I am 61-year-old straight woman seeking a female companion for a Panama Canal cruise so I can avoid the single supplement. Easy-going non-smoker. This would be my first cruise. I've taken several trips where I've been matched with other women to save on the supplement and haven't had any problems. My timing for the cruise would be February-March 2009. I've looked at a VTG singles cruise in April but I'd rather go when the weather is cold and snowy here.
