Let’s take time to dream. Just for a moment or two. What does your ultimate lifestyle look like?

I’m going to guess that it doesn’t involve working a 9-5 job.

I’ll venture even further and guess that it involves travel, possibly international travel.

No doubt your ultimate lifestyle has a fairly hefty price tag, and hopefully it involves supporting some kind of cause or charity.

And you’ve heard a million times that “if you believe it, you can achieve it”, right?

Are you ready to live a life of luxury ... at sea? Click To Tweet

I’m going to just leave this here for you to ponder … could you live your life at sea, if it meant that you still had all the comforts of  a dream home? Seriously. Could you really imagine owning a 3 bedroom apartment on a ship?

The World is a floating community of 165 residences. Permanent residences. With cafes, gyms, clubs, fine dining, pools, spas, and expeditions at every port!

If you have a budget of around $700,000 to $10 million for your floating home (plus an annual maintenance fee of 10% of that cost), then you, too, could live on The World!
