Imagine walking over a tree lined canopy in the Amazon rain forest, sailing on a junk in Vietnam, seeing the wildlife on safari, and an Ostrich Ranch near Cape Town, visiting the Great Wall of China, taking a thrilling ride through the Dubai desert safari in a 4x4 or climbing the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge all on one holiday.
All of these once in a lifetime experiences can become a reality during the ultimate holiday - a world cruise.

P&O Cruises managing director, Carol Marlow said: “A world cruise is often considered a once in a lifetime experience but each exotic itinerary offers an extraordinary choice of shore adventures, each a once in a lifetime opportunity in its own right.
“The 2011/12 World Cruise programme encompasses 177 ports in 55 countries so we have been searching for the best sights and experiences that these ports have to offer to ensure that passengers have a memorable and exciting range of scenic, cultural, active and city tour shore excursions to choose from. These will include landmark sights such as the Golden Gate Bridge and Panama Canal; overnight stays in ports such as Manaus, Cape Town, Istanbul and New Orleans; cultural experiences and, of course, city tours, often with exclusive entry into museums and art galleries.
