Smile World Cruise?

Dear Readers

Im thinking of doing the world cruise in 2013 with my husband, were both in our 50+bracket! Favourt cruise line for me at the moment is Oceania Cruise Line, but unfourtunatly they dont do a world cruise, 71 days is thier biggest..

We were very fond of the QE2 back in the days when she was owned by cunard! but havent sailed on any since owned by carnival..

We want to do the luxury(6 star)ships, but dont really no were to start
has anyone done the world cruise on any? iv read on another forum were regent only scored 7.4 this seems poor ratings for a 6 star line.. Crystal & Seabourns ratings were 8.8..

Who would you say were the best for the money?

Regards Poppy

Cunard do full World cruises, how about the iconic QM2?

I have no plans to do a world cruise, but I wanted to welcome you to Cruisemates. I look forward to hearing what others have to say about a world cruise. It sounds exciting.

Again... Welcome

I should think that the QM2 would be something into which you might look for one simple reason. It is the last ship that will ever be built along the lines of the iconic Atlantic liner, meaning it has a re-enforced bow, something not necessarily needed but nevertheless an unseen feature providing a higher degree of security should the seas in some areas prove to be far more heavy than originally anticipated.

While obviously not on a par with the "Luxury lines" you have mentioned, were you to seek an upscale cabin (such as a suite) you may retain some of the amenities you seek. I understand that Oceana has the best food (even better by some reports than Seabourne, et. al.) but you would be afforded access to a restaurant(s) aboard QM2 denied to most of the passengers.

Just a thought and I most sincerely welcome you to Cruisemates and hope that you both find and enjoy your "dream cruise."
