Regent Seven Seas Cruises went on sale for World Cruise 2024 tickets around 8:30 a.m. EST Wednesday. They sold out around 11 a.m., according to a company statement. Rates were as high as $ 199,999 per guest for a master suite.
The cruise is scheduled to depart Jan.6, 2024 from Miami, Florida on the Seven Seas Mariner.
The nearly five-month cruise will span 34,500 nautical miles, venturing to 66 ports and 31 countries, including destinations in Central America, the US West Coast, Hawaii, the South Pacific Islands, Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, the Indian subcontinent, the Middle East, the Mediterranean and Bermuda. There are 442 shore excursions available.
Wednesday’s ticket sales broke the company’s record for opening day bookings, according to a press release on Thursday. The previous record was set in September 2020, when bookings for Regent’s 2023 Global Cruise went on sale.
Jason Montague, president and CEO of Regent Seven Seas Cruises, a subsidiary of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, said there had been a “sharp increase” in first-time travelers with the company.
“With a waiting list longer than ever, we knew the 2024 Global Cruise was going to be popular, but this exceptional response exceeded all expectations,” Montague said in the statement. “For our customers, the 2024 Global Cruise is more than just a cruise vacation – it’s a return to normalcy”
