Inside the £240,000 ultra-luxe cruise package that will take guests from Tokyo to Dubrovnik in 2025

It’s a holiday lasting 105 days, an ocean odyssey spanning 60 destinations over three continents (and 11 countries), sailing on seven ships – and it’s been billed as “the ultimate luxury cruise” by the travel agency behind the package.

The mammoth itinerary from Mundy Cruising, specialists in ocean-going holidays, comes in at a hefty £239,999.

For that fare, passengers are promised the height of nautical luxury on some of the finest cruise ship cabins on the market, remarkable hotel rooms while staying on land, journeys along magnificent railways and business-class tickets when flying.

Ports of call will allow travellers to experience the hustle and bustle of New York City, sit back on a romantic train journey aboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, soak up the sun while circling Adriatic islands and take in the views as the Rocky Mountaineer chugs through the US.

Speaking about why the itinerary was created, Edwina Lonsdale, managing director of Mundy Cruising, said: “Why not, we thought, create a cruise which allows people to visit some on the best places on the planet, on some of the very best ships, and in the absolutely very best suites available on those ships?”

Alex Loizou,director of sales, marketing and operations, says that Mundy created the cruise “as an example of the many bespoke travel experiences we take pleasure in curating”.

So just how ambitious is Mundy’s project, and what will holidaymakers find on the voyage?
