Your comments are right on concerning cruisemates and prequalifying them. The preparation of a list of qualities is a good ideabut unfortunately not all people are honest. I also think that lists can be limited in effectiveness at getting the truth. Commiting to a cruise with a cruisemate is like getting married; it is an act of faith and hope. However, instead of a lifetime you are making a commitment of only a week or two or whatever the cruise length is. This can be like Hell though if you have the wrong cruisemate.
