A cruise holiday is the number ne choice for many people when it comes to the annual vacation and contrary to popular belief isn’t as expensive as many may think. When it comes to picking a cruise there are literally thousands of options available, from 1 week relatively regional cruises to around the world cruises that can take as long as a year. For this article, I’m going to focus on around the world cruises and provide a little insight into some of the destinations you can visit whilst enjoying the trip of a lifetime.

For those who prefer to stay a little closer to home, there are also a number of shorter cruises that may be equally as rewarding. For example, some cruises from Brisbane, Australia, take in a number of fascinating ports of call including New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and whole host of the Pacific Islands. Although a short cruise is a relaxing break, nothing quite beats an around the world cruise, providing you have the time and sufficient funds. It is highly recommended that you select a long-established cruise line operator with great reputation.
