Cunard has released its 2013 sailing schedules, including the desirable around-the-world cruises which are stages of approximately 25 days. Embarkation ports include Southampton, New York, Los Angeles, Fort Lauderdale, Hamburg, Venice, Rome, Athens, Greenock, Auckland . . .
For shorter cruises, or to test the waters to determine if you even want to live aboard while seeing the world, consider shorter legs on Last Minute Cruises which includes:
- 1-night Pacific Coast Cruise from Seattle on Princess Cruises or Holland America.
- A 2-night repositioning cruise from Amsterdam to Southampton, England, which includes wine tasting on board.
- Disney Cruise Line’s “Cruise to Nowhere” from New York to New York.
- Or if you want to test Cunard before signing on for a longer cruise, consider their 2-night cruise from Hamburg, Germany to Southampton, England (or the reverse voyage). These are scheduled for August with Balcony rooms starting at $1005 and Suites at $1245.
