(40) Span the World

Still can't decide where to cruise? Sail the globe with a 96-126 day world cruise. Some of the cruise lines that offer world voyages include: Regent Seven Seas, Silverseas, Cunard, Oceania, Holland America Line and Princess Cruises. Imagine sailing away from the United States to European destinations; then around the Mediterranean and through the Suez Canal and Red Sea to southern Arabia and along the coasts of India and Sri Lanka. Cross the Indian Ocean to visit Singapore, Bangkok and Hong Kong before traveling south to Australia and New Zealand. Continue sailing to explore the islands of the South Pacific and then Hawaii. Transit the Panama Canal or around South America to the islands of the Caribbean and back to the USA.

  • Best Bets: Too many to name.
  • Best Time: The most popular time for worldwide cruises is from January to March. Weather will depend on what part of the world you are in. Prices for world cruise range from $22,000 to over $100,000 per person.
Heads Up: Freighter travel is a no frills option for low cost around the world cruise travel. Meals are great, but there is no entertainment or ship sponsored shore excursions. However, picture traveling around the world in 102 days by freighter for as low as $12,000-$14,000.
