When a resident aboard The World absolutely must have something—be it foie gras from France, or a sunset camel safari in Australia, or a private dinner for 45 people at the most sought-after restaurant on the planet—they get it. Even if that restaurant is the famed elBulli, which, when it was open, typically carried a 3,000 person waiting list. For the ship’s privileged residents, the impossible is made possible.
Think of The World as a full-service high-rise on water—a megayacht-meets-vacation home with 165 uber-luxe residences. Adventure-seekers can buy or rent the apartments, which range from studios to a six-bedroom penthouse suite. At present, a few units are available for resale, but many residents rent out their apartments like vacation homes. Sale prices range from $1 million to $13 million.
