When most people think of a cruise, they don’t think about touring the world. They think about a quick vacation to one spot where they can relax and enjoy a little bit of time away from the world before they have to get back to the grind. These are great, but there’s a whole other universe of cruises out there. World tour cruises might take up a lot of time (like, seriously, a lot), but that allows travelers to go places they would otherwise never get to see, all in one trip. If you can find a way to spare the time in 2022, these two world cruises from Princess should definitely be on your radar.
In 2022, Princess will be bringing back their World Cruise, a tradition that they’ve had for a while now. There will be two different cruises, though both depart from Los Angeles. There are a few key differences between the two, namely ports, length of the trip and final port (one returns to Los Angeles and the other returns to Ft. Lauderdale.). Both leave on January 19, 2022, and will take more than three months to complete their journey. Let’s get the details on both.
Los Angeles to Ft. Lauderdale
The non-roundtrip option is the shorter and less expensive of the two. It lasts 97 days and starts at $15,489. Despite it not taking up quite as much time as the other cruise (really, when they get to around 100 days, we’re just splitting hairs), it still has a nearly endless list of amazing ports that it will be stopping at. There are 42 in total. It starts by heading to Hawaii and then American Samoa. Following this, you’ll head to New Zealand, take a day to cruise through Fiordland National Park, visit Australia, Indonesia, Oman, Egypt, Greece and more. This is truly a world cruise.
Roundtrip Los Angeles
The longer option of these two 2022 world tours is the Roundtrip Los Angeles cruise. It lasts 111 days and visits 48 ports compared to the shorter itinerary’s 42. It’s a bit pricier, starting at $17,669. Ultimately, the list of ports and the general travel route is pretty similar, but you’ll have more time to explore the unique areas you’re visiting. One exciting difference between the two is the fact that this cruise offers you one more day of scenic cruising (three compared to two). That means you’ll have three days without any stops where you can just relax on the ship and watch beautiful sights go by.
If you’re lucky enough to have more than three months of free time in 2022, you can check the longer itinerary out here and the shorter itinerary here. Oh, and don’t forget to buy us a ticket while you’re at it. We’ll pay you back, we promise!
