Mr Jablin has been living on the Seven Seas Navigator for 13 years.
Sometimes all the life plans that people love to make when they are young don’t come true. And by old age, some do not have the long-awaited stability. This is exactly what happened to an American named Morton Jablin.
The man literally lived the classic “American dream”. He participated in the Second World War, and in peacetime started a family, raised two sons. Jablin also tried his hand at business: he founded a small lace production, and with the proceeds he built a large house for his relatives.
However, it did not work out to live happily ever after with his wife and sons. In 2007, Morton’s wife died, and the grown children dispersed to different states. Then Mr. Jablin decided on cardinal changes in his life.
The man did not want to go to a nursing home or a boarding school, so he took a non-standard step for older Americans. He decided that he wanted to spend the finale of his life surrounded by young people, at the epicenter of events. So, Morton invested all his savings and financial assets in buying a ticket.
Tickets for a real cruise ship! Mr Jablin has been living on the Seven Seas Navigator for 13 years. The man is 94 years old, but he is still confident in his decision and is not going to leave the ship. He leaves it only occasionally to cross paths with his sons and their families.
According to the elderly traveler, he has an excellent relationship with the staff – in the kitchen they already know his favorite dishes, in the dining room he was given a personal table. And a doctor can come to his cabin at any moment.
He actively communicates with all sailors and employees who ensure the operation of the liner. The man calls them the second family, and they call him the living mascot of the ship. So the strange life of Morton Jablin can only be envied.
