  • Abercrombie and Kent’s 23-day global trip aboard a private Boeing 757 will take off on May 5.
  • The luxurious itinerary starts at $136,000 per person and includes stops in Italy, India, and Nepal.
  • Around-the-world trips, specifically itineraries aboard cruise ships, have been selling fast.

Since the resumption of travel amid COVID-19, travelers have been craving longer and pricier vacations, especially itineraries that circumnavigate the world.

And this eagerness and pent up demand has recently driven cruise goers to fully book months-long world cruises within hours of the itineraries’ debuts.

But unlike companies like Royal Caribbean, Princess Cruises, and Regent Seven Seas Cruises, this global itinerary won’t be based on a cruise ship.

Instead, guests on Abercrombie and Kent’s global vacation will be circumnavigating the world on an ultra-luxurious private jet.
