For the First Time, You Can Cruise Around the World and Stop at All Seven Continents, but It Wont Be Cheap

Want to see the world from the comfort of an elite cruise ship designed for the 1 percent? A luxury cruise line wants to become the first in the world to visit all seven continents. The Silver Whisper plans to stop in 32 countries over a 140-day voyage, USA Today reported Thursday.

The ship from Silversea Cruises will take roughly 382 passengers around the world starting on January 6, 2020. It will depart from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, visit 62 ports and finish up on May 25, 2020 in Amsterdam.

"Legends of Cruising is the first world cruise to take in all 7 continents and to visit Antarctica. Join us for a 140-day journey that will visit 32 countries and 62 ports, captivating your senses and your imagination. Travel deeper and witness the world's beauty," the cruise line states on its website.

The ship will travel near Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, Antarctica, Chile, Easter Island, Pitcain Island and French Polynesia. Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, Indonesia, Singapore Oman, Jordan and Egypt made the port list. In Europe, the ship will also stop in Italy, Spain the United Kingdom and Norway, among other countries.

All that travel means lots of time at sea, but there is plenty to do on board while traveling between the continents. The ship features two libraries, a casino, pool, spa and gym, among other attractions.

Fares start at $62,000 per person and include a pre-cruise hotel stay in Florida. Each cabin will be given $4,000 on-board spending credit.

"We have sought feedback from our most loyal World Cruisers in order to create the only seven-continent World Cruise available," Barbara Muckermann, the company's chief marketing officer, told Travel + Leisure in a statement. "Silversea invites the curious, the adventurous, and the pioneers of travel to experience the earth's most authentic beauty, which remains out of reach for most."

The Silver Whisper is one of the world's most luxurious cruise ships, with its two-bedroom Owner's Suite renting out for $201,250 per person per voyage in the sparsely populated ship.

In contrast, Cunard Line, which in 1923 became the first cruise company to offer a world cruise, charges $194,000 to stay in its 1,375-square-foot Grand Suite, but its Queen Elizabeth can carry up to 2,068 passengers, making for a slightly less exclusive experience.
