SINK­ING

STAN­DARD BEDS Cruise lines are cot­ton­ing on to the fact we all love a good night’s rest so they’re up­ping the com­fort stakes in the mat­tress de­part­ment. Lines such as Princess have the award-win­ning Princess Lux­ury Bed, and Ocea­nia Cruises has the Pres­tige Tran­quil­ity Bed. But for pos­si­bly the best slum­ber you can ever have con­sider book­ing into the Re­gent Suite on Re­gent Seven Sea’s Ex­plorer. Hit the hay on the be­spoke Savoir bed – the mat­tress is filled with horse hair and worth $US150,000 (about $203,070).
