Imagine traveling the world without ever leaving your home. That’s the reality for residents of Blue World Voyages; the first active lifestyle cruise line. If you want in on the action, Blue World Voyages is accepting registration for Owners Club residences onboard its first-ever private residential community-at sea ship.
“We are pushing boundaries in the luxury travel market with these Owners Residences to provide an entirely new experience for global travelers,” said Fredy Dellis, co-founder, Blue World Voyages and former president and CEO of The World at ResidenSea. “As interest in niche cruises surges, along with the continued rise of the healthy lifestyle market, we expect this unique combination to appeal to sophisticated travelers who would want to own a home at sea.”
Luxury one and two-bedroom apartments on the ship’s two upper deck will be available exclusively for Owners Club. The units, designed and styled by renowned marine design architects Tomas Tillberg International and Juan Poggi Designs, feature two designs styles for the fully-furnished homes: Classic or Contemporary.
Unlike cramped cruise cabins, the two-bedroom apartments feature 1,200 square feet of living space; featuring a split-level design with a spacious living area that opens to a large balcony. The second level will include master and guest bedrooms, both with walk-in closets and luxurious bathrooms. And, if you’ve ever dreamt of sleeping under the stars, the master bedroom features a private balcony, accommodating an outdoor bed just for that purpose. The one-bedroom apartments boast 850 square feet on a single level also with a private balcony. So just what does living at sea cost? Two-bedroom units run $3,350,000 while one-bedroom apartments cost $2,350,000.
Exuding luxury, all residences will feature exclusive amenities including private butler service, concierge service, and access to the Owners Club private lounge and bar, in addition to full access to state-of-the-art wellness facilities, healthy gourmet dining, and onboard sports experts. With a focus on a healthy, active lifestyle the ship features two full decks entirely dedicated to sports, wellness and spa amenities, including a functional training and strength conditioning center, Hank
Haney Golf School, soccer simulators, batting cages, plus the largest per guest spa afloat with a relaxing therapy tub.
The ship includes three pools, and when docked, a seawater lap pool lowered directly into the ocean adjacent to the vessel for swimming in the deep blue depths. You just can’t find that in your gated community on land.
Locally-sourced farm-to-table cuisine and active shore excursions including snorkeling, scuba diving, golf, and more rounds out the guest experience. The ship’s itineraries will be unconventional, focusing on less-frequented ports of call in the Mediterranean before sailing west to explore the coasts of Ireland, England, and Scotland. During the winter, she will cruise the South American coast. Driven by shoreside activities related to physical activities; destinations focus on discovery, cultural, food, and wine. “As an owner or guests may want to stay on the ship for several weeks at a time, itineraries will be varied and fluid while allowing extended overnight stays in ports pending local interests and events, like the Rome Marathon or The Open Championship in Scotland” added Dellis.
Why limit your travels to a few short weeks when your entire life can be a vacation?
