This cruise will take you around the world for $30K/year
Now that the pandemic has put a new lease on life for companies willing to allow their employees to work from home permanently, the crews are getting creative.
Life at Sea Cruise Company is offering a three-year world cruise, starting at $30,000 per year, that will cover “130,000 miles in all seven continents and 135 countries.” According to its website.
Passengers have three options: departing from Istanbul on November 1, Barcelona on November 5, or Miami on November 16.
“Life at Sea Cruises is the first world cruise designed exclusively for guests who want to cruise, live, work and explore from their home at sea,” the website adds.
“From the pod system embarkation process to free medical appointments, from free WIFI to the ability to call friends and family for free, we’ve thought of everything you need on a daily basis to live your life to the fullest.”
Interested travelers must sign up for all three years.
Packages include 13-foot-wide stateroom cabins that run $30,000 per person for each year, or $180,000 for two people for all three years. Or you can get balcony suites, which double in size and go for $109,000 per year.
There is also the option of an outdoor cabin, which at its cheapest option runs $37,000 per person.
You must secure your cabin with a $5,000 deposit. A minimum down payment of $45,000 is required by May.
Price includes all meals, housekeeping and alcoholic beverages with dinner.
There’s also a full-scale business center with meeting rooms, 14 offices, a business library and a lounge for all your work-from-home-or, in this case, work-from-sea.
“Professionals need connectivity, the right amenities and functionality to do their jobs,” Michael Patterson, managing director of Life at Sea Cruises, said in a statement. “There is no other cruise that offers its customers this kind of flexibility.”
Comprised of 400 cabins, the cruise can accommodate 1,074 passengers.
Features include a sun deck and swimming pool, a fitness center, an auditorium and “multiple dining options” – as well as a gym and a salon.
Onboard instructors will be present to teach dance and music.
