Biden’s failed policies and skyrocketing inflation rates have not only harmed the travel industry – but they’ve wreaked havoc on the lives of Americans.
One couple did the math and actually found it would be cheaper to give up their home – and live on a cruise ship – permanently.
Now free to travel and see the world, you’ll be shocked by the incredible way this couple is making it work.
I admit – it’s pretty unconventional.
For Angelyn and Richard Burk – the decision was easy.
They love to travel – especially on cruise ships.
And when they crunched the numbers, they found if they sold their home, it would actually be cheaper to take a “permanent cruise” than live onshore.
So the couple made it happen – and now they spend their days hopping from cruise ship to cruise ship – staying on each one as long as they can to get the biggest bang for their buck.
And if you think about it – everything they need is right there!
They don’t have to worry about buying groceries or paying for gas.
The ship affords them the opportunity to travel the world and be entertained – and eat whatever they want!
Angelyn broke down the numbers – and it’s actually quite reasonable.
“Currently, this year, we have secured 86 cruise days with an average all-in cost of $89/day for both of us,” she says via email. “Which includes room, food, entertainment, transportation, gratuity, port fees and taxes.”
“This is well within our retirement budget,” she says, adding that taking frequent cruises has led to the couple being offered deep discounts on future sailings through loyalty programs.
When asked what the advantages were for living on a cruise ship – Angelyn didn’t miss a beat.
“Where else can you have your resort take you to different countries while relaxing by the pool or sleeping in a comfortable bed?”
While the notion of selling your home to live on a ship for 86 days out of the year sounds pretty nuts at first – when you think about it – it’s actually quite brilliant.
The couple loves to travel – and are spending their retirement years doing what they love.
Not to mention, with the skyrocketing prices of gas, food, and housing – many people are looking for alternative ways to not only survive – but thrive.
So if you’re getting close to retirement – and are looking for a unique way to spend your time – consider the life of permanent cruises!
While it’s not for everyone, it could be a fun way to live it up – at least for a few months (or years).
