Out-of-This-World World Cruise Deals

To truly experience this great planet, there's nothing like a world cruise. If you love basking in serenity and truly letting go, you'll love languid days at sea between ports. You'll get to know your other shipmates well and maybe even make lifelong friends. A world cruise offers all of these benefits and so many more while delivering the experience of a lifetime. A world cruise is typically a long cruise, with the majority sailing for more than 15 days. A grand voyage may last 70 or more nights, and it may circle the world or visit several continents.

A full around-the-world cruise will travel the globe and return back where you started, but other, segmented world cruises may only cover a few weeks or a month or two, ending in a different port than they originated. Another variant is a boomerang cruise: A boomerang cruise is a round-trip voyage in which you sail each way on a different ship, which provides more variety. These life-changing world tours are unique opportunities to experience our global community in so many awe-inspiring and authentic ways.

Online research or a cruise agent is the best resource for choosing the right world cruise for you. Chat with us today and we'd be glad to help.

What Is the Best Around-the-World Cruise?

What Is the Cost to Cruise Around the World?

How to Know if a World Cruise Is for You

For the best world cruise experience, you should consider some of these factors to decide if this kind of cruise is right for you.

  • Do you have the time? World cruises are usually the longest options possible, so it's important to remember this while considering a cruise. World cruises are often favored by retirees who don't have to take time off from work.
  • Do you like time at sea? You will get a lot of it on a cruise around the world. Thankfully, ships include plenty of entertainment for sea days.
  • Do you have a lot of stamina and enjoy the simple things? If so, you can get a lot out of a world cruise without feeling burned out on days at sea, and you're less likely to fall into a slump where all of the ports begin to look the same.
  • Are you sociable? You will definitely have close contact with many fellow travelers throughout the journey, so some patience and the ability to enjoy the company of a variety of people goes a long way.
  • Are you an experienced cruiser? Some people dive right into a globetrotting cruise their first time, but for the best world cruise experience, we recommend starting out with a shorter cruise of one to two weeks to see how you like life at sea.
