Sailing around the world
On July 14, the 2024 World Cruise officially sold out within three hours. The 132-night voyage is set to explore Central America, the US west coast and Hawaii, South Pacific Islands, Australia and New Zealand, Southeast Asia, the Indian subcontinent, the Middle East, the Mediterranean, and Bermuda. Seven Seas Mariner will visit 31 countries and four continents, offering access to more than 60 UNESCO World Heritage sites. Prices ranged from £54,949/$73,499 for a Deluxe Veranda Suite, up to £144,669/$199,999 for a Master Suite. “For our guests, the 2024 World Cruise represents so much more than just a cruise vacation – it’s a return to a normality,” said Jason Montague, president and CEO of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
The demand continues to rise
Seven Seas Mariner is considered a mid-size ship, with 445 crew and up to 700 guests. While the pandemic has made staycations more popular, the outlook for traveling abroad by cruise ship looks promising in 2021. “With a waitlist longer than we have ever experienced, we knew that the 2024 World Cruise was going to be popular, but this outstanding response has surpassed all expectations and is without a doubt our strongest World Cruise launch day ever,” said Montague. Not only big companies want to sail, start-up lines such as Atlas Ocean Voyages also plan to join the competition.
