The world’s longest cruise lasts 245 days and explores 113 international ports

Cruises are an exciting way to see the world and enjoy the beauty of the ocean without sacrificing entertainment and even shopping opportunities, but oftentimes they are too short and by the time you really get into the spirit of things, the vacation is already over. But if you’re lucky enough to be a part of this cruise from Viking, there’s no danger of that since this is the longest cruise in the world spanning a whopping 245 days.

The cruise takes place aboard the 930-passenger Viking Sun, setting off on August 31 2019, from London. From there the ship ventures out to explore a cool 113 ports in 59 countries. The route includes ports in Iceland, Greenland and Canada, the east coast of the USA and in Bermuda and the Caribbean before circling South America.

After stops on the west coast of the Americas, the ship will cross the Pacific to French Polynesia, New Zealand and Australia. Next is Asia where guests will explore ports in Indonesia, Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Singapore, Sri Lanka and India. The ship continues on to Oman, Jordan and Egypt before its last few stops in Europe. The journey concludes once again in the UK.

While this cruise may be an enviable way to explore the world, the price is as steep as you would expect with prices starting at $92,990 per person. The price includes the cost of shore excursions in each port and free unlimited Wi-Fi, business class flights to reach the ship, transfers, on-board gratuities, service fees and several other extras.
