NCL de luxe success

Nearly three quarters of cabins on an epic, around-the-world sailing unveiled last month by luxury line Regent Seven Seas were booked within hours of the announcement despite a price tag in excess of $100,000 per couple, an executive for the line’s parent company revealed.

“This cruise has proven so popular that 70% of the voyage was booked on the very first day of sales,” Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings president and CEO Frank Del Rio said during the call with Wall Street analysts. “This is a testament not only to the allure of the Regent brand, but also to our belief that guests … want unique, different, and rich destination experiences.”

Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings is the parent company of Regent as well as Norwegian Cruise Line and Oceania Cruises.

Kicking off Jan. 5, 2017 in Miami, the 128-day sailing on the 490-passenger, all-suiteSeven Seas Navigator will be Regent’s first around-the-world cruise in six years and one of its most ambitious voyages ever. It include stops in more than 60 ports across six continents.
