Cons: Ray, I'm with Dezertcruzer. 110 days w/o Ray at CruiseMates is TOO long! Surely there are other long, if not world cruise, itineraries that DO appeal to you. Anyplace that you HAVEN'T been that is calling you? J had a good idea too-pick a cruise or a segment of the world cruise, and then spend the extra dough to take some of your family with you! Wouldn't that be special?
Pros: Think of the fellow travelers you would have the pleasure of meeting? On a cruise that long, with that group, you surely could swap travel stories!
