The Old Woman and the Sea


This lady is living out the rest of her life on a cruise ship.  The number put forth is over $164K a year but that really seems like a lot.  With all the deals you see out there including slow periods, I believe this could be a lot cheaper.  Seems to me a half or a third of the price could easily be had.  That would be comparable to retirement communities.  I can’t find the link but we have proposed this concept before on this blog but I will say it it again.  Have found an answer for where to put grandma in the future?  Floating nursing homes?
