Sail Away into the Sunset

Here's a bit of tongue-in-cheek retirement planning advice from the "Silver Tsunami" generation. It is circulating on the Internet without attribution.

There will be no nursing home in my future.........

When I get old and feeble, I am going to get on a Princess
Cruise Ship. The average cost for a nursing home is $200
per day. I have checked on reservations at Princess and
I can get a long term discount and senior discount price
of $135 per day. That leaves $65 a day for:

1. Gratuities which will only be $10 per day.

2. I will have as many as 10 meals a day if I can waddle
to the restaurant, or I can have room service (which
means I can have breakfast in bed every day of the week).

3. Princess has as many as three swimming pools, a workout
room, free washers and dryers, and shows every night.

4. They have free toothpaste and
razors, and free soap and shampoo.

5. They will even treat you like a customer, not
a patient. An extra $5 worth of tips will have
the entire staff scrambling to help you.

6. I will get to meet new people every 7 or 14 days.

7. T.V. broken? Light bulb need changing? Need to have
the mattress replaced? No Problem! They will fix
everything and apologize for your inconvenience.

8. Clean sheets and towels every day, and
you don't even have to ask for them.

9. If you fall in the nursing home and break a hip you are on
Medicare. If you fall and break a hip on the Princess ship
they will upgrade you to a suite for the rest of your life.

Now hold on for the best! Do you want to see South America, the
Panama Canal, Tahiti, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, or name
where you want to go? Princess will have a ship ready to go.

So don't look for me in a nursing home, just call shore to ship.
