At each destination, the Magnifica will stop for an average of 13 hours so you can enjoy the port cities along your journey. With so many dream destinations on the route, it’s good to know that the ship will stop in some places for more than 13 hours. Passengers will get more time to explore spots like Bora Bora, Tonga, the Fiji Islands and Hawaii.

As part of the package, you can go on excursions like lagoon snorkeling and national park tours when you reach the shore. Other excursions include food tours, panoramic viewing sites, shopping trips and visits to religious monuments.

Starting at $18,000—that’s not a bad price when you consider all of the places you’ll visit—you can stay in an interior double occupancy stateroom for five months and travel around the world. The tickets are more expensive for suites or rooms with an ocean view.

Tickets are on sale now. Unfortunately, it appears the most affordable rooms are sold out. but if you have some extra cash laying around, we still think this would be the trip of a lifetime!
