First while HAL may have a slightly older crowd, that has outlasted me on every HAL cruise I have taken. I travel HAL because 1) it's Single Share option and 2) my repeat cruiser discount. Besides, I just like it.
When I travel by myself, I book a single share, but try to find a roomie up until I leave. I don't mind sharing with someone I don not know. I figured that with some of the roommates I had in college or shared an appt with for a term or year, I can put up with almost ANYONE for 7-14 days. And if HAL doesn't find you a roomie, you get the cabin by yourself for the double prince. That has happened to me each time.
I will be traveling on the HAL 10-day Eastfarer on Dec 6, 2004, so if anyone wants to share, contact me. I don't care gender, preference or anything else because it will be strictly platonic.
I am a never married single, who isn't a big partier or drinker (but I must have a few fru-fru drinks with an umbrella)
