It would be for me I have seen this monstrosity on a previous visit, each to his own as thankfully they wouldn't accept me on a financial count grin2

You would need to get on well with the neighbours.

Think it is the case of “Don’t judge a book ‘ ,! The apartments inside are amazing like a floating penthouses Suppose if you have done everything and what somebody else to organise your trips to different parts of the world.It has visited some amazing places decided by a committee of owners.
Service fees of 1 million pounds per apartment ! And it is 20 years old now so wonder when the liner will need a full refit.
But a Rich says not my cup of tea !

I understand it is a way of avoiding income tax.

A few years ago we were on QE2. One passenger was an elderly lady who had asked if she could stay on board. Cunard agreed and that was ho2 she lived. She had relatives in many places and would meet them when in port. From what I remember she could not live permanently due to retaining of nationality rules. By going ashore at suitable places shecould then rejoin the ship on it’s return. This was relatively easy as several pirts were regular calls.
I chatted with her an£ we even played on the putting green on board. She won! She had better sea legs than me to compensate for the ship’s movement that was always there in mid Atlantic.
She was happy and in good health and enjoyed meeting people.

I was one of the first Marine Surveyors to conduct a Flag State inspection when it was just about one year old and had called into Portree. The Captain at the time was Norwegian as were a lot of the officers but the Chief Engineer was Scottish keeping up our engineering reputation, the crew were certainly one of the most professional and efficient I came across. As part of the fire safety inspection we were in a mixture of the suites, the “cheaper” ones were very nice while the top of the range were opulent with everything you would wish for and fully self sufficient. I still have the book which I presume was for prospective customers about the build and concept along with the set of cuff links I was given as a momentous.

We all have different tastes. Many of the occupants could be equally mistified by your love of Morgans.
