I have recently retired and discovered that I like going on cruises.
So far, I have found traveling partners amongst local friends.
There are a couple of cruises at the end of the year that are really interesting and inexpensive, so I am looking for someone else who is interested in going.
If you're interested, read on.
There are two cruises and I'm thinking of doing both, one after the other.

The idea here is to cruise at a reasonable price (as illustrated by the prices of the two above cruises) and to do that, one needs a traveling partner, what with the prices being based on double occupancy.
I'm not looking for a girlfriend, a boyfriend, or anything else but what I describe, a traveling partner.
I'm easy going, quiet and respectful and would expect the same from partner.
We don't have to love each other.
Getting along in a respectful fashion would make it a good deal for both parties involved.
I'm an open book, so anyone who wants more info, is welcome to contact me.
I'm also open to other cruises.
The biggest inconvenience and cost can be getting to points of departure and getting back home from the point of arrival.
The flight to Europe, I can get pretty cheap from where I live, the Dominican Republic.
The flight back from Rio is not so easy, and so far am looking at close to 1K US. but that's of no consequence to anyone but myself.
If I know I have a traveling partner for either or both mentioned cruises, then I will work that much harder at getting my other arrangements worked out.
Feel free to ask questions or suggest other cruises, other than cold weather cruises.
