It's Party Time With Regent

As we start to hit the pre-Christmas party season, it's interesting to note what many cruise lines do by way of extra events for the festive season, with Yuletide activities and lots of other seasonal 'extras' that are all part of the general cruise experience at this time of year.

But here at World of Cruising central, we recently had a note from luxury all-inclusive line Regent Seven Seas that we thought was worth passing on. Parties at sea are not necessaily new, but it's extremely illuminating to see a line that makes a real feature of them, with no less than FIVE separate opportunities for guests to meet and mingle.
In particular, we like the sound of the Bloc Party, as it is a highly original idea that no-one else is currently doing. Here's what Regent say about their 'party time' ensemble (as a quick aside, all Regent suites include a fully stocked bar, hence it's easy to 'take a glass' as they say!):

Bloc Party - A fantastic way to meet for our guests as the Captain, General Manager and Cruise Director will assemble on the bridge, ring the cocktail bell and invite passengers to take a glass from their suite and make their way to the corridor. Here they will find our butlers and stewardesses ready to serve drinks and canap├ęs. Also other Officers and Staff
are on each deck to socialise while they make acquaintances with fellow passengers and neighbours. During this unique event, the Captain, General Manager and Cruise Director will make their way down to meet everybody personally and welcome them to the RSSC family.

First Timers Welcome - When guests join Regent for the first time, there will be a gathering at the pre-dinner cocktail hour where they can meet our Cruise Director and Cruise Consultant, who will answer any questions they might have. They can help to start their cruise the best possible way and meet fellow passengers for first-time Regent guests.

Seven Seas (Repeaters) Party - This event is for all guests who have sailed with Regent before. The event is also to recognise our long-time cruisers as well as a night together enjoying Caviar and delicious Canapes.

Farewell Party and Crew Capers
- The Crew shows their cultural heritage and talent as
they perform a show and all crew are there to give a fond farewell to our guests. This is a real highlight not to be missed as this Party is always paired with a standing ovation.

TPG Event - This is an event for all our Titanium, Platinum and Gold tiered guests, and can be in the form of a local private show on an exclusive excursion to recognise and show appreciation to these guests.

So, if you're looking for a real 'party' cruise, with a sophisticated difference, Regent really do tick all the boxes!
