Default Could you live on this Freedom Ship?

This is a Concept Ship in the works…

Could you live on the Freedom Ship? This ship will be almost 1 mile long and has it’s own airport on the top deck. It will take 2 years to travel around the world. If you want to see more pictures go to

This has been in the works for several years now. Nothing has ever come of it. Don't know if it ever will, but I would NOT want to be on it. :O)

I don't think I would enjoy that. To me, cruises are a vacation. If they actually made me work a normal 9-5 job on a ship, that would take all the fun out of it.

Cheers,

Sorry, but no interest at all. It seems to me the only thing Freedom Ship has in common with a standard cruise ship is that it floats on the water. Freedom strikes me as having more in common with a pre-planned gated community development (such as Blackhawk, CA, where your town has a wall around it and staffed checkpoints to regulate entry). Perhaps that's more the market they would tap into.

I doubt if any of us will ever see a ship like that! I think it is a scam to get money from investors.

I think the Freedom Ship has a future when we run out of land and need it to grow food for the world's out-of-control population. Would I like to live on it? I've seen the drawings of what potential apartments and leisure space would be like and I thought they were quite beautiful. If they'd let me bring my cats, I'd move. No cats, I stay ashore.

I would not want to be on that! Bigger is not better if you ask me.

I would not want to live on that. Part of the joy of cruising is the anticipation, and that it isn't an everyday experience.

Living on a huge floating unprotected target in times of world instability wouldn't be wise. If everyone gives up nukes and starts growing flower gardens, maybe. I'm not holding my breath at this time.

No matter how luxurious it is, I think I'd get tired of walking the same decks every day and would rather sail on a real ship than a high rent raft. There's something about watching the waves crash against the bow, the graceful lines of a seagoing vessel, the rhythms of daily shipboard life that I think I would miss on a manmade island. It will probably spend much of its time anchored in port, and for that one might as well enjoy the extra amenities of a fine hotel or resort. Besides, they probably wouldn't let me drive my roadster top down around the promenade when I get the urge.

The ship seems like it would be nice and all, but I would NOT want to live on it for two years straight. I'd start to miss my family and my friends. And I think that cruises are supposed to be little vacations, not a place to live.
