Spacious Suites: Everyone stays in an expansive suite on these ships, and most cabins have balconies, walk-in closets, large bathrooms, and even bathtubs. As the price goes up, the space and amenities grow impressively. One special addition: The top Regent Suite on the Seven Seas Explorer comes with a solarium plus its own spa and a driver in ports ... and, for a fare of $5,000 per person, per day, it's being called the most exclusive suite in the world.
Socializing Encouraged: Early on in the cruise, you'll be asked to join the "block party." This Regent exclusive is a fun and easy way to meet your neighbors: You just step out of your cabin into your corridor at 6 pm with an empty glass. Stewards serve wine, and you get to meet your cruise mates. Since you'll be with the same people on ship and shore during excursions, it's a lovely way for the line to help facilitate friendships — especially since those massive cabins don't discourage you from hiding out.
