Leading the pack is Regent Seven Seas Cruises. For years their included shore excursions have been a particular highlight of the Regent experience, and many of their cruises also include a complimentary three night pre- or post-cruise stay with a programme of sightseeing. If that wasn't appealing enough, the brand new 2020 Concierge Collection takes the Regent experience even further, with a carefully curated selection of overland extensions.
In Alaska, four sailings aboard Seven Seas Mariner - the 4th June San Francisco to Vancouver voyage plus the 17th June, 1st July and 9th September Vancouver to Seward voyages - have been paired with the luxurious Rocky Mountaineer rail journey in Canada. Enjoy GoldLeaf service, spectacular views and fascinating commentary whilst spending time exploring Calgary, Banff National Park and cosmopolitan Vancouver.
In Europe there are two opportunities to travel from London to Venice on the iconic Belmond Venice Simplon-Orient-Express to join Regent's newest vessel, the Seven Seas Splendor. The later departure leaves the UK on 22nd October and combines with a 10-night voyage showcasing some of the highlights of Italy and the Adriatic, including Dubrovnik, Sicily and the Amalfi Coast. The first departure of 2020 leaves London on 9th July, and also includes a two night stay in romantic Verona with an unforgettable night at the opera. This combines with the 10 night Adriatic and Greek Islands sailing including Split, Kotor, Santorini and Mykonos to make an amazing two week break.
