Journey Across the Globe
in the Comfort of Your Own Home

Residents of The World experience a Journey of their own choosing across every ocean and every continent on Earth, with extensive time and an unmatched depth of exploration in over 120 ports each year. Itineraries are crafted to maximize Resident experiences at every landing, often spending three days in some cultural capitals. Polar and tropical expeditions are planned each year to provide exploration and access along the planet’s most untamed shores. On colossal glaciers, in ancient castles, at desert oases, and behind closed doors in landmark museums, wineries, and art galleries – all your experiences are led by knowledgeable insiders and outstanding experts in their fields.

2019 Journey

With two highly anticipated Expeditions – Madagascar and the Northwest Passage – and dozens of fascinating destinations along the way, 2019 will be The World’s most remarkable Journeys. Highlights include visits to South Africa, the islands of the Indian Ocean, the Med, the United Kingdom, the Faroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland, East and Southeast Asia, and more.

2020 Journey

2020 promises to be a year to remember with three incredible Expeditions —the Raja Ampat Archipelago, the Kimberley region of Australia, and Antarctica — and dozens of remarkable destinations throughout Australia, South Asia, the Middle East, the Med, Northern Europe, the United Kingdom, North America, South America, and more.


The Living Journey is a collection of journal entries and photographs by our own Residents that offers an exclusive glimpse into their adventures at sea.
