The World, A City on the Ocean

The World is a city on the water, a cruise ship that plays home to full time residents, as opposed to vacationing get-a-wayers. For a small fortune, of course.

While drastically different than our typical style of full time traveling, I came across the website for the World today. It’s a cruise ship, but no one onboard has just picked up tickets for a week worth of traveling around the Bahamas. The World is inhabited by residents who purchase anything from a $600,000 studio to an over $13M suite, many of whom live full time on the ship as it slowly makes its way around, and around and around, the world.

Not a shabby way to live if you aren’t prone to seasickness, though I’d prefer to stay in places longer than the 2 to 5 day average dock time the World provides.
