If you’re think­ing more se­ri­ously about the con­cept of re­tir­ing on a ship, you can test the waters by tak­ing an ex­tended cruise of three to seven months. Most of the ma­jor lines op­er­ate world voy­ages, cov­er­ing sev­eral con­ti­nents, and then you can dis­em­bark with a clearer idea of whether the cruis­ing life is right for you.
