Default Cruisemate Wanted Conquest Dec. 22-29 + New Orleans 4 Days

Dear Traveler,

Could I possibly interest you in the following???

My female travelmate canceled. Because she wanted to go via New
Orleans and spend a few days there, I booked a short 7-day X-mas
Cruise followed by 4 days in New Orleans. The entire trip is on my
credit card.. Iím booked on

1. Carnival Conquest, leaving New Orleans on Dec. 22
> Montego Bay > George Town > Cozumel > New Orleans Dec. 29,
$797/person in cheapest class based on double occupancy, which means
Iíve now paid double that amount because I paid for my friend in advance. There are two beds in the cabin and it can be easily upgraded to something fancier. Iíd prefer a female cabin mate but would consider a male (as long as we both keep our pyjamas on.)

2. New Orleans Dec. 29 - Jan. 2: I reserved a room at the St. Vincent House, nothing fancy, not exactly central but quite affordable (1507 Magazine St., Phone 504-566-1515),($69 each room and day for the first two nights, then $99 for the other two nights per room and day -- otherwise prices in New Orleans, during New Year's and the Sugar Bowl, are sky-high , ($250-300 is not unusual). This means spending New Year's eve in New Orleans, possibly taking a trip on a Mississippi boat (if still available, not yet booked.)
If you're at all interested, I suggest to contact me direct;
Voice 816-331-1863
Fax 816-331-6353
e-mail 74170.2570@compuserve.com (that's correct, it's
an ancient classical compuserve address but if you have
difficulties, you can e-mail through my office at
A bit of info about myself:
I am out- and easygoing fun-loving yet romantic European (in US more than 3 decades), in good health, energetic, flexible, widowed, have a university degree, am multilingual, an optimist and idealist by nature, sometimes a bit non-conventional. I have many interests, I like to travel (water, mountains, quaint villages and big cities), love music (classical, folk, easy listening but not that ear-splitting atonal supercontemporary stuff that might better be termed "noise"), dancing, theater, writing, eating in or out. I am 67 years old (am usually taken for younger), 5'4", weigh a little too much (sometimes more, sometimes less.) My eyes are blue/green depending on the color of the sky, my hair is light brown. I am attractive but not extraordinary; I'm told that I am definitely
never boring. I SMOKE, am a social almost nothing drinker. I dress up or down. I live in the Kansas City, Missouri, area. Want to come along on the cruise and share the fun and the cost of the cabin & room in New Orleans (room includes breakfast)?

A word of warning. With the cruise so close, even if you have to happen to find a replacement cabinmate, Carnival may not allow a simple change.
I'd check with Carnival before doing anything, or you may get in even further.

Sure am sorry about you getting stuck with a bill like that. Good luck finding somebody and that Carnival will agree to name change. Auguste What a christmas present

Just an idea but if you don't find anoyone can you take a friend for free or a family member? Maybe next time after they are hooked on cruising they would return the favor... Have fun! Debbie
