Do you have a spare $164,000 and 357 days? Well in just three-months, Mundy Cruising in the UK has organised the world’s most comprehensive cruise – think seven continents and seven cruise ships.
Currently, the world’s longest cruise on offer is 180 days – 177 days shy of what Mundy Cruises has planned. The odyssey takes in all of the world’s seven continents and is pitched as the “ultimate bucket list experience”.
The World of Travel Cruise includes once-in-a-lifetime adventures to destinations like the Maldives, Antarctica, Machu Picchu and Angkor Wat.
Starting in Miami in January 2017, you’ll sail to South America and on your first leg, you’ll club Machu Picchu, head up to Christ the Redeemer and cruise along the Amazon River.
The itinerary will include several of the world’s most luxurious cruise ships including Ponant’s Le Soleal, Holland America’s Maasdam, Crystal’s Crystal Serenity.
The remaining 263 of your trip will be broken up by continents with short breaks ranging from 13 to 39 days so you can go home and repack. Or if you’re missing the pooch of your grandkids.
“It has the appeal of a world cruise but can be done in manageable chunks,” a spokesperson from Mundy Cruising told The Telegraph UK. “It’s ideal for those who want the opportunity to return home and prepare for the next trip.”
On May 4, you’ll sail out of Athens on Oceania Cruises’ Nautica where you’ll visit destinations like Turkey, Spain, the UK, Russia and Sweden.
After another break, you’ll head to Vancouver on one of the world’s most luxurious ships, the Seven Seas Mariner where you’ll get the chance to explore Alaska, San Francisco and Costa Rica before sailing through the Panama Canal.
And if you think that’s it, think again.
The remaining seven months of your cruise will be spent sailing the regions of Asia and the Pacific. You’ll get to see the famous lizards on Komodo Islands, photograph the penguin colonies in Antarctica, shop and eat in Hong Kong, frolic in the crystal clear waters in Seychelles and explore the breathtaking Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
Finally, you’ll call it quits on May 18.
While it might cost a whopping $164,000, you’ll be visiting every bucket list destinations and includes business-class flights and all overseas transfers.
Sounds like your cup of tea? Better start packing – you’ve only got three months till this cruise sets sail!
