8 THE JOURNEY OF A LIFETIME As destination specialists, Oceania Cruises is committed to indulging the dreams of even the most seasoned and adventurous world travellers. Our guests’ penchant for travel is absolutely unfettered, and thus our collection of itineraries must include this true journey of a lifetime, a fantasy voyage designed to sail around the world. Many cruise lines offer typical “world cruises” that race across the seas in about 100 days, passing by many appealing ports along the way. But we believe that if you’re going to sail around the world, do it like a true navigator, a true explorer. It’s not a race; it’s a journey!

Departing Miami on 10th January 2015, the unprecedented Around the World in 180 Days cruise literally circumnavigates the globe, calling on South America, Africa, Asia, Australia
