Regent Seven Seas Cruises Offers More Liquor on 2007 Voyages

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL., June 12, 2006 - Regent Seven Seas will ring in 2007 with good cheer - literally toasting its guests with a new inclusive liquor policy. Topping off its already acclaimed dining options and personalized service, the recently re-branded luxury cruise line will offer select complimentary wine and spirits at all bars and restaurants fleet wide on every sailing. "Luxury Goes Exploring" in 2007 with worldwide cruises from seven to 111 nights in length - reaching 21 new ports of call from Kotor (Montenegro) to Yasawa (Fiji).

"As part of our re-branding to Regent in March, we're instituting an inclusive liquor policy across the fleet for all 2007 cruises," said Mark Conroy, president of Regent. "Our World Cruises already have this inclusive liquor policy, and our guests have told us how much they like it. In fact, we've noticed how the policy has contributed to the air of conviviality aboard, with more people getting out of their suites socializing. It's this open, intimate spirit of camaraderie we wish to foster on all Regent voyages."

While most aspects of Regent Seven Seas' re-branding will be in place in 2006, final touches will be applied in 2007 with the updating of staterooms/suites (including installation of flat screen TVs) and an expanded roster of personalized Regent Travel ConciergeSM offerings.

Luxury Goes Exploring New Ports of Call
Recipient of the 2005 Cruise Critic "Cruise Innovation Award" for being "the luxury line with the most innovative, path-finding itineraries," Regent Seven Seas will continue its trailblazing ways in 2007 with the addition of 21 new ports of call in Asia, Africa, the South Pacific, Europe, the Caribbean/Mexico and South America.

The 700-guest all-balcony suite Seven Seas Voyager will depart Ft. Lauderdale January 9 on a roundtrip six-segment, 111-night World Cruise - Regent's most extensive ever. The cruise line will return to southern and eastern Africa for the first time since 2003, calling at Walvis Bay, Cape Town, Richards Bay, Maputo (Mozambique), Mombasa, Mahe (Seychelles), and Male (Maldives). And, among the almost four-dozen destinations reached, four will be maiden calls at Maputo (Mozambique), Maura (Brunei), Colombo (Sri Lanka) and Valencia (Spain - for America's Cup), in addition to a series of complimentary shore side events, including a game drive through Amboseli in the shadow of the mighty Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Following this extended voyage, the ship will head to Europe for a summer in the Baltic and fall in the Mediterranean with new calls at Falmouth (England), Kos (Greece), Korcula (Croatia) and Golfo di Porto (Corsica) (the latter two are also new calls for the Seven Seas Navigator).

Other Seven Seas Voyager highlights will be a 14-night Norway cruise to the North Cape and Spitzbergen, hosted by Captain Dag Dvergastein, including a call to his hometown of Nevlunghaven, Norway. And, due to the popularity of longer cruises, Regent will launch new 42- and 44-night Grand Europe voyages in May and October, each calling at 33 ports.

The 700-guest all-balcony suite Seven Seas Mariner will begin the year with a four-segment, 59-night roundtrip Ft. Lauderdale "Circle South America" voyage reaching 31 ports in 16 countries with a first time call at Laguna San Rafael (Chile), and the personal insights of famed ocean explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau, who will sail the Amazon. In the spring of 2007, the ship will sail the Caribbean, then head to the West Coast of the U.S. with a turnaround in San Francisco. She will then enjoy a season of seven-night Gulf of Alaska sailings before a westward departure September 12 for an eight-segment, 107-night "Grand Asia Pacific" journey returning to Burma after an interval of several years, and calling for the first time in Yokohama (Japan), Ko Samui (Thailand) and Pusan (South Korea), with Osaka (Japan) to be used as a turnaround port.

The 490-guest all-suite (90% with private balconies) Seven Seas Navigator will spend the first four months of 2007 sailing a series of Caribbean cruises from Ft. Lauderdale. New next year, the vessel will be deployed exclusively in the Mediterranean from April through early November where she make maiden calls at Cartagena (Spain), Kotor (Montenegro) and Koper (Slovenia).

When the three ships sail the Caribbean in the winter and fall of 2007, they will add Cayo Levantado (Dominican Republic) to their itineraries, and the Seven Seas Mariner will also reach Chiapas (Mexico).

The 330-guest all-ocean view (more than 50% with private balconies) Paul Gauguin, which makes her home sailing French Polynesia year-round, will offer guests a selection of seven-, 10, 11-, and 14-night voyages roundtrip from Papeete, Tahiti, calling at the Society, Tuamotu, Marquesas, Cook and Austral Islands. New for 2007 will be four 14-night sailings calling at Nuku Alofa (Tonga), Vanua Levu, Lautoka and Yasawa (Fiji).
