Elderly Woman Sells Lauderdale Home for Life of Cruising, Dancing
|To "Mama Lee," it's just a big, floating dance floor full of eligible bachelors.|
A few years ago, as she found she was taking more and more cruises -- and always looking for a dance partners program on board -- she sold her house in Fort Lauderdale and adopted a life at sea. Her personal calling card reads: "Leona Wachstetter. Dancing, cruising, enjoying life.""Mama Lee," as she's known to the crew, lives at sea -- every night doing the foxtrot with a new elderly gentleman. A feature of Crystal Cruises, these dance partners are called "ambassador hosts," and from the description, they sound like high-end, elderly escorts:
carefully screened gentlemen with interests and backgrounds similar to those of our guests. Each distinguished Ambassador Host is cultured, well traveled and an accomplished ballroom dancer.
