THE ADVANTAGES OF CLUB RATES As a Club Member you have advantageous rates on all Regent Sev- en Seas Cruises. Even here, on a cruise giving you the cream of the Caribbean, both in itinerary and in date, you have savings of some £3,000 per person (saving £6,000 for two). Rates are per person for two sharing, with all the same all-inclusive benefits of passengers paying full fare, including free flights and transfers. This cruise is an extremely popular itinerary and will book up soon. The rates are: Veranda Suite H: Full fare £8,679. CCUK £5,645. Deluxe Veran- da Suite G2: Full fare £8,829. CCUK £5,767. Superior Suite F2: Full restaurants—all serving excel- lent and distinctive dishes. As well as pan-Asian cuisine in Pacific Rim, guests enjoy Parisian dining in Chartreuse, steaks in the atmosphere of a private London club in Prime 7, the contemporary look of Compass Rose (with plates by Versace) and the feel of the 1960s Italian Riviera in La Veranda. For hands-on cook- ing it’s the Culinary Arts Kitchen, lessons included! The spa is the celebrated Canyon Ranch Spa Club, suit- ably ritzy in style and decorat- ed with silks, Swarovski crys- tals and twinkling lights. At 750 sq ft, the spa is the fleet’s largest, spanning two levels, with its own infinity pool. Numerous stylish lounges include The Observation Lounge, with floor-to-ceiling windows for ocean views. As well as excellent expert lec- tures, entertainment ranks high on Explorer: the two-tier 694-seat Constellation Theatre has the vibe of a top- line club, with nightly shows. If you think it all sounds just a little expensive, you might think again. Because Regent’s fares include flights, multiple shore excursions, ex- cellent wines, spirits and other drinks, speciality restaurants, free Wifi and gratuities, the cost per person per day can actually work out less than taking a smaller suite on a premium cruise liner twice the size—this is even more obvious when you factor-in your exclusive Club savings. If ever a luxury cruise ship started life at the top of the ‘rich list’, the £350 million Seven Seas Explorer is the one. Built in Genoa, Italy, christened by a Princess in Monaco in 2016, she is ‘the most luxurious ship ever built’, costing multi-millions of pounds. So celebrated was her launch that she was the subject of a TV documentary. With artwork and sculp- tures everywhere, lined with Carrera marble, glittering with chandeliers, Explorer has masterpieces enough to stock an art gallery. Then there is her space and crew- to-passenger ratio, which on a ship is essential to make you feel relaxed. Space to breathe, and wind down, is vital on a truly relaxing cruise: Explorer is not a place for queuing. All the cabins are suites, and what also sets Explorer apart is that every suite has a balcony. Even the lowest- class balconies are 10ft deep, large when compared with other ships. All suites include indulgent touches—marble bathrooms with rainfall show- er, walk-in wardrobes, European Sleep Slumber beds and French toiletries. You might not require the showcase £8,000-per-night Regent Suite’s 4,443 sq ft of space. But the fact is that all of the 375 suites on Explorer are much more spacious than most of her competitors. As for the food, this is gourmet cuisine. Guests can choose to lunch or dine in six WINE, DINE AND LIVE IN STYLE ON THE WORLD’S MOST LUXURIOUS CRUISE SHIP 135
