MIAMI – For all those who have “see the world” on their bucket list, Oceania Cruises has announced a cruise that will circumnavigate the globe in 180 days. “Around the World in 180 Days” will take guests to five continents, 44 countries and 89 ports of call.
The inaugural cruise departs from Miami on Jan. 10, 2015 and returns on July 8. The voyage includes 11 overnight calls, plus four two-night calls in Cape Town, South Africa; Yangon, Myanmar; Singapore; and Shanghai.
“We wanted to create a unique port-intensive voyage that reflects the dreams of the true explorer, rather than speed across the seas racing to the next convenient port as is the norm in a typical 100- to 110- day world cruise,” said Kunal S. Kamlani, Oceania’s president. “By eliminating the 100-day time constraint, we freed ourselves to conceive a remarkable dream voyage designed to visit the world’s most fascinating destinations.”
Passengers will sail aboard the 684-guest Insignia along with a one-night pre-cruise hotel in Miami. The itinerary also includes free shore-side events in Walvis Bay, Namibia; Myanmar; Bangkok; Beijing and Honolulu.
All guests will receive a free visa package, unlimited Internet, laundry service, luggage deliver, roundtrip transfers and free onboard medical service.
