I will be lecturing on this cruise and I am seeking a cruise share partner who would like to cruise on this cruise at a discount rate. You would have no working responsibilities on the cruise.
I am a retired University Professor who has completed almost 3 years of delivering lectures on cruise ships. I had the opportunity to lecture on 10 different cruise ships during that time with cruises all over the world lasting for 9 to 32 days duration.
I am aged 69 and an experienced cruiser, with over 40 lifetime cruises, going on 5 to 6 cruises a year now that I am retired. I can go on a cruise at a moments notice and don't mind repeating past destinations. It is the cruise experience that I enjoy with the good food, service, dancing, entertainment and meeting people. I am well travelled having visited every continent and most countries. My interests include cruising, travel, dancing, cooking, gardening and wine making.
OMG! I know that I can not afford this cruise even at a hugely discounted rate....lol....I could only dream! What a wonderful lifestyle you have....any chance I could live the cruise vicariously through you???
Do you blog? I am a married woman of 59 who loves to travel, but can't afford to go often or far. The big event of my life was traveling to Italy to visit an e-pal this past spring... I did a Mediterranean cruise at the beginning of the trip and had a wonderful holiday....
Seems our interests are not similar, but that's true of most of my friendships......why not get to know each other?
For your information lecturers are required to pay an agent to get the gig in the first place and we have other travel expences such as air fare and transfers to get to the ship and more costs to produce the elaborate presentations that I deliver. It is not FREE. I don't get paid for my lectures either.
The cruise share is for the same reason everyone else on this site does it. It is to reduce the high cost of singles travel. Not to make money. I only take a cruise share partner with me if the fit is right. If I can't find someone compatable I cruise alone.
