World Cruises

There is no better way to discover the many wonders of the world than with a world cruise. With a world cruise you can sail across oceans to experience different continents, countries, cultures and more. Island hop paradise in the pacific, sail through a modern world wonder – the Panama Canal, take in the sights, sounds and smells of South East Asia and the Middle East. Receive your most interactive history lesson yet in the Mediterranean, marvel at the bright lights of New York, sail under the magnificent San Francisco Bridge, cruise into Sydney Harbour – and so much more. The list is endless and the experience once-in-a-lifetime.

Set off on a full world cruise and you could be sailing the high seas and beyond for up to six months if it suits. The option to join a world cruise for a sector is also available and several varied itineraries exist to meet your every need. Choose from a whole host of shorter world cruises and discover destinations you had only dreamed of.

Popular sectors include Singapore to Southampton, Southampton to Dubai or Cape Town to Southampton. Where flights in to long haul destinations are required - eg Hong Kong, Mumbai, Sydney etc, cruise passengers often take the opportunity to add a couple of hotel nights, to explore these fascinating destinations both before and after their cruise.

What to expect from world cruises:

World Cruises departing from the UK generally start from Southampton and cruise westbound over to the US or cruise the Caribbean before sailing through the Panama Canal and across the Pacific, via Hawaii, to Australia and New Zealand.

Round the world cruises then normally continue around Asia before moving on to India, around the Andaman & Nicobar Islands, and then either through the Suez Canal and on to cruise the Mediterranean or around Africa before journeying up the South and North Atlantic. Some world cruises may sail eastbound but still take in most of the above cruise destinations. 

You can book a full world cruise holiday, normally from 80 to 110 days depending on the itinerary, or just book one or two world cruises sectors. If you choose these, you simply fly out and meet up with your desired ship during the world cruise. Spend longer in your destination of choice with a cruise and stay holiday or go all out and indulge with a luxury cruise

If you are interested in world cruise sectors or shorter voyages, you may also be interested in a transatlantic cruise, a cruise from New York or Red Sea cruise for something completely different.

What our customers say

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October.
