It is scheduled to start operating short cruises around the Greek islands in these months and in

November it will be ready

for the long-term cruise.

According to Petterson, the company discovered "a long-term

void in the global cruise market

" and decided to fill it with "the right size ship and the expertise to make it happen."

The manager stressed that they are targeting early or retired people between the ages of 50 and 70, but it is

a product suitable for "anyone who wants to travel the world at their own pace

."

Pricing starts at $29,999 per year and payment options start at $2,499 per month, all-inclusive.

Those prices are for the smallest and interior cabins, although instead of windows they have screens where you can see the sea live, with a surface area of ​​130 square feet (almost 13 square meters).

For 260-square-foot (24.1-square-meter) ocean-view staterooms and balcony suites, they go up to $6,699 per month.

Passengers are promised

meals, entertainment and recreational activities

, but also

"connectivity"

and the comforts and functionality to be able to work on board.

The ship will include a

24-hour on-call hospital

with free medical visits, learning and enrichment classes, and the opportunity to make a positive impact through volunteer and philanthropic initiatives.

According to Life at Sea, passengers can get additional tax benefits if they work as international residents on board the ship.

Petterson said many people have expressed interest in doing just one year of the voyage, but only the three-year duration is offered for now, and he said there is a matchmaking chat

room

so solo travelers can share cabins.
