Are you someone who dreams of sailing way away with your favorite loved ones on a World Cruise? Perhaps to launch your retirement or to celebrate an important milestone in your life, be it a birthday or a special anniversary.
Well, you actually have quite a few choices to consider: Princess offers two global itineraries, with ships taking passengers to more than 40 destinations on six continents. Princess offers world cruising on two sister ships, the 670-passenger Tahitian Princess and 710-passenger Royal Princess, both offering 107-day itineraries that set sail from Ft. Lauderdale. The Tahitian Princess sailing leaves in January, ending in Dover, while Royal Princes' January departure winds up in Rome. Both itineraries feature travel to South America, the South Pacific, Australia, Asia, India and Egypt, with differing European segments.
Cunard Line's World Cruise offers amazing diversity. Sip margaritas on a beach in Puerto Vallarta, shop along the waterfront in Auckland, then wander ancient alleyways in Shanghai, watch children play in Mumbai, ride a camel in the Arabian desert near Dubai and so on. Not to mention the landmarks you will witness firsthand — the Panama Canal, the Great Barrier Reef, the Egyptian pyramids, the Athens Acropolis and much more.
Then there is your very elegant host for a sensational sailing - go around the world the new Queen Victoria for 105 days.
