$100,000 Cruise – Almost Sold Out?

Have a $100,000 to spare? Why not follow in the footsteps of the stylish travelers who snapped up – and almost sold out – this upcoming, Regent Seven Seas world cruise

Regent Seven Seas’ 2017 World Cruise will be the line’s first in six years, and will be held on board the all-suite, Seven Seas Navigator. Prices start at over $100,000 per couple for the 128-day cruise around the world, departing from Miami in January, 2017. On the itinerary are an impressive 62 ports on 31 countries, across six continents. There will be 29 UNESCO World Heritage sites on the itinerary, and shore excursions to dreamy, diverse and must-see travel destinations like Petra in Jordan, Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, and the Elephanta Caves of India.

But when it comes to cruising in style, it’s not just about impressive destinations, it’s also about creature comforts on board the ship. Booking the full voyage entitles privileged travelers to a host of top-of-the-line amenities including a pre-cruise hotel and gala, first class air to and from Miami, luggage service, unlimited laundry and pressing, unlimited wi-fi on the ship, access to exclusive events and more, even free medical on board service!

Though the cruise is long, the calls are plenty and the perks are alluring, the price is still steep for most people. Fares start at $54,999 per person based on double occupancy for a 301-square-foot room (that’s over $100,000 per couple), with larger rooms and suites only going higher. A big suite, for example, can go for over $300,000 per couple.

It may be surprising for some, however, that demand is still high. As a matter of fact, it has been reported that the 490-passenger cruise has already been booked 70% – within the first day sales opened!

Well… we now know how much cruising and travel aficionados who want to see the world in style are willing to pay for the experience. How would you spend a ‘spare’ $100,000?
