Residential Cruise Line

All world travelers and lifelong fans of luxury must inevitably retire from the workforce and consider the perfect spot to spend their golden years. From lavish golf residential resorts to upscale condo communities, today's retirees have a multitude of ways to retire in style. The only problem with these retirement options, however, is that they're stationary. Even established retirees can't always afford the cost of a residential home and travel.

That's where the Residential Cruise Line comes in. The luxurious suites for sale on the Magellan are pricey -- $1.8 million to $8 million -- but the amenities are first-rate, and there's no substituting the exclusivity of jet-setting around the world on a cruise ship. RCL also offers fractional ownership on the Magellan, so you can travel for a month or two at a time rather than full-time.

The amenities on this residential cruise ship are astounding. The 860-foot long Magellan features a fully retractable marina, an Aqua spa, a 450-seat broadcast satellite-capable theatre for Broadway-quality entertainment, four fine dining restaurants, two executive helicopters, an observatory, greenhouse, a putting green, a tennis court, and indoor gold simulators spread out over its 15 decks. Bertram fishing boats are available for serious anglers and sunbathers.
