Regent Seven Seas Cruises has announced that following a hugely successful season – where its cruises have averaged 93% capacity – it will be raising its prices and is encouraging agents to take advantage before the increase.
The rise, which will take place on 1 October 2012, took into account a bi-annual exchange rate review in addition to the occupancy rate.
“This is a great message from Regent, that we’re increasing our prices,” said Paul Beale head of UK sales. “We’re able to do this because we’re 93% full so there is very little space left. Our price increase also happens to coincide with some great benefits for both agents and their guests, so there really hasn’t been a better time to book a Regent cruise.”
The firm is offering incentives to both trade and passengers including a ‘New to Regent’ agent incentive and a L’Occitane gift set, the latter of which is to coincide with National Cruise Week.
Regent markets itself as offering one of the most inclusive packages within the industry – with fares including return flights and transfers, hotel packages, unlimited shore excursions, dining and gratuity.
