Thanks for your reply. Actually, I haven't made any reservations yet. I keep waiting for someone like you to reply. You certainly sound like the person I would enjoy going on a cruise with. I'm also an easy going layed back type of guy. If you can believe this, I found these cruise prices on Costco Travel. For obvious reasons, the later into the winter cruise season, the more the prices increase. Living in Southern Calif, you won't incurr any travel expense to the departure city of Los Angeles. That's great. I would love to hear back from you. I'm leaving on Friday on a week long vacation to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. I look forward to your reply. Thanks again for your reply Roy.
