Interested on the 27 July 2013 crossing if you don't mind travelling with a 59-year old gentleman, and I stress the word gentleman. I have done this crossing 12 times travelling solo and I am tired of paying the double fare each time when I could use the extra money to spend while in Europe. I understand that this is strictly a cost-sharing arrangement and I am not looking for anything else. As an alternative would you be interested in the 17-day crossing from Boston to Amsterdam on 13 July on HAL's Veerdam? This cruise will hit some interesting out of the way places that I've always wanted to see, like Newfoundland, Greenland, Iceland, the Svalbard Islands, and Norway. The cost is of course higher than the 7-day crossing on the QM2 but I think it's worth it for what you get.
