Default Why I Sail Regent Seven Seas Cruises

I usually don't post second hand stories from onboard ship. However, this little snippet from a friend on the Seven Seas Voyager right now is, to me, a perfect example of why I sail on Regent.

Quote:
Captain Dag came on the speaker about 5 minutes ago and said he’s decided to make a surprise stop in Katakolon, Greece. He surprises us with these unplanned stops at his whim….he calls it “visiting one of his favorite watering holes?. We’ll be in Katakolon from 1-4:00 today. He reserved 3 restaurants where Regent is treating everyone to a Greek lunch.. This should be a fun stop as the weather is nice. This is not too far from Mt. Olympus so I know some will be going there. We’ll probably play it by ear what we do after our Greek lunch on shore.
This is reminiscent of the Seven Seas Naviagtor's Captain deciding to proceed into the Polar Ice Cap a couple of years ago to see how close they could get to the North Pole. Sure, it impacted a port visit down the road but the passengers all loved it. I'm hoping we make the same foray into the Polar Ice Cap when I sail the Seven Seas Voyager this summer.

There is a whole lot more to cruising than just circling the Caribbean.
