Hey, how about this cruise: 108 days, visiting 42 ports in 26 countries on five continents.
The price tag? $53,745 for a 295-square foot Category A suite to $254,745 for a Grand Suite measuring 1,135 square feet, with three private verandas (price is per person on double occupancy cabin)

Here is all the information on this ultimate cruise

Look at it this way: Crystal's current world cruise costs $250,000 per person for their Crystal Penthouse. I cannot imagine a half a million for a couple. That would buy two houses for most people. For the lowest category cabin, without balcony, the cost is nearly $50K.

But, you cannot beat the food and service on Seabourn. I've done 5 cruises on Seabourn ships and it's by far the best. And, Seabourn cruises are all inclusive, so no bar bills. And, they include many shore excursions, so that saves a lot of money.

Isn't $500 or more per day about the going rate for luxuary lines? If I find one for $350 or so on Silversea, I get excited. I just wish I could take the time to go on a world cruise, or you are right, my daughter might want the money to pay off her mortgage.

That would be a VERY NICE prison.

I used to spend lots of time on a tugboat. It can get a little close from time to time, especially in the winter when you can't spend your free time on deck without FREEZING.

My wife and I have been fortunate to have taken World Cruises in 2007 and 2008. Each one was approximately 108 days in length. It was a wonderful opportunity for us. Many years ago when someone mentioned the idea of a world cruise we too wondered how one could stay on a ship for so long. So, prior to this we went on a ship for about 30 days and enjoyed it so much that we made the decision to take a world cruise. Words cannot truly describe what a wonderful experience this was. Rather than thinking of it as a cruise, it was an adventure.

Hi Keith -

We agree with you ... 108 sounds wonderful. As you can see from our signature, we are working our way up to a world cruise.

28 days around So. America was fantastic. Now, we are excited about our 35-day cruise this summer.

And, we are looking into 50 and 60 day cruises for next year! Within a few years we will be ready for that 108-day voyage!

Isn't retirement great?? We love it ... and cruising makes it so much better!
