Seven Seas Explorer is the star of a new four-part TV documentary kicking off this Friday (23 August 2019) at 9pm.
The show, to be broadcast on Channel 5, takes an intimate look at multiple aspects of the ship and the overall cruise experience.
Documentary makers were given “unprecedented” access over two cruises around the Iberian Peninsula, the Bay of Biscay and Baltic Sea, Regent Seven Seas Cruises revealed.
The first episode follows the ship’s cruise director, John Barron, as he gets ready for his opening performance with a new group of passengers, while head butler, Raju, prepares the Regent Suite for the next guests. In addition, senior executive chef Michael, and food and beverage director, Stephane, explore local Spanish markets to find fresh fish to serve in the largest speciality restaurant at sea, Compass Rose.
The remaining three episodes will air at 9pm on 30 August, and 6 and 13 September.
As part of the documentary Regent is giving travel partners the chance to win a £250 Amazon e-voucher. All agents need to do is tune in and go to www.rssc.com/tv to answer a question about each episode. Each week, one winner will be drawn from all correct entries.
The cruise line is also providing promotional assets including a digital banner and a printable flyer to help agents take advantage of the awareness that the documentary will generate. Travel partners will be sent the toolkit by email.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises MD EMEA Graham Sadler said: “We are incredibly excited about this documentary, which illustrates the attention to detail, professionalism and hard work that goes into providing the unrivalled experience found on board Seven Seas Explorer, and indeed on each luxurious Regent Seven Seas Cruises ship.”
Seven Seas Explorer will return to Europe and the Caribbean throughout 2020. In 2021, it will be spend spring and autumn in Asia, with its first summer season in Alaska in between.
Regent Seven Seas is currently preparing for the launch of Seven Seas Splendor, which joins the fleet in February 2020.
