Have you ever wanted to see the world but decided to hold back because researching hotels and destinations seems daunting? Then you should look no further than at a world cruise. On a world cruise, you’ll stop at several ports in dozens of countries. One week you’ll be sipping mai tais on a beach in Bora Bora, and another, swimming with dolphins in the Bahamas. World cruises usually are from three months and up and can be a bit pricey. But here are three affordable cruises you can book.
Viking World Cruise
On the Viking World Cruise, you’ll visit 28 countries over 138 days. The trip begins in Ft. Lauderdale. According to the Viking website, you can explore Miami’s art deco or grab a Cuban sandwich in Old Havana. From here, you’ll sail through the Gulf of Mexico to visit Mayan religious sites and then eventually on the Pacific Ocean, where you’ll be able to go back in time as you cross the International Date Line. Finally, the cruise ends in London, where you can visit the royal palaces.
Pricing starts at $59, 995.
