I am 35 SWF, looking for a cruise buddy and roommate for a cruise to Alaska. This is my first cruise, so I am open to options. I have been doing some homework and am leaning toward a Royal Caribbean, Radiance of the Seas, RT from Vancouver, June 28 departure.
I am also open to dates in July but can leave no earlier than June 28 due to my work schedule.
I TOO AM A SWF AND LOOKING FOR A CRUISE MATE. I WENT ON ONE IN OCT ON THE CARNIVAL ECSTASY TO MEXICO. IT WAS SHORT. I ALSO BROUGHT MY TEEN SON WHO DRANK THE WHOLE TIME SO IT RUINED MY FIRST TRIP. SO I PLANNED ONE FOR A 5-DAY THIS TIME FROM JUNE 2-6, STOPPING IN CATALINA AND ENSENADA. PERFECT FOR ME, FIVE DAYS. MY COST WAS UNDER $300 AND ONCE MY OLD HIGH SCHOOL BUDDY BACKED OUT AT THE LAST MINUTE, SHE SAID SHE JUST COULD NOT AFFORD IT AND HER CAR PAYMENT (IT HAPPENS) SO I MISSED OUT SINCE THEY RAISED MY COST TO OVER $700. THAT WAS JUST CRAZY TO ME FOR SUCH A CLOSE TRIP AND ONLY 5 DAYS. BUT UNDER $300 WAS GREAT. I AM STUCK WITH THESE R/T SOUTHWEST AIRLINE TX FROM OAKLAND TO L.A. THOUGH AND NOW THEY COULD GO WAY UP. OH WELL, THINGS HAPPEN. THIS CRUISE WAS GREAT AND THE FOOD FANTASTIC. I WENT TO THE CASINO THE LAST NIGHT ONLY. I DO NOT MIND IF OTHERS DRINK BUT I DRINK VERY, VERY LITTLE, JUST A BIT SOCIALLY. USUALLY I AM FOUND AT THE CAPPUCINO BAR DAY AND NIGHT. I THINK YOU WOULD REALLY ENJOY THIS CRUISE. THERE IS SO MUCH TO DO FROM SPAS, TO WORKING OUT, TO DANCING, NIGHTCLUBS, BARS, JOGGING TRAILS IN THE AM, SWIMMING, JUST EVERYTHING. THE PORTS WE STOP AT WOULD BE SO MUCH FUN TOO. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED PLEASE LET ME KNOW AS I CAN'T WAIT TO GO AGAIN. THIS TIME IF I HAVE A CABIN PARTNER I CAN AFFORD IT TOO. DROP ME A LINE. I LIVE 20 MINS FROM SAN FRANCISCO. HOPE YOU WRITE, JODY.................
Might be too late for your cruise to Alaska, but I'll give it a try! I've been on 2 Carnival Cruises and 20 Holland America cruises. Three HAL cruises to Alaska. Just came back from an Alaska Land Tour I put together myself.
If still interested contact me ASAP, and we can discuss crusing to Alaska on HAL?
PS: Alaska is awesome! Can't get enough of it! Cruises are a Teaser for you to come back and your own Land Tour!
Read your message, and might be able to help you out! I went on Carnival twice in 1984 & 1985--not my cruise line! Heard that Holand America (HAL) was great and have sailed with them 20 times.
Alaska is a HOT market right now, so if interested, let me know? You could fly to Seattle on Southwest, and Shuttle to Vancouver!
Prices on HAL run from $499 + port charges, and taxes. I know the pain of Single Supplements.
I am a SWM, 63, College Graduate, career was in the Printing Industry, did some time in the Air Force as an Aircraft Maintenance Officer. I assume your looking for someone to NOT get hit with that Single Supplemet! Same with me! Just came back from a 12 day Land Tour of Anchorage and Juneau, I put together myself!
