The desire to cross oceans and explore new lands has been an integral part of human nature since the earliest times. Discover new countries, experience different cultures and explore unforgettable scenic splendours with the ultimate cruise holiday, a world cruise.
The experience of a full world cruise voyage is something simply unforgettable, though many passengers each year opt for a shorter Liner Voyage, or World Cruise Sector sailing - which typically takes in a particular leg of the cruise. Here you can do a shorter sailing anywhere from 18 nights up to about 80.
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 help explore these fascinating destinations either before or after the 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. Not forgetting that you could sail out for a Christmas cruise this year, making your holiday that little bit more special.
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 sections. If you choose these, you simply fly out and join the world cruise, plus you have the added option of enjoying a stay and cruise holiday by adding a hotel stay before and after your word cruise holiday. Why not experience the ultimate world cruise by indulging in a luxury cruise?
If you are only interested in booking a certain section of a world cruise, it may be easier to take a look at all our cruise holidays and book it separately. Book a Transatlantic cruise on a cruise from New York or a Red Sea cruise and explore the ancient mysteries of Egypt.
