The world’s largest privately owned yacht will drop anchor in Victoria this June, according to the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority’s 2017 cruise ship schedule.
 
Appropriately named MS The World, the ultra-luxury ship spans nearly 200 meters in length and is comprised of 165 private residences estimated to be valued between US$600,000 for a small studio apartment to nearly $14,000,000 for a lavish three-bedroom suite.
 
The World is scheduled to dock at Victoria’s Ogden Point cruise ship terminal on June 29th en-route from Hilo, Hawaii. The ship will depart Victoria and head for Vancouver on June 30th, with stops on Saltspring Island, Telegraph Cove and Port Hardy also on its itinerary.
 
The live-aboard yacht is home to residents from over 40 countries, some of whom live on the vessel full-time while others hop aboard for part of the year. On average, The World is home to 150-to-200 passengers at any one time.
 
Ogden Point’s 2017 cruise ship schedule will be the busiest on-record with 241 cruise ship visits scheduled between spring and fall. The first vessel of the season, the 2,600-passenger Star Princess, will arrive from Los Angeles on April 10th. The 3,100-passenger Explorer of the Seas, arriving from San Francisco, will officially end the season with its visit on October 5th. C
