Cruising around the world in 80 days like Phileas Fogg is a reality with www.CRUISE.co.uk.
While Fogg in Jules Verne’s classic adventure novel Around the World in 80 Days made his perilous journey by train, steamboat and a wind powered sledge, those choosing to cruise around the world with www.CRUISE.co.uk will travel in style on P&O, Holland America, Carnival and Cunard ships.
Descending 22 March 2015, this unique cruise experience offers value-for-money prices beginning at £8499 for an inside stateroom and rising to £12499 for a balcony.
The itinerary modernises Fogg’s journey and includes stays in New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver, Hong Kong and Venice.
Guests enjoy luxury travel and accommodation on four exceptional cruise ships including 17 nights cruising Europe on the glamorous P&O Oceana, 31 nights taking in the Eastern delights of Hong Kong, China, Korea and Japan on Holland America’s elegant Volendam liner, 8 nights on activity-packed Carnival Legend taking in the spectacular glaciers of Alaska and 7 nights on Cunard’s opulent Queen Mary 2 making the transatlantic crossing from New York back to Southampton.
“Travelling by Train, Plane, Cruise and Car, this voyage offers a chance to visit the four corners of the world in a very different way. With hotel stays in New York, Hong Kong, Venice & more.
Scenic trains coupled with four of the biggest cruise lines out there, this is a brilliant alternative to a traditional World cruise. I’m sure Phileas Fogg would be proud,” says Dylan David, Tailor Made Product Manager at www.CRUISE.co.uk.
The 2015 expedition involves a Whistler Mountains and Wildlife Tour in Vancouver, whale-spotting at Alaska’s beautiful Inside Passage and a stop at the volcanic island of Jeju in Korea.
While www.CRUISE.co.uk admits to a cheat – the cruise actually takes 81 days to complete – by happy coincidence Phileas Fogg actually went over his deadline by a day too.
Thanks to the time difference however, Fogg was still able to win his bet and collect his £20,000 prize – the equivalent of £2million today.
While www.CRUISE.co.uk can’t reward cruisers with millions, the prize for completing this Around the World in 80 Days cruise is the chance to write your own epic story and the lasting memory of the adventure of a lifetime.
