Retired Widow Makes Permanent Home On Cruise Ship

A retired British woman has decided to sail round the world permanently on a luxury cruise ship because it costs no more than staying in an old people’s home, a newspaper reported on Sunday.

Beatrice Muller, 82, only pays 55 per cent of the official brochure price for making her home on the QE2 due to loyalty bonuses from five previous world cruises.

Muller chose to make the liner her full-time home after the death of her husband two years ago. She pays ?3,424 ($4,818) a month to reside in Cabin 4068.

The very basic, minimum cost of living in an old people’s home in London is about ?2,000, she told the Sunday Express
