All-inclusive fares range from $4,995 - $34,895 and depend on level of accommodation and itinerary. The rates, based per person, double occupancy, include roundtrip economy air from select North American gateway cities; all transfers; suite accommodations (more than 80% featuring private veranda); onboard meals; beverages, including an extensive list of wines, champagnes, spirits, sodas and bottled water throughout the ship; onboard gratuities and port charges.

The option is available in 30-, 60-, 100-, 200-, and 300-day blocks. Throughout 2002, “The World” will continuously navigate the globe with 29 itineraries ranging from five to 17 days and calling for extended port stays of two to five days which allow guests to experience all of the sights, sounds and flavors of the world's most exciting port cities.
