Regent Seven Seas Cruises has introduced two new shore excursion concepts that take their travellers to new destinations and landmarks.
The two new tour concepts, Behind the Design and Eco-Connect, will roll out across the fleet from summer 2022, with a total of 10 Behind the Design tours for the initial launch and over 150 options Eco-Connect options.
Behind the Design tours are exclusive to European destinations in Europe’s summer season, with further international destinations expected to be announced later in the year. These tours will offer insights into some of the world’s most captivating and brilliant architectural feats. Travellers can expect to browse modernistic buildings Royal Library and Blue Planet with an architectural historian in Copenhagen, Denmark; discover how the Equinor and Munchmuseet buildings have transformed Oslo’s skyline in Norway; or get an insider’s understanding of the challenges in building La Villa Mediterranée and MUCEM, two avant-garde landmarks in Marseille, France.
Eco-Connect tours provide guests with the opportunity to engage with local groups and businesses to learn about their conservation and sustainability efforts. They can discover how converting to biodynamic and organic farming further elevates the quality of the esteemed wines at Château de La Dauphine in Bordeaux, France; or get up close with sloths at a sanctuary in Puntarenas, Costa Rica to learn more about these animals and how deforestation has affected their natural habitat.
“We understand that while our guests love the all-inclusive and superior service standards found onboard our luxury fleet, their primary reason for travel is to discover and explore,” said Jason Montague, president and CEO, Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
“That’s why our incredible destinations team has worked tirelessly over the last two years, creating unique and immersive ways to explore hundreds of destinations with completely fresh perspectives and unique experiences.”
Many of the tours are included as part of Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ Unlimited Shore Excursions, with select experiences offering another level of engagement as Regent Choice Shore Excursions, starting at US$299 per guest.
