Luxury Ship The World To Visit Norfolk

On Saturday, October 10, luxury ship The World by Residensea will arrive at the Half Moone Cruise & Celebration Center for an overnight stay. The 644-foot ship is due to arrive at 6 p.m. and depart the following afternoon. The World is the world's largest residential ship; it is the vessel's first visit to Norfolk.

"We're thrilled to welcome The World and its residents to Norfolk," said Nauticus Executive Director, Stephen E. Kirkland. "It's a true testament to the city that the ship is making a port call here."

Since its launch in 2002, this ultra-exclusive vessel of 165 individual homes has continuously circumnavigated the globe, spending extensive time in many exotic and well-traveled ports. The World's residents not only own their respective units, they also collectively own the ship and plan the itineraries of each journey.
