Luxury cruiseliner offers ‘lifetime access’ for one-time, six-figure sum

A luxury cruiseliner is now offering retirees the chance to live on its ships and travel the world for a flat sum – and it may be more economical than keeping a home.

Villa Vie Residences’s new Endless Horizons program requires a one-time payment of $299,999 for single-occupancy. For a double-occupancy cabin, the price increases to $499,999.

Passengers will sail on the Villa Vie Odyssey ship, which embarks on a seven-continent adventure on May 30. The ship is currently docked in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

In a press release, the company explained that the “lifetime access” deal caters to individuals who “envision their retirement years as a time for exploration and personal growth.”

“Villa Vie Residences makes this possible by combining the comforts of home with the excitement of travel,” the statement explained.

“Residents will enjoy a guaranteed Outside Cabin and access to more than 50 active interest groups ranging from culinary arts to fitness and purposeful exploration, ensuring a vibrant and engaging community atmosphere.”
