For the cruise hounds out there who wish their last va­ca­tion at sea never had to end, there’s good news:

The World awaits. The os­ten­ta­tiously named pri­vate res­i­den­tial lux­ury ship sails around the globe year-round, fuelling its ex­clu­sive group of pas­sen­gers with five-star meals and Antarc­tic ex­pe­di­tions, an ex­pe­ri­ence that’s more Re­lais and Châteaux than Car­ni­val Cruise. Res­i­dents of the 165 liv­ing units spend an av­er­age of three to four months aboard an­nu­ally as the el­e­gantly ap­pointed ship hops from port to port, dock­ing up to five days at a time to al­low for free­wheel­ing ex­plo­ration or guided ex­pe­di­tions. On board, how­ever, the World’s luxe ameni­ties in­clude a 7,000-square-foot spa, six restau­rants, the “Call a Chef” pri­vate din­ing ser­vice, a pool bar, a theatre, a cigar lounge, a full­sized ten­nis court, a golf sim­u­la­tor and a re­tractable ma­rina for wa­ter sports—when life on the waves is so fine, who would ever want to dis­em­bark? Res­i­dences range from $2 mil­lion to $15 mil­lion dol­lars to buy. aboard­the­
