How Long is a World Cruise?

Updated: Oct 16, 2023


I've been cruising for years and find it a wonderful way to visit the world. For those of us who would like to sail for longer periods of time and visit multiple continents in one voyage, the cruise lines have the perfect answer - a world cruise!


How long is a world cruise? World cruises vary in length with itineraries lasting 90 – 245 days. Sign me up! I’m ready to go today. I guess you would say that I am “addicted” to cruising.

In the past few years, many travelers determined it was a great way to “winterbird,” rather than spending their time in Florida and I fully agree. The cruise line offers a full package that often beats the cost of a winter condo home. Perhaps you've never considered a world cruise as an option, but just think about this:

➙ All food and beverages are included.

➙ Entertainment is included.

➙ The cruise director offers special activities for world cruisers to mix and mingle and make long-lasting friends.

➙ Luxury cruise lines often include shore excursions in each port.

➙ The ships sail with a medical staff.

➙ Wi-fi is included in most packages to help cruisers stay in touch with those back at home.

Why are some world cruise voyages longer than others? Quite simply, sailing routes. Not all itineraries are created equal. Some sail through the Suez Canal while others sail the southern route and skirt the coast of Africa. It's all about the route and the focus of the itinerary. When choosing a world cruise, always look at the ports of call to ensure you have an interest in visiting those particular sites.

Imagine cruising to the world’s top destinations to experience the culture and activities each place offers. The excitement of learning more about local life, cuisine, and festivals without having to worry about the details of transportation, meals and lodging.


While on the world cruise voyage, you’ll have the opportunity to visit some of the world’s most notable cities and UNESCO World Heritage sites, which are on many travelers’ bucket lists. Another great feature of world cruises? Overnight stays! Yes, you’ll be able to participate in the night life activities in some well-known cities around the world.
