Here are the five tiers of the Regent Society:
Regent is the third luxury cruise line represented here, but the first listed with an all-inclusive policy for gratuities and beverages onboard. Naturally, so much is already included in the cruise that you already feel special, but membership has its rewards in luxury cruising as well.
As stated, we rate Regent as the top luxury loyalty program because the line is already inclusive for beverages and gratuities so the free internet access and phone service, laundry services and free daily newspapers delivered to your door daily are all icing on a very sumptuous cake.
Some of the aspects we like about Regent include complimentary Internet access after just 21 days onboard. This is especially enticing to people who use a lot of Internet since Regent also boasts some of the most technically efficient Internet access equipment in the cruise world. They have implemented special technology to make web surfing faster as a service to their guests. Unlike most cruise lines, they don't strive to make money from access. At CruiseMates we especially respect this approach because we regard Internet access as a necessity of life, not a luxury.
Add in the hour of free phone time to the free Internet access at the Silver level, which many cruise ships would charge you as much as $500 for alone. The only thing we would change about this program would be free laundry services at lower levels. This is an important amenity, but in the long run you save far more money with the free Internet and phone access than you do with the laundry services.
