About World & Special Cruises

Cruise around the world to experience different cultures, seasons and activities all in the one, exciting trip. An around the world cruise covers an array of options, from epic 180 day voyages, to special cruises crossing several countries. They offer passengers the opportunity to explore as much of the world as possible, with comfort and leisure in mind.

Typically, long world cruises depart in January, when the northern hemisphere is experiencing winter and the southern hemisphere is in the midst of summer, making this the most expensive time to book. However, it is possible to find world and special cruises at any time of the year, with themed cruises departing to coincide with festivals, seasons and events. Last minute deals are a great way to find around the world and special cruises at discount rates.

Around the world cruises stop at some of the most famous travel destinations across the globe. New York is among the most popular, with shore excursions including visits to the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Central Park and the Brooklyn Bridge.
