Freedom Ship International has created the layout for the world's first city floating on water. The ship's design would be home to 40,000 full time residents, 30,000 daily visitors, 10,000 nightly hotel guests, and 20,000 full time crew. This population of 100,000 people will provide a wealth of talent and diversity for the private businesses aboard the ship and to those they visit daily on their adventures ashore. Over 200 acres of open area are planned for recreation and relaxation. Freedom Ship also plans the biggest duty free retail shopping mall in the world along with the best education and health care facilities available.
The cost - anywhere from $180,000 to $2.5 million as well as a small number of premium suites currently priced up to (hold your breath!) $44 million. Check out the on board subway in the second picture.
This truly blends urban planning and cruising in a way we have never really seen. Price aside, what do you think of the concept?
