We shall fly from the UK for an overnight stay in Miami, USA, ready to board our six-star cruise ship from noon on February 23 in the Port of Miami. Then, as the sun goes down over the coast of Florida we shall sail out of Miami harbour, setting course for a private island in the Bahamas—our first taste of the tropical sun, sand and sea holiday ahead. We shall have time to relax and explore the ship—which is exceptionally large for the small number of passengers she carries. We shall wine and dine to our hearts’ content, in gourmet restaurants and in our own private suite whenever we prefer, remembering that on board Regent Seven Seas Cruises we can simply leave our wallets behind—everything we need is complimentary, from sundowner Champagne cocktails to foie gras and caviar and delicious six-star cuisine in four exceptional restaurants and more.

As dawn breaks we shall be sailing into delightful Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas. On this uninhabited tropical island of we can relax into the Caribbean warmth and pace of life: stroll along the white-sand beaches, snooze in a hammock beneath swaying palms, swim and snorkel in warm, crystal-clear waters, go kayaking, take a paddle boat—or simply unwind in the golden Caribbean sunshine and enjoy a favourite cocktail before a delicious fresh beachside barbecue lunch.

That evening we shall be back on board Voyager as she sails into the Caribbean sunset and we shall have the evening and the following day on board ship, cruising the Bahamian Waters and exploring the delights of Voyager as she makes her way to San Juan, Puerto Rico, a top Caribbean cruise destination—and rum capital of the world. This is like an older New Orleans transported to an island paradise. It is Puerto Rica’s capital, a kaleidoscope of colourful sights, bright character and sparkling sea. Christopher Columbus landed here in 1493, during his second voyage, and he it was who named the island ‘San Juan Bautista’, in honour of John the Baptist. History is one angle of interest: there is also the Caribbean idyll of our imagination, of coral sand beaches, crystal lagoons, delicious seafood—and of course the famous Bacardi rum, made on the island since the 16th century, and pina colada, the cocktail which was invented here. A visit is a good excuse (if one were needed) to enjoy a genuine cocktail of choice. Here you might sail in a tall ship, the Amazing Grace, or take a catamaran day trip with gourmet luncheon and stopover in a tropical island for swimming and snorkelling, or take a culinary walking tour punctuated by refreshments of traditional Puerto Rican delicacies and artisan coffees, or explore the old city, the Spanish forts and the luxuriant tropical gardens.

Back on board Voyager we shall dine in luxury and watch the islands slip by from our private veranda or from Voyager’s spectacular viewing lounges and decks as we sail on through the night to another charming tropical island, St Thomas. This popular island has spectacular, mountainous beauty, some of the most gorgeous views in the Caribbean, miles of sandy white beaches lapped by gentle waves, and offshore islands where we can swim, snorkel, perhaps go scuba diving and wreck diving—the crystal waters, craggy coastline and stunning beaches are ours to explore. So too are the smart, cosmopolitan shops and restaurants of our port of call, Charlotte Amalie, the Caribbean’s tax-free shopping haven, where designer shops line the narrow streets and sleek yachts line the harbour.

St Thomas, part of the US Virgin Islands, will get us in perfect mood for the elegant French Caribbean which lies ahead. Next morning we shall awake to a vision of the pride of France in the Caribbean, St Bart’s. From its postcard harbour to its 20 spectacular beaches, many travellers consider this beautiful little island to be the closest thing to heaven on earth. Rolling hills, picturesque villages and broad valleys are surrounded by coral reefs, gin-clear waters and blue-green lagoons. A favourite retreat for the rich and famous, St Bart’s is a byword for natural beauty, delicious cuisine, chic boutiques and relaxed ambience. With an international renown which far outstrips its 10 square miles, this tiny island at the top of the Leeward Isles is a magnet for seekers of fine Caribbean living and French flair. With fashion boutiques from Armani to Zegna, St Bart’s rivals the Rue du Fauborg St-Honore in Paris, except everything is duty- and tax-free, so you can finally buy that Cartier watch or Hermès bag without guilt.

With fashion boutiques from Armani to Zegna, St Bart’s rivals the Rue du Fauborg St-Honore in Paris—except everything is duty- and tax-free, so you can finally buy that 10,000-euro Cartier watch without guilt. A galaxy of boutiques awaits, including designer-inspired Laurent Effel at a fraction of the usual prices. No need to buy though—your complimentary Regent excursions will take you to experience the sophisticated traveller’s pleasures: discovering the island’s spectacular beaches, or sailing in the clear blue waters, perhaps riding through shaded jungle trails—or taking your own line among the designer shops and pavement cafés of Gustavia, our port of call, a charming village and harbour, bustling with small boats and luxury yachts. To take a leisured six-star cruise to St Bart’s is a brilliant way of visiting this oh-so-stylish Caribbean island, since there are no direct scheduled flights from the UK.

Then it’s on to the largest of the Windward Islands, the wondrous island of Dominica. As Mr Rochester, hero of Jean Rhys’s novel ‘Wide Sargasso Sea’, toiled up the path to his honeymoon home halfway up a Dominican mountainside, ‘Too much blue, too much purple, too much green. The flowers too red, the mountains too high, the hills too near.’ Perhaps he might have said, more prosaically, ‘Too beautiful for words’. Dominica is overwhelming in its physical presence. From Columbus to the travel writer Patrick Leigh-Fermor, all have been in awe of Dominica and its brooding magnificence. The lush environment of this ‘Nature Island’ is indescribable. Volcanic mountains disappear into a dense, cloud-covered spine, forested ribs of ridge and valley, carved out by rivers rushing down to the sea. With much of its ssurface covered in some of the finest rainforest of the region, there is little flat land to develop—hence it is pristine, and the inhabitants live mainly on the leeward coast. Travellers can luxuriate in its ‘otherness’—dive into pools beneath waterfalls and soaring cliffs covered in vines and the red and yellow claws of the dramatic heliconia plant. This is a Caribbean island to enjoy Nature at its best. You will see the famous waterfalls, hot springs, the remains of volcanos, luxuriant gardens, lake-fed rushing streams and canyons, all breathtaking panoramas dotted with resplendent tropical birds, perhaps even the Dominican national bird, a Sisserou Parrot.

That night we shall relax, wine and dine on Voyager, ready for our last Caribbean port of call, which could not be more of a contrast to Dominica: this is Philipsburg, the Dutch capital of St Maarten. This busy island is the smallest land mass in the world to be shared by two nations—the smaller southern ‘half’ is part of the Dutch Antilles and France owns the rest. This is a gentle, fertile landscape of soft pastures grazed by horses and cattle, with green and hawksbill turtles nesting on the shores, good fishing and even better yachting. And Regent have a surprise for us here: we might just manage a race in one of Dennis Conner’s world-famous America’s Cup Twelve-Metre Class yachts, Stars and Stripes, Canada II or True North I. A race in this class of racing yacht, the fastest in the world, is a memorable yachting experience. The downside is that this is not a guaranteed excursion by any means, due simply to the limited number of people these iconic multi-million-dollar yachts can take—and this has been voted Best Shore Excursion in the Caribbean for 10 consecutive years. The insider trick is to turn up on the day in case of a cancellation, which happens more often than not. (If you want a guaranteed sail in one of the ‘Twelves’, we’ll book you in for a later cruise!).

What is guaranteed is that for two more days and nights we shall luxuriate in the floating palace that is Voyager as she cruises first the Atlantic Ocean and then the Bahamian Waters. This will be time to soak up the sun on board ship, and to make sure of having experienced all that this stylish vessel has to offer. As with so much about Regent Seven Seas Cruises, the choices are great, the style elegant and relaxed, with freedom to be yourself. 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 over yet another beautiful Caribbean seascape, consider it done: a bottle will arrive, on ice, at the appropriate moment. Whole Maine lobster and Alaskan king crabs? 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: at any time of day or night, served course by course, just as it should be. Roulette? The casino is open for play. Cognac and cigar? Time to visit the Connoisseur Club. Golf? Tennis? History lecture? Cabaret? A good book or film? Swimming? Sunbathing, iced cocktail to hand?

For the savvy traveller, the all-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 voyage our Members are saving from £3,122 to £3,524 per person off the full rates, depending on your chosen suite. And so, for some much needed winter sunshine in style, join us!

WINE, DINE AND LIVE IN STYLE ON THE LUXURIOUS,
ALL-SUITE, ALL-BALCONY CRUISE SHIP, SS VOYAGER

The Regent staff-to-guest ratio of 1 to 1.6 provides one of the industry’s highest levels of personal service.

WITH REGENT, IT’S TRULY, GENEROUSLY ‘ALL INCLUDED’

Regent Seven Seas is the cruise line which invented ‘all-inclusive’ and has won every accolade: Best for Luxury; Best for Luxury Cabins; Best for Excursions; and a host of awards too numerous to list here.

Regent have the most spacious, relaxing accommodation, cuisine so haute it is heavenly . . . and they are totally, generously, no-holds-barred all-inclusive, meaning everything, from unlimited shore excursions in every port of call, to return flights, to excellent wines and spirits, and more:

Free flights;
Free unlimited shore excursions
Free night’s hotel stay;
Free transfers between hotel, ship and airport;
Free unlimited beverages including fine wines and spirits;
Free open bars and lounges plus in-suite mini-bar replenished daily;
Free prepaid gratuities;
Free fine dining in a choice of speciality restaurants;
Free Wifi throughout the ship;
Free 24-hour room service
All onboard activities.

All 350 suites are more spacious than many competitors—and this living space makes the entire cruise feel more tranquil: Voyager is not a place for stress or queuing.

As for the food, there is gourmet cuisine throughout the ship. Guests can choose to lunch or dine in fabulous restaurants—all serving excellent and distinctive dishes. Guests enjoy Parisian dining in the new Chartreuse restaurant, steaks in the surroundings of a private London club in Prime 7, the contemporary look of fine dining restaurant Compass Rose (only plates by Versace are good enough for this restaurant!), a casual, intimate dining experience with Italian flair in Sette Mari at La Veranda, which has open-air dining—the ultimate sea-view table!—as well as the Pool Grill for day-long delicacies. Speciality coffees are served in the new-look Coffee Connection. Cognac and cigars are offered in the leather-seated, wood-panelled Connoisseur Club. The choices are wide, and nothing is too much trouble for the excellent butlers and waiters aboard ship.

The spa is the celebrated Canyon Ranch Spa Club, suitably ritzy in style and decorated with silk fabrics, crystal and twinkling lights. The treatment menu is vast and impressive.

As well as excellent expert lectures, entertainment ranks high on Voyager: the Constellation Theatre has the vibe of an upmarket jazz club and the nightly shows—more elaborate than on many other vessels—range from American jazz to London dance, a Parisian-style burlesque that blends dance, song and spectacular costumes, and Tony Award-winning music and comedy from Hollywood’s golden age.

If you think it all sounds just a little expensive, you might think again. Because Regent’s fares include flights, multiple shore excursions, excellent 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 line ship twice the size. This is even more obvious when you factor-in your exclusive savings as a Member of CountryClubuk.

All rates and details are correct at time of going to press, but may change without notice. Bookings are subject to availability and are made subject to our full Club Rules, terms and conditions, and those of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
