Cabezas continued: “Not only are we taking our guests further, but we are also encouraging them to travel deeper with our unique overnight land experiences, designed to bring travellers to the heart of the destination and giving them enough time to appreciate its culture.”
This cruise-of-a-lifetime has a plethora of remarkable highlights from all the world’s wonders.
Cruisers will visit the Great Wall of China during a three-night land excursion where they will become fully immersed in Beijing with a guided tour through the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square.
In Egypt, guests will be driven to Egypt’s largest city, Cairo and head to the Great Pyramids of Giza on a shore excursion. The ancient site is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still in existence - and you'll benefit from a guided tour with an Egyptologist here.
Another shore excursion is to Petra in Jordan where cruisers will walk through the Siq, the narrow, winding gorge that leads to the mysterious desert "Rose Red City”.
On a three-night India land excursion, cruisers will fly to New Delhi for sunrise and sunset visits to the Taj Mahal where guests will explore Agra Fort, the main residence of the emperors of the Mughal Dynasty until 1638.
One of the longer excursions is to see Christ the Redeemer in Brazil where travellers will enjoy a full exploration of Rio de Janeiro.
In this city, they will take a cable car ride to the summit of Sugarloaf Mountain, and a trip to Iguazú Falls.
A classic, yet beautiful sight to see is the Colosseum in Rome, Italy, where guests will be guided by a small group through the 2000-year-old amphitheatre that once seated up to 55,000 spectators!
Other immersive overnight experiences available on the World Voyage include a stay on a Great Barrier Reef Island; a journey through Transylvania, Romania and an exploration of Cappadocia, Turkey where guests will stay in a cave hotel!
Inclusions do not fall short on this World Voyage; this cruise comes with $22,000 (£16,400) in exclusive amenities, including the company’s signature AzAmazing Evenings – designed to connect guests to the local area of the destination.
