Plus this line is all-inclusive, including fine wines and premium spirits, in-suite mini-bar replenished daily, 24-hour room service, pre-paid gratuities, and most shore excursions are included, unlimited. Reason #2 The Mariner caters to only 700 guests, making her one of the most spacious cruise ships in the world. She offers the luxury of single, open-seating dining in four distinctive restaurants featuring the finest cuisine afloat. In fact, chefs of the famed Cordon Bleu of Paris, the most prestigious culinary authority in the world, assist in the direction of one of the Mariner’s restaurants.

Reason #3 In the six-star tradition of Regent Seven Seas, the Mariner provides the highest level of personal service, with a staff to guest ratio of 1 to 1.6. Reason #4 Complimentary pouring wines at dinner, complimentary in-suite bar set-up and a no-tipping policy are just a few of the inclusive Regent Seven Seas Cruises features that further differentiate the Mariner from the ordinary or usual cruise offerings.
