Default Never thought I'd ever travel alone but....

I am recently amicably separated from my gorgeous wife/travel partner of 10 years. What does that matter? I guess that I am attempting to justify the fact that I always believed that solo travelers were those individuals who could neither get a date or find a friend with whom to travel. Until, of course, I found myself in this unique situation. For that, I apologize unreservedly to all of you folks of which I believed were "lonely hearts" and souls.
I've traveled the world, mainly Europe, Africa and South America and the Caribbean....including (12) cruises. I'm open to pretty much any Caribbean itinerary which may include a S/W/M (first time I've ever had to type "S/W/M"...seems very strange...I certainly do not expect a S/W/F
(sounds creepy to me when people even ask) or a ravishing 50ish wealthy divorce' to pick up the tab. .
I don't know where this will go from here but I've got all winter to just kick back and watch the offers roll in.

Who knows.....after that description I may find that 50-ish divorce'.
Thank you for your time!

I can no longer edit my original post...after reading it I remember that the "W"
stands for white...My apologies...race certainly is NOT a factor....and "S"
referring to straight....

Al ...as far as I am concerned don't worry about little mistakes. Can't help much but I applaud your positive attitude & wish you the very best of luck.

When were you thinking of going? I am needing a vacation and wanted to do a Caribbean week-long thing, preferably cabin with balcony and would rather share expenses for a cabin than pay the 200% markup for traveling alone. And I'd like to go October or November 2010, or if possible over Thanksgiving or Christmas. I am a divorced female (I do smoke/drink occasionally), looking for platonic only.

Default Celebrity Solstice or Allure of the Seas Apr 17, 2011

Hi Al,
I will be taking one of the above cruises ex Ft Lauderdale and looking for someone to share a cabin with. I'm not at all up on all these letters...mainly because I am married (and have been for 16 years). But i'll be in the US for a conference in April and am going to take this cruise as a solo traveller afterwards (needs to be Solstice or Allure of the Seas Apr 17-24 to fit in with my travel schedule). I have booked a single cabin on Solstice but that sure is an expensive way to travel when you usually pay twin rates!

So without knowing all the letters i'm a straight white Aussie male (SWAM I guess?) 41, ex motorbike rider after 2 accidents last year , golfer, non smoker, moderate drinker, tux wearer, food & wine lover and generally pretty funny myself. (why does this feel like Perfect Match? )

Im not fussy on the cabin type - anything from an inside to a Aqua Class balcony on Solstice and equivalent on Allure is fine - whatever suits your budget.

Anyhow, let me know if you're interested mate

Cheers

Ando
