Default [b]CABIN MATE: WANTED...03/06/07 - 03/26/07[/b]

To Whom It May Concern;

Normally I am open to the duration of a cruise, in this particular instance however I will have a spring break… 03/06/2007 – 03/26/2007 and would like to book a cruise for that period if a cabin mate is available. I signed-up for a couple of classes at the local college; watercolors and digital graphics with an emphasis on advanced Photoshop and Illustrator.

I have posted a few requests; one is a cruise leaving on Holland America's Zaandam from San Diego on the March 6th for a 15 day cruise to Hawaii, returning to San Diego on the 21st ($1456), another is aboard the Island Princess 15 days from Los Angeles, March 12-27 ($1306). If these cruises are of interest to you please contact me at your earliest convenience.

Again, to reiterate, presently I am open to any cruise that will provide a hot and sunny climate.

I hope to hear from you concerning any cruise you may have in mind and perhaps we can iron out the details and enjoy a wonderful cruise to stave off the Winter Blues!

I will answer any appropriate questions you may have and I thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to meeting nice people and my wish is to make friends with enough cabin mates to allow for several cruises each year.


I am retired, 59 Years Young, Straight Male and live in Connecticut. I enjoy cruises and am almost always ready on a days notice.

I am looking for male or female cabin mates to meet the double occupancy criteria as a single traveler.

I am friendly, considerate, quiet, respectful, clean, easy on the eyes, honest and have no underlying intentions other then a cabin mate.

I am equally comfortable and content with polite pleasantries or friendly conversation, the cabin mates’ choice. I do not smoke or do drugs, rarely drink; perhaps a glass of wine with dinner and the occasional beer is the exception.

I am rarely in the cabin... a normal routine is to leave the cabin in the morning, returning for dinner and then returning again to sleep, approximately 1-1½ hours after the main show of the evening. Not much of a gambler either.

My forte is lounging by and in the pool or hot tub, perhaps joining in a deck game or water volleyball, and a little reading. I enjoy the sun and work on a tan as much as possible. I also enjoy photography and sketching for watercolor when I get back home.

Opportunities to learn about other cultures, people and visiting the wonderful sights are always a favorite depending on location. There are times I prefer not to go ashore, I stay aboard usually by the pool.

Wishing you health and prosperity and may all your wishes bring you happiness.

Default Hi Joseph

I finally decided to bite the bullet and check into single cruising which is how I stumbled across your ad. What you write is pretty much exactly what I would post for myself (although I probably can't afford to go as often as you).

I'm a 41 yr old (young) divorced female. I'm not hard on the eyes (as you put it) but not a fox, although I'm more than happy with myself. I love travelling but seldom can find anyone to do it with. I recently (Feb) took my first cruise on the Norwegian Dawn from NY to the Carribean. Loved it and would like to do more. Unfortunately, most of my friends can't afford either the time or money to go when I would like to. Even if they do go, they're all married so I'm still in the situation of needing a cabin mate for myself to cut costs. Thinking I'd throw my name your way and perhaps it would work out at some point.

I'd also like to see more of Europe and would like someone to share the cost of hotels. Interested? ....London, Paris, Venice, Rome, etc

Since I just got back from NY and have a trip to Vegas booked in April, I probably won't be ready for anything until the fall.

My email is minerm36@hotmail.com and for the record, I live in Alberta, Canada.

More on me: non-smoker, non-drinker (other than a glass of wine with dinner), no drugs; I can sleep through anything if I'm tired enough; I usually like to come back to my room very late and then sleep in when on holidays; easy-going; enjoy people but also enjoy being a loner and need my space for a while each day; prefer that the room is organized/non-messy; I'm told I sometimes snore but very softly (yikes); have a great sense of humor but understand the term "inappropriate"; tend to be the quiet/shy one in the bunch but love the fun going on around me.

Write me if you're game.
