Live aboard a cruise ship that permanently circles the world

Imagine Lost on a boat except everyone is alive, wants to be on the boat and there are no mythical animals. Alright, not Lost. Imagine The Love Boat but the very first cast of guest stars, from the very first episode, never got off the boat.

Maybe neither of those examples properly explain the idea behind The World. Maybe we’ll just let the website explain.

“Since our launch in 2002, The World has continuously circumnavigated the globe, spending extensive time in the most exotic and well-traveled ports, allowing us – the Residents – to wake up in a new destination every few days, exploring with depth we had never before thought possible. It’s a lifestyle we are truly grateful to live each day.

At 644 feet, The World is the largest privately owned yacht on the planet. Each of us owns one or more of the 165 private onboard Residences, and collectively, we own the ship, ensuring that our experiences – both onboard and off – are far beyond current luxury travel standards.”

Wait, we’ve got it. Imagine the show Shipmates but…oh, nevermind.
