Blue World Voyages is here with a new type of cruise line -- a healthy kind. Their 350 person luxury cruise ship is for active, health-conscious people who want to enjoy activities like cycling, hiking, yoga, and water sports while sailing the Mediterranean. The small size of this ship allows passengers to visit intimate ports other ships can’t, and the customers are offered farm-to-table food while on deck, as well as the largest sports and spa deck at sea. Blue World’s CEO has a successful track record, too -- he grew Starbucks from 500 stores to 3,000 stores in three years and Four Seasons hotel from 8 hotels of $400M revenue to 42 hotels of $2.5B revenue. Blue World plans to have three ships like this in the next five years, offering travelers an alternative cruise experience.
Founder Profile: Bringing Farm-To-Table to Sea With John Richards Of Blue World Voyages
As many readers may already know Blue World Voyages has been rated by KingsCrowd as a Top Deal, which is reserved for the top 10% of all deals analyzed across the equity crowdfunding market.
Often we hear from potential investors that anyone with experience founding or running companies would just pursue a traditional round of capital rather than from the crowd. That could not be less true for John Richards and his team that all come to this raise with years of experience running major premium consumer brands. Think Starbucks, Four Seasons, Lifetime, Dean & Deluca and more.
Blue World Voyages is on a mission to provide a uniquely new cruise experience for the fitness and health conscious individual. The $60M valuation price tag may seem intimidating at first, but once you start to dig in, you realize that the opportunity to invest in an upstart new premium cruise line has many unique upside benefits.
