One of the world’s newest cruise ships will stop at all seven continents.

According to Robb Report and Travel + Leisure, SeaDream Yacht Club has announced its newest luxury cruise ship: the Innovation. The ship is the first new vessel the yacht club has unveiled since its origins in 2001 – and it’s equipped for both tropical and polar expeditions.

The cruise ship joins the ranks of other luxury cruise ships such a Seaborn cruise that visits 62 ports, the Regents Seven Seas’ World Cruise which docks at five continents, and Silversea’s 140-day cruise aboard its luxury Silver Whisper vessel.

For the ship’s longest “Global Yachting” voyage – a 92-day cruise from Hong Kong to Sydney – suites range from $US65,000 to $US175,000 plus additional fees. For the shortest, 11-day cruise to and from Antarctica, suites begin at $US13,000. Reservations opened to the public in April.
