Couple Decides To Live On A Cruise Ship Permanently After Finding It’s Cheaper Than Paying Mortgage
A couple have traded life on dry land for sailing the seven seas. And I’m not just talking living on a little sailing boat and fishing for lunch, but settling down on cruise ships.
Finding it to be cheaper than paying a mortgage, Seattle couple Angelyn and Richard Burk ditched their jobs for a new start.
With just one suitcase each and a unique choice of home, the pair aren’t too different to Zach and Cody on The Suite Life on Deck – probably just without the chaos and Debby Ryan. The Burk’s life at sea began in May 2021 and according to their research, this unusual method of living on cruise ships is much prettier on their pockets and bank accounts than paying off a mortgage.

“We love to travel, and we were searching for a way to continuously travel in our retirement that made financial sense.” Angelyn, a former accountant, explained to Australia’s 7News a year after their adventure began.
Both Angelyn and Richard are in their 50s and realised they could continue their love of travelling for the rest of their lives, travelling for as little as $62 AUD ($40 USD, £32) a day. So far, they’ve hopped on and off various cruise ships around the world, including a 51-day trip from Seattle to Sydney. Some of their top spots have been Singapore, Italy, Canada and the Bahamas.
“Our original plan was to stay in different countries for a month at a time and eventually retire to cruise ships as we got older,” Angelyn explained. “We love to travel and we were searching for a way to continuously travel in our retirement that made financial sense.”
The couple live a frugal life, and thanks to their loyalty memberships and by taking advantage of sales, they could retire right away.
