      About Regent Seven Seas Cruises

      Formerly Radisson Seven Seas Cruises, Regent — rebranded in 2007 — is a Miami-based luxury line that operates a fleet of four small cruise ships (with maximum passenger capacities ranging from 490 to 700) that sail much of the world. 

      What Makes Them Stand Out? 

      Regent is known for its attention to detail and personalized service, with a high ratio of staff to passengers. And while expensive, the line also offers a number of cost-cutting incentives such as all-inclusive pricing and, in many cases, two-for-one airfares (including free business class air for many cruises). Its four sleek, top-of-the-line small ships can reach out-of-the-way and more intimate ports that larger ships cannot. Regent ships feature all-suite cabins, and almost all come with private balconies. 

      Who Travels With Them?

      Regent Seven Seas attracts an affluent group of passengers — usually couples middle aged to older — who are seeking an all-inclusive small-ship experience, often in exotic locales. The line doesn’t cater to families (no supervised children’s programs are available), though it does offer special children’s fares on some cruises. 

      Where Do They Operate?

      As its name implies, Regent travels the Seven Seas, stopping in nearly 350 ports around the world. Parts of Africa, Asia, Australia and the Pacific, North and South America and Europe (northern and Mediterranean) are all on Regent itineraries, as are around-the-world cruises that visit more than 60 ports in 30 countries and may last up to two months. 

      How Does It Work?

      Once you come aboard a Regent ship, your only expenses will be personal items such as laundry and beauty services, purchases in the shops or on shore, or perhaps a fling at the casino. Shore excursions, gratuities, specialty restaurants, and drinks (fine wines and spirits) are all included in the price – expenditures that could run into the thousands of dollars on other lines. True, Regent charges a good deal more to begin with, but its passengers like not being “nickel-and-dimed to death” during the voyage.

      Why Travel With Them?  

      If you can afford it, you can cruise the world with Regent and expect to have an excellent experience with few hiccups. No formal wear is required – “elegant casual” is the watchword for dress.

      About Elite Luxury Kenya

      Also called “Kenya Safaris” this company is very locally minded, offering boutique travel experiences including honeymoon, and fully customized travel.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Elite Luxury Kenya provides a travel experience in Kenya that will introduce travelers to another side of the African safari. No frills, yet comfortable, the travel options seem to distinctly be designed to showcase traveling beyond the safari. Though this is not to say safari’s are not a focus. Rather for them, a safari holiday with them means you’ll get a very diverse tour in terms of activities, excursions, and accommodations.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Those seeking an affordable Kenya, Tanzania, and / or Uganda experience. Their tours are private and completely customizable. As a smaller company travelers may find that accommodations are less luxury in feel than an established luxury safari brand, however you will be very comfortable and well taken care of. And if local touches are important to you, these will make your trip especially enjoyable.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Despite what the name suggests, Elite Luxury Kenya also provides tours in Tanzania and Uganda. Part of their mission is to introduce travelers to Kenya and these other destinations beyond the typical safari. To that end you may enjoy a beach holiday, gorilla trek, or hike up Mount Kenya.

      Why Travel With Them?

      Kenya based and small, traveling with them is a way to support local business and in return have a fully local experience. You will get a sense of the “real” Kenya, while also experiencing all the classic safari moments.

      Tours are led by local knowledgeable guides, and your trip is designed by experts for a personalized touch - this helps ensure your trip to Kenya fulfills everything you want to see.
