That's for two. Regent is certainly a deluxe line. Smaller ships, all inclusive. No tipping.

Friends owned this boat and traveled through Europe and the Caribbean for several years... **** with kids ****. Now they're living the normal suburban lifestyle.

I met them about a year after they sold it and moved to our neighborhood. I suspect growing twins was a factor in them moving back on land.

The kind of experience you'll never regret. The cruising: the neighborhood thing may be not so much... ;-)

Yes, I was a little surprised. No tipping on this line. I guess on a very long cruise some guests might get under the skin of some staff but I rather enjoyed the company of these ladies. They were in our cooking course and always seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Oceania has an around the world cruise that lasts 180 days and goes for $35K/person in an inside cabin. (Tips included, free wifi. and a few free shore excursions). I think it might include a drink package as well. Substantially cheaper than the report.......

Before you buy the boat, run a simulation.
Compared to owning and maintaining a boat, my RV'ing is a piece of cake. Much less time and money involved too.

The bigger the boat, the more work one has to do. Ugh! Of course if one is filthy rich and just keeps writing checks... But then, it may be a lot simpler just to rent a boat when one is wanted. About living full-time on one, I prefer to be on terra firma, or it has to be as big as a cruise ship for no motion.

In addition to all the other issues pointed out so far, I wonder how one continues to (for instance) own securities and bank accounts and (anything else the gummint wants to know about) without a permanent address. Most financial institutions will not open (or maintain) accounts without a permanent street address. They won't even allow our bank statements to be forwarded when we stay at our summer location. Changing the address is problematic in that both persons on an account must request a COA - found out the hard way on this one.

I know that there are probably ways around such things. Still, it's clear that such issues add a layer of hassle and requirements for "sharpness" that many folks in their 80s (heck, late 60's) may no longer have. Just sayin, as YMMV.
