Explore the Globe on a World Cruise
What is a World Cruise?
If you love cruising, a world cruise has to be on your bucket list! A world cruise gives you the chance to see a large portion of the world in around 3 to 4 months, I personally can’t think of a more incredible and enriching opportunity. Forget backpacking in Europe, cruising the world really gives you first-hand knowledge of what traveling is all about. Plus, there are several perks you get when embarking on a world cruise that many cruisers are unaware of. If you are interested in a world cruise it’s best you do your research first; so, you’ve come to the right place!
How it Works:
When people refer to a world cruise they are usually talking about a cruise that lasts around 120 days and visits several ports. What’s really neat about these world cruises is that some of these ports tend to be off the beaten path. Essentially, world cruises give you the chance to explore locations that most people will never see in their lifetime. For instance, Easter Island, located about 2,000 miles from Chile is a very sought after destination but it tends to be extremely hard to get to this island. Flying to this location can be difficult and most cruise lines do not visit the island regularly because it is so far away from everything else. However, if a place like Easter Island is on your bucket list, a world cruise is your best bet for having the opportunity to explore this hidden treasure.
What’s really neat about a world cruise is that they are also offered in segments. So, back to the pervious example, say you want to visit Easter Island but traveling for 120 days is not feasible for you, you can book just a segment of that world cruise. If that sounds a little more like what you are interested in, it’s best to talk to one of our travel advisors for more information.
Why Take a World Cruise:
Beyond the fact that a world cruise is absolutely phenomenal there are several perks involved. First and foremost, you get to meet so many other like-minded individuals on your cruise. By the end of your time on a world cruise you will have had the chance to make friendships that will last a lifetime and before you know it you will be sailing with them again on your next cruise! A world cruise is a fabulous way to meet new people and really get to know them.
Another added perk that most people don’t think about is the service. As many of you know service on board a cruise ship is top notch. But, when you are on board for an extended period of time the staff will truly get to know you and what you really like which equals above amazing service. Anticipating your needs is just the start of it.
Don’t worry there is more! On a world cruise the cruise ship will often stay in ports stops much longer. Usually port stops are for the day but world cruises stay over night in some locations. As an added bonus several cruise lines will give their guests hotel packages and dining vouchers while in port. It’s a good idea to talk to one of our travel advisors about which lines offer these extra amenities. There are other bonuses as well, like huge amounts of on board credit, some can be over $1,000.
