The Itinerary

Our maiden voyage will embark upon a never-ending circumnavigation of the globe, visiting hundreds of destinations across six continents.

Storylines cruises slowly, based on the belief that it takes more time to know a destination than the 8 hours allowed by traditional cruise lines. We spend 1-5 days in each port with an average of three days, with most stops having at least one overnight stay.  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 a resident 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 on interesting interim stops between larger ports of call.

The itinerary will be set at least a year in advance for the major ports where you can fly in and out of. The smaller in-between ports are more variable. Please see the Sample Itinerary on the website and the Storylines Blog for updates regarding destinations that may be on the itinerary.

Polar Regions

Will Storylines be traveling in polar regions?

MV Narrative is not an ice-class rated vessel so it will have limited access in the polar circles. We will be partnering with third-party expedition operators suited to those regions to take our residents on special excursions when we are navigating near those geographical locations. Keep in mind that other vessels of this size which are also not ice class have successfully navigated the Arctic Circle including the Northwest Passage.

Interim Vessel before MV Narrative’s Completion

For those who wish to sail and start their Storylines global lifestyle sooner, an interim vessel may be made available while MV Narrative’s  construction is ongoing. 

Once MV Narrative’s residences are sold out, future residents may opt to join a chartered vessel suitable for this purpose. 

This chartered vessel won’t have all the lifestyle offerings of MV Narrative, however, it will  have a similarly minded community akin to what you will enjoy on your new ship. Those on board will help pioneer aspects of the lifestyle  – making life aboard the official launch of the new ship even better.

*ONLY available for future residents. 

**The pricing of this option will not be affected by your residential investment; they will be treated as 2 separate offers – one does not affect the other.

Spontaneous Adventures

There will be plenty of opportunities for spontaneous adventures. As an example, MV Narrative will be spending over a month skirting the Italian coast which 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.
