Plan Ahead -
The best cabins and suites go fast – while there may still be some availability for next years world cruises, we recommend booking about 2 years in advance to make sure you get everything you want out of your world cruise.
What you didn't know you needed to know -
Knowing which ports you'll only be able to pay with cash and which ones don't speak your native language is helpful. Not only at knowing how to navigate when you get off the boat to explore but also so you can fully immerse yourself in the culture and experience.

Pack the Essentials - Having enough vitamins, beauty products, and other toiletries to last the duration of the cruise is good idea but also keeping in mind there are onboard shops (and ports of call) where you can purchase similar items. You may also want to consider packing extra prescriptions in case of loss. Also, pack to wear layers. This trip is all about comfort but be realistic, as you'll need a variety of climate focused clothing and sensible walking shoes. Pro Tip: You don't need as many clothes as you think.
