The World

The World is the only private residential community-at-sea where its residents may travel the globe without ever leaving home. Since it first set sail in 2002, The World has visited over 800 ports in approximately 140 countries. With a continuous worldwide itinerary that enables the vessel to span the globe every two-to-three years, the ship is a complete floating city, equipped with high-end facilities and luxurious amenities that create an intimate, refined atmosphere for resident owners.

The World is privately owned by residents – 130 families from 19 countries – North America (49%), various European countries (36%), Asia, Australia, South America and South Africa (15%) who spend on average four months on board every year.

The World’s Captains and residents collectively determine the ship’s yearly itinerary based on the best sea routes and residents’ personal interests. Continuous worldwide journeys, with a focus on extended stays of an average 3 days in port, ensure that residents & guests have sufficient time to explore their favourite destinations.
