Royal Caribbean is debuting the Ultimate World Cruise, a 274-night voyage that stretches across seven continents, 65 countries and paying a visit to 11 wonders of the world.

Serenade of the Seas will leave from Miami on December 10, 2023 and return to Miami and return on September 10, 2024. 

Bookings can be made over the phone from today, with an exclusive booking period for Royal Caribbean’s Crown and Anchor Society Diamond status members and above starting from now until October 26.

The journey will include 57 destinations new to Royal Caribbean and exclusive to the world cruise itself, with some highlights including Casablanca, Morocco, Qaqortoq, Greenland, Mount Fuji and more. 

Guests will get the chance to visit Machu Picchu in Peru, the Taj Mahal in India as part of the 150 destinations across 65 countries.

Michael Bayley, President and CEO of Royal Caribbean International said: “This is the world cruise of world cruises.”

“Now more than ever, people have resolved to travel the world and make up for lost time. Royal Caribbean is making that a reality with the ultimate vacation that welcomes those seeking adventure and exploration to taste, dance and dream with us around the world. To travellers asking themselves where they should go next, we say everywhere.”

Guests who book the full cruise will receive a business class airfare, premium transportation and an evening of celebration at a five-star hotel in Miami before the sailing begins. 

If you don’t have 274 nights to spare, you can rather book one of parts of which make up the world cruise.

Which is an Americas and Antarctica Expedition from December 10, 2023 to February 11, 2024, a Wonder of Asia and the Pacific Expedition from February 11 to May 9, 2024, a Middle East Treasures and Marvels of the Med Expedition from May 9 to July 10, 2024 and the final leg is Capitals of Culture, which goes from July 10 to September 10, 2024.
