Several cruise lines offer worldwide cruises, and some of these include Cunard, Fred Olsen Cruises, Oceania Cruises and P&O Cruises. A worldwide cruise can either be taken as one complete voyage lasting upwards of 50 days on average, from beginning to end, or guests can decide to only take one or two segments of the journey, visiting specific areas they are most interested in. This segment option is particularly useful to those travellers who simply can't get several months off from work that a full world cruise will require.
All worldwide cruises explore destinations that are common favourites among passengers, and also include certain new regions with maiden ports of call. These ports are new to the specific cruise line and were only chosen after much research was conducted. This means that world cruisers are usually among the first to go to a new port that the cruise line has developed, since no other ship in that line will have stopped there yet.
World cruises can embark and disembark in a variety of ports around the world, but many begin in Southampton. The main point of a world cruise is that it is possible do it without ever having to take a single international flight, which for many is a real selling point.
World cruises are special as no matter which cruise line you take, the service and facilities are increased to a higher standard. Most cruise lines will specially select the staff who will work these specialised routes and only the best and most experienced will be offered these positions. Everything about a world cruise is special. Pillow gifts are usually left in guests cabins during each segment of the voyage, and these will usually be items of high quality, such as warm parkas when the ship is sailing into colder weather.
As with the service, the food served too will be better than the normal, with specialist chefs being brought onboard to ensure the presentation of the many regional dishes that will be prepared as the ship sails to a many different ports. Activities and entertainment will also offer more variety and be of higher quality on a worldwide cruise, and certain cruise lines will even bring onboard some top stars to perform.
A full enrichment programme will be offered on most world cruises, with expert guest lecturers specialising in the areas being visited. Amongst these there may even be household names to cruise passengers, such as former heads of state, astronauts or other folk of some renown.
Whichever format you choose for a worldwide cruise, either the full cruise or just a couple of segments, know that you are among the elite and lucky few if you get to take such a journey.
