Give up the 9 to 5 and LIVE on a cruise ship for £24k a year as it tours the globe


If you’ve been dreaming of quitting the nine-to-five lifestyle, this new cruise might be for you.

Life At Sea Cruises is launching a three-year voyage around the world for people who want to ‘enjoy the best of living and working at sea’.

Billed as the world’s first and only three-year cruise, it’s priced from just £24,200 ($29,999) per person, per year, and will cover more than 130,000 miles, visiting 375 ports across 135 countries and all seven continents.

Travellers cruising on the ‘beautifully’ revamped MV Gemini cruise ship will be able to keep up with their day jobs on board, courtesy of the ship’s ‘modern’ workspace facilities which include a business centre with meeting rooms, 14 office spaces and a library.

Other key features include a ‘state-of-the-art’ wellness centre, a sundeck and a swimming pool. ‘It’s your home at sea with the world as your backyard,’ a statement notes.

With space for up to 1,074 passengers, the vessel boasts 400 cabins, which are shown in renderings to feature grey and cream furnishings and white walls. 

These cabins range from a 130-sq-ft (12 sq m) ‘Virtual Inside’ cabin to ‘Oceanview’ staterooms and 260-sq-ft (24 sq m) balcony suites.
