Hi-I'm a retired school teacher who wants to cruise April 1, 2007 on HAL transatlantic either the Fort Lauderdale, Florida Civitavecchia (Rome) or the Tampa Bay, Venice. I prefer a stateroom with an unobstructed view and would like to have a cabinmate for the reduced fare and for the "HO, boy, did you see that" part of sharing the experience. I know that I'm easy to get along with, (have shared my house for 25 years with a variety of roomers), am happy to be part of the gang or can entertain myself. The published fares for the above are $1879 for the Ft. Lauderdate/Civitavecchia or $2009 for the Tampa Bay/Venice. No upgrades/$50 onboard credit. Let me know if this appeals to you.
