Grand Voyages and World Cruises
A 'world cruise' evokes a rather romantic image, reminiscent of the grand age of ocean travel, as you spend on average 100 nights cruising the high seas, exploring the world from the comfort of a floating hotel.
Many world cruises leave from the UK on a round trip, so there will be no need to fly at all. Generally departing in January, they are available in their entirety, or you may choose to join smaller segments of about 10 to 90 nights, often called 'Grand Voyages', adding more flexibility to suit your time, interests and budget.
It's usually advisable to book your world cruise (or Grand Voyage) in advance to ensure availability, particularly if a particular sector of the itinerary sells out, making it impossible to book the entire itinerary.
