Would you like to go on a luxury cruise? The cruise of a lifetime set sail on Sunday. It could be the longest cruise ever. It is called the Ultimate World Cruise. The 245-day trip will visit 51 countries on six continents. The cruise ship will stop at 111 ports. The chairman of the cruise company said: "For more than 20 years we have been committed to connecting travelers to...experiences that allow them to explore the world in comfort. Our...cruise is the most extensive [trip] available in the industry....I am pleased to offer such a unique experience for our guests."

The cruise isn't cheap. The 930 passengers paid a minimum of $81,000 each, but even at this price, all tickets were sold. Guests will live in luxury on the ship. The ship has eight restaurants that offer a different menu for every day of the cruise. Guest chefs will create special menus to match the destination. A spokesman said: "There is more food than you can ever imagine. But we also have a wellness theme throughout the cruise, so you can look after your nutrition." The ship also has two swimming pools, a spa, and a snow grotto where snowflakes fall from the ceiling.
