Having a great time reading all the posts from SWF looking for a cruisemate and or a group booking. I am recently early retired and never used a cruise mate site before. I have what I am sure is all the normal reservations about traveling with a stranger for the first time, but by travel buddies are all still in the corporate grind and I want to travel more now that I have the time. I am mid-50's SWF living in the Atlanta area. I would be interested in considering any cruise anyone is planning. I have only cruised Alaska and carribean, but am hoping to go to the British isles, panama, hawaii/tahiti and perhaps south america.
