There was a lady on NCL that did that. IIRC, she was from NY and she said that it was cheaper to do that than to live in NYC.

Every once in a while she would change ships.

Criscomia...what gave it away ? (VBG)

actually I have been thinking about it since my near death experiences in 2003 & 2004 (health) and then last year with Hurricane Katrina (I did not evacuate and actually saw 150 mph winds and know several friends that lost everything including their homes and lives)..that, my friend puts life in a different perspective

so everyday when I walk and pick up loose change, when I gather $1.00 a play lottery and dream about the above..I'm actually on target to achieve almost all of the above over the next few years (God willing) but most look forward to taking my first grandchild on Disney like I took his Dad on the Big Red Boat back in the 80's

Venice........I'm so sorry to hear about your health problem and Hurricane Katrina. Between those to things, that's enough to do you in. I know, we went through Hurricane Wilma.......I know it wasn't as bad as what you went through, but we just finally got our roof back on our shop (26,000 sq. ft) and had it inspected. I mean the entire roof was gone. Thank God we didn't loose anything else.
I hope all your dreams come true and you get to do your Dream Wish Cruises!

I hear you I am over all the Hurricanes too. Even here in Va we assisted over 3000 evacuees from Katrina in the Norfolk area. Let alone all the others while we were trying help the Katrina clients. * I would buy an owners cabin and just live on the ship.*It don't matter which one.

Katluc and I have the same thought I just happen to have them in my favorites file on my computer.

I would buy a 2 bedroom apartment, and sail away. If our son and daughter-in-law wanted to join us for a few weeks, there would be enough room for them.
What a dream

Happy Sailing to all;
David

We would sell everything and move onto a ship and cruise for the rest of our time.

I agree with Mehawk. I would also like to be able to take my family, including my five brothers and sisters and all their children, and my mother whenever they wanted to go. That would be Heaven!!!
