“We thoughtfully design world cruise itineraries to bring guests to sites they desire to explore, ranging from iconic destinations to the hidden gems that can only be accommodated on a cruise of this length,” said Jason Montague, Regent’s president.

“Guests embark on world cruises to discover many destinations in one voyage with immersive experiences, visit museums, see historical sites, appreciate local arts and culture, and enjoy exclusive shoreside activities offering a unique way to understand our world.

“On this 2021 voyage, guests can visit 56 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in ports like Colombo, Sri Lanka, Jerusalem, Israel and Limassol, Cyprus.  What’s more, we feature 11 overnight stays in some of the world’s premier destinations so world cruisers feel fully immersed in these ports of call.”

World Cruise Highlights

Lost Empires
Journeying deep into the picturesque Caribbean islands before crossing the Panama Canal to explore South America’s west coast, this leg of the voyage will include visits to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Chan Chan - an ancient adobe city built by the predecessors of the ancient Incas - as well as Peru’s Machu Picchu, Pisco’s Nazca Lines and Easter Island’s moai statues.

Untouched Islands
Sailing through turquoise waters between French Polynesia, New Zealand and Australia, guests will encounter beautiful beaches, pristine islands and majestic marine life, especially at lesser-known places like the Bay of Islands, a small and stunning district of New Zealand’s Northland region featuring 144 islands. Other highlights include exploring the Great Barrier Reef and the 74 island wonders that comprise Whitsunday.

Ancient Sands
Making her way from Indonesia to Oman, Seven Seas Mariner will visit Asian destinations that are unlike any other, including Fujairah. The only one of the UAE’s seven Emirates not located on the Arabian Gulf, the destination is set amongst the beautiful Hajar Mountains and surrounded by the clear blue waters of the Gulf of Oman. Compare that landscape to that of Petra, home to the famed Wadi Rum desert and ruins of Petra, which is lapped by the Red Sea.

Mythical Shores
In the Mediterranean, guests will visit Limassol, where they can stroll on a beautiful chalk-like coastline on Governor’s Beach; Amalfi; and the lesser known Furore. Known for its magnificent fjord, it is a natural fortress that is hidden from the world and only lit by the sun in the afternoon.

Overnight stays are scheduled in Lima, Peru; Hanga Roa, Easter Island; Auckland, Brisbane, Bali, Singapore, Mumbai, Dubai, Luxor (Safaga), Jerusalem and Istanbul.
