While there are plenty of cruises to choose from for your next restorative adventure, how many of them allow you to check 32 countries and all 7 continents off your bucket list in just 4 months? (Heck, how many of them actually last 4 months period?) Well, officially, just one: The Silversea World Cruise 2020 is taking up to 600 guests on a luxury trip around the globe.
In exchange for the hefty price that really only the 1 percent can afford, you’ll hit 62 different ports in 32 countries and all 7 continents, seeing more in a handful of months than most people will see during their entire lifetime.
The cruise—which doesn’t depart until 2020, hence its name—isn’t cheap: Tickets range from $62,000 for a one-bedroom suite to $240,000 for an Owner’s suite (AKA, your own onboard apartment!), which, unsurprisingly, mark the most expensive cruise prices in industry history, according to Travel + Leisure. But in exchange for the hefty price that really only the 1 percent can afford, you’ll hit 62 different ports in 32 countries across all continents, seeing more in a handful of months than most people do during their entire lifetime.
So, what can you expect on this ritzy, worldly cruise? The ship departs for its 140-day trek on January 6, 2020, from Fort Lauderdale. After going through the Caribbean and along South America, you’ll get to spot some wildlife on the Antarctic Peninsula. (Hello, baby penguins!) Next, you’ll see Cape Horn, Chile, Polynesia, Fiji, Australia, and Indonesia before embarking on the last leg of the trip. To finish things off, you’ll go through India to the Mediterranean, stopping in the Arabian Peninsula, the Red Sea, the Suez Canal, Southern Europe, Scandinavia, the British Isles, and Amsterdam.
And, bonus, the ship itself is as dreamy as the itinerary: There will be designer boutiques, a full-service spa, a fitness center, and a beauty salon onboard. Plus, you’ll have chic Italian linensand a refrigerator stocked to your liking in your room, as well as your very own butler service, T+L reported.
Heck, the staff will probably have to kick you off the ship at the end of the journey. Does “traveler at sea” count as a side hustle?
