If traveling the world is on your to-do list — and you don't get seasick easily — there's an Azamara cruise ship that will give you the chance to add 37 push pins to your bucket-list map. Set to depart in 2025, the cruise sets sail from San Diego and ends in Southhampton, England, stopping in 37 countries over the span of 155 nights — 46 of which include late-night and overnight stops to allow passengers more time to enjoy prime destinations, including Hawaii, New Zealand, Tahiti, Thailand, Greece, Italy, and more.

The lengthy adventure isn't the cruise line's first foray into a worldwide extravaganza, but this latest cruise includes new destinations. “With 60% of ports on this sailing being different from those on our 2024 world voyage, this itinerary was carefully curated to give even the most well-traveled guests a new perspective on the world,” President Carol Cabezas said in a news release. What really sets the quest apart from other cruises, though, is the added time passengers can enjoy in a particular destination, whereas many other cruise excursions often feel like a blip compared to the time you spend sailing.

The 2025 cruise marks the second voyage of the Azamara Onward, which can hold up to 684 guests. Travelers will be provided 13 complimentary events, including visiting the largest Buddhist temple in the world and dancing the night away at the kickoff gala event in San Diego. Passengers also receive $4,000 in onboard credit, $3,000 toward shore excursions, weekly laundry service, roundtrip business class airfare, and a premium two-person beverage package. Wondering what an epic voyage like this costs? Rates start at a modest $40,000 a person but go as high as $157,000. If you have 155 days and some life savings to spare, booking is available now.
