"We are delighted to schedule two World Cruises in 2009, an unprecedented deployment that will provide our guests with the ultimate travel experience aboard the only all-suite, all-balcony luxury ships in the world," said Regent President Mark Conroy.
The two distinct itineraries span six continents, and include 23 overnight calls and exclusive on-board entertainment and the amenities.
