EXPEDITION #1 • Departing Miami, FL


Your clients' once-in-a-lifetime journey begins in Miami with luxurious, complimentary accommodations before embarking on the unforgettable first expedition of the Ultimate World Cruise. They'll go from postcard-perfect Caribbean shores —including the ABC islands —to viewing abundant wildlife like sea lions, penguins and whales roaming glacier-studded Antarctica as you round Cape Horn. Along the way, discover World Wonders in South America, including man-made marvels and extraordinary natural phenomena. Take in the largest Art Deco sculpture in the world, Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro. Behold the largest waterfall system on the planet, Iguazú Falls near Buenos Aires. And explore Machu Picchu, one of the most iconic symbols of Peru’s ancient Inca heritage. Then sail up to the Yucatàn Peninsula to discover hidden coves and dramatic rock formations along Land’s End in Cabo San Lucas before exploring Ensenada.

EXPEDITION #2 • Departing Los Angeles, CA


Venture miles from ordinary in Australia and Asia on this expedition of the Ultimate World Cruise. Sail across the Pacific to explore Hawaii and discover the crystal-clear waters of Mo’orea and Tahiti in unspoiled French Polynesia. Then set out to explore Australia’s Great Barrier Reef — the only living thing on the planet that’s visible from space. Trek from pristine natural beauty in Bali to one of the most iconic man-made World Wonders, the Great Wall of China. Explore South Pacific gems, like Vietnam, Malaysia and Singapore, for picture-perfect panoramas and distinctive local cuisine. From the unparalleled culture and modern architecture of Tokyo to the natural marvels of the seaside town Kagoshima, endless possibilities await you in Japan. And take in one of the most breathtaking sights in the world — The Taj Mahal.

EXPEDITION #3 • Departing Dubai, UAE


This expedition of the Ultimate World Cruise brings history’s greatest mysteries, myths and legends closer than ever. From glamorous Dubai, your clients will be transported to another time as they uncover ancient sites and Old World cultures. Discover World Wonders left behind by the civilizations of legendary pharaohs and emperors, like The Pyramids of Giza in Egypt. And countless renowned ruins across the Mediterranean and Aegean seas —from the Acropolis in Athens to the Temple of Artemis in Ephesus and the Colosseum in Rome. Plus lesser-traveled Greek ports like Olympia, which was once the sanctuary site to honor Zeus and the location of the first Olympic games. Then their journey continues to even more destinations known for their storied history — like the fortified walls of Split, Croatia and explorations in Valencia, Cannes and Provence.

EXPEDITION #4 • Departing Barcelona, ES


The final expedition of the Ultimate World Cruise is an immersive cultural exploration starting in the Med heading north. Discover the heart of Barcelona’s brilliant architecture, including Gaudi’s famed Sagrada Família and the whimsical Park Güell. Savor new flavors across continents — like an indulgent lunch in a Parisian bistro and a dinner of tagine and mint tea in Morocco. And roam fascinating museums, theaters and galleries in Saint Petersburg. Next, your clients will get a glimpse into some of the happiest places on the planet in Scandinavia. Go from wandering countless bridges by bicycle in Copenhagen to taking in larger-than-life fjords in Norway. Then get ready to experience another natural marvel — the other-worldly geothermal seawater at The Blue Lagoon in Iceland before stopping in New York on the way back to Miami.
