Search for a cruise ship
The World is a single luxury cruise liner which is owned by its residents.
While many of the facilities are similar to those found on other cruises, with pools, bars, casinos, a cinema and even the world's first onboard tennis court, as well as a top-end spa, there are no cabins. Rather, the ship is divided into plush residential apartments, the majority of which are owned by private individuals.
It is possible to get a taste of this life by renting one of these apartments from its owner. There are of course no set itineraries or return trips - the cruise is continuous and covers all corners of the globe, the ship generally following the best weather or special events, such as the Cannes Film Festival or the Rio Carnival.
The enhanced privacy means a quieter cruise for more independent cruisers who like to manage their own onboard activities.
