World Cruise 2016
Discover lands of wonder or shrouded in mystery on this global circumnavigation with a luxury cruise. Places like Easter Island with its enigmatic Moai, haunting Petra, and isolated Pitcairn Island, home of the Bounty mutineers.
With numerous late-night and overnight calls, and even more connections to re-join the ship, you’ll have ample time to explore a breathtaking succession of highlights including Ayer’s Rock, Angkor Wat, the bejewelled temples of Burma and biblical treasures of the Holy Land on this world cruise.
