Cruiseship MV Lara
Life At Sea Cruises

This Three-Year Cruise Visits 148 Countries and 7 Continents

Want to see the world without ever having to unpack? Life at Sea has just launched one of the longest cruises in the world—a three-year journey that stops at 382 ports in 148 countries and visits all seven continents. 

The cruise sets sail from Istanbul on November 1, 2023, and visits destinations where “we will always be in summer,” says Ethem Bayramoglu, COO of Miray Cruises. The ship will stay in each port of call for multiple days, allowing travelers time to get off the ship and explore.

The itinerary includes iconic destinations such as the Great Wall of China, Machu Picchu, and the Taj Mahal. 

Depending on how much your monthly rent or mortgage is, this cruise could wind up being cheaper than your current cost of living. Prices start at $38,513 per person per year for an inside cabin (based on double occupancy) and include all meals, weekly housekeeping, weekly laundry service, high-speed internet, and unlimited visits to the onboard hospital (which is equppied with a pharmacy and dentist).

More spacious balcony cabins start at $98,226 per person, per year. Remote workers are encouraged to join the cruise, and the ship’s former casino has even been transformed into a spacious business center featuring meeting rooms, co-working spaces, and offices. 

Although the ship, the MV Laura, has 627 passengers, the cruise will only sell to 80 percent capacity to avoid a crowded feel. Onboard amenities include co-working spaces, a spa and wellness center, gym, sundeck, and a pool and hot tub.
