Seven Seas Navigator in Santa Cruz
Another of the "repositioning" cruises stopped in Huatulco on Saturday. Regent sails 3 of these smaller "Seven Seas" ships in various crusing oceans at different times of the year. The hallmark of these ships is the crew/passenger ratio. Remarkably, almost 350 crew serve the less than 500 guests aboard. The Seven Seas ships are all-suite, all with ocean view, and a full 90% of the suites have balconies.
Regent also offers "small-group enrichment and excursion opportunities, specifically designed to experience destinations at a more authentic level." In other words, you and your club or family can book a cruise to a destination, and experience more than a superficial visit, with a well-known authority on the destination on board.
