Have you ever fantasized about throwing it all up, leaving everything behind, and traveling to get away from your obligations?
Don’t you think it sounds good? But, it also sounds pricey. Or, at least, it did until today, when a cruise line announced a three-year, 130,000-mile, “leave your daily life” voyage for a reasonably priced $30,000 per person per year.
Bookings have begun for Life at Sea Cruises’ three-year journey on the MV Gemini, which departs from Istanbul on November 1.
Yeah, November 1, 2023, giving you eight months to prepare your passport, travel-related immunizations, and remote working capabilities.
The firm promises to stop at 375 ports while traveling to 135 nations and all seven continents. During the course of three years, the ship will travel more than 130,000 miles, stopping at famous locations including the Great Wall of China, the Pyramids of Giza, the Taj Mahal, the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, and Chichen Itza in Mexico. Even travels to 103 “tropical islands” are included. 208 of those 375 ports are overnight stops, allowing you more time to explore the location.
The business is a division of Miray Cruises, which operates the MV Gemini while it is currently sailing through Turkey and Greece. The business has been in the cruise business for 30 years. For the trip, the MV Gemini will receive an overhaul.
Up to 1,074 persons can fit in its 400 cabins.
The Gemini will also be outfitted with remote working facilities due to the nature of the journey and in addition to the usual cruise ship amenities, dining, and entertainment. The company advertises a full-service business center with 14 offices, 14 meeting rooms, a business library, and a lounge—presumably for your coffee breaks in between shifts. It is free to use.
