Planet Cruise, UK-based cruise travel agency, has created a year-long cruise spanning the whole of 2017 which would be more cost effective than average living costs of cities like Sydney, London and New Yorkz.
For total annual average savings of GBP 2,656, city-dwellers could swap the hustle of life in a metropolis for wall-to-wall luxury on open seas, complete with spa treatments, fine dining and stopovers across the globe.
The 52-week voyage of Planet Cruise sets sails on January 2, 2017 and disembarks on January 5, 2018. The year of sailing is priced at GBP 24,000 and for this passengers could expect food, entertainment and accommodation for 2017.
To ensure The 2017 Cruise was a cheaper way to spend the year than living ashore in the world’s big cities, Planet Cruise researched the average living costs of 10 of the world’s most famous locations.
Looking at the comparative amenities that passengers would enjoy on the cruise, such as food and accommodation, as well as those that they would save for being on-board, for example commuting costs and utility bills, Planet Cruise ensure its 12-month holiday came in under the total price of city-dwelling.
Anyone who embarks on The 2017 Cruise will not have to compromise on their surroundings as the admission price to their cheaper year. The voyage is packed full of dozens of stunning stop-overs, with Christmas in the Canaries, Summer spent in Spain and Easter in Madeira.
It also takes in Dubai, which ironically is one of the locations shown to be more expensive to live in, by a total of GBP 4,668. That saving is dwarfed by that which is available to residents of Monaco. People living in the casino-filled principality could swap the grand prix-side roulette tables for those on-board the high seas and pocket the huge GBP 38,000 difference as well.
Across the Atlantic, New Yorkers and LA residents could also save four-figure sums by ditching land for the year and touring everywhere from the Caribbean to the Spanish Islands, all whilst enjoying complimentary cocktails along the way.
