan, Juneau, the Icy Strait Point (Hoonah), Skagway, Sitka, the Hubbard Glacier, Wrangell and Victoria.
And our rail journey takes the historic route from Banff to Vancouver amid the beauties of the early Fall. This is surely the best way to see the Rocky Mountains! We shall travel First Class through the legendary Spiral Tunnels to Komloops, Lake Louise, Rogers Pass in the Glacier National Park, the Thompson River, the Cisco Crossing, the Rainbow Canyon, the Fraser Canyon and Hell’s Gate—all historic names to inspire our imaginations while the reality of being surrounded by spectacular mountains and dramatic canyons amid a blaze of colour captivates our senses afresh.

After all, where else can you face the exhilaration of paddle boarding among the glaciers? Feel the wind and ice on your face as you dog sled down a mountain? Feast your eyes on bears snapping in the river at salmon under the blues of a seemingly endless sky?
At each port of call you can take as many excursions as you wish—and have energy for!—among the variety of adventures, sheer luxury and discovery.
Take, for examples, the Mendenhall Glacier and Whale Quest; the Tongass Rainforest Expedition; the Cruise to George Inlet and Crab Feast; the White Pass Scenic Railroad; the Chilkoot Trail Hike and Float Adventure; the Sea Otter and Wildlife Quest; the Five Glacier Seaplane Exploration; the Taku Glacier Adventure by Air, Water and Ice; the Evening Whale Watching Quest; Neets Bay Bear Watch by Floatplane; the Bering Sea Crab Fishermen’s Tour; the Dog Sledding on Mendenhall Glacier; Fly-In Fly Fishing for Salmon; Historic Gold Mining and Panning; the Eagle Preserve Adventure and Cruise; Skagway by Streetcar; and so much more. And as always with Regent, you can choose a strenuous or a relaxing style of excursion—it’s your choice.
Most are free of charge—and even the fantastic additional excursions including helicopter and sea plane flights are extremely affordable—particularly when you factor-in your exclusive Club savings. And of course, all that you require aboard Explorer is generously, no-holds-barred free of charge.
So if it is your pleasure to enjoy a glass of chilled Champagne with canapés on your private balcony each evening as the sun sets red over yet another glittering, glacier-cloaked mountain, consider it done: a bottle will arrive, on ice, at the appropriate moment. Whole Alaskan king crabs and Maine lobster? Foie Gras au Sauternes or Homard Rôti et Mousseline de Saint-Jacques? Fresh truffles and foie gras? Caviar with your scrambled eggs? All are yours for the ordering. Private dinner for two in your suite? Certainly: any time of day or night. Roulette? The casino is open for play. Cognac and cigar? Time to visit the Connoisseur Club. Golf? Tennis? Cabaret? A good book or film? Swimming? Sunbathing, iced cocktail to hand? All are at your disposal.
You have only to ask once, and your preferences are remembered—and there is no need to worry about carrying a wallet on board ship; it is all taken care of. Fares include all drinks, meals and speciality restaurants, excellent wines and premium spirits; return flights and transfers; unlimited shore excursions (which with other cruise lines can really add to the costs); all onboard activities including guest lectures, fitness programmes and entertainment; 24-hour room service and in-suite dining; free Wifi, films and music; and all gratuities. Everything is planned so you can enjoy yourself, no worries.
For the savvy traveller the inclusive price of all these often makes a Regent Seven Seas cruise work out financially more advantageous than cruises where you must pay for things separately. As you can tell, these are important benefits—particularly with these seriously advantageous Club savings—on this holiday our Members are saving from £4,042 to £5,105 per person, depending on your chosen suite. You are warmly invited to join us, and enjoy!
