Hello again! I'm just back from my third cruise with a Cruisemates cabin-sharer, this time a transatlantic on Princess from Ft. Lauderdale to Southhampton. Again, I'd have to call it a success.
This time my partner shared more of my interests than the previous ones had; we played trivia and attended a number of shipboard entertainments together. She did like to watch TV in bed, but I'm the kind who can sleep through anything. And then she usually slept late in the morning, but that just meant that we never had any bathroom conflict. The only real problem was that this was her first transatlantic, and she decided that the six days from Florida to Ponta Delgada was too many away from land, so I'll have to find someone else to do a TA westbound in the fall.
