The Global Trip

The first leg of the journey, the Ultimate Americas Cruise, unfolds like a living tapestry of wonders. From the idyllic ABC Islands in the Caribbean to the majestic landscapes of Antarctica, guests are treated to an awe-inspiring array of scenes. South America beckons with its iconic landmarks, from the colossal Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro to the ethereal Machu Picchu in Peru, a testament to the continent’s rich cultural tapestry.

The voyage then shifts to the Ultimate Asia Pacific Cruise, where the allure of Australia, Asia, and the Pacific Islands takes centre stage. Travellers explore the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef, savour the natural beauty of Bali, and stand in awe before the Great Wall of China. The journey also encompasses the modern marvels of Tokyo and the timeless elegance of India’s Taj Mahal.

As the cruise ventures into the Ultimate Middle East and Med Cruise, passengers are treated to the glitz of Dubai, the ancient marvels of Egypt’s Pyramids of Giza, and the classical wonders of Athens, Ephesus, and Rome. The lesser-explored gems of Olympia, Split, and Cannes add a touch of exclusivity to the itinerary.

The grand finale, the Ultimate Europe and Beyond leg, takes passengers on a cultural extravaganza. From the architectural wonders of Barcelona to the culinary delights of Morocco, the journey weaves through the fjords of Norway, the vibrant streets of Copenhagen, and the otherworldly landscapes of Iceland’s Blue Lagoon. The adventure culminates in the iconic cityscape of New York before a blissful retreat to Royal Caribbean’s private island, Perfect Day at CocoCay before ending back in Miami on the 10th of September, 2024.
