               ho, since fourth-grade geography class, hasn’t yearned to
               explore the Amazon? The second longest river on Earth and
           Wthe largest in volume, it winds through six countries and is
            home to rare wildlife and a variety of Indian cultures. If you’ve yet
            to experience the iconic river, consider Regent Seven Seas Cruises®’
            Rhythm of the Amazon voyage, which conveniently sails round-
            trip from Miami, saving you one or more international flights.
            Departing November 2018, the 490-guest Seven Seas Navigator®
            will spend a week on the Amazon, sailing as far as Manaus. One of
            the free excursions offered there: a cruise on the Rio Negro to the
            village of Acajatuba where you can swim with pink dolphins in a
            nearby lake.

           Another river-centric destination, St. Petersburg, is built around
            a network of canals. On Seven Seas Explorer®’s seven-night sailing
            between Copenhagen and Stockholm, two complimentary
            excursions include cruises along the Molka and Fontanka Rivers,
            treating you to views of cathedrals and palaces – including the
            Summer Palace of Peter the Great. Seven Seas Explorer®, now just
            one year old, continues to draw rave reviews from our clients.

               “The new Seven Seas Explorer® is a delight to be aboard. The
                entire staff – from the Captain to the least senior person – are
                alert to one’s every need. We felt pampered. The ship and the
                life aboard is magnificent, so it will come as no surprise that
                the tours are equally excellent. We felt like British royalty when
               ‘taking afternoon tea’ at the lovely Reid’s Hotel on Madeira
               – as precisely and formally served as it was to Sir Winston
                Churchill himself.”
