Oh my..........

Seriously I don't do as many solos now that the single supplement is so high.

Its really not that hard to find deals, usually RCL or Celebrity are the lines I'll check who'll do low supplement(Carnival, Holland, and Princess are almost always 100%).

My recent checks have been to europe, Royal has some deals I've seen with 10-25% supplement...have to act fast as they change frequently. Biggest problem for europe seems to be high airfare. Priceline shows last year 800-1000 average this year 200 more.

I certainly hope that was a misprint?

They want to keep the riffraff from booking a cruise, unless they bring a friend to watch over them.

For that kind of money, I'll bet I could find a very nice woman to accompany me. (Don't tell the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) about that!)

I hate to point out that with the dancer the single supplement would not apply.
199k for "tips"?

That's kind of the point, save the $199k and use it for other things...

Yep,,the dancer shares a cabin with me. That way she even gets the "Military Rate", and saves $199,674, that we can then spend on "entertainment". (Yep, I'm gettin' deeper in trouble all the time aren't I?)
