Welcome on board 'The World': The luxury super-liner of the rich and famous

The most exclusive and luxurious ship on the planet; it's no surprise that only a privileged few will ever have the opportunity to travel in a super-liner of this calibre. But for those who may not have the chance to see it first hand, hellomagazine.com offers an insight into this stunning vessel in which some of its well-heeled passengers actually live on board all year round, sailing the seas at unprecedented levels of comfort.

Ownership of an apartment on this ship will set you back between £825,000 and £5.75 million. Naturally, its super rich passengers are eager to travel surrounded by total luxury and its 165 meticulously designed cabins are more akin to apartments, with sizes ranging from 100m2 to 400m2.

The ship boasts a golf simulator, several swimming pools, a spa, tennis courts, a gym, a library, luxury designer boutiques and four restaurants.

Unlike traditional cruise ships, the staff to passenger ratio is considerably higher, and those privileged enough to be on board year round also benefit from the luxury of choosing their own itinerary through an on board voting system... what more could you ask for?
