Cruise Ship Condo Choices

Luxury at Sea
Choose from a simple cabin to a lavish four-bedroom penthouse. It all depends on the size of your wallet. If you are a little fuzzy about living or retiring full time on a ship there are other options such as fractional ownership or vacation ownership.


Fractional Ownership
Fractional Ownership means you own a cabin for a fraction of the year. You can use it every year for the amount of time you own it. Fractional ownership gives you the choice of choosing where you want to stay during your visit. Whether it is in the South Pacific, Europe, or the Mediterranean. Every year you can alter where you want to go.


Vacation Ownership Program
Vacation ownership is very similar to timeshare ownership. Here you pay a specified amount for an agreed-upon time frame every year. And vacation on a lavish residential cruise ship every year for life. Similar to time-share stays in vacation homes, you share the expenses while on board.


Overseas Retirement Tips
Be prepared before you go...Whether your plan is to retire overseas or retire on a cruise ship. Little things like stocking up on medications and emailing important documents to yourself could mean the difference between retirement paradise and a retirement nightmare.
