Autumn now brings the Blues? Well, there's at least one way to get rid of it — to go on a round-the-world cruise. Especially since many of these trips begin just in September-November.
First you need to take care about three free months — that's how long the cruise round the world. As a rule, cruises of such duration begin in one of the ports of the USA or Canada, but there are also shorter programs, with the start of European ports (for example, from Italy and Greece). In any case, you will need to issue several visas at once. Troubles with documents are fully compensated by impressions: depending on the route you will visit two or even more continents, see exotic Islands and the boundless ocean in all its greatness, cross the line of change of dates or the equator.
The price of the cruise usually includes accommodation and meals on Board, as well as entertainment, fitness, swimming pools and other attributes of a luxurious holiday. The cost of round-the-world tours for 80-90 days starts from 800 thousand rubles, and this does not include mandatory expenses such as service fees, excursions, purchases on Board and air travel to the port of destination! If the travel budget is confusing, you can book only part of the route.
Going around the world, do not forget about the dress code-many ocean liners decided to come for dinner in evening clothes. Do not be amiss to take with you and your favorite Board games, as well as a tablet with movies and TV shows (they can be downloaded in advance offline, this option offers, for example, online cinema ivi) to pass the time in the days of sea crossings. Here are just five films that can be seen in such a journey.
