Plus, as an added perk, North American passengers also receive an on-board credit ranging from $500 to $3,000 for booking by March 30, 2019.

'We invite travelers to celebrate the beginning of a new decade by circumnavigating the globe with this unbelievable Cruise and Maritime Voyages world cruise that saves over $5,000 compared to similar cruises,' said John Dennis, VP sales and marketing.
