Why You Should Go on a World Cruise
Retracing some of the most famous voyages of all time, the whole world will be within your reach as you sail around the globe on a truly epic adventure. World cruises are often seen as the pinnacle of cruising, and with good reason. If you’ve ever wondered whether a world cruise is for you, or you simply want to learn more about what to expect on a cruise that’s much longer than just a couple of weeks, then you’re in luck. Below are five reasons why you should sign up for a world cruise today!
1. See more of the world
With, on average, around 100 days and nights up your sleeve on a world cruise, you’ll definitely be able to see and experience a significant chunk of our planet. World cruises dock at between 30 and 50 ports (sometimes more) on a voyage. You’ll be able to experience the exotic sights, smells and tastes of South East Asia, feast on a curry or two in India, see the Old World European capitals, and spend an afternoon shopping in busy New York all on the one cruise in the span of about 3 months.
2. More time in key places
Embarking on a world cruise will give you much more time in key places around the world. Instead of leaving the next day, or even the same night – a common occurrence on shorter cruises – you’ll have much more time to explore a new port and immerse yourself in as much of the culture as possible. When you consider that many world cruises dock at such places as Bora Bora, Sydney, Kyoto and San Francisco – just to name a small handful – you’ll be glad you booked a longer cruise: these cities just beg for more than a single day or night of exploration! You’ll also feel less rushed and more relaxed as you won’t need to fit everything in in such a small amount of time.
3. More time to relax out at sea
A world cruise will also give you enough time to relax and recover from all your onshore explorations. Most modern cruise ships are literally decked out with all the amenities and facilities that will make your time out at sea most enjoyable. Passengers can swim on the rooftop pool, catch a movie or cabaret show, get a massage, or hit the gym and burn off all those excess holiday-mode calories.
4. Better entertainment onboard
True: most modern cruise lines – no matter what the length of the cruise – provide ample entertainment onboard. But the standards are simply raised on a world cruise. During the approximately three-month-voyage around the world, new acts and entertainment options will keep things interesting and exciting onboard. For example, you can shake your body to the rhythmic beats of South African tribal dancers when in one part of the world, tap your feet to some Latin big band numbers when in another, or zone out while listening to a Japanese Koto performance on the way back home.
5. Get to know your fellow passengers better
You’ll certainly have more than enough time to make new friends on a cruise around the world. In contrast to shorter cruises, where you can only make superficial friendships with fellow passengers, a longer cruise – such as a world cruise – will give you the chance to forge long-lasting friendships. And not just with the other passengers, but with the staff and crew, too.
