Royal Caribbean Announces The World's Longest Ever Cruise Holiday

The world's longest and 'most comprehensive' cruise around the world has just been announced by Royal Caribbean, and brace yourself, because it is a seriously expensive and extensive holiday.

In fact, the huge sail around the globe takes in all seven continents, stops in 65 countries, and will last for nine months.

Of course, you'll need the sort of money that allows you to take nine months out of your life to cruise the planet, and the whole lot will set you back between $66,000 and $112,000 per person, according to CNN Travel.

That's between £47,933 and £81,340 if you're working in British money.


Plenty, in short.

However, you get a fair amount for that price, you'll get business class airfare, transport, and you'll be put up in a five-star hotel ahead of the sailing.

This price doesn't include taxes and fees, however.


Speaking about their mammoth trip, Royal Caribbean International's president and CEO Michael Bayley 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."


Sounds great.

Should you decide to travel with them, you'll be travelling on the 294-metre-long Serenade of the Seas, which boasts 13 decks and room for 2,476 guests.

On board, it also has an arcade, a rock-climbing wall, and a theatre, as well as a mini-golf course.


So, let's have a look at the itinerary shall we?

After setting sail from Miami, you'll be heading off around the Caribbean, before stopping at various points in Central and South America, as well as scheduled visits to Rio de Janeiro and Argentina.

In total, 150 places including Greenland, Morocco, Japan, India, and Peru will be visited. Not just anywhere in those places, either.


The cruise will take in 11 wonders of the world, such as the Taj Mahal and Machu Picchu.

There's four main categories that you can choose to experience all or some of, they are the Americas, Antarctica, Asia and the Pacific, the Middle East, the Mediterranean, and northern Europe.

All in all, it's a hell of a journey, if you've got the cash and the time to take it on.
