Default Finding a Fishing Buddy

We are traveling on Golden Princess 2/2/2 - 2/9/2 with 3 boys (14, 12, 11) and one girl (13). We've taken them on a cruise during school time before and they enjoyed it so much that this 2nd cruise was their #1 vacation choice. I'm not worried about there being other kids on the cruise, but would like to know in advance if possible. Any ideas? More importantly - any tips on how we might be able to find another Dad (or Mom) and kid (kids) who might like to share a charter fishing boat before we go. I've contacted a charter fishing organization via email out of St. Thomas - our stop on the 6th. Only our eldest would like to go deep sea fishing and Dad is willing to take him while the rest of us lay on the beach :-) (Cost for the entire charter for up to 6 people is $550.
Will we be allowed to post a sign with our room number at the excursion desk (kinda like rideshare during college) or will Princess frown on this. Anyone have any creative ideas?

Hi Alex,
I think you have the right idea, its worth a try and in the meantime, its possible you will get a response off these boards too. If you haven't already done so, post on the "meet on board" here and put this fishing info in the post.

We just got off Golden on Sat and my husband and I did the America's Cup regatta and it was fantastic, you may want to also consider that excersion for St. Maarten??? Have a great time on Golden!

You can have your travel agent contact the cruise line to see what other children (ages) will be on your cruise. I've done this before when we've cruised off season with my daughter. However, some lines may not want to be bothered researching the info. But you can at least try!
Princess has a very good youth program -- I'm sure you'll have a great trip!
Smooth sailing,
