Regent Seven Seas Cruises and the Smithsonian Institution have joined forces to launch a new enrichment program on Regent's cruise ships–The Smithsonian Collection by Smithsonian Journeys.
The guest lecture series will feature a wide range of experts from noted art historians to prominent authors and geopolitical experts, who will lead discussions both aboard the ships and ashore at travel destinations.
“For nearly 170 years, the Smithsonian Institution, the world’s largest museum and research complex, has been recognized as an icon within academic communities,” says Jason Montague, president and chief operating officer, Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “This partnership gives our guests access to some of the most authoritative thought-leaders in the world, providing deeper insights into the history, art, culture and politics of the destinations visited by our ships.”
Starting in July, The Smithsonian Collection by Smithsonian Journeys will be available on a majority of Regent sailings to destinations throughout the world including South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Caribbean.
Organized by Smithsonian Journeys, several more intimate opportunities with the presenter will also be available and guests looking to more fully immerse themselves in the destination can opt for select shore excursions escorted by The Smithsonian Collection by Smithsonian Journeys lecturer.
“Smithsonian Journeys’ focus on providing life-enriching, learning opportunities for travelers supports our important educational mission,” says Carol LeBlanc, senior vice president, Smithsonian Enterprises. “The experts chosen to sail on Regent Seven Seas Cruises will be leaders in their field and possess the expertise and affability to create a truly memorable experience for guests.”
