World’s longest cruise costing £67k prepares to depart from Greenwich to visit 59 countries in 245 days

Details have been emerging of the worlds longest continuous cruise will set sail from London  — taking 245 days to complete its voyage.

The Viking Sun’s epic odyssey across most of the seven seas will begin in Greenwich in the capital on August 13 next year.

The huge ship and its 930 passengers will call at 113 ports, 59 countries and every continent except Antarctica and complete its journey in May 2020.

But to book a berth aboard this floating palace you’’ have to have bags of money because it cost you £66K for a basic veranda stateroom, working out at about £273 a day.

The most exclusive cabin on the Viking Sun is the 1,448 sq ft Owner's Suite.

It boasts its own ocean view sauna, costing a mere £194,390 per person — and it's already booked.

All cabins have private balconies.

And each are equipped with king-size beds, heated floors and "generously proportioned" wardrobes.  

Twenty four hour room service is also on hand if you don’t fancy eating in any of the eight restaurants.

There are two pools on board, plus a winter garden and a Nordic spa featuring a "snow grotto", where snowflakes actually fall though chilled air even when you are sailing past the Equator.

Torstein Hagen, the chairman of Viking, said: "Our ultimate world cruise offers the rare opportunity to unpack once and explore dozens of the best destinations on earth — at a value that is unprecedented in the travel industry."
