Itineraries for cruise addicts

From North America's last frontier to the Danube and Antarctica, these cruise itineraries take passengers to far-flung corners of the globe

Seven Seas Mariner cruises to North America’s last frontier
Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ six-star, Seven Seas Mariner takes travellers on 15 memorable seven-, 10- and 11-night journeys through North America’s last frontier.  Guests onboard the Mariner can immerse themselves in the dramatic new culinary experiences, elegant new suite designs, and completely reimagined guest spaces that were at the forefront of a $165 million overhaul. Along with the remodelled library, guests can also enjoy a dip in the new mosaic-tiled pool, and experience the sumptuous dining at Chartreuse or the flagship restaurant, Compass Rose. While the handsome Card Room and The Casino steal some of the thunder, the serene Canyon Ranch Spa gives you a good reason to drift away in a treatment room. As for the newly designed guest suites, you may find your piece of paradise just by looking out to sea. rssc.com
