Forget around the world in 180 days, this is the future.

Today, Holland America announced that, departing in January, the MS Amsterdam will set sail on a 112-day circumnavigation of the globe, its seventh in just over a decade.  According to the Holland America website, the voyage, leaving from Fort Lauderdale, includes stops in the Carribean and parts of South America, before heading around Cape Horn and down to Antarctica.  Then west to Tahiti, followed by Australia, the Far East and Indian Ocean, before transiting the Suez Canal, to the Mediterranean and back to South Florida.

What’s the price tag for such a voyage?  A mere $23,799 per person.  Then again you can always try getting a job.
