This is a great chance to visit the most extraordinary and dangerous places in the world, take excellent photos capturing marvelous sea and landscapes, watch animals like arctic foxes, polar bears, penguins, seals, whales, or swim in the azure water somewhere in the ocean. An experienced captain will accompany you on your expedition trip adventure and safely run the ship to reach your dream destinations, while other members of the crew will make sure you receive the best service on board. The five-decked explorer is a perfect opportunity for guests to travel the world by sailing through the Arctic, the Tropics, and other remote, majestic, and mesmerizing parts of the world.
The hardest part of getting ready to sail across the globe is planning. It’s not an easy task, even if you’re a seasoned traveler and have incredible organizational skills. To help you get ready for the adventure of a lifetime, here’s a step-by-step guide for CLN on how to plan the world trip by yacht you’ve always dreamed of.
Step 1: Plan your ideal route
Create your travel bucket list, ranked by importance, interest, and convenience. Think about how long you’re going to spend in each place. Take the weather and seasons of each place into account. You should also consider whether there are any special festivals or events that you would like to attend.
Step 2: Make some research on your travel destination
Learn as much as you can about the places on your destination list. Follow Instagram travel accounts, read Wikitravel articles, guidebooks, and travel blogs, watch documentaries, and videos on Youtube. TripAdvisor is another great way to learn more about your travel destination before you go there.
Step 3: Manage your travel budget
Making a travel budget is an essential part of planning your vacation. You can estimate, plan, and track your travel expenses for accommodation, meals, and transportation, as well as visas and border fees with Budget Your Trip’s travel tools and widgets.
Step 4: Keep your money safe
Carrying too much cash is quite insecure. If your wallet is stolen, your cash is lost. Consider using a credit card, too. Pick a card that doesn’t charge foreign transaction fees and includes fraud protection. Anyway, most of your money should be kept in a bank account that doesn’t have card access but can be accessed online, so that you can transfer your money into a new account if your card is stolen.
Step 5: Make copies of your personal documents
Before traveling, make multiple copies of your passport, and visas. You can save the scanned copies on secure cloud storage as well. If you lose your documents or they are stolen, the copies will be handy.
Step 6: Check your passport
Each country has different entry and exit requirements. Some countries require travel visas, some even require transit visas. Make some research in advance as things can always change. In general, many countries that require a visa to enter will require at least six months validity on your passport when entering the country, so make sure you find out whether your passport has long enough before it expires. It’s also important to check the number of empty pages in your passport.
Step 7: Vaccination and travel medication
Staying healthy should be your main priority. Find out what vaccinations you need as soon as you have your route figured out, so you can get them done in advance. If you take any medications, make sure you take enough onboard. Making a list of emergency contact numbers is also a good idea.
Step 8: Buy travel insurance
Get travel insurance that will cover all expenses for health issues, emergency medical assistance, trip cancellation and delay, lost luggage and personal belongings, and anything else you need to be covered.
Step 9: Pack wisely
Packing for a world trip can be a challenging task. But it can be less stressful if you make a packing list. Start your packing process days or even weeks ahead of your departure date. This is the best way to ensure that you don’t forget to take something important
Step 10: Get the ball rolling
Enjoy the world exploration onboard the luxury explorer yacht with excellent service and lavish entertainment such as the one provided by Ahoy Club. You will be surrounded by beautiful views while observing magnificent seascapes and landscapes. The design, luxury amenities, and facilities will make your journey unforgettable. So what are you waiting for? Get ready, and get going!
