Option to depart from Liverpool ahead of Brand new ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ cruise launching

‘Around the World in 80 Days’ will give travellers looking for their next adventure the chance to follow in the footsteps of explorer Phileas Fogg in a brand new cruise– being released by Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines tomorrow (Friday, 5th March). 

The cruise, which includes the option to depart from Liverpool ahead of its main departure from Southampton in February 2023, is timed to take advantage of a number of exceptional experiences, with a visit into Safaga coinciding with the 100-year anniversary of the discovery of Tutankhamen and calls into Japan specially-timed to capture the beautiful cherry blossom in bloom.

The 80-day adventure will take place in the 150th anniversary year of the novel and will call into many of the ports visited by Fogg, including Mumbai, Hong Kong, Shanghai and San Francisco.

Guests will also enjoy up to £500 per person to spend on board. 

Martin Lister, Head of Destination Experience and Itinerary Planning at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: 

“This is a truly exceptional cruise. Not only will guests have the chance to follow the route of famous fictional explorer Phileas Fogg, but there will also be many opportunities for guests to create tales of their own adventures. 

“We’re calling into Japan in time to see the seasonal cherry blossom in bloom, with chances to learn more about its connection with rice growing, and to take part in a local tea ceremony.

“In India, guests can immerse themselves in the Hindu culture and traditions, or become a Dabbawala for a day in the bustling city of Mumbai and join in their seamless delivery operation. 

“A visit to the remote Pacific islands of Hawaii will offer the chance to witness the still active Kilauea volcano. 

“Plus, there will also be chances to enjoy explorations of many towns, cities and islands in-between, as well as transits of both the Panama and Suez Canals. It really is set to be a trip of a lifetime, and we can’t wait to take our guests on this journey with us in 2023.” 

The cruise has already proven extremely popular, with an early booking period of Fred. Olsen’s Oceans members bringing a record-breaking sales day for the cruise line.
