How to choose world cruises? Here is a list of things to consider.

  • Duration: Not all world cruises involve the circumnavigation of the entire globe, therefore the duration may vary. Normally, a cruise to qualify as world cruise must be longer than 50 days.
  • Itinerary: Another thing to bear in mind is which places you want to explore  more than others, different cruises are intended to stop over for more days in some places so be ready with a list of priorities.
  • No-fly ocean cruising: Decide whether you like a totally no-fly cruise or you are up to embark on a plane to speed up your trip. You are able to see more destinations within the same days of cruising if you decide to take a flight. In fact, navigating the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans add on an average of 20 days at the sea!
  • Sector option: most cruise lines supply a sector option on their world cruises, this means that you can join a world cruise for a shorter time. There is an increasing number of people who choose this option, this is also a good way to test whether seeing the world from a cruise ship is the ideal experience for you.
  • Budget: world cruises are erroneously considered a very expensive way to see the world, but this is not true. In fact, you can depart on a round the world cruise from as little as per £80 per person per day and this includes your accommodation, meals and all the supplementary on board entertainments, activities and facilities.
