MIAMI -- ResidenSea is in negotiations to sell its ship, the World,
and the ship's unsold cabin inventory to the people who own their
own apartments on board the vessel.
ResidenSea, which operates the World as a unique cruise concept
that mixes cabins owned condo-style with cabins rented on a per-day
basis, has sold 75% of the apartment residences, or 82 of its 110
two- and three-bedroom apartments on the ship.
ResidenSea said that under the new owners a vacation rental
program will continue to operate, and itineraries will remain
intact for the time being.
A spokeswoman for ResidenSea said the company anticipates an
agreement with the apartment owners will be reached "fairly
shortly." She added: "We don't totally know what will happen ... I
fully anticipate changes will take place."
