You could go around the world in 80 days, but why not savor the experience on this groundbreaking 180-day world cruise from Oceania Cruises. This cruise line, which has a strong focus on fine cuisine, will be hosting their very first world cruise in 2015 aboard the Oceania Insignia. Most cruise lines offer world cruises that last between 90 and 100 days, so this is a true extended adventure that will leave you with stories, memories and photos for a lifetime.
The sailing starts on January 10, 2015 in Miami and concludes on July 8 at the same port. After embarking, the cold month of January is spent in the warm tropical isles of the Caribbean, Brazil and French Guiana. Then the ship crosses the Atlantic where February will be spent in Africa rounding the Cape of Good Hope and then making way to Asia. March and April take passengers from the Seychelles to India, to Southeast Asia, China and Japan. May is spent sailing around Australia and New Zealand. Then June is spent in the South Pacific with stops in Tahiti and Hawaii and then along the east coast of the U.S. The final weeks of the cruise take passengers to Mexico and through the Panama Canal.

After reading one of The Cruise Web’s last postings, “Homeports: Busting the Myth”, I rushed to my hometown to get my Philly cheese steak fix. I walked into Jim’s on South St. and ordered the usual: whiz without, with mushrooms and sweet peppers. The steak was gigantic and I couldn’t help but think, “Man, sometimes bigger is just better.” This is true of many things: a big Terps basketball win over Duke, a big bone-in rib eye on the Emerald Princess, and the big brand-new Oasis of the Seas.
While these things are wonderful to me, a BIG VALUE is something we can all appreciate. This is why we all enjoy cruising! One of the biggest values that many cruisers do not know about is the WORLD CRUISE. Almost every cruise line offers their own version of a world cruise. World cruises sail between January and May for between 90-120 days. These voyages visit the world’s most well-known sites and offer the convenience of an around-the-world voyage while only unpacking once! [Read more →]
