In advance of its inaugural Alaska season, Regent Seven Seas Cruises has launched a "Sell Three, Sail Free" promotion for travel advisors. Advisors booking three suites between April 1 and April 30, 2023 on any of the 15 eligible Alaska voyages (departing June through September 2023), will earn a free cruise for themselves and a guest on one of the same eligible voyages.
"Travel Partners are integral to not only maintaining Regent Seven Seas Cruises' position as the world's leading and most-inclusive luxury cruise line but promoting Seven Seas Explorer's highly anticipated inaugural Alaska season,” said Shawn Tubman, senior vice president of sales for Regent Seven Seas Cruises. "To show our support to our valued Travel Partners, we are incredibly excited to offer the Sell Three Sail Free incentive to send them on a well-deserved free vacation to experience the unrivaled Regent experience for themselves."
At the same time, RSSC also revealed a new collection immersive culinary experiences in Alaska as part of its Epicurean Perfection program. The three curated Epicurean Traveler Tours and three new Culinary Arts Kitchen classes will be themed around the cuisine of the Pacific Northwest.
"We are incredibly excited to offer a new collection of immersive culinary experiences to enrich Seven Seas Explorer's inaugural Alaska season," said Andrea DeMarco, president of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
Highlights include a visit to a sustainable oyster and kelp farm, a catamaran ride through a glacier-carved fjord to visit a sustainable wild Alaska salmon hatchery, and plenty of opportunities to sample local foods and artisan crafted beers.
New classes onboard showcase recipes from dishes found in the Vancouver, BC and Seattle areas, and how to make sustainable seafood selections. For the first time ever, the Culinary Arts Kitchen team will offer a class specifically for 6 to 16-year-olds.
"Our new collection of culinary experiences for Seven Seas Explorer's inaugural Alaska season is rooted in topics that are important to our guests," said Kathryn Kelly, executive chef director of culinary enrichment at RSSC. "We invite our guests to explore the Last Frontier by way of learning sustainable fishing and aquaculture, mastering fish cooking in our hands-on cooking school and understanding the authentic culinary traditions of the indigenous peoples and immigrants living in the majestic region of Alaska."
Regent has also launched an offer for children, aged 2 to 17, to sail for free.
