Seven Seas Mariner by Regent Seven Seas Cruises

What’s the newest trend in luxury cruising? Longer cruises. We just recently sailed on Regent Seven Seas Cruises‘ 718-passenger Mariner. We discovered that longer cruises are a trend right now, while short cruises are sinking in popularity! Nancy Yale, who is a luxury travel advisor at Cruise and World Travel ( spoke to us at length about the new upswing in longer cruises and World Cruises.

“The World Cruises for Regent, Oceania and other cruise lines went on sale and sold out in just one day – the World Cruise for 2023 sold out overnight,” said Ms. Yale, a top cruise agent whom the prestigious Virtuoso luxury travel association refers to as a “cruise icon.” She added: “Also, people have been working remotely, and now they know they can even work on a cruise ship. People are going on longer cruises; they don’t want to go for one week; they are even combining three back-to-back cruises.” 

So what to do about it? Well, it’s time to book your suite and go on a cruise! Regent Mariner offers beautiful suites, where guests can elevate their travel experience and make their cabin a home-away-from-home. If all goes well and you completely de-stress and get into a relaxation zone – which is totally possible – your comfy cabin just might be your “om” away-from-home!

Let’s take it from the top.

The Master Suite on Deck 9 measures 2,002 square feet including a 71-square-foot balcony and a 727-square-foot forward balcony. You’ll find Park Avenue chic on this spectacular suite featuring rosewood furniture, luxury fabrics in creams and neutrals, and a crystal chandelier – plus a personal butler to provide an exceptional level of service at every stage of your trip. It’s also an ideal suite for hosting parties.

We did a quick tour of this suite with one of its lucky guests – she is very health-conscious, and every day likes to have a protein drink for lunch. So, she brought along her Super Ninja blender and protein powder – while the ship’s staff provided her with nuts, raisins, and plenty of fresh fruits. She is also finicky about her coffee – and brought her own beans for her in-room coffeemaker. Now that’s how to travel!

The Grand Suite on Deck 11 measures a total of 987 square feet, with a dining area perfectly ensconced within an art-filled living room. The master bedroom is large and inviting, with its soothing color scheme conducive to a peaceful night’s rest, and there are two marble bathrooms to round out this spacious suite.

Both the Master and Grand Suite amenities including dinner with a senior officer; guaranteed reservation nightly in the specialty restaurant of your choice; in-suite dining; complimentary cocktail party (make sure to bring the balloons!) and all the amenities listed in the Mariner Suite and Seven Seas Suite below.
