Whatever Happened to.....The World

No, not the planet, but the ship owned by ResidenSea. The ship that travels around the world and has everything anyone could need. Part of the ship was condos that were available for purchase, for a hefty sum. You never hear about her.

Yea, come to think about it... I've not heard a lot about them in a while.

She is still out there and still very pricey to buy a condo on her. I had heard that there are plans for more condo ships in the making. I also read that Crystal was going to have some Condo's on some of it's new ships to blend condo and regular cruise ship.

Looked up MS The World on ship locators and the locator shows its in a port, but it doesn't show the year.

After pricing it out, it seems that it would be cheaper to by indefinite B2Bs on a balcony on a Princess ship than to buy one of the condos on The World and pay the monthly fees.

The room would of course be smaller, but a whole lot more to do.

About two years ago, she was anchored offshore from where I live to watch boat races here in Cocoa Beach. She was also docked next to us on our Far East Asia trip. She is alive and well. Her current location is Tasmania off the coast of Australia.

Tasmanians are very (overly?) sensitive to suggestions that they are not part of Australia. Tasmania is Australia just as Hawaii is the USA. We don't say "Hawaii, off the coast of the USA". Maybe "off the coast of mainland Australia/USA" is the way to say it. Sorry for being a bit pedantic.
