Oceania Cruises released a new global voyage for 180 days after a huge demand for its 2023 world cruise. The 2024 journey will start on Jan. 14 and visit more than 96 destinations in 34 different countries.
"Incredibly, last year our 2023 world cruise sold out in just one day, so for 2024 we are providing guests with more extended voyage options to deeply and meaningfully rediscover the world," Howard Sherman, President and CEO of Oceania Cruises, said in a statement shared with Travel + Leisure. "Around the World in 180 Days" cruise will depart from Los Angeles and travel through more than three oceans and 15 seas and then return to New York City. Also, travelers will visit more than 100 UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Firstly, the voyage will pass through the Pacific Ocean, then French Polynesia and Australia. Next stops: Japan and Vietnam's Ha Long Bay. After that, the journey continues along the shores of India and the Arabian Peninsula before sailing across Europe. The cruise will finish after crossing the Atlantic Ocean at New York. The cost for the "Around the World" starts at $48,499 per person and includes roundtrip first-class airfare and amenities like prepaid gratuities, laundry, and luggage delivery.
If you think half a year at sea is too long, the company provides four new Grand Voyages. Its length varies from 72 to 82 days.
"While a globe-circling journey is the pinnacle of life-changing travel experiences, we have specially curated a set of Grand Voyages for seasoned and time-rich travelers to navigate storied seas, straits, and oceans that boldly connect diverse and exotic corners of the globe," Sherman said. The four journeys include routes from Los Angeles to Sydney, Abu Dhabi to Tokyo, Mumbai to Tokyo, and Papeete to Cape Town. The voyages start at $15,199 per person and prices vary, depending on destination.
