My princess tells me she wants to go on holiday. Around the world? Again?
It’s the kind of trip that can sustain you a lifetime, sailing around the world.
And for a seven-year-old returning from Australia to England after her father’s two-year working stint it was just that.
It wasn’t the fancy cruise liner we’re flagging here today that she was on but a working ship.
And they worked her too, putting her through her schooling on the seven-week trip.
But it wasn’t all work and no play as she partied with the adults when they crossed the Equator and savoured crossing the Panama Canal.
There was a stop-off too in exotic Tahiti and time in Lisbon.
Now imagine all of that at an age when you can drink booze, and in exotic bars and restaurants too in front of the best entertainment.
Well imagine no more. Princess Cruises will give you all this and more on their 2023 Round the World Cruise.
As with everything cruise it’s all about the big numbers.
They have an 111-day roundtrip voyage on Island Princess from Fort Lauderdale, departing from January 5, 2023 and Los Angeles from January 19, 2023.
Or a 97-day cruise from LA to Fort Lauderdale, setting sail on January 19, 2023.
You’ll take in 50 destinations across 31 countries and six continents.
Site for sore eyes
There will be 21 UNESCO sites on the itinerary among them Petra, Jordan.
And why not get there by climbing aboard the cruise ship of the desert.
Or climb Mt Etna in Sicily (I have a rock on my desk), and take in the charms of Ephesus in Turkey.
The cruise will cross the Equator twice and, of course, I’ll have an expert by my side.
While they’re also offering an overnight stay in Dubai and Venice.
And book early
And ten ‘More Ashore’ late-night calls, with extended hours in port so guests can have more time ashore.
The offer gets better too with the lure of a sale with rates starting at €13,479pp for 97 nights and €15,547pp for 111 nights.
And if you book by August 31 you’ll get a raft of extras.
