Regent Seven Seas: Alaska Cruise – Value Can’t be Beat!

Regent Seven Seas Cruises have continued their award winning ways in 2010.   Regent was awarded the “Best Large-Ship Cruise Line” in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards again, and has won the “Best Large-Ship Cruise Line” in the Virtuoso Performance Awards.

2010 has been Regent’s best year to date too.  Rates tend to go up after the ships start to fill (85% of sailings had price increases after first announced, with 55% having multiple increases), and there are very few price reductions during the year (only 6 sailings had price reductions); so it’s always best to book as early as possible to secure the lowest possible price.

And early booking makes the value of Regent’s all inclusive cruises even more fantastic!

Sometimes, folks feel the price of Regent luxury is out of their range. But Regent offers pampering you can afford!

Regent is luxury plus. It has mostly balcony cabins, and fewer passengers than the bigger cruise ships. Plus, it really offers an “all inclusive” product, with free air, ship excursions, as well as premium soft drinks and alcohol.

Here is a comparison chart of Regent’s 2011 Alaska sailings listed against comparable sailings on Holland America, Celebriy, and Princess cruises. When you add in the extras you have to pay (so that you are comparing apples and apples), a June 2011 sailing to Alaska onboard the Regent Seven Seas Navigator is $4499, vs. Holland America ms Valendam at $4245, vs Celebrity Millennium at $5144, vs. Princess Island at $4056.

If you’re paying roughly the same, why would you not choose the luxury line?

Don’t you deserve the best?
