No we haven't booked ;) We couldn't go away for that length of time, we have a dog. Although we do have a cruise booked for January 2020 :clap:
You certainly have something special to look forward to.

I am sure you will have a wonderful adventure, though I couldn’t go away for that long myself - and we don’t even have any pets.

But those that do it, usually say it’s a wonderful experience. Have fun with all the planning.

I quite fancy this so I called my bank manager.
When he stopped laughing he said …………… Nah!

We haven't done a world cruise but we did the Aurora 65 nights South America cruise earlier this year. The main problem I found with insurance was getting a company that would cover our entire payment if we had to cancel before going, particularly if we had to cancel after paying our balance. We were in a mini suite so the amount was considerable. Many of the insurance companies I contacted would only give a total of between £5000 - £10,000 which would not have covered our outlay. Eventually I went through Holiday Extras - P&O's recommended company and Holiday Extras then put me in touch with someone else who would cover this. So if you can't find what you want elsewhere try Holiday Extras.

Insurance costs and availability of a suitable policy will depend on your age and pre-existing conditions.

Will locate a Topic or two and then add them here for you to read …

* TTravel Insurance - any Recommendations

* Travel Insurance - Conundrums

* Travel Insurance

* Travel Insurance - Revisitted

Those are the latest but note that the suggestions may be repeated.

On the subject of insurance, don't forget that your home insurance may not be valid for a prolonged absence. We had to go with a specialist insurer when we were away on a world cruise for 4 months.

I suppose it applies to all holidays but the anticipation and excitement of what is to come must be a lovely feeling...enjoy!

P.s Sadly due to all our charity obligations my family haven't had a holiday in 25 years...

If you have a heart like mine Donations to the 'onelife cruise appeal' would be very much appreciated

Thankyou
