My 2 Dream Cruises - Anyone want to share an inside cabin
I have scoured the cruise sites for a couple years now and finally found the 2 dream cruises I want to take. I am a straight single man, 59, quiet, studious type, don't drink or smoke, and have a tendency to sleep & nap outside on the deck in one of the comfortable lounges most nights. I have no family left alive, so have absolutely no one to go with me anymore on cruises. I am a bit disabled with hip and knee replacements, so I don't move real fast and keep my walking to somewhat of a minimum. I am open to either a male or female roommate who is a bit independant like myself. I have a tendency to stay to myself alot, mainly because I am very sensitive to noise and loud social situations. I do like to socialize a bit, but mostly prefer 1 on 1 situations rather than crowds. I like to spend my free cruise time reading and studying about the wonderful places we are in route to.

Well now, the good part.

1) On Nov. 10 this year Holland America has a 26 day cruise out of Florida which combines the Carribean, Panama Canal, & So. America, with opportunity to visit the Galapogos. Three places I want to see in one cruise at a great price.

2) On Nov 18, 2009, a Princess cruise leaving Rome for 33 days ending in Florida after visiting Greece, Turkey, Egypt (pyramids), Italy (Florence, my favorite), France, Spain, Morroco, Brazil, amongst others. Another great price I found.

These 2 cruises cover so many of the places I haven't seen yet that after them Alaska, Canada/New England, and Hawaii will be about all I have left to see. A return to New Zealand would be nice 1 day, but first want to go to the places I have yet to see.

I am new here, so do not know the rules about posting sites or prices, so leave me a message if interested. I have a profile done but can't figure out the avatar or pic restrictions yet. I believe my email address should be on there.

I'm interested in the Nov. 10 cruise, what's the price? I saw a quote on VTG for the first half of the cruise for $1200. There's a similar cruise leaving Jan 10 2009 but this one ends in San Diego.

I'm 62 yo retired straight male. Been on over 50 cruises.

VTG is what I use too....check it out there as Fastdeal 11147.

I believe my personal info is in my profile. If not I will have to give it another try. My email is

If you really like this one, lets communicate quickly cause I don't want to miss this one.

The Jan 10th one is more money and I have already seen the west coast of Mexico and San Diego several times, so not that interested in that one.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 01:55 AM.
