Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live and travel around the world on an ocean-going vessel and work from there?

Have you imagined what it would be like to retire and give up life on land to travel the world in luxury?

Now we offer you such an opportunity.

If you're thinking of giving up life on the mainland then here's our rental plan.

You can rent a stateroom/suite on board, just as you would rent an apartment on land. The minimum rental period is six months and the maximum rental period is unlimited (the total duration of a round the world voyage is about 27 months, but our ships are constantly underway to different destinations after that, so you can live and travel on board for an unlimited period of time)

Monthly rental rates are always per stateroom/suite and are for two people. Please see the stateroom section for a list of facilities and amenities for the stateroom/suite booked.

The rental includes all-inclusive catering, but you also have the option to dine in the themed restaurants on board.

On board, you will find professional services such as-hairdressing, pedicure/manicure, medical/dental care, theatre, casino, etc. Everything is on board just like on land, so you can live on board without having to do without anything.

Think about it, you pay the monthly rent and then you have nothing to worry about. You don't have to pay extra for your meals, you don't have to pay overheads like in an apartment, you don't have to spend money on fuel, you don't have to do the daily shopping because the rent includes everything you need to live on board. If you would like extra services, you pay a fee, but our prices are the same as on land.

The rental price includes everything you need for general life on board in luxurious conditions, with no hidden costs.

The daily per person cost is available from a starting price of $133. And you can travel the world at this price.

We charge a deposit for each stateroom/suite, which will be refunded to you on departure if you cancel your rental. A deposit is required because you pay a monthly rental fee and if for any reason the next rental fee is not paid, the deposit will be deducted from the current monthly rental fee.

The staterooms/suites are spacious and cater to all needs. There isn't as much storage space as with a rental apartment on land, so you will need to think carefully about what and how much clothing you bring with you, and our colleagues will be able to help and advise you before departure.

Medical and dental care is also available on board. Everything is available, like a basic medical and dental clinic. We recommend that you consult your doctor or pharmacist before travelling.

On board the ships, there is basic passenger insurance for all passengers, but we recommend that you take out comprehensive insurance with an insurance company specializing in ships.

You should consult your insurance agent before travelling.


Booking procedure: you select the boat with the departure date, then select the stateroom/suite, then enter your name and email address and send the booking to us. Our staff will contact you by email within 72 hours to answer any questions and finalise your booking.

Once the registration has been sent you do not need it to make any payment!

When looking to live on a boat, there are likely to be many questions. If you have any questions before booking, please email us and ask  and our colleagues will answer  shortly.

We hope we can answer all your questions and welcome you  among our passengers soon.
