Vacationers on cruises around the world are able to experience culture-rich opportunities while sightseeing on multiple continents. Combine exciting land tours with leisurely days at sea. Fulfill your dreams and book a world cruise to explore the globe!
You are not alone in your dream to discover what lies there, beyond the horizon... It has been a part of the human nature since immemorial time. It was not until 1922, when the first passenger circumnavigation was made by Cunard Line that adventurous souls could follow Magellan's way around the world.
"Around the World Cruise"
"Around The World" cruises are the perfect voyages for those who want it all. This kind of cruise vacations is an opportunity to explore beautiful landscapes, diverse cultures and wildlife on earth. As they last as long as 110 days, dock at upwards of thirty ports, round the world cruises take guests to the globe's most exciting destinations in comfort and style. Another option for travelers who think it's much time at sea, is taking just an itinerary section (one of the smaller segments), so as to explore one region only.
Cruisers who look for stunning landscapes, histories, exotic wildlife, fine beaches, or first class cuisine are certain to find the ideal destination on round the world itineraries. The main World Voyages attraction is that they allow you visit far-flung destinations in one package, for example- the Mediterranean & the South Pacific, without the typical of travel drawbacks. Go and see exotic locations, and then return to your ship for dinner and entertain yourself. And imagine this goes on and on for so many days... Sounds like perfectly splendid to me!

Is the World Cruise cost worth it?
There are people who really love the endless lazy days at sea with little to do. For others, the joy of cruising is to be able to visit different new places all around the world in a short time.
What about Around The World cruise ships offers, then? Will you survive after experiencing all the long days at sea (for example, an Australia-Southampton sector lasts 40 days)? If your answer is "not sure", better book two shorter voyages instead- thus you'll have more call ports and more new impressions. Just look carefully at the new-issued itineraries before you book a world cruise.
The atmosphere onboard Round The World cruise ships is very different from Mediterranean or Caribbean cruise vacations, so choose the world cruise line very carefully! Lots of people believe that you have to be old enough and retired to set sail on a Grand Voyage. True, and not so true. There are plenty of still working people onboard who have persuaded employers to give some months off. And all of them are mid-class and above, and most of them are really really really affluent.
Before committing to a World Voyage of three or more months away from home, bear in mind a few things first:
- World Cruises deals present a great chance to see interesting parts of the globe, but better work out the number of sea days included in cruise deals, first. With more ports of call in your itinerary, you will be swept off your feet by the exotic sites and forget to think about the long days at sea in between.
- If you don’t have the money and time for sailing all the way around, better book a segment! Companies have amazing organisation- some passengers get off here, others board there.
- Around the world cruises attract older people just because they have the time (and money, of course) to be away for several months. You want to show the kids new cultures? Forget about world cruising and book two shorter cruises instead!
- The irony about "Around The World" voyages is that actually they don't sail fully round the world. On the other hand, it is true that these voyages, lasting from more than seventy, and up to 116 nights, offer vacationeers the chance to see diverse cultures wrapped into one single voyage. Even those who cannot commit to full voyage, can participate through the popular "segment" option, ranging from a week to more than one month.
- Most "world cruise ships" usually start their Grand Voyages in January and the itineraries end in March-April-May. However, after Australia became a hot ship travel vacations destination in 2015, some of the companies offer roundtrip "World Cruise" deals from Sydney Australia. These itineraries often start in May, and even in July.
