Cruises Around the World: Why You Should Just Do It
Around the world cruises or world cruises are a current hot industry trend nowadays. This year, you can see more sailings in longer voyages to newer destinations – and who wouldn’t want to explore the world in all its beautiful glory? Imagine yourself on an all-in-one cruise to everywhere – wouldn’t that be magical?
Cruising is a bucket-list, once-in-a-lifetime kind of travel, and you’d be surprised to find that world cruises lure travellers of any age. It’s perfect for travellers looking for immersive experiences, both onboard and beyond the pier.
In this blog, we’ll feed you with some insider info on what world cruises are really like, and perhaps prove to you how viable they really are – even to most ordinary cruisers.
World Cruise Fact #1: You can Book a Segment of a World Cruise
World Cruises can run from around three to four months (sometimes even longer!), however, some cruise lines allow you to book a segment of a world cruise. So, if you just fancy a bite sized portion of the journey, but still want to see multiple destinations all at once, then this may be the perfect option for you.
The best part about this really is getting inspired by the passengers you meet onboard a world cruise. How did their passion for travel get them there? Go ask them yourself!
World Cruise Fact #2: There’s a LOT to do both on the Ship and Off It
Think you’ll be bored onboard? No chance! The thing about cruise ships is that there’s ton to do both onboard and at the port.
While onboard, you can attend enrichment classes and seminars such as Digital Learning classes, cooking classes, and entertainment options such as first-time premieres of films that haven’t been out yet, Broadway-calibre plays and performances, and more! You can also relax in the lounge with a good book, take a swim in the pool, dine at any of the specialty restaurants, practice your golf swing, have fun with the kids at the waterslides or FlowRider, or simply stay in bed! The choice is absolutely yours!
Looking for adventure? Every destination is an adventure waiting to happen – there’s a whole world of discovery that awaits! You could go on a cruise expedition to explore fascinating wildlife, breathtaking landscapes, and exciting points of interests like active volcanos, ancient dig sites, and some of the tallest waterfalls in the world.
World Cruise Fact #3: You Can Go Around the World… Literally
Arguably one of the best travel experiences on Earth is to circumnavigate it – let’s go on a world cruise!
Just like Spanish explorer Ferdinand Magellan’s first world circumnavigation in the 1500’s any world cruise is an epic journey of immense proportions. Most world cruises range from 80 to 150-night itineraries from renowned cruiselines such as Costa Cruises, Cunard, Holland America Line, MSC Cruises, Oceania, Princess Cruises, P&O, and more! And Viking Ocean Cruises sports the longest cruise itinerary called the “Ultimate World Cruise” – an incredible 244-night itinerary sailing the seven seas and quite a few oceans to touch base at some amazing ports… want to join a 2020 voyage?
