World cruise with fares starting at £69,000 sells out before opening for bookings

The company said the ship’s luxurious Distinctive Suites were the first to sell out with wealthy buyers looking for the best.

Jason Montague, president and CEO of Regent Seven Seas Cruises said: “We have received unprecedented interest in this sailing and this phenomenal booking record shows once again that people, just like the world itself, are now open to travel and are not going to wait around and let opportunities pass them by.

“It is remarkable that luxury passengers continue to sign up, or want to remain on the waitlist, in case some guests cancel their reservation between now and the sailing in two and a half year’s time, people simply want to explore as much as possible.”
