Round-the-world cruise is cheaper for pensioners than retirement home
Pensioner pals who book a round-the-world cruise together can pay less for their adventure than the cost of two rooms in a residential care home.
Research by CruiseDeals.co.uk (https://www.cruisedeals.co.uk) has found that a 120-day voyage that visits five continents and includes food, drink, utilities and even live entertainment starts from GBP 8,279 per person when two share – a daily rate of just GBP 73 per person per day.
In comparison, a study by Which? puts the average cost of a residential care home in the UK at GBP 85 per person per day, which is an extra expense of almost GBP 1,500 for the same 120 day period.
