rismedia 20th june
the new cruise line that pioneered affordable luxury cruise ship condominiums is already working on its next two medium size ships.
the excutive vice president of the co. says"we sold almost 80% of the available condos on our first ship in about 20 weeks".
the ship will be drydocked in singapore and the renovations should be compleat by early december.
the as yet unnamed ship will then be deliverd to its home port of san francisco where it will begin the first of its two year long world wide voyages.
the young cruise line gained notoriety last january when it announced it was taking semi-retierd cruise ships and converting about two thirds of the staterooms into multi-room luxury condo suites.
condo cruise lies has four more ships to be targeted for conversion.
prices started out at 349,000$ and went as high as 529,000$.we didnt sell a single 349,000$ suite so we eliminated the small single suites and converted them to larger three room penthouses and sold out.

exquiste
excelence
experience
extreme
expresion

The World

The World was built a few years ago by one of the members of the Kloster shipping family. It was a financial failure and was taken over by the owners of the on board appartments.
With the current price of oil it must be very much more expensive to operate the ship. I find it difficult to believe that any more ships will be built, but you never know.

The bum boat men in Port Said will make a fortune selling camel stools to this group of gullible punters. May I have the snake oil concession.
