36F Seeking cruisemate for Caribbean EasyCruise March 2007
I am seeking a travel mate for a cruise in the Caribbean in March on a new Cruiseline called EasyCruise. It's not your normal Cruise.
I have been on the ship in the past and much prefer it to the megaships.
I'm flexible on dates and departure ports St. Martin or Antiqua
About the Cruise
Your accommodation is on a room only basis and each cabin has private shower, w.c. and is made up with linen and towels on arrival. Then you decide how much you want to spend either ashore or onboard in the bar, restaurant or shop and on fresh linen whenever you need it.
Basically you pay get a cabin to sleep and pay as you go.
the cabin cost is per room not person. I'm willing to share a room or each get our own cabin. There is a sale going on this week. It's normally about $67 a night. It's $37.50 per night special.
3 nights $112.50 Total for 2
7 nights $262.50 Total for 2

Easy Cruise New Spa Treatments
easyCruise Moves One Step Closer to Being a Normal Cruise Line
When easyCruise (tel. 650/385-0563; www.easycruise.com) started up in 2005, it seemed intent on throwing out everything about the normal cruise experience and starting over: You could board at any port you like, stay aboard as many or few days as you like, and pay only for your cabin upfront (with onboard meals available a la carte). There were no inane activities either, since pretty much the whole thing was designed as a vehicle for getting passengers to various ports. Super-late departures gave you extra time in those ports too.
Much of that is still the case, but an announcement this week just sound so "cruisy" that it makes us worry that easyCruise is getting sucked into the traditional zeitgeist.
So what is this fresh horror? Spa treatments. Beginning February 16, easyCruiseOne will introduce onboard spa services offered in collaboration with Apivita, Greece's leading producer of natural skin-care products.
easyCruise founder Stelios Haji-Ioannou remarked, "The easyCruise concept is designed for independent travelers who seek both and exciting nightlife as well as an adventurous daytime. The introduction of a spa will allow our passengers the opportunity to relax and pamper themselves during their downtime."
But Stelios, I ask you, why not something really different, like, say, onboard zourkhaneh training? Or at least tai chi fan dancing?
The easyCruise spa menu will include facial priced at $20 and $40, massages priced from $10 to $70, manicures at $12 to $20, and pedicures from $17 to $25.
