Cruise Buddy needed for Mediterranean cruise in April
Who I'm looking for:
I'm looking for someone preferably female, but a male cabin mate is okay. Non-sexual. I don't mind having someone to explore the ports with or if you prefer to go on your own, that is totally fine.

My "must-see" destination is Rome! I also want to see Barcelona and Venice. Athens or a port in France would be nice too.

April 2013 - Sailing dates of Apr. 17th, Apr. 22nd or Apr. 26th.

12 day or 9 day

No preference, however I've cruised with Norwegian and can get bonuses from being a prior passenger. I really like Carnival too.

Why not? For fun, adventure and exploring. I haven't been to Europe yet and need to take the opportunity that I have to travel while I have paid vacation. My boyfriend is unable to take time off from work and my friends are already booked for trips to other regions/countries.

About me:
I'm an outgoing yet laid-back, adventurous, and active woman in her 30s from the Seattle area in Washington State (U.S.). I make travel arrangements as part of my job, so I have spreadsheets and connections for researching vacations/flights/hotels. I don't snore or smoke (smoking doesn't bother me either). I'm not an excessive party person, however I like to enjoy drinks and have fun.

If you're interested, please let me know. I will be booking my flights and cruise before January 31st even if I pay for double occupancy. The most serious person about booking will win the spot in my cabin at a fantastic rate.

Hello there! I like Holland America, they're actually one of my clients here in Seattle. I like Costa too.

I've changed my travel dates a bit because I found some travel buddies that I will travel with to London, Barcelona and Rome. After Rome, I will be backpacking in Italy during the week of April 22nd and I can catch a cruise out of Rome, Florence or Venice. It would be nice to go to Athens, Crete and/or Santorini from there. Thoughts?

Holland America is pretty much my favorite. that sounds like destinations i would like better. i did a cruise out of athens a while ago just a quick 3 day one and it was great!! Ill check the dates and see what they have and make sure i can get away those days, what type of room do you like? personally i prefer one with at least a little private balcony, where you can just go sit down enjoy the view while having a drink or take a nap:)

April 28th has a good priced balcony room on Royal Caribbean it looks like

I'll be up for a 3 or 5 day day cruise. I just booked my flights and I'm due back for my flight in London on May 3rd. Award travel is going fast. My main flight choices got taken, so I had no choice but to book something as close as possible before they're gone.

jeffdai January 24th, 2013 02:33 PM

darn no chance of moving the flight day back by a couple is we did a 7 day?? i found some air for myself that left the wens. after the cruise

jeffdai January 26th, 2013 10:23 PM

if you can change flights a bit, i can do the 7 day, super cheap and it leaves me a couple of days to explore rome
