Last week Georgina Cruz wrote about her experiences on multiple world cruises – with a few more to come. This week she highlights who’s offering world cruises in 2021.
Below are 2021 world cruises departing from U.S. ports announced by major cruise lines and listed alphabetically. Prices listed are starting fares per person, double, for the entire voyage (taxes, fees and port expenses are extra) as they appeared on cruise lines’ websites at time of writing of this article (and are subject to change). Some cruises are “all inclusive” (meaning that gratuities, alcoholic beverages, bottled water and in some cases tours and special events onboard may be included). Always ask what is included and what special offers and perks may be available for the voyage and accommodations you want. Offers and perks for full world cruise guests may include airfare, a hotel night pre-cruise, transfers, shipboard credit, Internet and more. Perks for early booking and early payment including luggage shipment and pre-paid gratuities may be available on some lines. Additional perks for booking upper-category accommodations may be featured on some lines. Segments are typically offered. For additional information, contact a travel agent specializing in cruises and visit each cruise line’s website.
