There was an email joke about a year ago that it actually could cost seniors less to travel on cruises around the world than to pay for an assisted living facility.

Now, that anecdote is no joke as The World, a ResidenSea Ltd. ship out of Miami, is the first major cruise ship offering “condos for sail” for residents who love cruising. The fare? It’s as vast as the ocean, ranging from $500,000 to $8 million.
