A World of Difference

One year, ninety ports of call – Set sail on the journey of a lifetime with The World, Residences at Sea

Where do you live? Very few can say ‘everywhere on Earth’ and mean it. But for those who own a home on The World, the renowned private residential yacht, in essence, that’s the truth.


Life aboard this luxurious vessel caters to a community of like-minded international globetrotters, people who live for a new vista every day and the never-ending opportunity to uncover the most fascinating places on the planet – and enjoy it in exceptional style and comfort, of course. Sailing itineraries are collectively determined by the residents to ensure memorable, multifaceted experiences. For instance, a single year of voyaging can encompass serene islands, colourful cities, historic sites and extreme wildernesses. And since The World will set sail again this summer, there will be no easier, more exhilarating way to traverse the globe, immerse yourself in diverse cultures, swim the pristine oceans, chill out in the world’s most cosmopolitan hotspots and hike terrains rarely travelled.


The World’s 2022 journey begins in the captivating Hawaiian and Pacific islands, before heading to South America, with landings in Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Panama and Colombia to cross off your cultural compass. From there, the vessel will leisurely float through the Caribbean, where jaunts to white sand beaches and colourful seaside towns await. Next, The World crosses the Atlantic to Northern and Western Europe, stopping by Ireland as well as the remote Faroe Islands, before lazily spending two months bobbing through the Mediterranean, slowly making its way to the spectacular Suez Canal, where the journey will then end in Oman and Qatar and marking the New Year in Dubai.


One year. Ninety Ports (with an average of three days docked at each). And hundreds of customised experiences to help bring each destination to life. At each port of call, you’ll have the opportunity to be guided on a range of world-class excursions led by a team of international specialists, such as naturalists, marine biologists, veteran wilderness experts and historians who will deep dive into the unique landscapes and cultures that populate each and every locale. Next year, a trio of tantalising adventures stud the programme – think archipelago and atoll hopping in French Polynesia, uncovering the mysticisms of Pitcairn and Easter Island and trekking the rugged Icelandic terrain.


Interested travellers should know, there are 165 residences, ranging from studio to three-bedroom accommodations, and at any one time, this mega-yacht maintains an average occupancy of 150 to 200. The result is a tranquil, elegant environment, supported by the impeccable, intuitive service of a crew who anticipate your every need. On board, you’ll be surrounded by world-class facilities, which includes restaurants that rival those on terra firma and that host guest chefs such as Soenil Bahadoer, Jonas Andre Navik and Alastair McLeod. The fine dining is complemented by an award-winning wine list, with sommeliers who can take you to wineries often not open to the public, as well as allow you to purchase bottles for your private collection.


Furthermore, The World caters to those with active lifestyles. While you may be diving, snorkelling, hiking or biking on land, at sea, amenities to keep you on your toes include swimming pools, a state-of-the-art gym and sumptuous spa. Even golfers are kept in the swing on putting greens and hi-tech simulators, under the watchful eye of a golf pro, while tennis enthusiasts can play on the only full-size regulation court at sea. There are also plenty of cerebral workouts to keep you entertained, such as a library, cinema, academic lectures from the likes of historians, anthropologists and even Nobel Prize winners.


Although the scenery – all of it sensational – never stays the same, your sense of place, at home in your own residence, remains your anchor and sanctuary. It’s yours, so style it as you wish. As a resident, whenever you return from a day ashore, an overland journey or perhaps time spent away on business, with family or at your other properties, the greeting you always hear when stepping back on board is quite simply: ‘Welcome Home’.

Covid security is paramount, and because The World is free to plot its own course, it can, if necessary, change its itinerary in response to any new development. All residents and crew are fully vaccinated and its COVIDSHIELD program includes enhanced protocols with testing and monitoring an ongoing strategy. But health is always a top priority. Medical and fitness specialists are available to oversee personal training and wellbeing, chefs will follow all necessary dietary requirements – as well as deliver in-residence dining using fresh produce from local markets.
