Lee Wachtstetter used to go on cruises with her husband and when he died, she promised to keep up with the tradition. The 86-year-old Florida widow shells out $164,000 a year to live on a luxury cruise ship.
Wachtstetter spent the last seven years aboard Crystal Serenity and is known as "Mama Lee" on the ship. She calls the Serenity a "stress-free, fairy-tale life" and has visited more than 100 countries.
"My husband introduced me to cruising. Mason was a banker and real estate appraiser and taught me to love cruising. During our 50-year marriage we did 89 cruises. I´ve done nearly a hundred more and 15 world cruises," she explained.
