“Shore excursions are particularly important in order to experience the most of Alaska, and Regent Seven Seas Cruises offers up to 43 free, unlimited shore excursions on our seven-night Alaska voyages,” said Jason Montague, president and CEO of the cruise line. “And with our limited-time Book Now Bonus offer, travelers receive a generous shipboard credit to apply toward some incredibly breathtaking, supplementary experiences while sailing aboard Seven Seas Mariner. Throughout, guests will enjoy impeccable personalized service, a variety of fine dining, and exhilarating enrichment for a luxury Alaska adventure like no other.”
For example, the July 5, 2017 voyage will cruise up to Hubbard Glacier’s more than 325 ft.-high face so guests can potentially witness iceberg calvings. Guests can also try their hand at panning for gold when calling on Skagway; hike and marvel at Tongass National Forest, the world’s largest temperate rainforest, at Sitka; cruise George Inlet and savor a fresh-from-the-sea Dungeness crab feast at Ketchikan; and spot humpback whales and marine wildlife aboard a catamaran at Juneau. These are just a small sample of the enriching, immersive free shore excursions that Regent Seven Seas Cruises guests can enjoy.
Guests can apply their $500 shipboard credit toward Regent Choice options, a curated collection of extra-special, immersive experiences. Due to their uniqueness, individual or small-group basis, and extraordinary nature, Regent Choice experiences carry an additional charge. With the shipboard credit, guests can cement a Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ Alaska adventure among their most unforgettable lifetime moments.
On the same July 5, 2017 voyage aboard Seven Seas Mariner, guests can utilize their shipboard credits on a three-hour, six-guest salmon sport-fishing excursion from Sitka, where they have additional option to process and ship their catch home. From Skagway, guests can choose a relaxing, rafting ride through the Valley of the Eagles to catch sight of raptors swooping for fish among towering mountains, hanging glaciers and lush forestry. Of course, no visit to Alaska is complete without seeing indigenous bears, and a short floatplane ride to Prince of Wales Island will take guests to view the largest population of black bears in their ideal habitat. But, no greater Alaska bragging right exists than mushing a dogsled atop Mendenhall Glacier like an Iditarod racer via a short helicopter ride from Juneau.
The Book Now Bonus offer is valid for bookings made from April 1 through May 31, 2017 on all 2017 Alaska voyages. U.S. and Canadian travel agents also will receive up to a US$200 gift card for each new booking they make for their clients in these regions. Guests must register the code “Book Now” at the time of reservation in order to receive the offer. The Book Now Bonus offer is also combinable with the doubled Ambassador Offer for 25th Anniversary voyages, public National Account promotions, and Seven Seas Society savings of up to $700 per suite for returning guests.
