Regent Seven Seas Cruises celebrated its return to cruising in the U.S. and the Caribbean with Seven Seas Explorer’s call to Miami, Florida.
Guests embarked the ship on Nov. 15, 2021, in Miami for an 8-night journey through Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras and Costa Rica, ending in Colon, Panama. Seven Seas Explorer, helmed by Captain Rosario Vasta, will explore the Caribbean until March 2022 when she returns to Europe.
“We are absolutely delighted to sail from the global home of cruising once again,” said Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer, Regent Seven Seas Cruises, in a press statement. “Our return to Miami is another huge step forward as we re-introduce our fleet to the seas and offer our guests the unrivaled Regent experience once more.”
Cruising with the cruise line’s enhanced SailSAFE Health and Safety Program, which includes 100 percent vaccination of both guests and crew—Seven Seas Explorer is Regent’s second ship to return to sailing, having joined Seven Seas Splendor, which has been enjoying its inaugural season in Europe since Sept. 11, 2021.
The next ship in The World’s Most Luxurious Fleet to resume sailing will be Seven Seas Mariner on Dec. 18, 2021, from Miami, Florida, followed by Seven Seas Navigator on Jan. 6, 2022, also from Miami. Finally, Seven Seas Voyager will return on Feb. 15, 2022, from Barcelona, Spain.
Guests and Travel Partners can see an overview of current requirements to sail including all guests and crew being fully vaccinated at least two weeks prior to departure, which the cruise line believes will provide a uniquely safe and healthy cruise experience. These and other requirements will be in place until a time when the protocols can be confidently adjusted, and Regent will constantly monitor the global health environment to protect the safety and security of guests, crew and communities visited.
