This is the answer we have been waiting for regarding nursing home rates!!!

About two years ago my wife and I were on a cruise
through the western
Mediterranean aboard a Princess liner. At dinner
we noticed an
elderly lady sitting alone along the rail of the
grand stairway in
the main dining room.
I noticed that all the staff, ship officers,
waiters, busboys, etc.
all seemed very familiar with this lady. I asked
our waiter who the
lady was, expecting to be told she owned the line,
but he said he
only knew that she had been on board for the last
four cruises,
back to back.
As we left the dining room one evening, I caught
her eye and stopped
to say hello. We
chatted and I said, "I understand you've been on
this ship for
the last four cruises." She replied, "Yes, that's
true." I stated,
"I don't understand."
She replied without a pause, "It's cheaper than a
nursing home."
So, there will be no nursing home in my future.
When I get old and
I am going to get on a Princess cruise ship. The
average cost for a
nursing home is $200 a day.

I have checked on reservations
at Princess and I
get a long term discount and senior discount price
of $135 per day.
That leaves $65 a day for:
1. Gratuities which will only be $10 per day.
2. I will have as many as 10 meals a day if I can
waddle to the
restaurant or I can have room service (which means
I can have
breakfast in bed
every day of the week.)
3. Princess has as many as three swimming pools, a
workout room, free
washers and dryers and shows every night.
4. They have free toothpaste, razors, soap and
5. They will even treat you like a customer, not a
patient. An extra
worth of tips will have the entire staff
scrambling to help you.
6. I will get to meet new people every 7 to 14
7. TV broken? Light bulb need changing? Need to
have the mattress
replaced? No problem! They will fix everything and
apologize for
8. Clean sheets and towels every day and you don't
even have to ask
9. If you fall in the nursing home and break a
hip, you are on
Medicare. If you fall and break a hip on the
Princess ship, they will
upgrade you
to a suite for the rest of your life. Now hold on
for the best! Do you
to see South America, the Panama Canal, Tahiti,
Australia, New
Asia or name where you want to go? Princess will
have a ship ready to

So don't look for me in a nursing home, just call
shore to ship.
P. S. And don't forget, when you die, they just
dump you over the
at no charge!!
