The 750-passenger Seven Seas Explorer features all-suite, all-balcony accommodation with European beds, marble bathrooms and some of the biggest verandas at sea. The Regent Suite has Picasso lithographs, a Steinway piano and an in-suite spa retreat with heated tile loungers, sauna and a hot tub on the balcony. Passengers in this suite also receive unlimited spa treatments and a private car with driver in every port.
Fare for all passengers include unlimited shore excursions, all drinks, dining in speciality restaurants, pre-paid gratuities, unlimited wi-fi, 24-hour room service and an in-suite liquor and mini-bar replenished daily, as well as a raft of spa fitness and wellness activities at the onboard Canyon Ranch Spa.

Several depart from or disembark in Sydney during the inaugural local season, including the 178-night Singapore to Sydney Balinese Celebration sailing; the 154-night Majesty of Milford cruise from Sydney to Auckland; the 14-night Grandeur of New Zealand sailing from Auckland to Sydney; the 18-night Koalas to Komodos cruise from Sydney to Bali; and a 15-night Radiance Of Thailand sailing from Bali to Hong Kong .
