2. Hop on an Around-The-World Cruise

For your first post-pandemic vacation, why not go all out and book an around-the-world cruise?
Some of the top cruises will take you all around the planet to see some of the most amazing sites, from natural wonders and iconic attractions to amazing bustling cities and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities!

A cruise is one of the best and most worry-free ways to experience an around-the-world adventure. It is also the most convenient way, since travelers only have to unpack once! Cruisers will have peace of mind without having to pack up every few days and rush to the next destination.

For luxurious cruise options, Silversea is a great option.

Silversea World Cruise 2022

This is an extraordinary North-South World Cruise spanning parallels 65°S to 65°N, from Antarctica all the way up to Iceland.

This singular itinerary weaves together a story of magnificently contrasting destinations, from Turkey to South Africa, from South Georgia Island to Seychelles all on the luxurious Silver Whisper.

The price includes restaurants, butler service, unlimited shore excursions, all liquor and beverages, pre-paid gratuities, Wi-Fi, and first-class air travel.

Tips for booking an around-the-world cruise:

  • If you don’t have tons of time, choose to book a segment instead, ranging from two weeks to a month or more. This is a great way to sample the world cruise experience.
  • Book ahead! Around-the-world cruises tend to sell out, so it is a good idea to book a year or two in advance.
