There are few experiences more aspirational than a fabled global voyage following in the footsteps of famous explorers and travellers throughout the ages. The desire to discover what lies beyond the horizon has been a part of the human psyche since time immemorial and many have dreamt of circumnavigating the globe, keen to escape the routine of everyday life.
Dream no more! World cruise prices are quite affordable in view of all the services provided and this is your chance to treat yourself to that holiday of a lifetime. From historical cities to remote paradise atolls, each day will bring new adventures, experiences and magical ports of call, beyond one’s wildest dreams.
Since 1922 when Cunard’s Laconia made the first passenger circumnavigation, both small and big ships schedule trips around the world, following in Magellan’s wake. And you can book an entire cruise around the world or just cruise on one or more segments of the cruise journey, as you prefer, to suit your needs and desires.
World cruises are something every cruise lover dreams of. If you have the time and the money to take a few months off to travel, world cruises allow you to unpack and settle in as your hotel moves with you and takes you to see a variety of continents, cultures, eco-systems and climates. There is no racing for trains and planes, no packing and unpacking every few days and minimal struggling with language barriers, a calm and carefree way to sample the globe’s delights.
The typical world cruise departs from late Fall to early Winter with a sailing length that ranges from 100 to 130 days. Travelers can book the entire voyage, or sail on one or more ’segments’, usually running from 10 days to two weeks, and operating much like normal cruises.
