Well, I don't want to die like several of my relatives - sitting on the toilet.

We've been on long cruises where a number of people died on the cruise. One was a 65-day around the world cruise -- where 8 people died. One lady bought it in the restaurant at dinner. The ship people handle it very cool and low-key. A bunch of waiters stood around the table holding up tableclothes to make a screen until the ship's doctor came, then they made a moving curtain on the way out of the crew-only exit.

That's for me! We've always considered what to do when/if either of us gets Alzheimers. Current thought is we'll jump off the balcony late at night in the mid-Altantic. Leaving a note for the Doctor so that they won't waste time circling around looking for us.
