Cruise Around the World in 80 Days

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Cruising around the world in 80 days like Phineas Fogg doesn’t have to be a work of fiction. Thanks to the Tailor Made team at CRUISE you can now replicate this journey in grand style, from the comfort of some of the world’s best cruise liners.

In Jules Verne’s classic adventure novel Around the World in 80 Days, our hero Fogg accepts a bet to sail the Victorian world in 80 days or less. While he made his perilous journey by train, steamboat and even wind powered sledge, those choosing to cruise around the world in 80 days with CRUISE will travel in style on P&O, Holland America, Carnival and Cunard ships.

Setting sail on 22 March 2015, this unique cruise offers an exclusive opportunity to genuinely go around the world in 80 days. With prices starting at £8499 for an inside stateroom, rising to £12499 for a balcony, this is a once in a lifetime experience that represents incredible value for money.

The itinerary is a modern day take on Fogg’s journey, where several obstacles threw him off course, and includes stays in New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver, Hong Kong and Venice. Between destinations cruisers can enjoy leisurely stints 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.

Dylan David, Tailor Made Product Manager at CRUISE, added:

“Travelling by Train, Plane, Cruise and Car, this voyage offers a unique 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.”

While Fogg battled Sioux warriors, Indians, hurricane winds and a stowaway detective intent on his arrest, around the world cruisers on this 2015 expedition will find their adventure punctuated with far more pleasant highlights, including a Whistler Mountains and Wildlife Tour in Vancouver, potential whale-spotting at Alaska’s pristinely beautiful Inside Passage and a stop at the stunning volcanic island of Jeju in Korea.

While we’ll admit to a cheat – this 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, he was still able to win his bet and collect his £20,000 prize – the equivalent of a cool £2million today!

Sadly CRUISE can’t reward cruisers with millions, nor the hand of a rescued Princess as in Verne’s famous novel. 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.
