Artful Travelers Sets Sail in Celebration of the Best of British Drama, Including Downton Abbey and More

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - April 06, 2016) - Continuing a valued relationship with PBS stations across the country and Regent Seven Seas Cruises, Artful Travelers announces "The Very Best of British Drama", an additional post-cruise land program for fans of Downton Abbey and more.

"After 18 successful adventures aboard the fleet of Regent Seven Seas Cruises, we are thrilled to extend our hugely popular celebrations of public broadcasting at sea with this land-based excursion," says Artful Travelers President Kevin Corcoran. "It's another opportunity for fans and supporters of PBS to celebrate the acclaimed programming and personalities that shape the best television programming in the country."

"The Very Best of British Drama" is now available to guests on the upcoming September 22, 2016 sailing from Stockholm to Southampton. After a 12-night voyage aboard the all-suite, all-inclusive Regent Seven Seas Voyager, passengers who join this land program will set off on a magical two-night tour of London and surrounding areas. Guests will celebrate Downton Abbey with visits to both Bampton Village and the stunning Christmas special location Basildon Park. In London, participants will join show historian and best-selling author Jessica Fellowes (A Year in the Life of Downton Abbey) for an exclusive reception and then enjoy dramatic demonstrations during a behind-the-scenes tour at Shakespeare's legendary Globe Theater. The adventure is capped off by a performance of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, the Tony Award-winning stage production chronicling the rise of pop music icon Carole King.

"This is the perfect addition to the adventure of a lifetime for fans and supporters of PBS," says Corcoran. The preceding voyage aboard the Regent Seven Seas Voyager will include presentations by FRONTLINE Founder and Executive Producer David Fanning, acclaimed filmmaker Renata Simone and more as passengers visit ports of call in the Baltic and beyond.
