Sailing through the Caribbean on a world cruise sounded like an amazing idea, until it wasn’t. The changes to their itinerary meant they wouldn’t be in as many places as planned and missing out on all of the sights along the way.
The “seven seas navigator itinerary 2021” is a cruise that was going to be taking place in 2021. The cruise has been changed and the new itinerary will not take place until 2023.
What was supposed to be a 120-night world cruise got a big schedule alteration the night before it was supposed to leave.

Guests who were scheduled to depart aboard Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ Seven Seas Mariner the following morning heard on Tuesday evening that the sold-out voyage had been drastically changed. Instead of visiting some of the world’s most exotic locations, the trip will be split into four legs, each departing from Miami and visiting predominantly Caribbean and Latin American destinations. The following parts are presently being planned:
- On January 23, a 21-night Grand Caribbean cruise departing from Miami will sail round-trip.
- On February 13, a 31-night Grand Caribbean cruise departing from Miami will sail round-trip.
- On March 16, a 25-night Amazon cruise departing from Miami will sail round-trip.
- On April 10, a 25-night Panama Canal cruise departing from Miami and concluding in San Francisco will set sail.
Guests who want to proceed with the modified schedule will be refunded 30% of their money. They may also choose to perform a partial sailing and get a refund plus a 15% discount for the days not sailed. Finally, customers have the option to cancel the cruise and obtain a full refund.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises, like the other Norwegian Cruise Line Holding brands, participates in the Sail Safe program, which requires passengers to be completely vaccinated and tested at the terminal before to departure.

Due to “COVID-related difficulties,” Norwegian Cruise Line has postponed preparations for five of its ships to resume operation for the first time since the stoppage. In addition, the upcoming sailings of three ships that had previously welcomed back passengers were canceled.
Since of its smaller ships, Regent is a popular choice for world trips because it can access ports that larger companies can’t.
With a total registered tonnage of 48,075 tons, the Seven Seas Mariner transports just 700 passengers and 445 crew members, resulting in a guest-to-staff ratio of 1 to 1.6.
