Have you ever wanted to go on a luxury cruise? The cruise of a lifetime set sail from London on Sunday. It could set the Guinness World Record for the longest cruise ever. It is called the Ultimate World Cruise. The 245-day voyage will visit 51 countries on six continents. The cruise ship Viking Sun will dock at 111 ports as it sails all the way around the world. The chairman of Viking 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 Ultimate World Cruise is the most extensive itinerary available in the industry....I am pleased to offer such a unique experience for our guests."

The luxury cruise isn't cheap. The 930 passengers have paid a minimum of $81,000 each to sail around the world. Even at this price, all tickets have been sold. Guests will be able to live in luxury while on the high seas. The ship has eight restaurants that offer 245 different menus - a different menu for every day of the cruise. Guest chefs will create special menus to reflect the destination. A Viking 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 Nordic spa, and a snow grotto where snowflakes fall from the ceiling.
