Intrepid explorers can go on the adventure of a lifetime, journeying around the world in 119 days – all on one cruise holiday.
MSC Cruises has unveiled its epic World Cruise for 2021, with stops across the Caribbean, South America, the USA, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, China, Europe… the list goes on and on!
In fact, it covers 53 destinations across 33 countries.
The luxury cruise line hosts a round-the-world trip each year, but for 2021 it’s offering "a significant focus on unique Asian destinations" and it’s basically a giant bucket list of dream holiday destinations.
Think the likes of Kyoto and Tokyo in Japan – coinciding with the cherry blossom season – Shanghai in China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Singapore and Malaysia.
The ship itself is pretty swanky too – think the likes of a luxury spa, basketball and tennis courts, three swimming pools, a cinema, a ‘zen garden’ and fine dining experiences.
Unfortunately, you’re going to need a pretty hefty holiday budget. The cheapest cabins start at £11,599pp, based on two people sharing an inside cabin.
Want a balcony with a view? You’re going to have to fork out £17,049pp. As for the luxury suites, you’re looking at a dent of £21,849pp in your bank account.
It’s by no means a budget-friendly holiday, but that does work out at approximately £97pp per day for the cheapest cabin, so it’s quite a lot of bang for your buck if you do happen to have the cash.
The price also includes 15 included shore excursions and a drinks package with alcoholic drinks at mealtimes.
