Five Experiences On A Regent Luxury Cruise That You Won’t Believe Are Free

On an all-inclusive, luxury cruise, you might ordinarily expect main restaurants, buffets, a few different wines and soft drinks to be included, but not much else.

That’s not the case with Regent Seven Seas Cruises, where every luxury is included, such as free air travel and free unlimited shore excursions in every port of call.

This is where the greatest value comes from booking an all-inclusive cruise with Regent Seven Seas Cruises. Whereas on other cruise lines you could easily spend £150 per day on shore excursions, Regent gives you a multitude of options of how to explore each of the 450 destinations its ships visit.

For example, in Aqaba, Jordan, one of the most popular free shore excursions is a thrilling off-road adventure through Wadi Rum. Also known as the Valley of the Moon, this starkly beautiful landscape is simply breathtaking. Your off-road vehicle will take you through stunning natural arches, past prehistoric rock engravings and to the camp of a Bedouin tribe, where you can join the families for a cup of mint tea to discuss nomadic life.

For those looking to learn more about local life, there’s no better way than learning the local language and engaging with everyday activities. Regent offers the opportunity to learn French with a Bordelais for free, including a tour of graceful Bordeaux with your expert guide who will encourage you to ask lots of questions and order your coffees and ice creams using your newly learnt language skills.

If you are more interested in nature and animal spotting, join a whale watching and wildlife quest in Juneau, Alaska, which attracts humpback whales in their hundreds throughout the summer months. Whales have been spotted on this shore excursion on every trip for the past 15 years, so you are almost guaranteed a sighting! As well as humpback whales, orcas, harbour seals, sea lions, porpoises and bald eagles are regularly spotted against the majestic backdrop of snow-capped peaks and glaciers.

Looking to warmer seas, discover the underwater world that surrounds Barbados on an Atlantis Submarine Adventure. Take in the abundance of sea life, spectacular coral formations, marine plants and colourful tropical fish from the comfort of an award-winning submarine with air-conditioning.  You’ll even visit a ship-wreck 150 feet beneath the sea as you explore the wide expanse of the sea floor in front of your eyes.

One of the must-visit places in 2020 is Kotor, and Regent has plenty of free shore excursions to keep you occupied while your ship is in port. One favourite is the Classical Performance in Prcanj and Kotor Walking Tour. In the mysterious and atmospheric Our Lady’s Temple of Prcanj, between the gilded altars, an orchestra will begin a stirring performance for your small group. After a delightful locally caught seafood lunch, a boat will take you back to Kotor, where an expert guide will lead you by foot to the town’s greatest landmarks.
