He’s turned his back on the coast: Mario Salcedo has been traveling across the ocean on cruise ships for years. How does he finance the expensive lifestyle?
He’s been living at sea for 23 years: Mario Salcedo, a former financier, left his life on land in 1997 and now lives on cruise ships. This is reported by the British magazine “Mirror”. He only returns to his condominium in Miami for two weeks a year. Each time, however, the 70-year-old notices that he has “lost his legs”. He can no longer walk straight.
“Embracing a life on a cruise ship is basically an escape from reality,” tells American Magazine. Meanwhile, only the corona epidemic caught him. He had to return to the ground for 15 months. On the Caribbean island of Aruba, he spent his time diving, swimming, and fishing.

But now he can travel again. This cost him between 60,000 and 70,000 dollars (about 68,500 euros) – money that the former financier earns from his travels managing investment portfolios for private clients. He also lives in cheap cabins and has hired a private agent who books the cheapest trips for him two years in advance. Meanwhile, they have got many perks from their favorite cruise line. He spent more than nine thousand nights on the ships of Royal Caribbean.
Salcedo can no longer imagine life on land. After spending the last years of his life in a “country hospital”? It would be “pure hell” for salcedo.
