World’s first 3-year-long cruise has officially been revealed

World’s first 3-year-long cruise has officially been revealed

The post-holiday blues can be a real kicker, but a cruise line is solving this with its three-year long cruise that has been revealed.

That’s right, Life at Sea Cruises is taking its own name a bit too literally and offering a three year itinerary that visits 135 countries for about AUD$45,000 per year.

The world’s first – and only – three year cruise will depart from Istanbul on MV Gemini in November 2023 and visit over 100 tropical destinations. The ship, which will cover nearly 210,000kms across all seven continents, has 400 cabins and space for up to 1,074 passengers.

But this cruise isn’t just for retirees (or those who have recently inherited a small fortune). MV Gemini will accommodate those who still need to remotely work, with the vessel able to assist with “office duties from anywhere in the world” through its Starlink Wi-Fi.

“We have developed a first of its kind Business Center at sea with two meeting rooms, 14 offices, a business library, relaxing lounge and a café,” the company website reads.

The site added that the Business Centre also comes fitted with screens, conference equipment, Wi-Fi, printers and staff ‘ready to assist’.

And if that wasn’t enticing enough, the tax breaks of these international residents means that cruise-goers can keep more of what they earn.

Mikael Petterson, Life at Sea Cruises’s managing director, echoed this sentiment in a written statement: “Professionals need connectivity, the right amenities and the functionality to perform their jobs.”

“There is no other cruise that offers this sort of flexibility to their customers.”

Included amenities onboard include all essentials, ‘world class’ local cuisine, entertainment and wash-fold laundry.

“Life at Sea Cruises is the first World Cruise specifically tailored to guests wanting to Cruise, Live, Work and Explore from their Home at Sea,” the cruise line’s website writes. “From a pod system embarkation process to free medical visits, from free wifi to the ability to invite friends and family for free, we have thought of everything you need on an everyday basis to live your life to its fullest. 

“All you need, included in a single package.”

For those with a penchant for the more lavish things in life, the balcony suites can go up to AUD$165,000 per year.

Alongside the 400 cabins is a sun deck, swimming pool, wellness centre, gym, salon, and a sun deck.
