Up to 1,074 lucky travellers will embark on the trip of a lifetime, journeying across more than 130,000 miles on the swanky ship.

Miray International, the masterminds behind the world’s first three-year voyage, have kitted out the vessel with all the home comforts.

The Life At Sea Cruises ship promises “an experience like no other” – which is sure to beat the solace of your extortionate flat by miles.

It boasts a fitness centre, a 24-hour-on-call hospital, a salon, sundeck and swimming pool, while there are several dining options to satisfy foodies.

But there is still plenty more to enjoy and keep your mind occupied when at sea, such as the golf simulator and “enrichment seminars.”

Guests can unwind in the state-of-art spa with a massage and facial or take part in yoga and meditation classes.

If you can’t ditch your day job for the extraordinary jaunt around the world, don’t fret – as some people might be able to take it with them.

As many Brits continue to work remotely post-pandemic, the MV Gemini has been built to accommodate passengers who are on the grind while also on holiday.

The cruise liner is equipped the global Star-Link Wi-Fi, ensuring there is internet access wherever the ship may be.

And best of all, the price of the internet connection is included in the cost of the ticket.

Still, there will be plenty of time for passengers to detach from technology when the ship docks at each destination for several days.

Passengers will be invited to see thirteen of the Wonders of the World after departing from Istanbul, Turkey, on November 1.

Two further pickups will then take place in Barcelona on November 6 and Miami on November 16.

Over a thousand live-in tourists will then set sail on a journey through “the bustling cities of South America to the pristine wilderness of Antarctica“.

The ship will then visit the “warm sunshine and turquoise waters of the Caribbean and Central America”, the “diverse beauty and rich cultures of North America and Hawaii” and the “rich tapestry of cultures, landscapes, and experiences” of North Asia.

The “bucket list” trip will also take holidaymakers to see the “mesmerizing landscapes of the South Pacific and Australia” as well as other incredible destinations.

Entry-level cabins start at 130 square foot for an interior stateroom, while suites and balconies double in size to 260 square foot.

Payment options start from $2,499 (£2,061) per month, which works out as $85 (£70) per night for an all-inclusive room.

The per-month cost is cheaper than plenty of central London flats – with some one-bedroom properties costing upwards of £3k, not including bills.

Alternatively, holidaymakers can pay $29,999 (£24,747) to be onboard the cruise ship for a year.

However, balconies and suites cost substantially more at $6,699 (£5,526) per month.

Irina Strembitsky, Director of Sales & Marketing of Life at Sea Cruises, said: “Life at Sea Cruises offers the ultimate bucket list cruise without having to sacrifice the comforts of home.”

Meanwhile Managing Director of Life at Sea Cruises, Mikael Petterson, stressed that the MV Gemini will also give professionals the opportunity to work flexibly with the “right amenities”.

We previously told how a couple decided to live on a cruise ship full-time and have vowed to never return home.

Angelyn and Richard Burk used to live in Seattle but say it makes more “financial sense” to travel the world via the oceans.

Another woman, Christine Kesteloo, also opened up about her experience settling down on the high seas over the last 12 years.

She claims it costs her less than £71.02 a week and regularly documents her unusual lifestyle on TikTok.

And this man revealed he bought an apartment onboard a cruise ship because it is cheaper than living in San Diego.

Austin Wells said it made sense for him because it was a way for him to travel the globe without “upending his daily routine.”

The cruise will set sail from Istanbul in Turkey on November 1 later this year
