My son offered to send me on a cruise for my 50th birthday, but he can't afford the full single-person price. I have never cruised before (never really vacationed before), but I would love to go to Alaska. There is a 7-day cruise leaving from and returning to Seattle in May that I was looking at. Summer is okay, too, but the sooner the better. (I really need a break.) I live in Seattle so Seattle departure is important to me. I don't particularly care whether roomie is m or f, but comparable to my age and non-smoker essential. I am not looking for thrills or adventure, just rest, relaxation and beautiful views. Any takers?
