Round the World Cruises - 2018

This website highlights six world cruises sailing in January 2018, all are departing from Southampton and are operated by the UK's three biggest and most experienced cruise lines.

As a company specialising in world and longer cruises, we also have an alternative website that features six luxury cruise lines with an exciting selection of 2018 world cruise itineraries - this website can be found here.

Finally, we have a new website aimed at those seeking a longer cruise but not necessarily a full world cruise. The website features over 250 "Escape the Winter" world cruise segments with departures from January to May 2018. Click here for this one.

Below are useful comparison tables of the six UK originating ships that we feature.

More comprehensive information, including cabin details, deckplans and pricing, dining and entertainment, cruise itineraries and cruise sectors can be found via the SHIPS & ITINERARIES tab in the top menu. Be sure to also check out our comprehensive port information by clicking on the ports tab at the top of the page. It should be noted that this port information is very much scaled down from the individually customised itinerary that we provide to all of our world cruise clients.
