"Lee Wachtstetter, an 86-year-old Florida widow, took her daughter's advice. She sold her five bedroom Fort Lauderdale area home on 10 acres and became a permanent luxury cruise ship resident after her husband died.

Mama Lee, as she's known aboard the 11-year-old Crystal Serenity, has been living on the 1,070-passenger vessel longer than most of its 655 crew members — nearly seven years."

Sounds like a lonely life to have chosen to live on a cruise ship. It might seem OK at first but after 2 or 3 months, I'd be jumping ship.

Agreed!  When the first residence type ships emerged I thought that would be the way to go--not that I could ever afford it; but I thought that would be heaven.  But after taking a few longer cruises, I decided you can actually get too much of a good thing.

I'm amazed that many of my non cruising friends want to discuss this news story about the lady with money to burn.

I think the people who don't cruise often or who have never cruised think being on a ship is never ending fun, fun, fun and you could never get bored with that. Right.  Roll Eyes

Don't get me wrong, it is fun but anything overly repetitious becomes drudgery after weeks of the same old thing every day. Just how many times can you see the same shows, the same movies, sit by the pool listening to the same songs as the cruise before, watch the ice carvings, the fruit carvings or hear the cruise director tell the same jokes?
There comes a point when even listening to the BBC seems exciting.  Shocked
