Does over 100 nights at sea sound appealing to you after over a year of being stuck at home?
If the answer is yes, you’re not alone.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ 132-night 2024 World Cruise just sold out in under three hours.

By around 11:00 AM, the sailing had been completely booked out.
This is the third year in a row the world cruise has broken Regent Seven Seas’ “world cruise opening day booking record,” according to a press release.

Plus, the waitlist is “longer than [Regent Seven Seas] has ever experienced,” Jason Montague, president and CEO of the cruise line, said in the press release.
The cruise line also saw a boost in bookings from first-time Regent Seven Seas guests looking to sail in more expensive suites.
Tickets start at almost $73,500 per person in a Deluxe Veranda Suite…
… But this price goes up to almost $200,000 per person for a stay in the Master Suite.
Let’s take a look at what makes the 132-night sailing so appealing to cruise goers despite being three years out.
The 2024 world cruise lives up to its name. It’ll sail from Miami to Central America, the US’ West Coast, Hawaii, the South Pacific Islands…
… Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, India, the Middle East, the Mediterranean, and Bermuda, back to Miami.
The entire 34,500 nautical-mile-about 39,700 miles-journey will take about five months…
… And will begin on January 6, 2024 aboard the Seven Seas Mariner cruise ship.
In total, the ship will hit 66 ports across 31 countries and four continents.
This includes visits to 61 UNESCO World Heritage Sites like Australia’s Gondwana Rainforests and Italy’s Medici Villas and Gardens …
… And a journey through the Panama Canal and Suez Canal.
The Seven Seas Mariner ship is the “world’s first all-suite, all-balcony luxury cruise ship,” according to Regent Seven Seas.

Overall, the Seven Seas Mariner can accommodate 700 guests and 445 crew members.
Wealthier guests staying in the Master Suite (the almost $200,000 ticket, that is) will ride out the journey in a 2,002 square-feet suite that has luxurious features like a crystal chandelier and a private butler.
The suite will also have two bedrooms and balconies, two and a half bathrooms, and a shared living room.
Hungry for a fine dining dinner? Head to one of Seven Seas Mariners’ four restaurants, which include a steakhouse, an Italian eatery, and French establishment.
But if you’re in the mood for a more casual night, you can grab dinner at the Pool Grill …
… or hang around one of the four bars and lounges.
And don’t forget about the classic cruise ship amenities, like a pool, sports deck ….
… library, and coffee shop.
“For our guests, the 2024 World Cruise represents so much more than just a cruise vacation-it’s a return to a normality,” Montague said.
