Some people have had good experiences and some have had nightmare experiences with roommate shares. Me, personally, there is no way on earth I would go down that road. Last time I had a roommate was college and that was traumatic enough. I booked a solo balcony on the Pride and it will be well worth the extra money for the single supplement. I agree with what someone said above.... single roommate matches seem to work better with some of the guys ... but you might want to strongly consider how much you are willing to tolerate and if a nightmare roommate could ruin your trip.
