World cruise? If 4 months is too long then is the shorter 45 days tempting? The Oriana leaves on a Caribbean and American Discovery on the 6th January 2018 and with the autumn weather here in the UK before the end of August and leaves dropping fast I feel a need for sun and escape. A long cruise is such an experience. If you have done a short cruise surely leaving the ship has been hard; having got used to leaving your towels on the floor and going down to choose what you want from the terrific menu, surely you wish you could stay. A world cruise, like the one we featured in a our 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 feel long, 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.
