Seven Seas Voyager Emerges from Luxurious Renovation

Regent is on a whole other level from other cruises. I hope to cruise with them someday!

Seven Seas Voyager’s bow-to-stern refurbishment has been complete, giving her a luxurious new décor and a new collection of spectacular production shows for the Constellation Theater.  Seven Seas Voyager underwent an extensive, 25-day refurbishment as part of our $125 million fleet-wide refurbishment program, and is now underway on a 23-night Barcelona to Dubai voyage that departed on Nov. 9.  She now boasts the same elegant style and indisputable attention to detail famously featured on Seven Seas Explorer, providing all of our ships with a consistent look-and-feel.

Seven Seas Voyager joins Seven Seas Navigator as the second ship to receive this stylish new update to the public spaces and suites onboard.  In addition to the elegant new décor, the ship will debut five new production shows in the Constellation Theater.

While the shipboard enhancements extend from bow-to-stern, some of the more notable renovations include:

  • Penthouse, Concierge and Deluxe Suites: The largest…

The fact that this hotel is situated in Paris should make it unnecessary for one to explain why it is considered as one of the most romantic accommodations in the world.

The 5 Best Places to Go in the Algarve

This is a great article about the Algarve from fellow blogger goaskbecki. The Algarve is a region in Portugal southwest of Lisbon. It is a favorite of golfers and sun seekers, but has so much to offer!


The Algarve is perhaps Portugal’s most popular tourist destination – and with good reason! With a gorgeous coastline of long, white sandy beaches, constant warm weather and some of the friendliest people I’ve encountered on my travels, it’s easy to see why the Algarve is so popular. However, while most people go there to relax on the beach or by the pool, there’s still plenty to see and do in the Algarve for those who fancy exploring!


If you’ve read my post on what to do in Silves (found here), you’ll hopefully understand why I loved it so much. Overlooking the town is an old Moorish castle, which can be reached through the charming old town! Also make sure not to miss Silves Cathedral, which is another fantastic sight and is located right next to the castle! Wander down by the river to admire views of the castle from…
