J and S

I'm not sure what you're referring to. If you mean life onboard as a crewmember, or life on board as a passenger.
2007 - Majesty of the Seas (Bahamas)
2009 - Enchantment of the Seas (Western Caribbean)
2010 - Freedom of the Seas (Western Caribbean)
2013 - Golden Princess (Alaska, roundtrip from Seattle)

Live on board, how does that work and how much does it cost?
I imagine those who do this have their agent arrange it through the cruise line and they negotiate a special rate. I wouldn't be surprised if some form of financial guarantee had to be established.

Costs in the U.S. for a senior citizen assisted living facility can easily top $100,000 per year for a married couple. In fact that is probably below the median. It depends on the location. So, if you are looking at paying $280 per day I guess it is easy to see how a ship can be cheaper and offer more than the typical retirement home.

I don't think I'd like to do it though.

I don't think the ships take Medicare Cards:-)

But I think I could try living onboard for a year or so.....Dave, we did it in the service:-)

It just wouldn't be the same. No sleeping in a smelly berthing compartment; no field days; no standing watch from 11pm to 3am; no working parties; no "sweepers sweepers, man your brooms"; no GQ drills. I don't know if I could stand it.
