Default What would you do if you needed a cruisemate at the last minute?

I was wondering about this situation as the scenario plays out in real life on Sunday June 10, 2012.

I saw the email from a cruisemate saying he needed a last minute cruisemate. A copy of the text of his email follows: VERY last second: RCL Freedom June 10 (this Sunday) Hmmm.. Well, I am unexpectedly single and have a nice Junior Suite booked on the RCL Freedom of the Seas Western Caribbean run for this Sunday.

I saw an email from another cruisemate who inquired about how much the cruise would cost. I thought this was a pretty elementary question which should have been addressed by cruisemate seeking a last minute cruise buddy. I thought to myself that in addition to the cost information I probably would have put in any sweetners that would give somebody an incentive to come on the cruise.

What would you do if you were in the situation where you needed a cruisemate at the last minute?

If we tell if we have any ideas to "sweeten the deal", we'd be hurting ourselves. If anyone thought they could get a better deal by holding out until the last minute, I don't think I'd want to cruise with them, or anyone I don't know very well.
If that became the case, I might offer a local friend some help.
Since I cruise with my sister's group, I'm never totally alone. I've had a cabin by myself twice and still had a wonderful time. My upcoming Jan 2013 cruise will have even more family members on board than usual and also quite a few repeat group cruisers. Guess this alone says something about those "Get Out of the Cold" groups!
