We live on five-star cruise ships full time – it saves us loads of cash on bills AND we can relax by the pool every day


LAYING besides a pool, sipping on a cocktail before going for a leisurely stroll around a nearby tourist hotspot is most people's idea of the ideal holiday.

But for savvy couple Angelyn and Richard Burk, this is just what everyday life looks like for the foreseeable future.

The retired pair – who are originally from Seattle – have been travelling around the globe on luxury five-star cruises since May 2021.

Speaking to CNN, the couple explained how they'll travel around Costa Rica, Mexico, Canada, Alaska, Japan, Vietnam and Indonesia this year – all while living the life of luxury.

In total, it costs the pair just £32 a day to live on the all-inclusive cruise.

As such, the couple believe their lifestyle is actually SAVING them money – as assisted living quarters can easily cost thousands every month.

Angelyn explained: "We have secured 86 cruise days with an average all-in cost of $89 per day for both of us.

"That includes room, food, entertainment, transportation, gratuity, port fees and taxes."

Needless to say, the couple try and stay on the same boat for as long as possible to keep costs down.

She added: "Where else can you have your resort take you to different countries while relaxing by the pool or sleeping in a comfortable bed?!"
