Worldwide Cruise Holidays
A worldwide cruise is the ultimate travel experience. Imagine spending up to three months of the year cocooned in 5-star luxury, while an ocean liner transports you to exotic destinations around the globe. At Co-operative Travel we offer a range of worldwide cruise deals to suit all budgets, from 3-month P&O cruises sailing round the world from Southampton, to budget transatlantic cruise-fly deals by companies like Celebrity Cruises.
The classic image of a luxury worldwide cruise is a 3-month voyage of discovery, circumnavigating the globe in either direction and finishing at the start point. Among the most popular worldwide cruises are those that follow the UK to Australia route, for example the worldwide Cunard and P&O cruises from Southampton. An example itinerary would be to cruise the Mediterranean, then pass through the Suez Canal to visit Arabia, India and Sri Lanka before crossing the Indian Ocean to visit Bangkok and Singapore. Travelling south to Australia and New Zealand, the cruise would then visit the South Pacific, USA and Caribbean via the Panama Canal before returning to Europe. Another route might take you from Europe to Africa, taking in the Indian Ocean and South America.
Remember there are many directions a worldwide cruise can take, and many departure ports, so if you’ve left it too late to get a berth on one of our P&O cruises, look at last minute worldwide cruises based at American ports like New York and Miami. You may also find a cheap worldwide cruise if you look outside the period between January and March – traditionally the most popular time to book.
Today, the worldwide cruise term has been extended to include transatlantic crossings covering two or more sections of a full world voyage, such as the 15-day cruise-fly holidays offered by Celebrity Cruises. Whether you’re interested in a 3-month luxury worldwide cruise, or one of our short-and-cheap worldwide cruise deals, at Co-operative Travel we have the solution.
