What do we know about Virgin Voyages? This new cruise line promises to change cruising forever. From dining and entertainment to wellness and rejuvenation, nearly every single element of the Virgin Voyages journey will bring a unique Virgin Style to the high seas – and not just for the 2,800 Sailors, but also for the 1,150 crew members who will reside there and make amazing happen.
All passengers must be 18 years and older to sail with Virgin Voyages. The cruise line’s first cruise ship will be based in Miami, Florida and sail cruises to the Caribbean. Itineraries and ports of call will be announced at a later date. Visit VirginVoyages.com for more information.
Blue World Voyages
Former Starbucks President John B. Richards is serving as the CEO of this new cruise line. Blue World Voyages is promising to create a ship that is unlike any other cruise ship at sea. Blue World Voyages’ first 350 passenger cruise ship will debut in 2019 and will have 26 cabins you can purchase as a home, a lap pool in the ocean, beds by the pool deck so you can sleep under the stars, and staterooms for solo travelers.

Blue World Voyages will be 100% geared towards active cruisers. The five star cruise ships will have staterooms that are twice the size of normal cruise cabins and everything will be dedicated to those living active, healthy lifestyles.
Not only will their first ship will have a sea water lap pool, but the ship will have the first full spa deck at sea and first full sports deck at sea. Blue World Voyages will begin sailing in the Mediterranean in May 2019 and will be a “gouge-free price zone”. Visit BlueWorldVoyages.com.
The world’s first affordable cruise ship that you can live on with condo/cabins starting at just $155,000. The average entry price will be less than $355,000 with monthly fees similar to the cost of living in a major city. Named My Home At Sea, this signature ownership and travel experience is offering cabin/condos aboard a cruise ship that travels the world. For photo renderings, click here.
Storylines is re-imagining the cruise ship business by refitting well loved commercial cruise ships into residential communities at sea. Their cabin-condo owners are invited to join a unique lifestyle of freedom and comfort aboard luxury ocean liners that travel the world continuously.
Their first 24,000 gross ton cruise ship is bringing the beauty of classic ocean travel into the 21st century. The vessel will offer 450 cabins broken into five tiers that will range from $155,000 to $1.4 million. The ship will first set sail in August 2019 after receiving a $40 million renovation.
The itinerary is set only from point-to-point every 2 weeks to allow for provisioning and safe running of the vessel. All other ports and locations in between those dates are voted on by you, as a cabin-condo owner, via their app. This innovative approach allows the on-board community to choose destinations just a few days in advance.
