Kristie aboard The Explorer


Glitz, glamour and unforgettable memories are only the beginning of the experiences on Regent Seven Seas Cruises. After 8 wonderful days aboard their newest ship, The Explorer, our travel advisor, Kristie Cummins, has a lot to boast about. Kristie was apart of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in which she attended the black tie christening ceremony with Godmother Princess Charlene. Here is her recount of her unforgettable trip!


The Explorer is said to be “the most luxurious ship ever built,” and after seeing it for myself, I know that to be true. The christening ceremony was incredibly memorable. The ceremony was filled with women clothed in beautiful dresses and men in their best suits. It featured Princess Charlene of Monaco and a live performance by Andrea Bocelli. Such a glamorous ceremony was only appropriate for the ship they were christening.

Words don’t seem to do The Explorer justice in describing just how beautiful it is. The exquisite blue and green colors seen throughout the ship create an elegant yet warm ambiance. While the ship was incredibly spacious, it only carries 750 passengers, which fostered an intimate atmosphere. The extra space allows for larger staterooms and balconies, which meant more personal space to sit back, relax, and take in the gorgeous views of the rich, blue waters and colorful horizons.

My time aboard felt like the perfect serene escape from other family-style cruises. Since Regent cruises are geared toward older couples, there were no distractions from relaxation. There were a variety of restaurants and lounges to hang out in, offering different styles of food, atmospheres and music. One of my favorite moments on-board was Chef Kelly’s cooking class in the culinary arts kitchen. It was such a fun experience - I highly recommend if you get to experience The Explorer for yourself. Not only did I get to learn to cook with an incredibly talented chef, but I got to enjoy a delicious meal too.

One of the best parts of traveling is trying new foods. The food on board was outstanding at all of the restaurants, but the specialty Asian restaurant, Pacific Rim, was my favorite. The rich flavors and unique pairings were unbeatable. If you’re looking to indulge in something for dessert, you must try the popcorn ice cream sundae at Prime 7. It’s the perfect balance between sweet and salty, and will leave your taste buds wanting more. Everything from the d├ęcor to the dessert was unforgettable.


If you’re looking to sail the world in high-class fashion, then you must experience one of the elegant Regent cruises. Call Kristie or your Sanders Travel advisor today to book your next Regent Seven Seas Cruise.
