Life at Sea Cruises has started accepting reservations for what it refers to as the “ultimate bucket list”—a three-year world cruise that would travel more than 130,000 miles, stop in 135 countries, and visit all seven continents. Furthermore, it is shockingly inexpensive, costing only $30,000 a year.
The ship’s itinerary, which departs from Istanbul on November 1, lists a long list of destinations, from Zhanjiang, China, to Aberdeen, Scotland. 400 cabins will be filled, carrying up to 1,074 guests.
A conference center with 14 offices, meeting rooms and a lounge that all passengers are free to use is aboard the Life at Sea Cruise, in addition to the various amenities you’d expect on a cruise, such as restaurants, pools and entertainment.
Of course, part of the plan is to take advantage of the significant number of remote workers who have discovered during the pandemic that they can get their jobs done without the daily trip to the office. When these workers work abroad, they can take advantage of several tax benefits.
Also, they might be able to save a ton on other expenses. On a ship, there are no utility fees. Medical examinations and visits, port taxes, and service fees are all included in the price. Internet is also included. The company claims that costs even cover food and drink expenses.
Also, you do not have to be alone on the cruise. There is no charge if someone stays in your cabin, but friends and relatives must pay local port taxes and fees. Also, you do not have to take a lot of luggage on board. When you make a reservation, the cruise operator will send you a pod, which consists of two lockers, to pack and mail to the ship before you set sail.
A standard inside cabin is about 130 square feet and costs $30,000 per year. An excellent outside cabin, 142 square feet, costs just under $41,000 per year.
If you prefer suite life, you can spend $110,000 a year for a 210-square-foot room with a balcony.
