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.


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.

You can probably do a cruise for about $100 a day, including tips. But keep in mind that the activities on a cruise ship are far beyond what an assisted living center would have. In our 7 night cruise (granted we paid $250 per day per person, but on the Oasis of the Seas) we saw an ice show, a comedian, a lessor comedian, and an improve show. There were several other shows we didn't go to.
