Got 8 Months? See The World By Cruise Ship! The $250k Trip Of A Lifetime!

Ready To See The World – By Boat?

When I saw this story, I got a serious case of “wanderlust” – spend almost a year at sea – and see the world!

The cost? Only 194,000 British Pounds, or approximately $250,000!

The world’s longest cruise is being offered – right now – by Viking Ocean Cruises. It lasts eight months and takes you to everywhere in the world you could want to go!

Need proof?

The Daily Mail had this great map that shows off all of the incredible locations you will visit during the trip, like Machu Pichu…

Oh, and you don’t have to worry about being in a cramped room for your journey, if you are willing to go all out…

As The Daily Mail reports, the Owner’s Suite on the Viking Sun is three times bigger than the average new house in the UK!

It includes a living room, adorned with original artwork, a veranda, an ocean-view dry sauna, a 12-person boardroom, dining room, kitchen, extensive wine collection and in-suite chef.

Don’t worry, there are some more, shall we say, reasonable options for this trip. A standard room for the whole trip starts at £66,990, roughly $85,000 – not so bad for 245 days of incredible adventure!

The Daily Mail has all the details on the almost-year long journey:

“The itinerary — which takes in 53 countries on six continents — includes explorations of the world’s most thrilling landscapes, from the Great Barrier Reef to the Amazon rainforest, as well as visits to architectural wonders such as Machu Picchu in Peru, and Angkor Wat in Cambodia.You are on board for 245 days, and so 245 different menus you shall have.”

The Daily Mail also has all of the information you need to know about the food and beverage service provided as well:

‘We have a different menu for every day, and some surprises along the way, too,’ says Anthony Mauboussin, Viking Cruises’ culinary director. ‘We keep meals exciting and varied, while creating delicious food.’ This means destination-themed choices and appearances by guest chefs.

In all, the ship’s eight dining venues and three bars will get through 10,000 bottles of Champagne and 90,000 bottles of wine on each trip, as well as 160,000 lb of fish and seafood, 900,000 eggs and 10,000 lb of prime steak.

That should take care of me!

Bravo as always to “DailyMail.com” for the story – see more photos and details here at their terrific website:

It reminds me that mega-cruise ships can take you anywhere in the world – even if at times they can disrupt the local environment….

Residents in Venice Italy have voiced concerns about the impact that the ships have when dispersing thousands of tourists for a day…you can read more about that story here:

  1. If I had 85k, I Would do it. I have seen prices for 22k, but the ship was,probably not as nice. It was for four months not 8. Still, I would love it.

  2. I would love to see more of the world that would reduce my bucket some..But 8 months on a boat ..Not for me 🙂 A mixture of boats and trains might do the trick 🙂

  3. I have a friend who did this cruise with her husband and she said it was a dream come true. I would love to be able to do something like this, but I’ll have to win the lotto first!!

  4. It is wishful thinking for me. But it does sound wonderful I really have to plan for it, and do a lot of saving. thank you for sharing your wonderful thought on this topic.

  5. You really would need to be very rich to justify a trip like that… plus 8 months at sea is a long time. It does look amazing though and some incredible sights!

  6. I wouldn’t normally want to be on a ship, but that’s a nice big one.
    90,000 bottles of wine on board?
    OK, I’m sold! 🙂 But can Ollie come too?
    (Trouble is, you have to come home afterwards…)
    Best wishes, Pete.

  7. Definitely what I would do with a lotto win!

  8. I think I need the budget version!

  9. Thanks for sharing! We can all dream of getting away like this, right?
