This World Cruise to 140 Countries Will Set You Back as Much as $839,999

Cruises can be very cheap. Without much effort, just about anyone can snag a very affordable seven-night sailing in the Caribbean, Alaska, or even the Mediterranean. World cruises, however, are entirely different. Because they last between three and nine months, they tend to cost a bundle. That said, no world cruise is more expensive than Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ newly announced 2027 World of Splendor voyage.

The world cruise, which will depart on January 11, 2027, from Miami, Florida, for a 140-night voyage around the world on board the Seven Seas Splendor, is the most expensive to date. Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ press release earlier this month announced that the fares for this all-inclusive sailing will start “from $91,499 per guest for a luxurious Veranda Suite up to $839,999 per guest for the opulent Regent Suite,” i.e. from $650 to $6000 per guest per night. But because cruises are based on double occupancy, you can multiply those numbers by two.

For such immense sums of money, you’d expect Regent Seven Seas Cruises to create a once-in-a-lifetime trip and, from what the cruise line’s website says, nobody should be disappointed. The Seven Seas Splendor will depart from Miami, visit 71 ports in 40 countries on six continents, and will end in New York City nearly five months later. During the voyage, guests will have the opportunity to choose from 480 shore excursions and visit 73 UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The Seven Seas Splendor, delivered to Regent Seven Seas Cruises in 2020, is a small ship, accommodating a maximum of 746 guests in 373 suites and 548 crew members (a ratio of one crew member to 1.4 guests). The accommodations on board the ship are all luxurious, even the cheapest ones, but the Regent Suite takes the cake. Described by the cruise line as “the most exclusive address residence at sea”, the Regent Suite offers 4,443 square feet of space, including a 1,300 square-foot wraparound veranda and a glass-enclosed solarium, a sauna, a steam room, and a jacuzzi. The suite also has a Steinway grand piano, artworks by Picasso, and a $200,000 bed set-up. Is it worth $1.7 million for two guests for the duration of the 2027 world cruise? Take a virtual tour of the place and make your own mind. Or better even, give it a try — if you can afford it.

Regent Seven Seas Cruises is not the only cruise line — not even the only luxury cruise line — to offer world cruises with exceptional itineraries and extraordinary amenities. There are dozens of world cruises scheduled for the next few years, including Oceania’s 2025 200-day voyage around the world, starting at $49,799, and Cunard’s 2026 116-day Full World Voyage, starting at $20,118.
