A cruise allows passengers to travel the world in style and comfort, experiencing breathtaking views from right outside their cabin door with everything needed for a luxurious holiday under one roof.
Whether reaching far-flung corners of the globe or exploring waterways slightly closer to home, cruise lines are growing in popularity.
In fact, there was a record number of almost two million British passengers that booked a cruise last year and this figure is expected to rise throughout 2018.
To celebrate this rise in popularity, one cruise line is taking cruising that one step further, offering passengers the trip of a lifetime.
The Luxury cruise line, Silversea Cruises hopes, to be the first to offer an around the world cruise.
Taking 140 days, the cruise will stop at 33 countries across all seven continents allowing passengers to travel around the world with little effort on their part.
The ship would be able to carry 382 passengers and will set sail on 6 January 2020 from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, stopping at a total of 62 ports.
According to USA Today, the cruise would leave Florida, heading south to the Caribbean, Brazil, Uruguay, and Argentina before moving towards the Antarctic.
Heading back north, passengers would cruise towards Chile, across the Pacific to Easter Island, Pitcairn Island and French Polynesia.
From here the ship will move on towards Tona, Fiji, Vanuatu, and Australia then onto Asia. Guests will stop in Indonesia Singapore and Thailand, followed by Sri Lanka, India, Oman, Jordan, and Egypt and then on towards the Suez Canal.
Reaching the Mediterranean, guests will explore Italy, Spain, and Portugal before moving on to Northern Europe where they’ll stop in the UK and Norway.
However, a cruise of this duration does not come cheap.
A trip around the world will set passengers back an upward cost of £44,000 per person based on a double cabin.
This price does, however, include hotel accommodation in Fort Lauderdale, business class flights, transfers, over £2,800 onboard spending money per cabin and complimentary laundry service and Wi-Fi.
Although passengers will be able to explore lengthy excursions, their time on board will not be dull. The ship features two libraries, a casino, pool, spa and a gym to name just a few attractions.
In a conversation with Travel & Leisure, the companies chief marketing officer, Barbara Muckermann, said: “We have sought feedback from our most loyal World Cruisers in order to create the only seven-continent World Cruise available.
“Silversea invites the curious, the adventurous, and the pioneers of travel to experience the earth’s most authentic beauty, which remains out of reach for most.”
