  1. Mario, the cruise guy, has done what all the FIRE people have done – made a conscious choice to optimize his lifestyle to suit him. He seems to have those 3 factors that you identified before to lead a fulfilling life – autonomy, mastery, and community (Im assuming from people he knows on ship). More power to him. I just wish, for his sake, he would lose some weight and stop smoking. There are others doing same, for instance, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dWFKp-bJtk&t=44s

    1. Mario has definitely identified the things he can’t stand doing (chores, laundry, housework, etc.) and eliminated those from his life completely. In that regard, he has done well. I just can’t help but wonder if the relationships he has are fulfilling or not, since he’s always moving from one ship to the next. His story is fascinating nonetheless.
