Regent Seven Seas Cruises will return to sailing with the inaugural season of Seven Seas Splendor departing the UK in September 2021.
The voyage will mark the cruise line’s return to service, as well as Seven Seas Splendor’s inaugural season, with the ship having only completed two cruises with guests after being christened in February 2020. The cruise line intends to preserve originally planned itineraries, as much as the global health environment at the time allows, presenting guests with an exceptional cruise and destination experience.
The first cruise in her inaugural season has Seven Seas Splendor scheduled to set sail September 11, 2021, for an 11-night voyage, round-trip from Southampton, England visiting Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Ireland. After her initial voyage, the ship will transition to explore the beautiful Mediterranean before crossing the Atlantic to sail in the Caribbean. While many of her sailings are already sold out, there are still opportunities to cruise later in Seven Seas Splendor’s European season, and in the Caribbean in early 2022.
To ensure a smooth and safe resumption of operations, voyage suspensions for the remaining vessels in the fleet have been extended through September 30, 2021. This includes Seven Seas Explorer, Seven Seas Mariner, Seven Seas Navigator, and Seven Seas Voyager.
With a phased return to sailing for the rest of the fleet, luxury travelers will once again be able to enjoy the Regent experience with the peace of mind that comes with the line’s multi-layered SailSAFE health and safety program.
the SailSAFE health and safety program is a robust and science-backed strategy that creates multiple layers of protection against Covid-19. The program was developed with guidance from a team of public health and scientific experts including the SailSAFE Global Health and Wellness Council.
By visiting RSSC’s website, guests and Travel Partners can see an overview of current requirements to sail – such as all guests and crew being fully vaccinated at least two weeks prior to departure and having universal testing – all of which the cruise line believes will provide a uniquely safe and healthy vacation experience. The cruise line has confirmed that these and other requirements will be in place until a time when the protocols can be confidently adjusted. Regent will constantly monitor the global health environment to protect the safety and security of guests, crew and communities visited. Specific requirements to sail will be communicated directly to guests closer to the time of sailing.
