The World Returns to the South of France in Summer 2016

August 2016
Private Residential Ship to spend 11-nights exploring the Mediterranean Ports

 

The World private residental ship (aboardtheworld.com) will visit the South of France in early August during a seven-month exploration of Europe. Collioure, Sanary-sur-Mer, Marseille and Nice are all cherished ports of the Ship’s 142 familes that call the Ship their home and will be visited on the 2016 sailing journey. Residents & Guests will immerse themselves in an abundance of cultural and gourmet experiences from exclusive tours of Catalan wine makers to perfume-making in Grasse.

Prior to The World’s arrival into Europe, the Ship enjoyed an exceptional expedition to Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands plus a journey to South America including in-depth explorations of Argentina and Brazil. Before sailing into the Mediterranean, The World completed an extensive dry-dock in April 2016. In addition to general maintenance to keep the Ship in superior condition, a number of refurbishments were carried out including a complete redesign of the Ship’s Marina restaurant, resulting in the addition of a stunning retractable floor-to-ceiling glass window overlooking the water sports deck and a Chefs Table showcasing the preparation of cuisine from around the globe.

The World will spend the remaining summer months in the Mediterranean – exploring the Balearics, Catalonia, Southern Italy and island-hopping through Greece. The mega yacht will then pass through the Suez Canal and on to destinations in the Middle East, India, Maldives and Malaysia before a 12-day expedition to Borneo in Southeast Asia, known for its biodiverse rainforest, extensive coral reef system and indigenous wildlife. The year will end with a call to Western Australia and a New Year’s Eve fireworks celebration on Sydney Harbour. In 2016 The World will sail 39,000 nautical miles and visit 104 ports of call.
