http://www.cnbc.com/id/102352057 Extremely short article I came upon while reading Yahoo Finance. Cliffs: Old ladys' husband died, she sold their 10acre Florida estate and started cruising Lived on Cruise for almost 7 years now Cost for this year estimated at 164k According to comments, it's apparently smart to do because retirement home cost 150k/year anyway? What say you Rich Sherdogger? EDIT: Oh yeah, for people that don't Math. It's slightly under 14k per month.
