I am also looking for a cruise mate for longer cruises. I am a 63 year young straight SWF who just retired and am itching to see the world. I have cruised before--to Africa, Austrailia, Mexico, and the Caribbian, but haven't seen the greater part of this world yet. My goal is to cruise in order to identify areas that I might like to go back to and spend a little more time there. I would be interested in going on a short cruise with you, to see if we might be compatible for a longer journey. Please contact me and let me know if this might be possible.
