Feel left out on this one...we've had GREAT table mates up to this point! Some have been a lot older than my husband and I...some younger...but ALL great great fun.
One of the most interesting was an older couple from England. Very, very reserved...at first...but after a couple of meals, we warmed them up. Found out that this very reserved couple were world travelers. They had wonderful adventures in Greece, Africa, etc. They had been married for over 50 years. The husband had a dry sense of humor...and his wife, who was not as reserved, had a sharp wit. They had more energy than my husband and I put together!
On another cruise we had a table for eight...at night we couldn't wait for dinner to see what each of the other couples had done for that day. Since we were all so different, we had chosen different Port excursions...so at dinner we would entertain each other with our adventures!
