Was on a cruise in 2019 and the crew was telling me about a 95 year old guy that lived on the ship. Seemed like a brilliant plan at the time but, six months later when COVID hit, I wondered what happened to him.

a major selling point of residential yachts is the ability to "mix with like-minded community members."

This has to be code for some thing. Hmmm.

That would be so cool to own an apartment where I would wake up every morning listening to my wife vomiting over the railing and then watch her puke after every meal.  Then, I would have neighbors who had trust funds and never worked a day in their pointless lives talk about how lazy everyone else is.  Sounds like a wonderful thing.

The goal is not to actually live on the ship, but make it your legal residence to avoid taxes.

I wonder about medical care. Seems like the shipboard drs wouldn't be experts in gerontology.

Have you ever been on a cruise?

It's grey hair as far as the eye can see.

I wonder how much are the HOA fees.

If you have 11 million and yearly dues you are dumb fark for not having a private boat to go where you want instead of some farking Karen decide where you go.

Well, yeah but I don't imagine that the best doctors say 'you know what? I'm going to work on a cruise ship instead of a hospital.'

How do you know that your local family doctor didn't graduate bottom of his class from med school?

Given the general MD shortage, licensed doctors can get a job in pretty much any town they want, no one has to "settle" for working on a cruise ship.

Medical degree??  Most cruise ships are flagged from Liberia, so I'd be surprised if you needed to have a medical degree to work as a doctor on a cruise ship.
