Carrie found an awesome deal on a 2-week cruise from Mallorca, Spain, to Colon, Panama.
It was half as expensive for us to take the cruise, as it was to fly.
So, even though it takes 2 weeks longer (15 days instead of 10 hours), we took the cruise.
We’ve never done this before, but after our first day here on the Royal Caribbean’s Grandeur of the Seas, we are LOVING it.
I’m actually on that cruise right now, somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean, posting this from the ship.
What an amazing planet we live on, and an amazing time we live in.
The cruise (for 2) cost $900. The Internet, for 500 minutes, costs $150.
$900 for 2 people for 2 weeks, food included (not alcohol or soda).
When we lived in our house 3 years ago, our mortgage used to cost us $1,620/month.
With utilities, our house cost about $2,100/month.
Let’s assume we could find a deal like this cruise every 2 weeks back-to-back . (Maybe not do-able, but it’s possible that could happen).
1 month of cruising the ocean with several port stops = $2,100. ($1,800 ($900* 2 cruises) + $300 ($150 Internet * 2 cruises))
1 month of mortgage + utilities = $2,100. ($1,620 mortgage +$480 Utilities/phone/etc.)
Something to consider:
There are lots of ways you can live, especially if your income and lifestyle require only an intermittent Internet connection.
