Instead, MSC's upcoming world cruise will start at $13,200 per person. That's about $114 per person per night.
From early January through April 2025, the MSC Magnifica and its globe-trotting passengers will travel to 50 destinations across 21 countries and five continents.
Throughout this journey, the ship will stop in 22 destinations that have never been on a MSC world cruise itinerary before …
… while making seven overnight stays in destinations like Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and Valparaiso, Chile.
Travelers have the option to begin their journey from one of four ports — Rome or Genoa, Italy, Marseille, France, or Barcelona, Spain — from January 4 through 7 depending on the city.
From there, the Magnifica will sail to Morocco and Cape Verde before crossing the Atlantic Ocean to spend 10 days in South America.
Here, stops include the overnight stay in Rio de Janeiro and a visit to Ushuaia, Argentina, the southernmost town in South America.
Then, travelers will sail to the South Pacific for nearly two weeks of tropical island hopping …
… hitting getaways like Moorea, French Polynesia and the recognizable Easter Island, Chile.
From there, after five days of nonstop sailing, the ship will begin its eight-day New Zealand and 19-day Australia leg.
After stopping in cities like Auckland, New Zealand and Adelaide, Australia, the Magnifica will then sail up to Asia with stops in hotspots like Singapore and Phuket, Thailand …
… before spending seven days crossing the Indian Ocean to see historical destinations like Aqaba, Jordan; Luxor, Egypt, and the Suez Canal.
After three months at sea, the ship will finally sail back to Italy for four additional stops before the 116-night cruise concludes.
By the end of this exhaustive long-haul trip, the vessel and its passengers will have traveled over 30,000 nautical miles.
Crossing three oceans will inevitably lead to a total of 57 days at sea with no ports of call.
Luckily, the 964-foot-long ship has amenities that could entertain travelers of any age, including a bowling alley, mini golf course …
… an outdoor pool to accompany the indoor pool with a retractable roof …
… a 4D theater, and a 1,200-seat theater.
To feed the up to 3,013 guests, the ship has five restaurants as well as 12 bars and lounges.
Let's just hope travelers won't be bored of this food after three months of sailing.
Cruise goers have been flocking to extended sailings over the last few years.
Global monthslong cruises have been selling out or selling fast, according to cruise lines.
And travelers who are committed to life at sea are now quickly buying up homes on an upcoming residential cruise ship that will circumnavigate the globe indefinitely.
