I' also in Michigan, a bit more south - 1 1/2 to airport. I'm a 61 retired professional and Mother of four, now adult, children. I also enjoy cruising but can not always find another friend interested in the same. I used to own a horse farm and share your love arbians but no longer ride. I am currently crusing in Feb - Pamana. It started out with three; one person just cancelled and the other is currently ill. I may be traveling alone to Pamana - it is a 12 day canal cruise. I cruise every winter; need a little sun and thaw!
