A trip around the world is the dream of many a traveler; and, a cruise around the world is a luxurious way to go. Several cruise lines offer world cruises, which usually last for three or four months and visit multiple continents – and, some itineraries truly do circumnavigate the globe.
A world cruise will take you to a stunning variety of ports, letting you experience many different destinations, cultures and cuisines. World cruises also generate a special sense of community among the passengers. There’s lots of time to relax and unwind, enjoy the amenities of the ship, attend classes and lectures, and make new friends with others who love to travel.
If a cruise this spectacular sounds like it would be beyond your budget, talk with your Cruise Holidays personal cruise expert before you cross a world cruise off your bucket list. If you’ve ever thought about taking an extended winter vacation, or if you’re already a “snowbird” who spends the winter in a location warmer than your home, you may find a world cruise to be more affordable than you think.
Traditionally, world cruises begin in January and sail through March or April. There are a few exceptions, though, including an Oceania world cruise that departs from Miami on July 8, 2015. Still, most of 2015’s world cruises are underway. Looking ahead to 2016, Crystal Cruises’ Crystal Serenity will depart from San Francisco January 24 to spend 101 nights sailing to Sydney, Bali, Singapore, Shanghai, Tokyo and points in between.
Holland America’s Amsterdam will depart from Ft. Lauderdale January 5 for a 114-night voyage with a Panama Canal crossing. The ship will call on the western coast of South America, then sail to French Polynesia, Australia, Asia, the Middle East, the Eastern Mediterranean and Western Europe.
Princess Cruises’ Pacific Princess will depart January 3 from Ft. Lauderdale, though passengers can also join the ship on Jan. 20 in Los Angeles. The 111-night itinerary includes ports in Hawaii, Australia, Asia, the Middle East, the Mediterranean and the Caribbean.
