Looking for senior cruismate
 
I love cruising and went to the Mediterrean last year with a friend, who is unable to go right now. I would like to find a compatible roommate. I am not a couch potato, love the shows (my roommate didn't), playing card games and scrabble and am open to other activities. Am in relatively good health in my 70's. If anyone wants to answer and explore our compatabilities, please do so.

ruthlessboss April 24th, 2011 06:47 PM

I'm just down the road on 192. Some things match, some don't. Soon to be 67, no companion, work, love DisneyWorld, scrabble, shows, eating.
Most cruises have been Carnival as of late, but have done Celebrity and MSC.
Just came off Carnival Dream this month with a roomshare, which turned out well. Not sure all shares turn out that way. I do smoke and know ships are becoming more restrictive, I haven't challenged myself to that environment yet.

joanieg April 24th, 2011 08:05 PM

Are you interested in a particular place to cruise to? I am going to Alaska (RT from Seattle) July 1-8 2011, 7 night. I'm young 60's female who usually travels alone, as most of my friends work full time or just don't go. Any interest? Joanie

evelyn.grosso April 28th, 2011 12:01 AM

Sorry I do not smoke and can't share a room with someone who smokes (asthma).

evelyn.grosso April 28th, 2011 12:05 AM

How much is the cruise...details?

Sistersolo April 30th, 2011 04:36 PM

I don't live near you, but I also love cruising. I'm 70, perfect health, non-smoker. I'm not particularly fond of cards or scrabble or bingo, but I usually do take part in all the games on ships. I've been on Celebrity, Holland America, Norwegian and MSC; and MUCH prefer Holland America. I'm married but my husband does not care for sea days and I've already dragged him to all the places he considered interesting. I've cruised twice by myself, before H-A changed their "single shared" plan so that it's no longer economically advantageous. I'd be interested in anything in June, July or August; and I'm very flexible, whether you would prefer the cheapest cabin or something oceanview.

reneerotta May 3rd, 2011 12:53 AM

Hi Evelyn, Would you be interested in Holland America's "Eurodam", which sails from Barcelona to London, on May 12th? The cost for an outside cabin is less than $1,000.00
I'm 59, educated, SWF - and looking for a cabin mate. Please email me at reneerotta@aol.com if you're interested. I've already booked it, and could add your name as well. Regards,
Renee

Hi Evelyn,

I just returned on Mother's day from Europe and will be returning in October 2011 and will be looking for a cruise mate. I am looking at the new Celebrity Silhouette for back to back cruises departing October 10th from Roma then October 22 from Roma returning to Bayonne, NJ. I am a MWF age 53 and I love all the ships have to offer. I also love scrabble and other games. I do not smoke, drink, or party. I enjoy people and I am a very down to earth person. I live in VA and would like to discuss further if you are interested. You may email me at tv_24@jetbroadband.com. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.

She hasn't even been on the site since April 27, why I don't know. I keep checking because she said she could not/ would not cruise with me as I smoke. Too bad, I live just down the street from her.

Hi! I posted a new thread about cruising with a Mom as a companion. I was hoping to go on a Caribbean cruise, but you might want to read my cruise and see if you might be interested in a companion for your Mom. I am a MWF, non-smoker. Thanks!

Hi I had just posted looking for a roommate to go on a 20 day Holland America cruise - starts in Rome Oct 5th and goes to several stops in Italy, Greece, Croatia, Spain and Monaco. Sounded great. My friend and her husband were going with me which brought the cost down to 1,700 + and airfare. I'm a active 71 year old widow who loves to travel and always has a camera handy. Not a couch potato although never really the life of the party type either. Not afraid of going off by myself but do love to play scrabble. Unfortunately my friend has to have open heart surgery and has been told even after she should not fly or be on a ship away from a major hospital. let me know if you are interested.

I too enjoy cruising. Was looking for a roommate to share the Oceania 30+ day cruise on Dec. 26th leaving Capetown and going up the east coast of Africa. The single supplement is double the price. I live in Florida at Cityplace in West Palm Beach and love scrabble, play mediocre bridge, enjoy a bit of gambling (although Oceania has minimal casino).
Not sure how this website works - this is my first visit.
