Hey, Timothy I finally figured out out to answer u. Yes, I was on the 42-day cruise from Fort Lauderdale. I did not attended any singles events because I was busy playing poker at those times or doing other stuff. I was on a tour whenever there was a tour. This was my first cruise that a friend talked me into going. I will only go on the verandah or better cabins. I adorn the seri to those venues offer. I sat for hours, day or nite, just listening or watching when daylight, the sounds of the sea. I want to take this same cruise later this year. Or u interested. I am single, white, straight, female and old enough to know better but too young to resist. My grandfather was a farmer in Georgia aka known as a sharecropper with his own tools. I prefer the longer cruises because it's so much trouble to prepare to live home when I go somewhere. I have a home and pet sitter and other stuff to attend to. Let me hear. Where were u hiding on this ship?
