A NEW NOAH'S ARK?
The $10 billion Freedom Ship would offer 40,000 residents a permanent ocean-going home complete with hospitals, schools, shops, parks and even a small airport.
At 25 storeys high and a mile long - four times longer than the Queen Mary II - the 2.7 million-tonne vessel would be so large that it could never enter a port. Instead, it would circle the globe once every two years, anchoring offshore major cities to allow its residents to enjoy some of the world’s top destinations - or shake off any seasickness.
