Sounds boring to me, but who knows how I'll feel about it at 90?

If you are reasonably healthy and enjoy travelling, I can see how it might appeal to some. You have lots of people to talk to, good food, free entertainment. And nice climate.

Plus in time you get to know the crew and the ins and outs of your cruise ship.

I'm sure that may not appeal to everyone, but compared to independent living it has its advantages. More lively crowds. More energy. etc etc.

It might be fun to try one for a while and then try the other. Then write a book on the experience. Then perhaps we will know more about it. Most of what we read about extended cruising is speculative.
