World cruise for 2025 with fares starting at £69,000 sells out BEFORE bookings open


For the fourth year running, a world cruise by Regent Seven Seas Cruises has sold out in record time, with the sailing being completely reserved prior to officially opening for bookings on June 15, 2022.

It underscores how for some the cost of living crisis is something that is happening to other people.

The 2025 sailing, which at 150 nights is the longest in Regent’s history, had fares starting from £69,389 ($85,000) per guest for a Deluxe Veranda Suite, and £191,949 ($237,000) per guest for the ‘indulgent luxury’ of a Master Suite. The global cruise, on the Seven Seas Mariner, has been reserved by loyal past guests as well as over a third of guests who will be new to Regent’s ‘unrivalled experience’.

The cruise line said that while demand was strong across all suite categories, the ship’s Distinctive Suites were the first to sell out, with guests desiring higher accommodations.

‘We have received unprecedented interest in this sailing and this phenomenal booking record shows once again that people, just like the world itself, are now open to travel and are not going to wait around and let opportunities pass them by,’ said Jason Montague, President and Chief Executive Officer Regent Seven Seas Cruises. ‘It is remarkable that luxury travellers continue to sign up, or want to remain on the waitlist, in case some guests cancel their reservation between now and the sailing in two and a half years’ time – people simply want to explore as much as possible.’

Regent’s 2025 World Cruise – ‘Away in Wonder’ – embarks on January 7, 2025, from Miami, Florida, to San Francisco, California, and discovers ‘incredible destinations’ in South America, the South Pacific, Australia and New Zealand, Asia and Alaska.

The additional voyage sails the Mexican Riviera from San Francisco to Miami, visiting ports in Costa Rica, Colombia and more, along with a full transit of the Panama Canal.

Montague continued: ‘We have great news for those guests who unfortunately did not have their 2025 World Cruise booking confirmed due to strong demand, as we will open early reservation requests on July 6, 2022, for our 2024-2025 Legendary Journeys Collection. These Grand Voyages will offer longer sailings of up to 83 nights spanning the Arctic, Asia, Australia and the Mediterranean, and will officially be on sale July 20.’

Regent previously broke its world cruise opening day record in July 2021 when the cruise line’s 2024 World Cruise went on sale.
