Cruise Critic Announces Partnership with Regent Seven Seas Cruises


Ewing, NJ – May 2, 2017 – Cruise Critic®, the world’s leading cruise reviews site and online cruise community, has announced a new partnership with Regent Seven Seas Cruises, to offer Cruise Critic Meet & Mingle parties onboard all Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ voyages. Regent Seven Seas Cruises is now the ninth cruise line to host the exclusive events, offering the opportunity for cruisers who have interacted online to meet in person while onboard.


“We’re excited to welcome Regent Seven Seas Cruises to our Meet & Mingle program,” explains Mike Ewing, General Manager of Cruise Critic. “The parties are a great way to support Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ already strong dedication to guest satisfaction, by providing the line a unique opportunity to meet and engage with some of their most passionate fans, and guests who may never have sailed with the line before.”


“Regent Seven Seas Cruises is very happy to host Cruise Critic Meet & Mingles for guests to meet and share their passion for cruising with like-minded travelers,” shares Jason O’Keefe, Director of Marketing & Seven Seas Society for the line. “The new Cruise Critic Meet & Mingles aboard our fleet of the world’s most luxurious cruise ships will provide a natural forum for guests to meet, after months of anticipating, discussing and planning on Cruise Critic, and embark together on new unforgettable voyages to some of the world’s greatest destinations.”


Cruise Critic’s community of over 1.5 million members use the site’s forums to meet and interact prior to stepping foot onboard through the popular Roll Call tool – often times more than a year before the sail date. Regent Seven Seas Cruises is the ninth cruise line to offer private Meet & Mingle parties for Cruise Critic members — similar partnerships are in place with Azamara Club Cruises, Carnival Cruise Line, Celebrity Cruises, Crystal Cruises, MSC Cruises, Royal Caribbean International, Silversea Cruises and Viking Ocean Cruises.


Beginning on May 2, 2017, Regent Seven Seas Cruises will host complimentary one-hour cocktail parties with hors d’oeuvres for Cruise Critic members who have signed up for Meet & Mingle events on the Cruise Critic website. Those interested in participating should visit
