Imagine the ultimate lifestyle that comes with combining a private yacht and a luxury vacation home. A home that takes you all around the globe, allowing you to wake up to new scenery outside your private veranda every few days.
That is what life is like aboard The World, the largest private residential ship on the planet at 644 feet. Since launching in 2002, The World has continuously circumnavigated the globe, spending extensive time in the most exotic and well-traveled ports. It is a lifestyle Residents are truly grateful to live each day.
With only 165 individual homes, The World’s Residents enjoy one of the most exclusive lifestyles imaginable. Not only do Residents own their individual Residences, but collectively, they own the ship, ensuring that the experiences – both onboard and off – are far beyond current luxury travel standards.
Each Resident has an endless thirst for knowledge, adventure and of course, travel. This thirst is not only satisfied by the Ship’s itineraries, which every Resident has a voice in creating each year, but also by the special, in-depth Expeditions and unique Enrichment Program. The Program brings onboard expert guides and lecturers in various fields of expertise – diving, wine tasting, world cultures – to prepare for each port visited, and beyond.
As time passes, neighbors become travel companions and travel companions become good friends. Residents offer one another new ways to experience the many destinations. But above all, they offer each other comfort and good company.
CULINARY & WELLNESS OPTIONS
Inspiration aboard The World also carries over into the culinary realm. World-class dining in any of six onboard dining venues is only the beginning. The food and beverage team continually creates new and exciting cuisine and wine experiences that bring each destination to life.
And when it comes to wellness, the options are endless. Daily exercise and yoga classes, an outdoor fitness area, golf simulator, two pools, and the only regulation-size tennis court at sea make it easy to keep up any fitness regimen. Onboard instructors and experts in golf, diving, and other areas of interest, ensure that you continue to perform your best both on and off the Ship. After a day of activity, residents are able to unwind at The World’s full-service, world-class spa.
EXPEDITIONS AND ADVENTURE
In January 2019, The World will return to the Indian Ocean, visiting Madagascar, one of the most biodiverse islands on the planet, and the Aldabra Group of the Seychelles. These tropical islands are like nowhere else on earth with a large collection of endemic flora and fauna, as well as native lemurs and chameleons. From the arid desert coasts to lush forests and mangrove-lined rivers, Residents will spend time discovering this exceptional and varied coastline. Wildlife encounters continue on the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Aldabra, the Seychelle’s most southerly island, with giant tortoises and incredible coral reefs.
In late summer 2019, The World will embark on a classic maritime adventure on an iconic route that spans 3,500 miles of the High Arctic, traversing across the northern coastline of Canada and Alaska. Residents will be able to spot the whales, polar bears, muskox, and other creatures that call this powerful habitat home, as well as visiting several Inuit communities.
