Mike, I agree with you. A lot of people don't like paying extra to avoid sharing a cabin with a total stranger. However, on the organized singles cruises, where you would be paired up with someone as to age and smoking preferences, you actually have time to get to know them before the cruise through e-mail.
There are also other ways to meet your roomie before the cruise. If you go to Cruisemates' home page you will see my article on J.U.G.S. (Just Us Girls) which tells how women are getting around the singles supplement. Maybe you guys should do something similar.
