"This is more comfortable than my bed at home."

It’s safe to say you don’t know luxury until you’ve showered in a spacious, gilded bathroom stocked with organic skincare products more than 40,000 feet in the air.

Filmmaker Casey Neistat documented his 14-hour journey from Dubai to New York aboard one of the fanciest vessels out there.

Emirates upgraded the YouTube personality from business to first class for free. The seat would have cost him more than $21,000, he said. And while it might seem unimaginable to think of spending that amount of money on, well, anything, just wait until you see the luxuries he enjoyed.

He was treated to automatic window shades.

Just touch a button.

And caviar.

Again, just touch a button.

A personal bar.

Yep, you still just need to touch a button.

And just wait until you see the bed, swag bag and bathroom.
