Take a cruise with a difference
 
A world voyage is the ultimate in sea travel, usually transiting the Suez and Panama Canals, facing the oceans in stabilised comfort without having to pack and unpack for three months. On board are glamorous evenings, top entertainment, and socialising while on shore are great opportunities to see diverse cultures. Cabins are still available on selected 2012 voyages with two long sailings and many shorter sectors departing from Australia's shores - but don't forget to book quickly and write home at least once!

Unpack and unwind on a World Cruise World Cruises

World Cruises - the only way to travel!

Most world cruises embark in early January each year, apart from the two Princess departures from Australia. Most circumnavigate the world (some without crossing the Pacific ocean) returning to their departure point. All of the large cruise ships visit Australasia, and offer four to six segments. Passengers may opt for a segment of the journey, lasting a week to two months. Many cruises spend one to three nights in major ports to permit worthwhile on-shore tours.

In 2012 Australians have two cruises departing from Sydney - Sun Princess embarks on her first World Cruise in May, while Dawn Princess sets sail on an inaugural Grand Pacific Cruise in July. From Southampton sail Queen Elizabeth, Queen Mary 2, Oriana, Aurora, and Arcadia. Crystal Serenity sails return ex Los Angeles, and Amsterdam sails return ex Fort Lauderdale. Also sailing out of Fort Lauderdale is Pacific Princess, terminating in Venice. The luxury mid-sized vessels Seabourn Quest and Silver Whisper also sail ex Fort Lauderdale, for Venice and Monte Carlo respectively. Note that the latter two vessels do not visit Australasia.

World Cruising Travel Tips

* Most ships only have one or two power outlets per cabin so remember to pack a power board and an adapter for your electrical items.

* Pick clothes that are light and easy to wash. Make sure that they are comfortable, even after eating onboard for 3 months! The least that you want to happen is to be in a long trip with clothes that do not fit well on you.

* Don't forget to arrange for your household bills & mail to be looked after in your absence.

* Research your ports before you depart, and email yourself the websites you want to reference for things to do. Onboard, you can prepay WIFI and internet packages which will make staying in touch much easier. If you have your own laptop, don't forget you can SKYPE family and friends at home.

* Here is a tip for those who would like to dine with the captain of the ship. The waiters look for couples who are enjoying themselves, do not curse, and do not drink heavily. The waiters will give suggestions to the maitre d' after the first few dinners. If you want to dine with the captain (and meet these characteristics!), make sure you speak with your waiter the first night to let him know your wishes. A $20 bill never hurts to seal the deal.

* Although you may find the shore excursions cheaper through local sources compared to the cruise lines excursions desks, you may end up stranded - or at the least taken advantage of. The cruise lines check out the companies they contract with, and you are much safer using one recommended by the cruise line or a company your cruise consultant is familiar with.

Comparing the Ships

With Cunard, passengers are mostly British and North Americans, with announcements in English, German, French, and occasionally Spanish. Cunard life is suited to individuals or couples of all ages with a nostalgic and historical appreciation, Children's facilities are excellent, and youngsters are supervised by real English nannies. RMS Queen Mary 2 will be refitted next week in time for this cruise, meanwhile MS Queen Elizabeth is Cunard's newest vessel having just celebrated her 1st birthday!
Crystal Cruises is a luxury line with just two medium-sized ships. Readers of Travel + Leisure have voted them World's Best for 14 consecutive years. Crystal has one of the industry's highest guest-to-staff and guest-to-space ratios, accounting for its high rate of return passengers. Longer cruises attract older guests, shorter cruises appeal to more diverse groups. For the well-off, multi-generational family cruises are the norm.
Hallmarks of Holland America Line (HAL) include spacious staterooms and public areas, rich timber furnishings set with museum-quality paintings and antiques, discreet personal service, and artful itineraries that allow for overnights in key cities. From her last Signature of Excellence refit, Amsterdam shows off new stateroom furnishings and public areas. HAL has the right touches for seniors and retirees – smiling staff, flowers, traditions, good cooking demonstrations and alternative dining.
Princess Cruises is a premium British-American cruise line with well-maintained ships offering a well-organised cruise experience, a good range of entertainment and an excellent shore excursion program. Dawn & Sun Princess are large ships with 1,950 passengers. They attract mostly Australians and some New Zealanders, including a high proportion of seniors, especially for longer cruises. Passengers enjoy mingling in a sophisticated setting, with good food and entertainment in an affordable package.
Quite different in size and style, she is one of the smaller eight R-class vessels that now sail with four classy cruise lines. Their popularity rests in their intimate size (around 700 passengers), interior ambiance, and itineraries that include lesser-visited ports. Pacific Princess cruising is about relaxing, perhaps child-free, and discovering one's own delights around smaller ports-of-call. The value for money is excellent for cruising in a vessel that offers some interesting dining choices and modest entertainment.
P&O International fleet of seven vessels includes Arcadia. This is a child-free ship, contemporary and innovative, and focuses on the first-time younger adult crowd as well as attracting seasoned cruisers. The ship is known for carrying ballroom instructors. The fleet flies the British flag, but ships are registered in Bermuda to allow for weddings at sea. The passenger mix varies with the ship and length of cruise: but all are British.
