The trip you have planned sounds great. I'm in the same age bracket as you. I have cruised a lot in the past - unfortunately my friend who I travelled with for over fifteen years passed away last year. It is rather difficult to find an adventurous 'senior' don't you hate that term? I do from your profile you sound like me young at heart and want to see as much of the world as you can. I would like to hear from you and see if we can arrange anothe trip before May to get to know each other. I still work part time but can usually get away at short notice. I love to have someone to share all the exciting ports with - but I am sensetive to having space to do your own thing. One of my favourite cruises is a repositioning cruise. Crossing the Atlantic to Europe with time at sea to relax and enjoy reading and if the weather is good swimming.
I'd love to hear from you - Do you live in D.C? or the State?
Best regards, Anne
