TUCSON, AZ, Oct. 12, 2015 (World View PR) World View, the commercial balloon spaceflight company, has been included in the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book as one of ten elite Fantasy Gifts. The annual Christmas Book will include an exclusive World View package available only to ten Neiman Marcus customers.  This package features the rare opportunity to be a part of a World View test flight with a behind-the-scenes invitation while enjoying luxurious accommodations at the Miraval Resort in Tucson, Ariz. Each package also includes a private tour of Biosphere 2 with original crew member and World View CEO, Jane Poynter, along with a ticket to be one of the first to see Earth from the company’s luxury pressurized capsule.

A luxury experience from launch to landing, a flight with World View is a comfortable way to witness the curvature of Earth and see the sun rise against the inky blackness of space. Passengers will have one-to-two hours to enjoy a view only a select number of people have been able to behold. Floating 100,000 feet above Earth, passengers will have access to wireless internet, an in-flight bar and a lavatory. These modern accommodations are possible thanks to World View’s high-altitude balloon technology, which allows for a smooth and gentle journey without extreme g-forces from rockets.

The annual Neiman Marcus Christmas Book includes products for the ultimate wish list, from exquisite “His and Hers” gifts to highly anticipated luxury automobiles. The debut of the Christmas book marks the official start of the Christmas season each year.

With each purchase of each Neiman Marcus Fantasy Gift, including the exclusive World View package, Neiman Marcus will make a donation to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation, which supports art education and experiences for youth.
