April 30th – The End of The World Cruise

So, after 115 days, 30,000 nautical miles, 50 ports, and 32 countries, it's all finally coming to an end – we reach Fort Lauderdale tomorrow and we say goodbye to a lot of old friends and a lot of new friends. I must say that this was one of the friendliest and most easy-going of all our World Cruises. A really nice bunch of people who got on very well with each other.

The World Cruise is partly about the onboard experience (which was great), and partly about the destinations, which were as good as ever. My personal highlights (in no particular order) include:
1. The night at the Opera in Sydney
2. Swimming with those enormous tuna in Port Lincoln
3. The Elephants of Pinnawela
4. Going on safari at Ngornogoro
5. Going to see the Cricket in Grenada

It's been a fantastic last 4 months, and we can't wait till the 2016 World Cruise to do it all over again.

In the mean time, we'll have a few days in Florida; then some time in London; a trip to Italy; some more time in London; a campervan trip somewhere (could be France, Spain or Slovenia), then a month on the Silver Spirit in October; then a month somewhere (could be Rome or Seville, or somewhere else – suggestions please); then the UK for Christmas; then back to Fort Lauderdale for the 2016 World Cruise.

Let me know your travel plans for the rest of the year.
