Couple Will Live On Cruise Ship For The Rest Of Their Lives As It Is Cheaper Than Paying Their Mortgage

A couple from the state of Washington, USA, have said that they are planning to spend the rest of their lives living aboard a huge cruise liner as it is cheaper than paying off the rest of their mortgage.


Angelyn and Burk Richard are long-time lovers of cruising and travelling since taking their first trip together in 1992. They usually take around 1 trip per-year, but after making the calculations they realised they would be better off staying on a cruise long-term and selling their home.


Angelyn said:


"We really enjoy cruising and being able to visit different parts of the world without hopping on an airplane. Our original plan was to stay in different countries for a month at a time and eventually retire to cruise ships as we got older. We love to travel and we were searching for a way to continuously travel in our retirement that made financial sense."


The couple, who are in their early fifties, have left their 9 to 5 jobs behind, taking only one suitcase with them, and have been living the cruise life for just over a year.


Angelyn continued:


"We have been frugal all our lives to save and invest in order to achieve our goal. We are not into materialistic things but experiences. We don't plan to permanently live on land in the future."


In total, the cost of living on board costs the couple $86 per day, for both of them, this including all expenses such as food and beverages. They also get perks due to their company loyalty and from paying long-term.


The couple told CNN:


"Currently, this year, we have secured 86 cruise days with an average all-in cost of $89 per day for both of us. Which includes room, food, entertainment, transportation, gratuity, port fees, and taxes. This is well within our retirement budget. I believe this is achievable for the everyday cruiser, but it does take effort. It is leisurely travel without the complications of booking hotels, restaurants, and transportation while staying within our budget."


The couple has so far visited destinations such as Singapore, Italy, Canada, Iceland, and the Bahamas and hope to visit many more countries over the coming years.
