(MoneyHippo.com) – Many people consider downsizing their homes when it’s time to retire and spending their time relaxing at vacation destinations they’ve never had the chance to visit before. Instead of choosing an apartment, condo, tiny home, or retirement village, some retirees are hitting the high seas for much of the year. But why would seniors choose this lifestyle for their golden years? Here are three top reasons.
- Availability: Some cruise lines cater to retirees and their desire to live on the ocean, offering extended packages that include food, a population of like-minded individuals, and entertainment. The ships provide amenities — with everything a person needs, including healthcare, right onboard.
- Boredom buster: When you’re on a cruise ship, sailing from port to port, there’s never a lack of things to do. Instead of sticking to the same routine every day during retirement, many people find the variety onboard and at ports keeps the spice in life.
- Bucket list: The number-one reason to live on a ship is it finally allows you to visit those places you’ve always wanted to see. You can travel anywhere in the world by choosing the right cruises to get you there, knocking items off your bucket list along the way.
Becoming a nomad and living on the high seas can be expensive, but many retirees believe it’s worth the cost. Would you ever consider the lifestyle?
