World Cruising by Numbers – You’ll Be Surprised!


While you’re soaking up the sun, sipping on a cocktail, unwinding at the spa and helping yourself to the buffet, cruises can seem incredibly effortless. Yet for the army of staff that make sure things run like clockwork, pulling off the perfect cruise takes a huge amount of effort. Especially if it’s an epic round the world voyage covering tens of thousands of nautical miles. To give you an idea of just how much heavy lifting is required, we’ve put together a snapshot of some of the mind boggling numbers that make up an average global circumnavigation itinerary for some of the world’s leading lines.

  • 234,210 – The number of bread rolls served up on a Princess Cruises voyage to 25 countries
  • 195,120 – The number of eggs gobbled up on a Crystal Cruises 108 day voyage
  • 4,000 – The number of champagne bottles popped on a Holland America Line trip covering 46,000 nautical miles
  • 320 – Pounds of caviar consumed during a 116 day Seabourn cruise
  • 4700 – Bottles of coke handed out on a 33,399 nautical mile Princess Cruise trip
  • 70,632 – Croissants served on a Crystal Cruises voyage clocking up 32,706 nautical miles
  • 84 – Passengers celebrating their birthday’s on a round the world Holland America Line cruise to 25 countries
  • 8,200 – Pounds of beef tenderloin served up on a Seabourn world expedition voyage

Pretty impressive numbers… Who would have thought that 108 days on ship would call for almost 200,000 eggs? Crystal Cruises must have a seriously spacious pantry!
