The World visited Bermuda on Nov 4 - 6 2008 (I think it was her 3rd visit) and she was docked along the Front Street in Hamilton.

Here are the pictures I took of The World.

It's a "big" advantage not to be so large. This ship can sail up many rivers that large cruise ships cannot. We sailed up the Seine river in France as far as Rouen. It was spectacular. The size is not a problem (about 44,000 tons) as the upper decks are made mostly of aluminum and other very lightweight materials so that the ships "sits" in the water well and has a very smooth ride. It can also dock where many cruise ships must anchor.

The World was great. It's definitely very quiet and there are usually more crew than guests onboard. The food in the restaurants is fairly good but extremely expensive so it comes in handy to have a kitchen. I think a port intensive itinerary is ideal because you quickly run out of things to do if you have too many sea days. The service is very good and it's really a kick when you go through the embarkation process; basically, a butler meets you at the dock when the taxi drops you off and escorts you to the front desk, then on to your apartment after the concierge gives you a brief tour. No lines!

I would not recommend the ship to families with children under 12 or so. There's a very small childrens' activity room but not much else for children to do.

I'm a member of Exclusive Resorts and they own several units on the ship so I can go stay aboard as often as I'd like.

I believe there are about 100 apartments from studios to 3 or 4 bedrooms. The max # pax may be around 300 IIRC. I don't think it's ever full and typically there are between 100 to 150 pax onboard at any given time.

I happened to see The World docked in Melbourne today and agree with others; it's much smaller than I imagined, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Whilst in Bermuda the World was moored out on Front Street and I could see it from the balcony of my office - quite often just sat out there "looking in". As noted, there seemed to be more crew than passengers, i rarely saw anyone out on the deck and wonder if there were actually that many people on board. I was also surprised that it was as small as it was but as you say, it allows for you to go where most ships can't.

I must be honest, it is not the sort of cruise that would appeal to me but wow, to live on board would be fantastic! but i can dream.

I am a Carnival fan myself, but I think the move to bigger ships has some very bad points to them.

1) A ship with 5000-7000 passengers docking at islands with population less than 100,000 is not going to be fun, everything of interest will be a mess. And heaven help you if two of these mega-ship visit on the same day.

2) Lack of docking and their replacements. It is my understanding that a number of new dockings are being built on various Caribbean islands but because the present docks are in use the new docks are being built in out-of-the-way places. This can be good, but it can also be very bad.

3) Mega-ships are tall, they are being affected by the weather a bit more. There have been more problems lately with docking these boats in high winds.

I had a group of us on this year, I got a great deal and beleive me it is plenty big enough. Would have loved to been on while it was on the east coast but it didn't seem sensible to spend all that money just to sail out ou our backyards. Definetly wait for right port of call for next year.

It's understandable that you'd be jealous of her, because she's bragging about all this - but I don't exactly think it's jealousy, you're probably just getting annoyed. If she's jealous of you, try to be more understanding. Like, bring it up and say something like, "Try not to look at what you DON'T have," when she says she's jealous of you. And if she keeps bragging and lying like that, she's going to contradict herself in the future and embarrass herself really badly, so when she says something like, "Oh, I got a new car," or "I got all these new clothes and all this money," try and dig for proof. Say something like, "Oh, really, can you show it to me?" But don't say it sounding snobby, sound excited, like "Can I see?!" That way, you'll give her the chance to either milk up the attention or come clean and say she was just kidding.
