ABSTRACT
The article reports that owners of The World, the cruise ship owned by its residents, are in talks with British agents and operators to persuade them to sell more guest bed nights. The ship has 165 homes, which are owned by 130 people, many of whom allow their staterooms to be sold to cruise passengers when they are not in residence. ResidenSea Resort Ltd., the management company for The World, is promoting awareness of the ship. The World will be in Australia in December 2009 and January 2010.
