Ready for the trip of a lifetime? What about a nearly year-long adventure? Luxury cruise and travel brand Viking has introduced its newest cruise, and it has a 245-day itinerary. That’s right, eight months.
Currently the longest-ever continuous cruise publically offered, Viking’s new Ultimate World Cruise was designed for the perennially wanderlust-inflicted who are ready to cancel their plans for the majority of the year. The cruise is guaranteed to knock at least a few geographical items off your bucket list: 59 countries are represented in the cruise’s litany of ports-of-call.
Lucky travelers will venture to 113 ports, to be exact, for the what is likely to be the trip of a lifetime. Viking’s Sun will take passengers along the British Aisles, through the Arctic Circle, toward Canada, and down the eastern seaboard before landing in the Caribbean.
Next, visitors will make it to the “End of the World” in Argentina before traveling toward Tahiti, French Polynesia, and then all the way to Australia and New Zealand. The final 100 days will be spent exploring the Middle East and Asia, and the trip will close out in the Mediterranean.
Accommodations include luxurious staterooms decked out with king beds, large closets and bathrooms, and private verandas with once-in-a-lifetime ocean views.
The Swiss company’s Ultimate World Cruise departs on August 31, 2019 from London and has room for 930 passengers. Tickets are available, starting at $92,990 per person.
