The residents of Floating City this coming Christmas will be at the north coast of Africa and the Cape of South Africa in January. It would then go to Australia just in time for the months of summer before traveling across Asia and crossing the Pacific to the US west coast in September.

As for its plush features, there are condominiums aboard the ship will be sold when the initial funding for the construction has been opened. A bedroom unit will be sold starting at $150,000 with several luxury units price that ranges between $7 million to $10 million.
