The lowest cost residential property
to live aboard for one month annually on level V is $16,026.65 inclusive of maintenance fees.
If you averaged owning this property
over a 20 year period this would be $801.33 for roughly a month each year (28
Days). Total accommodation pricing in the initial year would be $28.62 per
day. Much less than what it would cost to live on or retire on a cruise
ship, but why would you want to. This is a one bedroom and bathroom condo
type residence with a kitchenette, totaling 325 square feet. Much larger
than most cruise ship cabin accommodations. This is the accommodation only
expense. For a couple living onboard by the month as a part time resident,
the price would be $400.67 per person, or $14.31 per day, if two persons were
residing. This is with our annual fractional ownership programs.

Years ago our development group
considered the rebuilding and refitting of retired ships into condo and
apartment units, but these ships were retired for a reason. The cruising
lines that were operating these boats knew they were no longer fit for the seas,
and with rising fuel prices, the expenses to operate would not be feasible.
This is just one of many reasons
why we are building our new luxury liners with the extensive use of alternative
and renewable fuel sources. Solar power, wind power, and other forms of
hybrid energy sources to supply electricity. We are also building our
liners with a twin hull. Two parallel hulls that provide more than double
the comfort compared to single hulls, and more room.
