I understand your concern. I joined cruisemates to try to find a cabinmate and the only responses I received were from people overseas ( who are probably legit lovely people) but since this is my first time using this forum I felt too uneasy. I would like to meet the person I'm going to share a sardine can with lol. So I'm going alone until I can talk to more folks who have had success finding cabinmates this way. And your right about the "how do we pay for this" But all that aside, I've gotten alot of great information from you guys so thank you for that.
