MIAMI — After a six-year hiatus, Regent Seven Seas Cruises is bringing back a World Cruise – a 128-night voyage aboard Seven Seas Navigator.
This around-the-world voyage departs Jan. 5, 2017 from Miami.
“The expansion of our fleet allows us to take our ships to new destinations and be even more creative with our itineraries,” said Jason Montague, president and chief operating officer of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “Our World Cruise aboard Seven Seas Navigator is a fantastic new addition to our itinerary collection. It will be the trip of a lifetime as we provide guests with the rare opportunity to see the world in one luxurious voyage.”
The 2017 World Cruise begins with a one-night, pre-cruise hotel stay and gala dinner featuring lively entertainment at the historic Biltmore Hotel in Miami. After departing Miami, Seven Seas Navigator will cruise the Caribbean with a stop in historic George Town in the Cayman Islands and a call in Cartagena, Colombia before making its way to the Pacific Ocean through the Panama Canal.
After departing the canal, guests will enjoy scenic calls at several Central American coastal cities and sail along the Baja coast before calling on San Diego and Los Angeles. From there, the ship will venture to the islands of Hawaii, French Polynesia, American Samoa, Fiji and New Zealand, and explore the east and north coasts of Australia.
After sailing the South Pacific, Seven Seas Navigator will then traverse the Timor Sea en route to Indonesia before sailing across the Java Sea and Indian Ocean to Singapore. From there, guests will pass through the Strait of Malacca heading to Thailand before cruising the Andaman Sea to Myanmar, followed by four ports of call in India.
A northwestern passage across the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Oman through the Strait of Hormuz will bring the ship to the United Arab Emirates before it cruises southwardly along the coast to Oman, through the Gulf of Aden and into the Red Sea to call on Jordan, Israel and Egypt.
Seven Seas Navigator continues its global adventure by sailing through the Suez Canal en route to Cyprus, Greece and Turkey, and then cruises the scenic Dardanelles and return to Greece before taking the Messina Strait to Italy, Monaco, France and Spain. After cruising the Mediterranean, passengers will visit Gibraltar before sailing to additional ports in Spain, Portugal and the Portuguese island of Madeira.
After departing Europe, Seven Seas Navigator will make the transatlantic voyage back to Miami.
In total, Seven Seas Navigator will visit six continents, 31 countries, and more than 60 ports of call featuring 29 UNESCO World Heritage Sites on its World Cruise, and guests will be able to select from vast collection of free unlimited shore excursions in order to further explore the destinations.
