In the stylish world of elegant travel, exclusivity is everything. When luxury is rarefied it is beautifully beguiling and the latest addition to Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ world-class fleet promises to enchant as never before. As the most luxurious ship ever built, the all suite, all balcony Seven Seas Explorer has reset and raised the standard in the glamorous world of ocean cruising. Furthermore, availability for Regent Seven Seas ships is kept to a strictly limited number to ensure each guest is given individually bespoke indulgences and tailor-made experiences on every voyage.
New for summer 2016, Regent Seven Seas Explorer has expanded its appeal for cuisine connoisseurs with its exclusive Gourmet Explorer Tour, which promises to provide a mesmerising menu of Michelin-starred fine-dining both on and off the stunning ship itself.
Specially designed for guests seeking one-of-a-kind epicurean experiences, and an atlas of authentic and appetising culinary delights, the Gourmet Explorer Tour combines the best aspects of traditional travel exploration with gorgeous gastronomy voyages throughout the word’s most culinary conscious continent, Europe.
Each Gourmet Explorer Tour was handcrafted by the line’s Executive Director of Culinary Enrichment, Chef Kathryn Kelly, and the result is one of vivacious, flavoursome adventure. In preparing the tours, Kelly partnered with a vast network of Michelin-starred chefs and local culinary experts to bring Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ guests the finest array of culinary experiences available for each destination. The resulting tours are both luxurious in nature and distinctly authentic to the region’s culinary heritage.
Encompassing the world’s most elite European epicurean destinations, the tour will uncover ultra-premium Mediterranean fare, from sundrenched vineyards to world-renowned Michelin-starred restaurants, with a few famous fromageries, decadent Master Chef cooking displays and picturesque patisseries thrown in, too.
Diversity and vibrancy are very much at the heart of these tantalising tours and incorporate every one of Europe’s finest regions synonymous with sumptuous cuisine and passion for food. In-keeping with Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ definitive reputation for offering the most exclusive, spacious and luxurious ships availability for the Gourmet Explorer Tours will be limited to ensure each guest is given the greatest experience and enjoyment.
Whether shopping for preserved lemons in the Central Market of Casablanca or immersed in an artisanal olive oil-tasting in Catalonia, Spain, each tour provides an intimate behind-the-scenes glimpse into the world’s most captivating cuisines. Many of the tours include personalised instruction back on board at one of the eighteen individual cooking stations in the Culinary Arts Kitchen. Synonymous with tailor-made luxury and specialised personal service, Regent Seven Seas Cruises is also the only line to offer complimentary unlimited shore excursions in every port-of-call in every destination.
