What’s Your Retirement Plan?

Posted by fifthdimension on June 27, 2007

If you’re planning for a retirement home, you might reconsider after reading e-lores nmd knowing all those who have chosen to cruise away their old age! That’s right. There are many people who chose a Holiday Inn or a Super 8 motel over a Nursing Home, but the ones opting for cruiseliners are growing by leaps and bounds.

It might sound weird, but many retired couples have sold off their properties to live on cruise ships for the rest of their life. 82 year old Bea Muller is one of the more popular ladies of the sea.

As per BBC reports on Radio 4, she’s decided to spend the rest of her life on the Queen Elizabeth 2 rather than in a retirement home. You can listen to her plans here.  After her hubby’s death while they were on a world cruise in 2000 , this American woman worked out that the cost of living aboard the luxury liner was the same as taking up residence in Florida.  So she goes!

Interestingly, she’s the only permanent resident on board the QE2.With a small window-less 10×10 foot cabin, that hardly fits a bed and a bathroom smaller than an average closet, Muller’s accommodation may be awfully cramped. But she’s perhaps one of the  happeist persons on earth.  She has full-time maid service, nice dining rooms, doctors, medical center (where she volunteers), spa, beauty salon, computer center, entertainment, dancing and bridge . For seniors who love to travel, this can be a fascinating adventure that would last till the last breath!
