(CNN) — It’s the stuff of travel dreams — or nightmares depending on how prone you are to sea sickness.
Viking Cruises has just launched its “Ultimate World Cruise,” a 245-day luxury journey aimed at setting the Guinness World Record for the longest continuous passenger cruise.
The 930-guest Viking Sun set sail from London’s Greenwich Pier on August 31. Circumnavigating the globe, it will hit six continents, 51 countries and 111 ports along the way.
The eight-month trip, which will end in London, includes stops in Scandinavia, the Caribbean and destinations throughout South America. Then, the ship will continue on to the islands of the South Pacific, followed by Australia and Asia before it returns to the Mediterranean and Europe.
