|Every so often, an email will pass through our inboxes that makes us question, is this real? We have encountered romantic proposal packages, 'round the world jaunts aboard private jets, hotel stays in swanky penthouses, and more, all worth your offspring's college tuition. Or a second mortgage. We rounded up a few of the most expensive, over-the-top packages because sometimes it is fun to imagine, what if? Or maybe you have a thick stack of G's burning a hole in your wallet waiting to be spent.
Take, for instance, this luxury cruise from Six Star Cruises: Coming in at a whopping 1 million pounds (that's $1,581,000), this trip cruises around the world for 124 days (which breaks down to 8,000 pounds a day). For UK residents, the voyage begins with a helicopter transport from your home to a London airport (in transit, enjoy caviar worth 4,000 pounds per kilogram and sip on 1,000-year-old tea leaves) before you board a private charter to Los Angeles. The ship stops in 28 locales, including French Polynesia, New Zealand, Tasmania, Australia, and South Africa.
If you'd rather travel by air than by sea, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has partnered with Starquest Expeditions to offer an around the world jaunt aboard a private jet. The 22-day adventure begins in Los Angeles and ends in London, and has layovers in Hawaii, French Polynesia, Australia, Bali, Thailand, India, and Egypt. Accommodations while on land are, of course, provided by Four Seasons. An on-board concierge will arrange tours, outings, spa trips, rounds of golf, and other services for the convenience of the passengers. The price tag? $66,950 per couple. The 2012 trips have filled up but you can be added to the waitlist!
