Sourcing of Rental Clients

Storylines handles all rental activity on your behalf. The Storylines team markets your residence’s availability within our network, as well as through the travel agent community and online cruise resellers. 

To ensure that the onboard community is not affected by a change in passengers, we have set certain criteria and safeguards in place. As an example, you may not rent out your residence on Airbnb and there is a 3-month minimum stay for guests unknown to you. 

Family and personal friends may stay for as little or as long as they would like.

Storage Available Onboard for Personal Items

There are no dedicated storage lockers available for rent/purchase. Storage lockers are assigned to residents provided they meet certain criteria, the primary one being that the resident/s must be absent from the vessel for a minimum of 2 months. We expect that people will bring a minimal amount of items including clothes, small personal items, small decorative items, small pieces of art, some books and possibly sports equipment. Storage is not for residents to store things when they initially come on board to carry around the world with them.

Once approved, a small storage locker would be issued large enough to secure personal belongings the resident chose to leave behind. The vessel is not equipped to store large, bulky items such as luggage so please bear that in mind when making travel arrangements.

Renting Out Residences

Residents have the option to rent their residences to offset costs through our Guest at Sea rental program.Please see our website for more details: www.storylines.com/guest-at-sea-program.

3.5 -4 mo is the ‘break even’ point for you being on board. Renting it out the rest of the time would cover the annual assessment fees.

If my friends rent their own unit, would this be another resident’s unit? 

Yes. They get a discount of about 18% off the regular rental rate.

Could my home be rented out to someone else’s guests, for shorter periods than the general minimum 3 months requirement? 

Yes, family or friends of Storylines residents can rent other residents’ units for less than three months.

For guests who are not friends/family, rental periods must be a minimum of three months or longer to preserve continuity and community on board.

Do rental guests get the full suite of “all-inclusive” amenities?

Yes, renters get full access to all the features and amenities covered by the inclusive fee.

Determination of Rental Price

Storylines rental prices are advised by cruise agencies. World cruises and those over two months sell-out over a year in advance, combined with the unique slower pace of Storylines’ cruising averaging 3 days in each port with many overnight stays, and Storylines’ unique residential community style, ensure strong demand, and will earn our residents the highest possible return on investment.

For those interested in renting, please know that availability and pricing will be available in 2024. For now you can register your interest and we will keep you informed when that information is available.
