World’s longest cruise around the globe stops in 65 countries over 9 months

The world's longest cruise around the world has just been announced by Royal Caribbean.

Over a 9-month period, the huge ship will sail around the globe taking in all seven continents and stopping in 65 countries.

While it might sound tempting to hit all those countries at once, sadly it won't come cheap.

According to CNN Travel, the trip will set you back between £48,000-£81,000 (around $66,000 and $112,000) per person.

But you will get your money's worth since you'll be put in a five-star hotel ahead of the sailing.

Royal Caribbean International's president and CEO Michael Bayley said: "This is the world cruise of world cruises."

The president added: "Now more than ever, people have resolved to travel the world and make up for lost time.

"Royal Caribbean is making that a reality with the ultimate vacation that welcomes those seeking adventure and exploration to taste, dance and dream with us around the world.

"To travellers asking themselves where they should go next, we say everywhere."

If you go ahead with the trip, you will be travelling on the 294-metre-long Serenade of the Seas which boasts 13 decks and rooms for 2,476 guests.

On board there's an arcade, a rock-climbing wall, a theatre and even a mini-golf course.

The itinerary begins with you setting sail from Miami before heading off to the Caribbean where you'll stop in Central and South America.
