Good Deal: This San Diego Man Decides To Buy An Apartment On A Cruise Ship – Since It Is Cheaper

Some people decide to invest in an apartment and live on an island in the Caribbean, in the beautiful Maldives, or in the posh country called Singapore. 

But what if you hear about a house literally on a cruise ship? This man from San Diego believes this is the best deal he is ever going to strike in his entire life. Not only can he live and travel the world, but this apartment on a cruise is, well, even cheaper. Read on for the details. 


The man, a 28-year-old employee at Meta, Austin Wells, bought an apartment on the MV Narrative cruise, which boasts 20 dining restaurant and bar options, a microbrewery, a library with 10,000 books, a movie theater, a gym, an art studio, three pools, and even an on-board doctor. 

Don’t worry because he’s still going to be able to pay the dues as he works in Meta’s augmented and virtual reality division remotely, so this situation is ideal for him. 

His studio apartment onboard MV Narrative cost him $300,000 for a 12-year lease, which is a whole lot cheaper than those worth $1 million and even as high as a whopping $8 million.

Residential cruise

A house on a cruise? Sounds weird, as traveling on a cruise ends shortly, right? However, MV Narrative is actually a residential cruise, meant for the lifestyle Wells is looking for. 

“The luxury of a superyacht featuring a helipad and a marina with personal watercraft. Designed for living aboard and environmental sustainability,” the cruise’s official website said. 

The cruise, which will sail in 2025, is set to stop in Venice, Rome, Naples, Slovenia, Greece, Croatia, and Turkey.
