New details announced for Seven Seas Explorer’s 2020 Dubai to Singapore cruise

Regent Seven Seas Cruises teased back in August last year that their new ultra-luxury cruise ship Seven Seas Explorer would be cruising from Dubai during the 2020 season, now they’ve finally made details available.

According to itinerary information released by Regent Seven Seas Cruises, Explorer will cruise from Dubai on November 28th, 2020, bound for Singapore. The cruise is called the Serene Temples Of Asia voyage, by Regent, and serene it certainly is.

Seven Seas Explorer will take a leisurely 22 night voyage from Dubai to Singapore in 2020.

This Dubai to Singapore cruise is unusual because, unlike the usual two-week length for most cruises between Dubai and the Asian cruise hub, this one will be 22 nights.

The longer length of Seven Seas Explorer’s Dubai to Singapore cruise in 2020 is a result of more port calls (she visits 12 cruise destinations along the way), and more overnights (one night in Mumbai and a full two nights and three days in Myanmar).

Seven Seas Explorer will depart Dubai on November 28th, and will visit Fujairah in the UAE before spending two days at sea bound for Mumbai, where she will stay overnight. The ship will then bounce along the coast of India, visiting Goa, Mangalore, and Kochi.

Explorer will spend another day at sea crossing the Laccadive Sea on her way to Colombo, Sri Lanka, before spending three days in the Bay of Bengal bound for Asia.

Yangon (formerly Rangoon), the capital of Myanmar (formerly Burma), is a highlight of the cruise with a 2 night port call.

Myanmar, or more specifically Yangon, its long-isolated capital, is the next port of call. Seven Seas Explorer will stay in port for two nights and three days, before visiting Phuket in Thailand and Penang and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.

Finally, on December 19th, she’ll arrive in Singapore and spend the last night of the cruise in port, giving passengers a full two days to explore the city and partake in the cruise line’s expansive array of shore excursions.

Shore excursions are something that Regent Seven Seas does particularly well, and on this cruise itinerary it’s no different, with 64 shore excursions in these 12 ports included in the cruise fare.

In addition, all guests staying in any suite category can enjoy a free three-night Cities of the Emirates pre-cruise stay, or alternatively you can do a post-cruise three-night stay in Singapore.

Regent Seven Seas Explorer is one of the most expensive cruise ships ever built (on a per-ton basis), costing three times as much as a conventional cruise ship. She was the most luxurious in the world when she was launched in 2016 and has since been joined by sister ship Seven Seas Splendor and an as-yet unnamed third ship.

With five restaurants, six bars and cafes, two pools, two whirlpools, a Canyon Ranch Spa & Gym, three lounges, a full-size theatre, and even a culinary arts kitchen for guest use, she is undoubtedly one of the most impressive cruise ships sailing from Dubai in 2020.
