From Sea to Shining Sea

North America is home to two of our guest-favorite destinations: Alaska and Canada/New England. Not only do both of these locations appeal to a luxury traveler’s passion for discovery and examination of history, but also Alaska and Canada/New England both compete to produce the world’s most delectable seafood dishes.

Alaska’s calling cards are its king crab legs, smoked salmon and steamed halibut fresh from the icy cold waters of the Pacific Ocean. While the cities and towns along the picturesque coastline of the northeastern seaboard proclaim their century-old recipes of seafood chowder, lobster rolls and clam bakes are superior to all others. The only way to settle this seafood rivalry once and for all is to savor it for yourself. Spend this summer feasting on the rewards of the North Pacific Ocean and the upcoming fall season enjoying the foliage and the fare.

Below you will find a sampling of Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ FREE Unlimited Shore Excursions in both Alaska and Canada/New England that will make your mouth water:
