Read your message, and might be able to help you out! I went on Carnival twice in 1984 & 1985--not my cruise line! Heard that Holand America (HAL) was great and have sailed with them 20 times.
Alaska is a HOT market right now, so if interested, let me know? You could fly to Seattle on Southwest, and Shuttle to Vancouver!
Prices on HAL run from $499 + port charges, and taxes. I know the pain of Single Supplements.
I am a SWM, 63, College Graduate, career was in the Printing Industry, did some time in the Air Force as an Aircraft Maintenance Officer. I assume your looking for someone to NOT get hit with that Single Supplemet! Same with me! Just came back from a 12 day Land Tour of Anchorage and Juneau, I put together myself!
Let me know?
