For travelers who can’t decide on just one destination, Cunard Cruise Line is launching an epic cruise around the world that stops in 25 countries over 120-days.
Kicking off Jan. 7, 2017, the journey aboard the 2,068-passenger Queen Elizabeth will start in Southampton, England and conclude at the same port on May 8, reports USA Today.
The ship will traverse a westerly route around the world, starting with a trans-Atlantic trip to New York, down to Fort Lauderdale, then through the Panama Canal to the Pacific Ocean. Along the way, travelers will dock at 39 ports in several countries including the shores of Mexico, Hawaii, Samoa, Tonga, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, China, Vietnam, Singapore and Malaysia, as well as Sri Lanka, and the Seychelles.
The final leg of the trip will take cruisers through several African ports including South Africa, Namibia, Cape Verde, and more before returning to England.
The voyage will also include a first for the Cunard fleet—a visit to Alotau, Papua New Guinea.
Booking for the adventurous cruise opens Sept. 10 with fares for the full 120-days starting at $19,999 per person. Passengers boarding in New York will receive a slight discount at $18,499 per person.
