The World in One City

 

This week Liverpool saw The World visiting the city for four days. The ship is unique in that it is not a cruise ship but a set of floating residential apartments, a Norwegian built luxury liner aboard which property prices range from £500,000 to £13 million, with an annual service charge of over £220,000 as well.

 

The World is a ship serving as a residential community owned by its residents. The residents, from about 40 different countries, live on board as the ship circumnavigates the globe - staying in most ports from two  to five days.Some residents live on board full time while others visit their floating home periodically throughout the year.  It is operated by ResidenSea, whose  headquarters are in Florida.

 

She is a 43,000-tonne vessel and is 196m long. Two of its 12 decks, are reserved for shopping and leisure. As well as restaurants and cafés it also has a theatre, casino and nightclub, a golf centre with driving ranges, a health spa, workout room and sauna treatment rooms.

 

Its passengers and captain choose where it stops and what they do ashore.

 

As the darkness set at the Cruise Liner Facility the reflections in the river became stronger and the lights added a further dimension.
