Demonstrating strong pent-up demand for luxury cruising, reservations surpassed Regent's previous booking day record, set in April 2018 with the launch of Seven Seas Splendor's™ inaugural season, by nearly 40%. While all destinations experienced high-levels of interest, cruises in Africa, Asia, the Mediterranean and Northern Europe - the Baltics in particular - were notably popular.
The 2022-2023 Voyage Collection launch also saw an over 100% increase in bookings from when the line's 2021-2022 Voyage Collection went on sale in August 2019. The line had surpassed the total number of bookings for the previous year's launch by 10:00am EST.
"The staggering response to our 2022-2023 Voyage Collection demonstrates the incredible future demand for the unrivaled Regent experience. Luxury travelers simply cannot wait to get back on the oceans to see the world again, while enjoying impeccable, personalized service on luxurious and spacious ships," said Jason Montague, president and chief executive officer, Regent Seven Seas Cruises. "Our loyal guests wasted no time in securing their perfect itinerary and suite with last year's Voyage Collection launch day total eclipsed after only 90 minutes of being on sale."
The carefully curated collection of 148 sailings from April 2022 to the end of April 2023, boasts 17 maiden ports of call for the line and 105 overnight visits. Travelers will have access to over 350 UNESCO World Heritage Sites across thousands of FREE unlimited shore excursions on cruises to Africa and Arabia, Alaska, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Canada and New England, the Caribbean and Panama Canal, the Mediterranean, Northern Europe and South America, as well as transoceanic crossings and five Grand Voyages.
The record bookings day follows hot on the heels of Regent's recent record-breaking launch day for its 2023 World Cruise where reservations doubled that of the 2022 World Cruise launch.
