At 644 ft (196 m), “The World: luxury residences at sea” is the only private residential community at sea where its residents may travel the globe without ever leaving home. This unique yacht is a complete floating city, equipped with high-end facilities and luxurious amenities that create the most intimate and refined atmosphere for its Residents.
Each of The World’s Residents owns one or more of the 165 private ultra-luxe apartments on board and, together, they own the ship. Life on board is peaceful, friendly and far beyond current luxury travel standards. The strikingly beautiful Ship promises gracious and personal services in a warm, inviting ambience much like that of a private yacht or seaside villa.
When living aboard The World, you float luxuriously from one exotic port to another, enjoying a different journey every year. You even have a voice in upcoming itineraries, rarely visiting the same location twice during any given period of two to three years.
This long-awaited Journey begins in intriguing Singapore before exploration of the exotic islands and bustling cities of Southeast Asia. Late winter brings you to the stunning beaches and vibrant underwater wildlife of the Maldives and Seychelles. Extensive African adventures follow, culminating with an exciting West African Expedition. The World will then head toward Morocco, the Mediterranean, the United Kingdom, and Iceland, before yet another Expedition in spectacular Greenland. Residents & Guests will then journey down the east coast of Canada and the U.S., transit the Panama Canal, and sail down the west coast of South America before a third adventure-filled Expedition in Antarctica.
There’s something about walking through your own door after a day of travel. Curling up with a good book. And enjoying the space and privacy you’ve earned. When you own one of only 165 Residences aboard The World, this is what you experience day in, day out.
You return to your own personal library and wine collection. You peruse your own photo albums. And listen to your favorite music as you rest your head on your own pillow, thinking about what the next day will bring.
