If you happen to find yourself with tens of thousands of extra dollars, plus over a hundred vacation days to spare, then we have some great news for you. Regent Seven Seas recently announced an epic, six-continent, 30-country, 117-night sailing that will depart on January 5, 2021 from Miami and hit 56 UNESCO World Heritage sites.

The Seven Seas Mariner is slated to follow a 38,551-mile course, hitting iconic and lesser-known spots, including the Great Barrier Reef, Petra in Jordan, Machu Picchu, and the Nazca Lines. The itinerary also features stops in the Mediterranean, Bora Bora, Tahiti, and New Zealand. In Asia, passengers will have the opportunity to explore everything from the Singapore Botanic Gardens to the Taj Mahal to Mumbai’s historic Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus rail station. Oman’s Bahla Fort, the Old City of Acre in Israel, and Jordan’s Wadi Rum Protected Area (known for its surreal desert landscapes and petroglyphs) are other incredible highlights.

Of course, this jaw-dropping journey unsurprisingly comes with an equally jaw-dropping price tag. Fares start at $61,999, and include 324 free shore excursions in 61 ports, free business-class airfare to and from the ship, free booze, free unlimited Wi-Fi, and free laundry services, to name a few. And that’s to say nothing about the onboard perks. The 350-suite ship, which was recently refurbished, features a pool, spa, multiple restaurants and bars, and a library to help keep you occupied on sea days, too.
