Interim Vessel Availability before the M/V Narrative’s Completion

For those who wish to sail and start their Storylines lifestyle sooner, an interim vessel will be made available while the M/V Narrative’s  construction is ongoing. 

Once the main vessel residences are sold out,  around mid-2021, future residents may opt to join a chartered vessel suitable for this purpose. 

This chartered vessel won’t have all the lifestyle offerings taken into account of the M/V Narrative, however, it will  have the same itinerary, include some modifications in the public spaces and a similarly minded community akin to what you will enjoy on your new ship in 2023. Those on board will help pioneer aspects of the lifestyle and amenities  -making life aboard the official launch, even better.

*ONLY be available for future residents. 

**The pricing of this option will not be affected by your residence purchase, they will be treated as 2 separate offers IE: one does not affect the other.

The Itinerary

Departing from Portugal or Venice, our maiden voyage will embark upon a 1000 day circumnavigation of the globe, visiting 100 destinations across  six continents.

Storylines cruises slowly, based on the belief it takes more time to know a destination than the 8 hours allowed by traditional cruise lines. We average 3 days in each port-of-call, with many overnight stays.  This unique approach allows you time to find your favorite coffee shop, see all of the sights at your own pace, and make new friends in exotic locations. 

Uniquely, as an owner of the ship, you always have input into what happens next. This means our residents can vote to stay longer in their favorite destinations or agree to avoid unfavorable weather conditions.

Choose Your Destinations

After the first voyage is complete, residents may vote preferences for subsequent itineraries.  To view a sample itinerary, click here.

Launch Date of the MV Narrative

In the 4th quarter of 2023, we will embark on our maiden voyage, departing from the south of Europe and following the sun around the globe continuing on our first 3-1/2 year circumnavigation.

With only 627 cruise residences originally available we expect to sell out early next year. Talk to a residential adviser today for more information.

Come and Go as You Please – You Are at Home

This is your home, come and go as you please. Live aboard full-time aboard or rent out your residence as you wish. Invite visitors to stay with you or allow friends to enjoy your residence while you are away. 

Be Spontaneous

As an example the M/V Narrative will take over a month to skirt the Italian coast, this allows for longer offshore adventures such as hiring a car and touring the Tuscany region for a few days before rejoining your home at sea.
