Regent Seven Seas Cruises: Best Value in Luxury Cruises?
Regent Seven Seas Cruises makes a bold claim that they are the best value in luxury cruises.
And interestingly, they seem to be willing to back up their claim each year with written comparisons between themselves and other luxury cruise providers.
While I am one who strongly feels that you shouldn’t judge a luxury travel experience solely by price, as so many are want to do, it certainly makes sense to bring the value proposition into the decision making process.
I’ve seen these claims from the folks at Regent Seven Seas Cruises over the years, but I was reluctant to put too much of our reputation on the line until Carol and I had actually sailed with them.
Well, we had the chance last summer as we sailed with Regent Seven Seas Cruises on a wonderful 11-night journey from Vancouver to Anchorage on the recently refurbished Seven Seas Mariner. We LOVED the journey. The photograph above is one that I shot through the trees in the little village of Hoonah on the Icy Point Strait.
You Can’t Judge a Book by its Cover
One of the mistakes luxury travelers make when considering Regent Seven Seas Cruises is to imagine that all prices are created equal and that the inclusions with one cruise line might be the same as another.
But with Regent Seven Seas Cruises, that couldn’t be further from the truth as they are the most inclusive luxury cruise line on the planet.
In fact, you would be hard pressed to spend a dime when sailing with Regent Seven Seas Cruises. And remarkably, that also includes business-class airlines tickets when sailing on one of their overseas journeys.

While the itinerary is certainly a major factor in deciding this cruise line or that, all things being equal, Regent Seven Seas Cruises has stepped into the position as our go-to 5-star luxury cruise line.
We’ve got a few more luxury ocean cruise lines to sample before we place all of our weight behind that statement, but Carol and I are very confident of this: if Regent Seven Seas Cruises has an itinerary that makes your heart go pitter-pat, you will be hard pressed to find a 5-star luxury cruise line that can bring you a better value than Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
