The desire to discover what lies beyond the horizon has been a part of the human psyche since time commenced. Imagine being pampered at a luxurious resort and waking up each morning to a brand new, stunning view of the world. That is what you will experience on a world cruise!

Theme cruises like these offer unique opportunities to sail with fellow passengers who share your affinity for a certain activity or interest. Sometimes it is the cruise line itself that offers a specific departure date geared towards a particular cruise theme. Other times, it is UncommonCruises.com that organizes and promotes our very own cruise theme departures. Either way, you can join in the fun with other like-minded passengers who share your particular passion or pursuit – whether it is sailing around the world or any other interest or theme.

From time to time, we showcase specific kinds of world cruises in our Featured Cruise Themes section. If you want to automatically receive a monthly e-postcard that will feature a particular world cruise or for that matter other theme cruises, click on the Cruise Theme of the Month box on the right. Or simply come back to our website to see which cruise theme is being showcased as this month’s pick.

Experience the world through your own personal lens, exploring the things that interest you most. Whether that is delving into the culture of each region or touring the fabulous scenery and architecture, there is a world of possibility waiting for you!

Unpack Only

Love to travel, but hate to unpack? On a cruise ship, you can enjoy what the world has to offer and unpack just once. Discover the cultures and ecosystems while remaining as relaxed as possible. See the enticing collection of celebrated marvels of mankind and journey to the unsung destinations. Discover places more wonderful that you possibly imagined whether it is a destination or a state of mind. There is no greater way to see the world!

Intriguing Destinations

Travel over 30,000 nautical miles and visit countless ports, without ever repeating one. These itineraries will make you head spin with exotic possibilities. Escape like Gauguin to the island paradises of the French Polynesia. Take in an opera in Sydney and sail into the heart of China with a stop in Hong Kong. Walk on the streets of gold in Dubai and relax in the serene Mediterranean ports. Let your mind wander in the waters of the Atlantic reflecting on your journey. A world cruise will present a whole new perspective on life.

Your ship’s intimate size allows her to slip easily into ports less visited and more desirable. Take a dance across the oceans, a journey of dreams and distant destinations. Sail through the Panama Canal and along the Mexican Riviera following an escape route to your dream hideaway. Move as one with the tides, the wind of anticipation at your back.

First Class Indulgence

Guests traveling on a world cruise are offered the best amenities and luxury. From black tie galas and themed balls to special perks offered in various ports of call. Fly first class with private car transfers at embarkation and debarkation. Special perks are offered only to those passengers who embark on the entire journey.
