It started with a vision

A few years ago an entrepreneur and competitive rower, climber, sports and yoga enthusiast had a ridiculously bold idea.

To find people with similar healthy, active lifestyles and combine all the things they love about life into something called a cruise.

Not a floating amusement park, but a ship designed from the hull up to appeal to people who preferred doing the activities they routinely do on land – and allow them to do the same things when vacationing at sea. Cycling. Hiking. Sports. Exercise. Anything and everything to improve their health and stimulate their mind and body. All while traveling from one stunning, exotic, undiscovered place to another.

No tour busses lined up to greet passengers who, along with a few thousand of their closest friends, waited an hour to disembark. No formal attire or goofy cruise director. No slot machines. No shuffleboard.

The cruise experience as it existed had to be reinvented. Reimagined.

Blue World is founded on the philosophy that people who value self-improvement and good health are entitled to have a blast once in a while. Everything on our ship reflects that.

Introducing Blue World Voyages


For starters, it’s a much more intimate vessel*. You won’t find hordes of people standing in line to get their third ‘drink special of the day’. You will find like-minded, healthy, active passengers (and those who aspire to be healthy and active).

An entire deck dedicated to wellness, including the largest spa facility (per passenger) at sea. A whole other deck just for sports and fitness. Including a bike fitting station, the world’s largest ocean-going functional training and strength conditioning facility, even a state-of-the-art golf school.

Our land excursions are equally outside the cruise box. Onshore, our adventure partners (including some of the world’s leading outdoor and wellness publications) help us provide passengers with top-flight equipment and expert supervision, for any sport or activity, and challenges for every level.

We also threw the traditional cruise buffet overboard.

Instead, you’ll find a farm-to-table restaurant. A wine and food pairing lounge. Cooking demonstration kitchens. And – if you like frozen food you may not be on the right ship – our chefs go ashore in each port to procure the freshest locally-sourced, sustainable ingredients.

For all the above reasons, Blue World is confident our passengers will call their voyage with us the cruise of a lifetime.

But some can also call it home.

As part of our quest to completely turn the traditional cruise world upside down, we offer 40 spacious, spectacular one and two-bedroom Residences.

Most importantly, our Founder, Gene Meehan, insisted on surrounding himself with folks who have extensive experience in running some of the most successful brands in the cruise, fitness, and hospitality industries. Not surprisingly, they also run, bike, hike, kayak, golf, climb, dive, play squash, and spend a lot of time in yoga, Pilates, and TRX studios.

Like you, They are just a few of the 42 million people in this country who value an active, healthy lifestyle. We welcome every one of you to join us on a Blue World cruise. Preferably, not all at once.

*425 cruise passengers and 100 owners.
