A dream liner

In total, the young man spent 300,000 dollars (about 282,230 euros) to rent a studio on board the MV Narrative for 12 years. The young adventurer will set sail in 2025 when the construction of the liner is complete.

The eleven-story boat will house 500 private rooms and apartments, reports the Ladbible news site. The American studio is equipped with a desk, a bathroom, a pantry and a sofa bed.

Everyone who works in Meta’s virtual reality division will also have access to the gym, farmer’s market and room service. But that’s not all! The giant liner will also house around twenty restaurants, bars, a school, a library, a bank, a clinic, a cinema and even a swimming pool.

What excites me the most is that I don’t have to disrupt my daily routine to see the world. My working hours will be shifted to evenings, nights and very early mornings, but it will allow me to see a city from noon to afternoon Austin Wells told CNBC.

According to The Sun, rent for an apartment in San Diego is about $2,500 (€2,350) a month, compared to $2,000 (€1,880) aboard the ship. As a result, Austin could save $500 (€470) a month on rent.

For its part, 20 Minutes explains that the MV narrative will run on natural gas, thus reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 25%.
