While every cruise offers an unforgettable holiday experience, none are quite so special as a round-the- world voyage. Once reserved for wayfaring explorers, circumnavigating the globe by sea is now something everyone can enjoy — for a price, of course.
But while you’d expect world cruises to be incredibly expensive, book with Cruise1st, and we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Our round-the- world cruises are more affordable than you might think, meaning just about anyone can sail all seven seas in a single trip — provided you can get the time off work that is.
Choose to cruise for 100 nights or more, and you truly are in for the trip of a lifetime. Most of our world cruises take in most, if not all, seven continents, helping you tick off every destination on your wish list in one fell swoop. Travelling the world might sound an endeavour undertaken by intrepid young backpackers not afraid to slum it, but a world cruise lets you see every corner of the globe in complete luxury and comfort — so you can forget about dodgy hostels and thirty-four hour bus journeys in the sizzling heat.
The best thing about world cruises is their flexibility. Depending on your budget and time restrictions, you can cruise for as long as you want — be it 19 nights or 99 nights. Passengers are free to embark and disembark as the destinations which suit them, so you don’t have to commit to the full itinerary if you wish. Like the sound of a world cruise?
