What is a world cruise, they all sail the world?
If 4 months is too much, is the shorter 45 days tempting?
Every time you leave a ship, having got used to leaving your towels on the floor and going down to choose what you want from the terrific menu, you wish you could stay. What is the longest you have cruised? Maybe 21 days round the Mediterranean. What is the longest at sea? Maybe Southampton to Barbados, or Panama to Tahiti?
A world cruise, like the one we featured in a previous blog, the P&O Arcadia’s wonderful Polynesian & Asian Adventure is 114 days. That is nearly 4 months and is quite a commitment, but the sea crossings don’t get any longer, the holiday just gets better. As they say, you are only on this earth once and it is not a rehearsal. …. or you could leave you money in the bank – I don’t think so!
The P&O ship Oriana has never been on our rotation, however, I was just writing a blog on the Mexican port of Progreso and the trip to Chichen Itza, the Mayan and I discovered what a wonderful cruise the Oriana offers. Some of my favourite ports like Key West (Jean’s film available) which is often hard to find on a trip, and places on my bucket list like New Orleans.
Oriana leaves on a Caribbean and American Discovery on the 6th January 2018, a fifty-night cruise, which takes in these ports. Book three of Violet’s story American Portrait is set in the Caribbean.
