So there is a Cruise Ship where Residents Permanently Live as it Travels the World

As an advocate of trailblazing voyages into the unknown and generally all things off the beaten path, cruise ships probably aren’t my sort of thing. But then I can’t quite decide whether this concept is really terrible, or one that I want to secretly try out in another life. I’m afraid to say I think it might be the latter but technically, this could be considered as “off-beat real estate” (just roll with it).

The World is a private residential cruise ship serving as a residential community, owned by its residents who live on board as the ship travels the globe. It has 165 residences (106 apartments, 19 studio apartments, and 40 studios), all owned by the ship’s Residents who can decorate with their own furniture, art, books and personal touches. There’s a deli and supermarket onboard and six restaurants if you didn’t feel like doing the washing up in your own kitchen. Before I start sounding like a salesperson for the residential cruise ship, I’ll just let you check out their promotional video.

On the one hand, it does feel like it might be one big floating cult. On the other hand, it’s a globe-trekking luxury apartment. I’m so torn…

Check out their video…

The ship is currently on its way to Easter Island according to this marine traffic locator. So there you go. A cruise ship people permanently live on. Just thought I’d put it out there.
