An old Holland America cruise ship is turning residential, letting travelers live at sea for $8,000 a month while it circumnavigates the globe
In a move that has raised eyebrows and piqued the interest of travel enthusiasts around the world, an old Holland America cruise ship is being transformed into a residential vessel that will offer travelers the opportunity to live at sea for $8,000 a month while it circumnavigates the globe.
The ship in question is the Amsterdam, a 20-year-old vessel that was retired from Holland America’s fleet in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, the ship has been acquired by a company called Storylines, which is converting it into a residential vessel that will be able to accommodate up to 1,000 people at a time.

The idea behind the Amsterdam’s transformation is to offer a new kind of lifestyle for travelers who are looking for adventure and excitement while also enjoying the comfort and amenities of home. The ship will be equipped with a range of facilities, including restaurants, bars, a gym, a spa, a library, and even a golf simulator.
Residents of the Amsterdam will be able to enjoy a range of activities while at sea, including exploring new ports of call, engaging in water sports such as surfing and snorkeling, and taking part in cultural and educational events. They will also have access to a range of concierge services to help them plan their activities and make the most of their time at sea.
Of course, living on a cruise ship isn’t for everyone. There are a number of challenges and considerations that come with this lifestyle, such as the limited space available in cabins, the potential for seasickness, and the need to adjust to life at sea. However, for those who are willing to take on these challenges, the Amsterdam offers a unique opportunity to experience the world in a completely new way.

It remains to be seen how successful the venture will be in the long term, but for now, it seems that there are plenty of people who are excited about the prospect of living on a cruise ship and circumnavigating the globe in style.
