It’s not every day a brand gets to celebrate their 25th anniversary, but when they do, you know it will be quite the party.
For two-and-a-half decades, Regent Seven Seas Cruises has made it their mission to provide all-inclusive luxury to their guests while at sea. As a way of thanks, Regent has rolled out the red carpet fleet-wide for very exclusive opportunities; which Sarah and I were both lucky enough to experience firsthand.
Compass Rose Galley Tour
I hope you’re hungry!
Cruise-goers on one of the 25 voyages will have the unique opportunity to experience a brand new feast created specially for Regent’s 25th anniversary celebration. During select sea days, guests will be invited to enjoy a unique brunch in the Compass Rose restaurant. Starting from inside the restaurant, a red carpet guides guests into the galley, giving them that special VIP feeling while touring the kitchen.
Inside the galley, guests will have the chance to meet the hardworking staff creating their luxurious meals each day. During our private tour, we were led through the galley by Executive Chef Hamza Mebareki, who shared with us the ins and outs of what goes on behind the scenes.
I should mention that I didn’t capture all of the food that was being offered at the brunch, because if I had, this post would be far too long. However, I did manage to snap some of my favorites: bread, cheese, fruit, and wine. Doesn’t get much better than that.
For a taste of what else was offered, I’d like you to think of fresh fish, lamb curry, Zurich-style veal, and made-to-order pasta, just to name a few.
Needless to say, we had our fill of delicious treats.
25th Anniversary Commemorative Pin
Guests sailing on one of the anniversary cruises will receive a Commemorative Pin. I’m a huge fan of collectibles and mementos from my trips, so this little token of appreciation was one I’ll cherish forever.
In addition, Regent Seven Seas Cruises is encouraging both new and past guests to share their unforgettable moments sailing with Regent via their dedicated microsite – Regent25.com. Also, they’re using their social media channels Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to drive engagement with guests for a special sweepstakes that runs until December 22, 2017, where guests can qualify to win a cruise on the new Seven Seas Explorer. Not too shabby!
Take a look at the #Regent25 hashtag on Instagram for inspiration. You might just find a few of my photos on there.
Silver Anniversary Tastings
The food and wine on all Regent Seven Seas Cruises is top notch, so how could they get any better? By introducing a special Silver Anniversary Tastings menu, that’s how!
In addition to their included fine wines and spirits, guests will have the chance to broaden their palettes with special tasting seminars featuring premier spirits and exclusive vintages.
Ambassador Offer Gets an Upgrade
Lastly, Regent Seven Seas Cruises is doubling the bounty on their Ambassador Offer. Past guests that refer a guest on one of the 25 voyages will receive a $400 per suite shipboard credit, as will their friends. This special offer can also be combined with publicly available offers, Group, and National Account programs.
25 Years of Unforgettable Video
During a fantastic Seven Seas Society cocktail party, which celebrates Regent’s loyalty program for returning guests, we had the pleasure of viewing their 25th anniversary video. Watch it below:
