According to this USA Today article, Crystal Cruises has just announced its plans for a 2012 94-day world cruise to include a three-day land voyage in and around Beijing. The ship will fit 1,070 passengers, and will stop at 34 other ports as well, including Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam and Hong Kong, Honolulu, Sydney, Perth, Singapore, Bangkok, Shanghai, Osaka and Yokohama, to name a few. Prices haven’t been released yet, but I’ll be interested to see how much something like this could cost.
For my part, I’m just not sure how I would feel about spending 94 days on a ship (even though a few of those days will be spent on land, as well). Seeing the same 1,000 people over and over and over again for 3 months? I bet that ship would start to feel pretty tiny after a little while….
