Hi, Patty. I received a note on cruisemates that was addressed "Hi Fred" so I don't know if you were replying to my request for a roommate or Fred's for his cruise. Anyway, if you were responding to me...I have a roommate for my Maasdam cruise (departing July 25th) and I will probably not be going on the Australia/New zealand cruise as much as I would like to. That one leaves September 26th. If I did that one I would be gone from home too much time so I decided I had probably better not go on that one. Also, the price was too high but the first half of it has come down in price and maybe the second half will too.
