There is nothing quite like a World Cruise. No other kind of holiday experience provides you with the opportunity to explore so much of the world while enjoying the luxurious surroundings of a beautiful cruise ship.
Our collection of cruises around the world in 2023 and 2024 includes voyages with a variety of cruise lines, including Regent Seven Seas, Silversea and Crystal Cruises. We also offer worldwide cruises with P&O Cruises, Cunard and Fred Olsen should you wish to avoid flying to an overseas embarkation port.
Don’t forget! As you might expect, World Cruises are incredibly desirable and nearly always sell out – sometimes up to a year before departure. This demand, coupled with the fact that around the world cruises are rarely subject to discounted fares, means that securing your suite or stateroom early is recommended to avoid disappointment.
Why Choose A World Cruise?
A World Cruise is the perfect choice if you are a regular cruiser looking for your next big adventure. Maybe you have visited many famous cruise regions on separate voyages and are now looking to combine these experiences into one unforgettable odyssey. Or perhaps cruising around the world aboard a cruise ship remains the only unticked box on your travel bucket list.
The practical attractions are apparent: Almost three full months circling a raft of all-encompassing natural treasures laid out one after another, day after glorious day. However, the spiritual benefits should also factor high in your consideration process. This unique travel experience will forge life-long friendships based on a one-of-a-kind shared experience.
Whatever your reasons for considering a World Cruise, it’s more than likely that the experience will live up to your every expectation. Throughout your voyage, you will enjoy balmy days at sea, moonlit ocean crossings, mouthwatering cuisine, fantastic service and all the benefits of packing and unpacking once.
World Cruise Lines
Nearly all of the major cruise lines offer a world cruise. From famous operators like Cunard to purveyors of small-ship luxury such as Seabourn and Regent Seven Seas, you’ll find plenty of choices available when it comes to choosing the line for your cruise around the world.
Here is a selection of our favourite world cruise lines:
- Crystal Cruises
- Holland America Cruise Line
- MSC Cruises
- Oceania Cruises
- P&O Cruises
- Regent Seven Seas Cruises
- Royal Caribbean International
In addition, several cruise lines offer specialist world cruises. For example, Silversea has operated an expedition world cruise designed to explore an array of remote regions in one extended voyage. While rare, these itineraries provide an alternative to the traditional experience but are often extremely popular, so booking early is advised.
World Cruises – Sectors & Shorter Voyages
Cruise lines operating World Cruises will occasionally divide up the itinerary and allow the shorter segments to be booked as separate voyages. These are known as ‘sectors’ or Grand Voyages.
World Cruise sectors have many advantages, especially if you cannot make allowances for being away from home for 85+ days. They are also ideal if you are considering a world cruise but are unsure whether you would enjoy being away for such a length of time. If you enjoy the experience, you can book safe in the knowledge that you will get the most out of it.
Finally, there are cost benefits, as booking a sector will be considerably cheaper than the cost of an entire round-the-world cruise.
