I have changed and booked my departure date to November 30, 2003. Same ship "Elation" out of Galveston. Couldnt pass up the deal on this single supplement so I booked solo and am going to try this alone and hope I meet other singles on board. I would be happy to e-mail you about the ship and ports after I return if you are still going in Dec. You may have to excuse any hype as this will be my first cruise and I could be excited!!! Sorry this e-mail arrives so late after my post. I just wasnt sure what direction to go. Anyway, hope you landed a great deal also and look forward to hearing from you.
