Regent Seven Seas Cruises
Country-club casual is the mantra of this upscale, midsize ship line that succeeds in being fancy without being fussy. Accommodations are spacious; the 490-passenger Navigator is all-suite, and the 700-passenger Voyager and Mariner are the cruise world’s only all-suite, all-balcony ships. Wine and spirits are complimentary. Regent is affiliated with Le Cordon Bleu (the Voyager and Mariner have LCB-operated restaurants) and oceanographer/environmentalist Jean-Michel Cousteau, who is on board select sailings. Creative theme cruises range from the arts to chocolate.
New and Newsworthy: The cost of all Regent cruises will include airfare and shore excursions in 2010.
Price: Weeklong Caribbean cruises from $2,495 per person, including air and shore excursions.
