In today’s fast-paced, sleep-deprived society, maintaining personal health is a full-time job. And for clients who want to learn how to keep themselves in tip-top shape, Regent Seven Seas Cruises is the place to be. In 2008, the line will help clients achieve physical and mental well-being with two European voyages featuring celebrated nutritional counselor and life-extension specialist Dr. Oz Garcia. The doctor will host “Wellness and Balance With Oz Garcia” a special new Circles of Interest enrichment program offered by the cruise line.

Known as the “nutritionist to the stars,” Garcia has been featured in Vogue, Self, Allure, The New York Times and Sports Illustrated. He has appeared on television programs like 20/20, 48 Hours, The View and VH1 Rock Bodies, and has worked with a variety of A-list stars. Now, clients can work directly with the best-selling author on the 700 guest, all-suite, all-balcony Seven Seas Voyager.

The first cruise departs on May 26, on a seven-day Adriatic/Greek Isles cruise to Corfu, Mykonos and Nafplion, Greece; plus Dubrovnik, Croatia and Koper, Slovenia before ending in Venice. On June 2, Seven Seas Voyager departs Venice for a seven-night journey to Korcula, Croatia; Sarande, Albania; Naxos, Sicily; Sorrento, Italy and Civitavecchia (for Rome), Italy, concluding in Monte Carlo on June 9.

“We are pleased to provide Regent guests with personal access to Oz Garcia, a highly acclaimed wellness expert,” said Sophie Vlessing, vice president, customer strategy and marketing for Regent. “Our 2008 Circles of Interest programs continue to offer unparalleled experiences for Regent guests as they gain insight and enrich their lives through the pursuit of a wide variety of personal interests.”

“Wellness and Balance with Oz Garcia” is one of a group of 2008 Circles of Interest programs offering guests exclusive onboard and shore-side experiences featuring world-class lecturers, instructors and authorities from the realms of art, cuisine, history, conservation, photography and wellness.
