4:54 am
to the family at home? lee: oh i talk to them every day. i'll talk to them twice a day if it means i don't have to be there. aboard the crystal serenity, she's known simply as "mama lee." she's been living there for the past 8 years. lee: think about it. i don't have to clean house. i don't have to shop, i don't have to cook, i don't have to do anything. i do what i want, when i want, if i want. she and her late husband mason took nearly 100 cruises together before he died in 1997.

(00;58;04) peter: at your age, there a lot of people who would say, well i'm going to go a retirement place... lee: oh, no, not me. why do that? (00;58;22) i have everything here i would have at home, only at home i would be alone. (00;58;30) i'm now a great- grandmother. // my grandchildren are having children. // but i don't want to be there every minute for that. i love babies, but they grow up (laughs) i don't need it anymore. 240 cruises around the world and visited hundreds of ports. but where the ship is going? irrelevant. for mama lee, these days, the ship is the destination. lee: (01;03;38) everything is been there done that. if i've been there and done that i don't go off the ship. //and i love it when everybody goes touring. i got the whole ship to myself with all the help. // (01;03;50) peter: you've got this figured out. lee: oh, absolutely. (01;04;03) peter: and you don't really get off the ship anymore? lee: what for?

(cover with dancing) 01;11;46;21 peter: do you ever sit back and think about what your life would be like if you weren't on the ship? lee: very boring. // lee: you can't beat it. i think i live a fairy tale existence. it's not a real life. i realize that. not everybody does this. but a lot of people could. lee: that's as good as it gets. rick: i still think i do the same dance step with every dance. lee: yeah, you do, but that's ok. rick: thanks darling. (kiss) tag ((brian loftus)) >> and if you're wondering how much it costs to cruise the world, the estimate is one hundred and eighty thousand dollars a year.
