Ever dream of going on a world cruise? Living on a cruise ship would be my first choice, but until I win the lottery (I keep forgetting to buy a ticket), that probably won’t happen. So perhaps I’ll have to settle for the next best thing. A cruise around the world. An exciting announcement from Princess Cruises says that they will offer two global itineraries in 2009.
The 670-passenger Tahitian Princess and 710-passenger Royal Princess will offer similar 107-day itineraries that set sail from Ft. Lauderdale in January 2009. The Tahitian Princess sailing leaves on January 14, ending in Dover, while Royal Princess sails on January 20 and winds up in Rome. In addition, passengers can choose from two extension options for the Tahitian Princess voyage, giving world travelers the option of finishing this journey of a lifetime in Dover, Rome, Stockholm or New York. Both itineraries feature travel to South America, the South Pacific, Australia, Asia, India and Egypt, with differing European segments. Each voyage will call at a brand new port for Princess — Port Blair in the Andaman Islands, a picturesque stop in the Indian Ocean.
Wow! The itineraries are awesome, and travelers can even add extensions to the original cruise! With the prices starting at around $21,495.00, I’m afraid that I will still need to win the lottery, (unless anyone out there wants to donate to my “cruise fund”) to go on this cruise. I can still dream, can’t I ???
