Are F1 and cruising a viable part of a sustainable future?

Regent Seven Seas Cruises and Aston Martin Aramco Formula One Team have announced a new Spotlight Voyage as part of their partnership, hosted by former Formula 1 driver Pedro de la Rosa. The voyage will offer F1 fans aboard the Splendor vessel access to a host of exclusive motorsport experiences, culminating with the chance to attend an Aston Martin Aramco Race Weekend Experience in Hungary, after the Spotlight Voyage.

F1 & Cruising: The Future

Luxury cruising and Formula 1: they’re two of life’s ultimate luxury pursuits, but not known for being the most eco-conscious industries. But there are the capacity and resources available within both to be a real driving force for change. So, what progress is being made? Aston Martin F1 team partner Aramco made history by becoming the first to commit to using 100 percent renewable fuel by 2026. The team has achieved ISO 50001 certification, a globally recognised standard for energy management systems, making it the first Formula One team to comply with this environmental standard. 

During a factory tour at the Aston Martin Aramco F1 HQ, we witnessed how budget caps within the sport are also leading to less waste and increased reuse and recycling in every aspect of production. This duality between responsible individual and business choices and governance intervention shows where the most headway is possible. Meanwhile, Regent Seven Seas Cruises has signed up to the Race To Zero campaign to be net zero by 2050, implementing environmental stewardship campaigns and promoting responsible waste management. But there remains some way to go before F1 or large-scale cruising become the most eco-friendly endeavours.

During the Spotlight Voyage, guests will have the opportunity to engage with Aston Martin Aramco’s sustainability and community efforts through workshops, panel discussions, and interactive experiences. And for F1 fans the cruise will feature special “Race Day” themed dishes, cocktails, and culinary classes, plus the opportunity to engage with former F1 star Pedro de la Rosa with meet and greets and Q&As.

The Spotlight Voyage will visit destinations steeped in motor racing history, including Barcelona, Spain, and Monte Carlo, Monaco. Guests will be able to participate in shoreside experiences such as visiting famous racetracks, exploring private car collections, and attending an Aston Martin Aramco Race Weekend Experience in Hungary. There will even be a full-size replica of the Aston Martin Aramco F1 car on board and an F1 simulator for passengers to test their skills. 


Prices for the Spotlight on Aston Martin Aramco Formula One® Team voyage start from £7,949 per guest |Some shoreside experiences will be at an additional cost and have limited capacity |

Introducing August, The Better Way To Own Holiday Homes

How Does It Work?

August facilitates effortless holiday home ownership; with fractional ownership, multiple people can own and enjoy up to five residences across Europe. August finds, buys, designs and renovates all five homes to an exceptional standard across five sought-after European destinations, taking care of all admin and maintenance – and you get to call all of them home for less than the price of one.

It’s the next level in effortless travelling and home-ownership, and members of August’s exclusive community holiday an average of 12 weeks per year. There are five collections to choose from, spanning Europe’s most iconic destinations, including the French Riviera, Tuscany, Mallorca, the Alps and the Cotswolds – all highly-sought regions you’ll want to visit year-round, with easy flight connections. Each home is welcoming, family friendly and features stylish yet timeless interiors curated by experts, charmingly matched to the destination.

Why It Makes Sense

Full Ownership

Not only will you get to holiday in these five gorgeous houses, but every family or individual has collective ownership. This is an equity purchase, with real ownership, transparency and control.

More For Your Money

With shares starting from €365,000, you can part-own over €7,500,000 of prime real estate for a fraction of the cost. Plus, with five destinations at your disposal, you’re not restricted to just one property to call your second home.


August takes all of the hassle out of holiday home ownership, managing the purchase, maintenance and management of every home, including everything from housekeeping to gardening, cleaning the pool filter to paying the bills. If you’ve been put off holiday home ownership due to language barriers, unfamiliar legal and administrative processes, a lack of market expertise or simply not being in the area for viewings, August is the perfect antidote, allowing you to simply show up after all the hard work has been done, lie back and enjoy your dream property.


With a wealth of experienced interior designers underpinning the collection, your five properties are carefully renovated and designed to expertly blend home comforts with modern technology. Welcome home.
