Hi, I need a cruise buddy also... have had one in the past but she is not always available when I am. I am looking at Oasis of the Sea Dec 1st and Eurodam Dec 5th... both out of Ft. Lauderale.... both new ships that I have not been on. I am a retired widow, young in spirit... and very independent. non smoker, drink socially, love to go snorkeling and on interesting excursions. The cruise you mentioned sounds great... but I am just coming back home from being in Arizona around that time and have a friend from Australia coming to visit for a few days. But if you want to keep in touch, maybe we can do a cruise to see if we are suited.
