(12:55 p.m. EST) -- Luxury line Regent Seven Seas Cruises in 2019 is launching two new excursion options -- Go Local tours and Regent Choice small group tours -- to provide passengers with more intimate insights into the culture of a destination.

Go Local tours, available on itineraries in the Mediterranean, Northern Europe and South America, introduce passengers to locals to allow for more intimate insight into natives' lives and customs. Among the planned experiences are learning cheese-making at a goat farm in Andalusia, fishing with Portofino residents and watching artisans at work in Palma de Mallorca. About 50 of the 122 Go Local options are included in the cruise fares.

Regent Choice small group tours, available for a supplementary fee, are smaller versions of the line's popular complimentary excursions and Regent Choice tours. The number of cruisers is capped at 16 to allow for more personal engagement with the local guide. About 250 excursions in Mediterranean and Northern Europe will be offered as Regent Choice small group tours. The 250 planned excursions are focused on proven areas of interest for Regent passengers: food, wine, art, architecture and UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

"Our guests' desire to learn about the people, cultures and natural wonders of our world is the inspiration behind Go Local tours," said Jason Montague, president and CEO of Regent. "These experiences will be exceptional."

The Regent Choice small group tours, he said, would "allow for deeper, more meaningful conversations, interactions and explorations during many of our most popular tours.
