86 year-old Lee Wachtstetter has seen the world without even leaving her home.

For almost seven years, Wachtstetter, known as Mama Lee, has been living aboard the 11-year-old Crystal Serenity cruise ship. After her husband’s death, she sold her home in Ft. Lauderdale and moved into the ship, and has now lived there for seven years. She stopped counting how many countries she visited once she reached 100. 

Yet, her lavish, stress-free lifestyle and worldwide visits come with a big price tag. In an interview with APP.com Wachtsetter said she plans to spend $164,000 this year.
