Regent Seven Seas Cruises saw its largest ever booking day when sales for its 2022-2023 Voyage Collection opened on October 21.

The previous booking day record for the 28-year-old cruise line was set in April 2018 with the launch of Seven Seas Splendor’s inaugural season.

All destinations saw high levels of interest, but cruises in Africa, Asia, the Mediterranean and northern Europe – especially the Baltics – were notably popular.

Jason Montague, president and chief executive, said: “The staggering response to our 2022-2023 Voyage Collection demonstrates the incredible future demand for the unrivalled Regent experience.

“Luxury travellers simply cannot wait to get back on the oceans to see the world again.

“Our loyal guests wasted no time in securing their perfect itinerary and suite with last year’s Voyage Collection launch day total eclipsed after only 90 minutes of being on sale.”

Graham Sadler, senior vice president and managing director, added: “This phenomenal achievement is a testament to the professionalism and tenacity of our talented UK travel partners and we would like to thank them for their support, without which the hugely successful launch of our 2022-2023 Voyage Collection would not have been possible.”

The collection features 148 sailings from April 2022 to April 2023, with 17 maiden ports of call for the line and 105 overnight visits.

Travellers will have access to more than 350 Unesco World Heritage Sites across thousands of free, unlimited shore excursions.
