My original postings for 2005 are now obsolete. This is current and fixed.
Am going Transatlantic, April 15-May 1, 2006, on the Noordam (the new one) ("big band" cruise) NYC-Rome.
Also May 4 - May 16, 2006, Rome-Venice on the Grand Princess.
Cost on either (inside) around $2,100. My guess is that if I share the cost will be about the same (each) unless we decide to go to an outside room, but it would be a worthwhile in experimenting with cruisemates experience.
If you are interested we can share the relevant info about ourselves and the cruise(s)
