Angelyn and Richard Burk are spending their golden years on cruise ships

A MARTINEZ, HOST:

Angelyn worked as an accountant. And she figured out it'd be cheaper to spend their golden years on cruise ships. The couple's been out at sea for a year now. And they say they can afford this new lifestyle for less than a hundred bucks a day. You know, I got to say, I really like this approach to retirement. They literally have it on cruise control.
