The cruises range from seven nights to the 150-night 2025 Away in Wonder world cruise, and four Grand Voyages are included. Other highlights include two 14-night Alaska voyages, Western European sailings, Mediterranean and Caribbean expeditions, and a debut season in Canada and New England.
“Our 2024-2025 Voyage Collection has been curated to provide guests the chance to experience new cultures and gain new perspectives, across thousands of nautical miles,” said Jason Montague, President & CEO, Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
“The collection is filled with opportunity after opportunity to connect with the world around us. With multiple new ports of call, a plethora of overnight stays in port, and our enviable inclusion of unlimited shore excursions, our luxury cruises are the remedy for every traveler’s wanderlust,” he added.
The Dubai and Cape Town cruises will see Seven Seas Voyager embark from Cape Town on December 1st, 2024 on a 19-night voyage to Dubai, calling in Mossel Bay and Richard’s Bay in South Africa, before venturing out into the Indian Ocean to call in Mozambique, the Comores, Madagascar, and the Seychelles.
On May 16th, 2025, she’ll then depart Dubai on an 18-night cruise to Piraeus, the gateway to Athens, the capital of Greece. The cruise will include port calls in Al Khasab, Muscat and Salalah, in Oman, as well as Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, and the Egyptian port of Safaga for Luxor.
Seven Seas Voyager will also visit Aqaba for Petra in Jordan, transit the Suez Canal, and visit Israel before arriving in Greece.
Notably, the port call in Safaga, Egypt will be an overnighter, giving guests more time to explore Luxor, which is several hours by bus inland. The city is home to the famed Valley of the Kings and the magnificent tomb of Tutankhamen and the huge mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut.
