Hey lajuin and bookish, thanks I didn't see this one. Jenny is trying to sleep so I will play this tomorrow.
Thanks lajuin. Amazing, isn't it?!
I found this video for a glimpse.
I think the novelty would wear off quick, mind you it wouldn't be too bad to sample, would it?! Thanks.
Wow, Robbie. Hubby and I are amazed something like this exists. But then, what not, for the super rich! Though I tend to agree with you - not year round.
Yes it sure is, thanks Celeste.
Wow that is one big boat.. :) giggles
Hi lajuin, google The World and you can see some of the interiors. Sorry, I only know how to put pictures on from I-photo, thanks.
Seems that I need to make friends with an owner of a "World Suite". Wonder if it is anyone that I know? Hmmm
Thanks for this pic. If you find any of interiors please pass along.
Sounds great Jacques, I'll give you some local Black Rum!
Very poetic BJ, thanks.
So you can go around the world in the world. mmmmm
I wish I was on that cruise ship was, I would like a box of Belgian chocolates bring for you and Jenny!
Thanks Hanne, JB and yellow. I certainly would not like this lifestyle, too confining. Maybe for 6 months or so. A lot of the residents fly back and forth, but I would tire of that too, even with the money!
Wow, I thought this ship looked familiar . . . .The World was visiting NE in October. We went down to the pier to check it out (no, we didn't go onboard) when it was in our port on Oct. 15th. Awesome, the size just blows one's mind! Thanks, Robbie :))
I LOVE the concept. You and your home traveling the world. No need for suitcases. That would be an incredible dream to live!
I wonder how the reality would be if you could really afford it?
A floating town! A fine idea, if you can afford it: you stay at home and go to all the exotic places sitting in your living room!! Well, well, well! Thanks so very much Robbie!
Jenny has informed me that The World was here for three DAYS not YEARS.....Sorry about that.
Thanks to all....chookies, chickie, PKH,Nova, PPM, gem,PK, LJ and Healer.

Awesome thanks Robbie
Fantastic idea...I wonder how expensive it is.
What an enchanting idea! Does she sail under any particular flag?
It's a beaut.......!!!!
The best of all worlds!
Wow, like owning a condo that sails!
She's one fine lookin' baby!!
