Onboard Seven Seas Voyager in Zeebrugge - 25 August 2016
I was lucky enough to have been invited onboard the Seven Seas Voyager of Regent Seven Seas Cruises in Zeebrugge for a tour of the ship, a presentation about the upcoming drydocking of the ship and a lunch onboard. Anyone who knows the cruise industry knows that this cruise line is in the 7 star level of the market so their cruises tend to be a bit more expensive than most others but don't be fooled, these prices are ALL INCLUSIVE!!! Where other cruise lines will give you all port charges, tips, meals and non-alcoholic drinks included they will charge extra for tours, alcoholic drinks, specialised restaurants etc. Regent does not, when they say all inclusive they really mean ALL is included in the price of the cruise, tours are included, alcoholic drinks are included and altough you need to book the specialised restaurants, you don't need to pay extra for them, only a few things are extra, one is the beauty salon / spa and off course another is all the items / souvenirs you buy onboard.
Another part where they earn their stars is the food, this really is a 7 star ship with 7 star restaurants, the lunch I had was in one word FANTASTIC, the menu of 6 courses didn't only look good, it tasted great as well and the service is absolutely perfect. All in all this ship visit impressed me and I would recommend a cruise with Regent for anyone who loves style and rest with a choice of global itineraries. They operate 4 ships of medium size between 172.5m and 224.1m in length and between 490 and 750 passengers in order to be able to keep the service to the highest level.
