And I haven’t even done the 5th yet.  The 5th is Holland America’s very non-standard route with 9 ports in Africa but no Hong Kong, Singapore, India, Thailand…I think that will be a lot of fun for a change but I’ll be happy to be on the

Queen Mary 2.

Full World Voyage, 123 Nights

Jan 3, 2024 – May 5, 2024
Departs : New York, NY, USA
Arrives : New York, NY, USA

A roundtrip Transatlantic Crossing and overnight calls in Cape Town, Sydney, Melbourne, Hong Kong, and Singapore are standout moments to enjoy on this 123-night World Voyage departing from New York.”

Ya think?    See the whole itinerary at 123 nights – Full World Voyage – January 2024 – Cunard

It goes around the world ever eastbound, while most of the others go west (young ships). 

OK – If you aren’t up for four months, how about segments? Like:

New York to Cape Town: 29 nights – New York to Cape Town – January 2024 – Cunard  Jan 3 to Feb 1

Cape Town to Freemantle, Sydney or Hong Kong Pick one from this link.  Be sure it reads Queen Mary 2 if you want me on it:  Search and book Cunard cruises 2022, 2023 & 2024 – Cunard

Any of those places on around the world.  Let’s look at Hong Kong.  You can go to Singapore but that’s too short to be worth it.  How about Hong Kong to Dubai? 24 nights – Hong Kong to Dubai – March 2024 – Cunard  or the rest of the way home.

If you have got into this, you’ll be able to navigate the Cunard web site now.  Don’t laugh too hard at which pictures they pair with which ports. Everybody has a lot of new staff these days.  Do appreciate the pretty good prices, but don’t think of booking an inside cabin.  You’d likely hate it. 

I just hope this gets you thinking into the future and that you’ll give me a call to talk about it.  You know where I am.  And you know you have to buy it from me so you can be in my group and enjoy all the added value I hope I bring.

Last but not least, Robbie will be looking for staff in the best located, most tastefully decorated, 2-bedroom apartment in downtown Montreal.  Put “house tour” in the search bar of this blog to see it.  That’s for two world cruises, January 2 to May 12, 2023 and January 2 to May 4, 2024.  Winter is avoided, when it’s nasty, by means of location on the underground city and Metro. 

TTFN, and Purrs,
