There is also a three-night stop in Mumbai, where guests can take their time exploring the Hanging Gardens and distinct markets. Parliament, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and St. Paul’s Cathedral are all popular during the overnight stay in London. Culture lovers will adore a stop in Istanbul, where they can visit the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia. And an overnight stop in Singapore provides the perfect opportunity for guests to experience a nighttime safari.
Other highlights of the world cruise include going through the Panama Canal, seeing bottlenose dolphins at Milford Sound, and watching penguins on Phillip Island in Australia. You will also cross the International Date Line and sail through historic bodies of water including the Coral Sea, Tasman Sea, and Timor Sea.
