For anyone who has ever taken a cruise and didn’t want it to end, Cunard Line is offering a unique opportunity to sail around the world on 132-day or 120-day voyages.
Cunard released its 2017 Exotic Cruises & Full World Voyages Program last week, and three of the wildest journeys announced featured a 132-day voyage with 40 ports in 23 countries, a 120-day cruise with 32 ports in 17 countries and another 120-day journey with 39 ports in 25 countries.
For those cruise enthusiasts looking to spend the most time at sea, the 132-day excursion will take place on Cunard’s flagship, the Queen Mary 2. Leaving on Jan. 3, 2017, passengers will travel 37,000 nautical miles and visit locations like England, Australia, South Africa, China, Egypt, Jordan and many others.
The starting price for the 132-day trip is $22,399 per person.
Other people who love cruises would be happy spending just four months at sea, so the 120-day option could be more fitting. The biggest choice for most will be which ship to choose, the Queen Victoria or the Queen Elizabeth.
The Queen Victoria will take passengers throughout South America and beyond. The ship will pass through the Strait of Magellan and onto the Amazon River as it explores the continent. After South America, the vessel will sail to the South Pacific Ocean and eventually back through Central America and the United States en route back to England.
On the other hand, the Queen Elizabeth will leave Southampton, England, on Jan 7, 2017, and will make ports of call along the way in Mexico, Samoa, Tonga, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, China, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia and several other countries.
The starting price for both 120-day journeys is $19,999 per person.
