Residensea is the expensive condo ship that the travel channel did a show about. The link Michelle put up appears to be a more affordable condoship. Which includes certain medical care. I would miss having animals. I don't think they would let me take a dog or cat on board.
4) Do I have to pay both an Entrance Fee and a Monthly Fee?

Ans Not actually. Unlike a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) entrance fee, your “ORCA Lifestyle Cruising Program” fee actually purchases your stateroom on the ship. You will then pay a monthly “Residents’ Care Fee” ranging from $2,100 to $3,400 a month based on the size and price of your stateroom (which is at or below the industry standard). This fee pays for the operation of the ship (see #5).
I was looking at the pictures and it's more homey then the Residensea.
