Hi Carol! Been following everyone on this site for some months now. Tried to find a cruise mate for an Alaska trip but no luck. I have booked another cruise in November and was going to try a thread of my own but saw your note and decided to drop you a note.

I am a WWM 58 years old, have been on 8 cruises with various companies but most with Princess. I have travelled extensively...lived in Indonesia for a number of years and also Singapore and Abu Dhabi. I love to cruise but the single supplement is overwhelming.

I am not looking for romance, actually would be happy if I could get a guy or gal as a room mate. A gal would be nice as I like to dance and it would be nice to have a partner if you were so inclined. Having a meal or two together is also ok or going our own way. I am pretty easy. Don't smoke, consider myself considerate and well behaved.

The cruise I have booked is the Pacific Princess Trans-Atlantic leaving Rome on Nov. 27 Ports of call are:
Nov 28 - Florence/Pisa
Nov 29 - Genoa
Nov 30 - Nice
Dec. 01 - Barcelona
Dec. 02 - At Sea
Dec. 03 - Granada (Motril)
Dec. 04 - Gibraltar
Dec. 05 - Casablanca
Dec. 06 - At Sea
Dec. 07 - Madeira
Dec. 8-12 - At Sea
Dec. 13 - Hamilton
Dec. 14-15 - At Sea
Dec. 16 - Ft Lauderdale.

Total 19 days.

I have an oceanview room booked with the cost for the second person $2,000. Insurance is already paid as are taxes and fees.

In addition, I have already booked the Crown Plaza in Rome (two double beds) Nov 24, 25th and 26th. If interested the room is paid for so there would be nothing more for the room. We could go to the boat together and share the cost of the taxi. I have stayed at this hotel before, there are a couple of nice restaurants close by, and they have a shuttle that goes into town and back again. It was pretty slick.

Let me know if you have any interest.

Many thanks!
