I'd love to do a cruise during the Thanksgiving holiday from either LA or SD. Choices are a HAL ship, Carnival's Elation, or the new Star Princess. I got some quotes from buycruises.com--the cheap seats (an inside cabin) for a HAL ship and the Star would go for about 900 pp including port charges. Carnival's Elation was less.
I'm pretty flexible about the ship. I figure all have their pluses and minuses. I'm 50, a non smoker, and pretty easygoing. I'm looking for a female roomie. If your interested, please email me so we can chat.
