In February we were thrilled to begin booking for the first Regent Seven Seas Explorer sailings in 2016! Our excitement continues to unfold as they release new details about the ship which is taking “the most inclusive luxury experience” to a new level!
CULINARY ARTS KITCHEN
For the first time on any of its ships, Regent has created a brand new culinary instruction center, which will be used for a over a dozen classes and can hold up to 18 future chefs at a time.
Virtuoso is what’s called a “travel consortia”, something very similar to a special club for top travel agencies. Virtuoso membership is by invitation only and represents the top 5% of luxury travel agencies worldwide.
Cruise Specialists is very proud of our decades long Virtuoso membership.
What is really significant for Cruise Specialists clients are the complimentary Virtuoso Voyager Club benefits we can provide you at no charge because we belong to Virtuoso.
Less than a century ago, ocean liners were the only way to travel between the United States and Europe. During the early 20th century, ship lines like White Star and Cunard competed for the honor of having the fastest and most elegant ships at sea.
Today, when you can reach London from New York City in less than six hours by air, a six-day Transatlantic voyage is a luxury, a once-in-a lifetime experience, not just a mode of transportation.
We like to say that our hosted cruises tours are like two fabulous vacations in one.
In addition to exploring some of the most fascinating destinations on earth, you get to travel among friends with a fun-loving host, enjoying the camaraderie of folks as passionate about travel as you are.

Think a world cruise is only for those who’ve retired?
Ran and Scott would disagree!!
The two friends met during their time at Ohio State and realized each was not only excited about travel, but determined to make it part of their lives!
The Cruise Specialists team met Ran and Scott during our send off dinner in Fort Lauderdale for the Holland America Line 2015 Grand World Voyage. We’re excited to share more of their thoughts and adventures once the trip is complete!
Cruise fares are priced based on the assumption that each cabin will be occupied by two passengers.
So, for example, if the cruise fare for each person in a cabin is $10,000 then the cruise line pricing assumes they will be paid $20,000 in total fares for the cabin.
Since cabins occupied by only one passenger do not bring in as much revenue, cruise lines levy a “single supplement” charge to make up for some of the lost revenue the additional passenger would have paid.
