The idea of a round the world trip usually conjures up images of backpacks and long, boring bus and plane journeys doesn’t it? Well, if the idea of embarking on a round the world trip appeals to you, why not do it in a more civilised manner, on a round the world cruise.

With all the excitement that comes from being able to explore exotic locations and far off locales, but none of the hassle of airports and flights, a round the world cruise can be a perfect way to see the world.

See The World Without Flying

Most major cruise companies offer round the world itineraries which can last well over 100 nights. Imagine the wonderful new friends you could make on a journey of that length! You would get to know your fellow guests, the staff members, and probably end up making friends for life.

A round the world cruise is an excellent solution for anyone who is keen to see the world, but who doesn’t like to fly, or is perhaps is afraid of flying.

This type of cruise enables guests to visit numerous destinations, that wouldn’t otherwise be possible without enduring a flight or two. It’s also suitable for people who are perhaps less mobile, and feel the hassle of flying is too much for them.

Some so-called round the world cruises, don’t actually circumnavigate the globe- many focus on a few areas, for example Asia and Australasia.

Spend Longer In Port

Also, most round the world cruises allow guests to join the cruise for shorter periods of time, meaning that if you decided to do the whole round the world cruise, not all passengers on the ship would be there for the whole journey. Thus, allowing you to meet and interact with even more new people.

Another benefit of a round the world cruise is that the ships often spend longer in ports than they would if they were visiting as part of a week, or two week itinerary.

This can mean spending two days in a port, where you would have ordinarily only stayed for around twelve hours, giving you much more time to explore the area and what it has to offer.

With round the world cruises sounding this appealing, your only problems might be choosing exactly which itinerary to embark upon. And figuring out how not to leave the cruise a few stone heavier after over-indulging for 100 plus days!
