If travelling is your thing, you can work from anywhere and you’ve got about R500,000 lying around there’s a cruise ship waiting for you to board.

Life at Sea Cruises is launching a three-year voyage on the MV Gemini. The cruise ship sets sail from Istanbul on 1 November so you’ve still got a few months to get your passport and your money in order.

CNN reports that the company is promising to tick off 375 ports around the world, visiting 135 countries and all seven continents. The ship will cover more than 130,000 miles over the three years, taking in iconic sights from Rio de Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer statue and India’s Taj Mahal, to Mexico’s Chicken Itza, the pyramids of Giza to 103 tropical islands.

If you’d like some extra time at specific destinations, you’re in for a treat because out of the 375 ports, 208 will be overnight stops.

The MV Gemini will undergo a total refurbishment before it sets sail. There will be 400 cabins with room for 1,074 passengers. Seeing as remote working has become the norm, the cruise ship will not only offer traditional cruise ship amenities like restaurants and entertainment, but also remote working facilities.

It will even have a full-scale business centre with meeting rooms, 14 offices, a business library and a lounge. Access to everything will be free.

If you’re worried about your health, don’t worry because there will also be a 24-hour hospital with free medical visits.
