Regent Seven Seas Cruises said its 2015 summer season will open for bookings Feb. 19, with new port stops planned in Russia, Italy, Spain, Africa and Greece

Among the new ports of call for Seven Seas Voyager will be the Solovetsky Islands in the White Sea, in the north of Russia. The Voyager will offer 11 sailings in Northern Europe with multiple overnights in St. Petersburg.

Seven Seas Mariner will sail in the Mediterranean with new ports of call in Trieste, Italy; Almeria, Spain; and Gythion, Greece. Later in the year, it will head to Africa’s west coast with new calls in Sao Tome and Príncipe.

After spending most of the summer in Alaska, Seven Seas Navigator will transit the Panama Canal to New York for fall cruising in Canada/New England.

Among the pre- and post-cruise land programs Regent will offer are a three-night safari from Cape Town, South Africa, and a three-night package of tours in Dubai.

Child fares starting at $1,700 are available on 15 Northern European and Mediterranean summer voyages.
