Default CCL Freedom, Feb 25, 8 day, $500, female preferred

See my other posts to get a better idea about me.

Would offer half the cabin for $500, as it's "my" idea/time/etc

In the past, I've halved the pre cruise hotel, car, but do have a place to stay in FLL so either way would be fine w/ me.

We can decide whether we want to be together at : dinner, breakfast, excursions, I'm very flexible as I tend to meet and interact w/ many on the ship.

Stress that this is NOT a 8 day date, for either of us.
I do prefer a female cabinmate but not dead set on it.

I tend to do many of the activities, trivia, games, and dance classes. I'm a scuba diver so will likely have 1 or 2 ports that I dive in.
Piano bar is a favorite of mine, and I personally know many of the entertainers, as is dancing.
Non smoker, social drinker
Anytime dining is my dinner preference.
Platinum, so cabinmate gets the perks also.
References available. I'm very social, rarely in a foul mood, quite active, and if I say so myself (which I'm about to) very entertaining and witty.
I'm very googleable as well as facebook.com/buggystuff
On a back to back in Jan, want to do one more cruise during the harsh winter months.

The price is actually $529 pp but I'm subsidizing since it's my idea/time/etc

It's not a silly idea. I just did the same. Booked solo, but a friend wanted to go, gave a reduced price and it still offset the bottom line cost.

1st booked 5 nighter on Ecstasy from Canaveral, that was to be my solo. Booked a 7 night on Carnival Liberty with my shipmate as a share. (2 days after) She decided as long as she was coming in from Georgia, she might as well do both.
How's it going finding a share? If I went, everyone would think you are my son

So that means 445 facebook cruisers, and none can go?

Why a Feb cruise?

It's one of my fave ships, a time I can go, and an Itenerary that I really like. Not to mention, FLL works best for me.

Oh, and I got upgraded to Lido deck, woo hoo!

Default Lido Upgrade

Was upgraded to Lido deck, and often get upgraded to a better room.

If I don't find a cabin share, I may take the same date on the Epic

I actually had dinner with lynn / msld1950 a few months ago to talk about cruising since we live within 40 miles. We had a good chat but never decided to go anywhere together.

Brad, You did not mention between 5'4"-5'7", 115 lbs-120 lbs. between 34-42 years old, green eyes preferred, you will be OK if r a true blue.
Red heads may get an additional SBC, must be able to party and do shots without touching the shot glass.
C or D report cards treated with special care.
If you can hold a tune at the piano bar, you get free laundry

Default Price drop

$300 + port charge/tax (around $80 I think?)

37.50 a day? If someone offered me the same deal, I'd take a bus if I had to to get there. OK, well, a bus might be a little extreme, but I'd still get there.

I hope you find someone, really. I'd like to go (even if it doesn't include Aruba), but currently taking care of a friend with severe medical issues.

I'm taking care of a friend with severe mental issues, but luckily, I can do that remotely <g>
I'm wondering if this will be a fuddy duddy cruise, the roll call on cruise critic is pretty lame also, as is the facebook page

Oh well, I'm sure "I" will have a blast anyway. I most often meet folks on board that have never heard of either cruise critic or cruisemates.
