Have you every wanted to conquer your bucket list all in one go? Maybe you’re even willing to take about a third of a year off to get it done? If that sounds like you, Regent Seven Seas Cruises is planning a 117-day excursion that might be right up your
alley canal. It’s a subtle 33,500-nautical mile trek.
The ship, called the Seven Seas Mariner, is set to sail in January of 2021. It’ll take only 700 passengers across the globe, covering the bases of six continents, 30 countries and exactly 56 highly attributed UNESCO World Heritage sites (think: The Great Barrier Reef, Machu Picchu and Easter Island).
Jason Montague, the cruise line’s president and CEO, went in depth about some of the many destinations. “On this 2021 voyage, guests can visit 56 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in ports like Colombo, Sri Lanka, Jerusalem, Israel and Limassol, Cyprus, and each night return to their spacious and luxurious suite and enjoy personalized service on board. What’s more, we feature 11 overnight stays in some of the world’s premier destinations so world cruisers feel fully immersed in these ports of call,” he explained.
Starting in Miami, the ship will cruise in the Atlantic, through the Panama Canal and hug the west coast of South America. From there, it’s set to sail west along the Pacific Ocean, border Australia and continue up to make its way along the coasts of Asia and Europe.
It seems that every single unique day of the cruise has been intentionally catered to entertain guests and allow them to explore as much as possible. “We thoughtfully design world cruise itineraries to bring guests to sites they desire to explore, ranging from iconic destinations to the hidden gems that can only be accommodated on a cruise of this length,” Montague said.
Fares for the extended excursion begin at around $62,000. Although steep, the price is highly inclusive. It covers First Class airfare to Miami (where the ship sails from) with transfers between the airport and ship, a pre-cruise gala with a one-night stay in Miami, unlimited beverages, gratuities and more.
Surprisingly, this ship that essentially requires you to drop everything for almost four months is not even close to the longest continuous cruise in the world. The title is held by Viking Cruises’ ship, the Viking Sun, which sails for a whopping eight consecutive months.
