Oh... thanks for the clarification, Edwin!
I did this once before but I was the one who bought the spot from the person who had already paid for the room. Our deal worked out really well so I thought I would try the same format. I just want to split to the cost of the room and would want $475 or half of the $950 I paid for the room. You (prospective roomie) would pay half of the 475 up-front (so I can trust you) and you can pay me the other half on the ship (so you can trust me!) Hope that cleared things up and is acceptable to a prospective roomie out there. Like I said, this format worked out super well when I shared a cabin with a lady out of Denver!
