An exclusive residential cruise ship – the only one of its kind in existence – named “The World”, moored in the port of Malaga, on the Spanish Costa del Sol, today, Monday September 27, where it will stay for three days.

To get on this 196-meter-long ship, you have to be part of their exclusive maritime community, and it is possible to rent one of the residences, between € 1,000 and € 4,000 per day, but you must first be recommended by one of the owners, then approved by the others, in addition it is necessary to prove a capital of 10 million euros.
About 200 owners normally stay on board for about three or four months at a time and sail around the world, enjoying a life of luxury and care. Each year the owners meet to agree on the sailing route for the following year.
Designed by Norwegians Petter Yran and Bjørn Storbraaten, at an estimated cost of 300 million euros, “The World” made its maiden voyage in 2002, carrying a crew of 250, for the wealthy passengers, who on average have between 50 and 60 years old, and mainly European or North American.
Pamela Conover, Executive Director of this cruise ship admitted: “It has been a difficult 16 months for our residents, who lost their homes at sea. But they have given great support to the operation and especially to our crew, who are like extended family members, ”as reported surinenglish.com.
