I am hoping to find a cruise mate for a TRANSATLANTIC OR EUROPEAN Cruise this summer. I would like to cruise preferably between June, July and August of this year, but will consider anytime 2007/2008. I have never cruised EUROPE before so any and all information/recommendations would be appreciated.

I have been successful in finding several cruise mates and the cruises were very nice with no problems at all.

I recently returned from a Panama Canal cruise with a very nice young lady from California, we respected each others space and honored the parameters set prior to the cruise and all went very smooth.

I have also just returned from 2 cruises back to back aboard RCCL Freedom of the Seas cruising the Caribbean in March with a gentleman from California.

I am looking forward to a cruise to smaller Islands aboard a Windjammer sailing vessel in May with a nice lady from Massachusetts that I am also looking forward to.

I hope to hear from anyone concerning any cruise you may have in mind and perhaps we can iron out the details and enjoy a wonderful cruise this summer before they are sold out.

You can write me direct at

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. No strings attached!

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.

Hi -

I'm also a vet - retired Zoomie - and proud of my second place medals from the SEA wargames . :-? Check out my post. If you can fit this trip into your globe trotting itinerary I'm sure we'd have lots of memories to share over a brew or two.

Cheers -
