I, too would love to have a roommate to share costs. I am booked on Silhouette from Rome to FLL on December 1. Got a stern balcony cabin so no super bargain but I do care about the cabin. I spend a lot of time just reading and relaxing.
I am flying to Iceland on Nov 23 for a 4 night super bargain package deal which includes air ($1074 for RT air, 4 nights hotel and 2 tours). I am hoping to see the Northern Lights, then will fly to Rome on Nov. 28.
I, too, am 64, recently lost my husband. Need to be away from home during a lot of the holiday hub bub. Figure it will be just too hard with everyone planning things and no one to plan them with.
