Reimagining the cruise ship experience, Storylines is building a thriving residential community at sea that provides each member with the opportunity to live a premium life of freedom and exploration as part- or full-time owners,” the company said.

This new vessel is designed to cater to the unique community we are offering and every aspect of the ship from the room layout to the culinary offerings and the spa to the itinerary has been thoughtfully planned out.”
Our aim is to disrupt and revolutionise travel and lifestyle options for citizens-of-the-world who appreciate adventure,” noted Co-Founder Shannon Lee.
“Our goal is to attract like-minded residents who, at varying stages of their lives—whether early retirement, digital nomads or families that are looking for new ways to enhance their lifestyle—to integrate global travel and cultural immersion as part of their life’s journey.”
The product will offer “adventure-seeking experiences that are integrated into curated itineraries with immersive shore excursions”. Enriching educational and entertainment experiences, spa services that feature local elements, and a signature Chef’s Table Market Gallery will be offered on board.
