I tend to disagree with you saying that cruises are for old and retired people, you must have never cruised before. i am a 27 year old female, who looks much younger, and i am booked for the adventure of the seas leaving out of peurto rico on oct. 8. i cruise every year and there are lots of young people on board. looking to share my cabin if anyone interested. its for 7 days and its going to aruba all night, curaco, st. thomas and st. martin. my friends are also broke and that wont stop me from going alone, but i would be interested in sharing my cabin.
