Crystal Serenity cruises through Sorrento in southern Italy.

Woman pays $164K per year to live on luxury cruise ship

From via

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 crewmembers — nearly seven years.

"My husband introduced me to cruising," she recalled. "Mason was a banker and real estate appraiser and taught me to love cruising. During our 50-year marriage we did 89 cruises. I've done nearly a hundred more and 15 world cruises."

Walter Christen's insight:

What a fantastic way to spend your retirement years. Nice choice of ships also. Crystal Cruises Crystal Serenity is a beautiful luxury cruise ship.
