Let’s be honest, it’s a dream many of us have. Who wouldn’t want to live on a cruise ship, waking up each morning to a new view as you wander the globe visiting exciting destinations from the comfort of your own home.
One new cruise line is making this dream an affordable reality. Storylines is the world’s first affordable cruise ship company and is selling condos on their first cruise ship starting at just $155,000. Named My Home At Sea, this signature ownership and travel experience is offering cabin/condos aboard a cruise ship that travels the world.
The 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.
Whichever you choose, you’ll find full washrooms, hardwood floors, carpeted living spaces and tasteful furnishings throughout. Storylines has worked with award-winning design firms and decorators to give the spaces a clean, modern feel, with efficient use of space, plenty of storage and up-to-date technology.
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.
All the necessities of daily life are provided for you and included in your fee. Meals, drinks, housekeeping services, access to all facilities, even an on-board medical staff are included.
The company is offering a range of attractive financing options to match your budget, cash flow and time frame. Reserving your cabin-condo is easy, with a fully refundable $5,000 deposit subject to terms and conditions of the agreement.
