Well, am new to all this, including the cruising buzz, but would like to find a room mate to go on a cruise Australia / New Zealand over the Xmas 2013 period. Am a first time cruiser, but have traveled a lot. Looking for someone to share a twin balcony cabin cost. I am a female, happy single, 55 yrs and very independent so will not be in your pocket. And yes have bad habits, I do like an occasional smoke ( never inside ) and am a social drinker. Apart from that easy going and am very tidy. I have not booked this cruise yet as wanted to find out if I can lower the cost by sharing, otherwise I need to pay for single rate.
