Peter Deilmann will embark on its first world cruise in seven years, beginning December 2010, with “European embarkation in Monte Carlo or Funchal, and U.S. embarkation in Los Angeles and San Francisco in January 2011,” Ronald Santangelo, president of Peter Deilmann Cruises in the U.S., told Cruise Industry News.

“It will be a traditional west bound circumnavigation across the Pacific to Hawaii, the South Seas, New Zealand, Australia, Asia, through the Suez Canal, and back to Europe in April,” Santangelo said.

The line will be returning to North America this fall, and South America in the first quarter of 2010.
