Ships tend to have portal style doors which you have to step over

Fuskie, I have never seen one of those on a cruise ship. They resemble hotels much more than ships.

They do have round port hole windows in some cabins.

Seasickness is more of a problem. Some people have trouble getting used to being at sea.

And the distances to be walked on the larger ships might be a concern.

But actually the numbers don't work so well. Independent living apartments with food service and activities can be had for $60/day. Most cruise ships start at about $100/day for the lowest cost cruises in the smallest cabins.

People who need more extensive care pay more--as much as $200/day, but they are not going to get that care on a cruise ship.
