An epic cruise around the world is set to sail in 2022, covering 16 countries across 104 days.
The best bit? You can opt to be on board for the bucket list journey.
Cunard’s Classic World Voyage offers calls to the likes of Greece, Dubai, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Australia, Bali, Abu Dhabi, Oman, Italy and Portugal, not to mention sailings through the Suez Canal.
It won’t all be fleeting visits either; passengers will get to enjoy overnight stays in hotspots including Haifa, Dubai, Hong Kong, Sydney and Singapore. There’s even a late night departure from beautiful Colombo in Sri Lanka.
Now, if you want to be on board for the whole journey, the experience comes with a hefty price tag, with rates starting from £11,499pp for an inside stateroom.
However, Cunard is breaking up the journey into six ‘legs’ – and passengers can opt to join for specific parts of the route if they’d prefer (also makes it a bit easier for those who have limited annual leave!).
The ocean liner hosting the cruise itself is pretty luxurious. The sailing takes place on board the company’s flagship Queen Mary 2, renowned for her lavish interiors.
We’re talking huge cabins with double beds and balconies so you can take in the ocean views from the comfort of your room, fine dining restaurants and heaps of entertainment.
Other perks for guests will include a swanky gala event, as well as access to a concierge and complimentary daily gratuities.
The 104 night voyage sets sail from Southampton on January 10th 2022 and returns on April 24th 2022.
Cunard president, Simon Palethorpe, said: “Our guests have told us they want memorable destinations which combine intrinsic glamour and heritage.
“This unique programme spans 16 countries, offering a combined 33 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, which we hope will combine the perfect blend of exploration on shore and relaxation on board.”
