hello Mercedes, I have just joined this cruisemate site and read new posts every day. Looking to cruise soon, open to any port. I am 62, female, newly retired. Live outside of Seattle. I am married but husband is still working and does not mind me being gone. We have been on 4 cruises in the last 20 years. Not alot, but enough that I know I like that kind of vacation. Hope to hear back from you.
