Can I book a luxury world cruise?

You definitely can book a luxury world cruise! You might think the pool to choose from would be small, but it’s actually quite easy to find plenty of choices to book a luxury cruise around the world. Whether it’s a Seabourn world cruise, Silversea World Cruise, or even the previously mentioned Cunard round the world cruise, each cruise line offers plenty of benefits that’ll ensure you’ll remain well taken care of for the entire voyage. With such a long voyage ahead of you, it makes sense that you’d want nothing but the best, and a luxury world cruise is most definitely that.

Don’t have enough time to complete a full luxury world cruise? Not to worry, many of these grand voyages offer luxury world cruise sectors and segments that can hopefully fit your own timetable and budget.

How long does a world cruise take?

World cruises often take at least 100 days to encompass the entire globe. More often than not, a world cruise can take between 120 to 140 days depending on the itinerary and to also allow guests plenty of time to truly experience each destination in its fullest). There is nothing worse than hopping off your ship during your world cruise and being told you only have 3 hours to explore the entire city! If you’re worried that a full round-the-world cruise might take up too much time, cruise lines often offer world cruise sectors, allowing you to experience some or most of the voyage.

Are world cruises worth it?

Definitely! If you can afford the upfront cost and have the time to do it, then a world cruise is the best way to see the globe.

Being able to unpack once and embark on a holiday to destinations all across the globe is only possible with a world cruise. With dining and select drinks included throughout your voyage, you’ll even be sorted budget-wise if you choose not to spend big on restaurants on shore. Plus, you’ll likely be sharing this voyage with like-minded adventurers, giving you the perfect opportunity to make life-long connections.

With great inclusions onboard, the ease of travel, and the chance to make lasting connections, a round-the-world cruise is undoubtedly worth it.
