Where in the World is Regis Going Now?

We're not sure where he is right now, but since last Friday—Regis Philbin's final day on television's daytime talk show, Live with Regis and Kelly—rumors are rampant about what he'll be doing next. Here's one place we know for certain he'll be: on March 13, 2011 Regis will head east—to the Far East that is, as a guest speaker aboard Crystal Cruises' Hong Kong to Osaka segment of its World Cruise—the "Kingdoms of Silk and Jade" Crystal Serenity sailing overnights in Hong Kong before visiting Xiamen, Shanghai (overnight), and Dalian, then heads inland to Beijing for a complimentary three-day inland adventure, followed by calls in Seoul/Incheon (overnight), Nagasaki, and Osaka (overnight).

Winner of multiple Emmy Awards and the Guinness World Record holder for "most hours on camera," Philbin is known in the U.S. for his 50-plus years career of hosting TV talk shows, game shows, and a plethora of other entertainment programming. As part of Crystal's award-winning enrichment program, guests will have an opportunity to see, and interact with, the ever-affable "Reeg," who will be on board to speak about his life and career. Guests can experience his trademark wit "live" without the cameras, and have their own chat session with him during an audience Q-and-A. Philbin has had a long-time rapport with Crystal, having sailed as a celebrity guest speaker more than 10 years ago. His wife, Joy, will accompany him on the sailing.

"Given all the opportunities open to him, we're thrilled Mr. Philbin wanted to come back aboard for another star-treatment 'Crystal Experience'," says Crystal's Vice President of Entertainment Bret Bullock. For more information, visit CrystalCruises.com.
