Senior Cabinmate
Am a recent widower ..62 yrs old straight WM grandfather
love to have fun but also enjoy mello kickbacks.
I am very respectful of others.
I am an easy going non-smoker who enjoys a drink or two.

Kids are grown but keep after me to get on with my life.
I know they are right, but the thought of single travel leaves me
a little cool but then, who wants to stay at home forever?

Opening a search for a non smoking roomie someone to share some expenses.
Hopefully we can be compatable but this not an absolute requirement.
I would prefer a male companion but female would be OK.
I think once we get on board we can go our separate ways.

I'm open for any distination but would prefer 9+ days.
I'm currently looking at exotic western carib for the winter but lets talk.

Re: Senior Cabinmate
So Mystro, are you an a Mariner who sailed the Rotterdam V? Interested in sailing Rotterdam VI?

mystro July 10th, 2008 12:24 PM

Ahh the grand-dame SS Rotterdam V, flagship extraordinaire in the days when ships were ships not floating super malls. She was very close to one to the greatest ships ever and truely built for around-the-world cruising.

I'll PM Ya..thanks for reminding me of her. :)

Divemaster July 10th, 2008 04:41 PM

Yeah, I took it you also had the priviledge to sail her. Still my favorite ship after 20 years at sea. 8)

I've had several people who responded via Private Messages which I've sent messages too but only 2 have followed-up..I suspect some are not checking their PM's.

I'll repost if I don't find a match so anyone interested enough to send a PM please also include contact info. thanks

And then another cruise in 2010:

Unprecedented itinerary on a 670-passenger ship!

Hello, I am a straight male, 74, cruised 30 times, non smoker, like wine with meal, easy going. Would be interested in 9-14 day cruise in March/April 2009 in Caribbean. Would enjoy hearing from you. I go out on the Solstice Feb 1st. John

I am an experienced cruiser, am singlefemale 61. Always need a ship mate, male or female. Thinking of the future possibly fall 2009 or winter 2010. Already have a trip planned this year with my daughter.
My preference is the caribbean or pacific, but am open to other locations as long as it is warm, hot summery weather. Perhaps you are not interested in waiting that long, but I find it more enjoyable with the build up waiting and the cruise is paid for ahead of time.

Hi There,

How about the Star Princess on December 22, 2008 to South America for 14 days?


dhult15 November 26th, 2008 04:52 PM

Sorry, I've already done South America a couple of times. I'm trying to go to new countries. I will be with my husband for the holidays.
