On Regent Seven Seas Cruises, upscale families love that the classy cabins are all suites, the cruise is all-inclusive (including shore excursions) and there is special pricing for kids. Because the ships are smaller — just 700 guests — you'll often see fewer than 50 youngsters on board.
In 2016 free wi-fi will be available on all Regent Seven Seas cruises. Using a laptop, tablet or smart phone, unlimited wi-fi will be available in all categories and from any location on board. Eleven sailings in Asia and Africa will offer 3-night land tours in Cape Town, Angkor Wat, Hong Kong or Beijing with experiences such as an African safari, a Thai elephant camp and a visit to the Great Wall of China.
Programming starts at age 5 in three groups (ages 5-9, 9-12, 13-17 ), but the Club Mariner youth program is only available during certain voyages. Ages 1 and up are welcome to sail, but there are no programs for ages 1-3 or separate facilities for teens and tweens, though separate activities are offered through the Club Mariner Youth program. The Club Mariner counselors host a variety of activities, including games, craft projects, movies and “food fun” to make sure each child has a memorable experience. Activities are customized for each group. In-room sitting is expensive and officially not available, but staff members sometimes will babysit upon request.
