TransAtlantic 2012 Seeking RoomMate
 
Hello All,
I am SWF Non Smoker looking for someone to pay their half so I can avoid single supplement. I don't have any specific transatlantic planned at this point but have a few in mind. I am easy going try to get up early no party type. I prefer someone who is on somewhat of a schedule but I don't want to be in bed at 8pm. I almost always get off first thing on ports and will be an early riser for port days. I usually do not take ship excursions and instead research and do things on my own. I am hard core when it comes to walking and exploring ports. You don't have to do everything with me but would be nice to have someone to eat dinner with tea times and ports if you can hang. I have been on princess and I prefer a ship with washer and dryer for mid trip laundry. Very practical and Very trustworthy. I expect the same. Please No crazy Thief types. I am not dumb and have been stolen from in the past. I do not take kindly to people who steal and don't want to feel like I have to watch my crap 24 7 I would rather pay for the entire room. If you think you fit this description please pm me. I travel a lot and don't really need someone to travel with but I am thrifty and like to save when and where possible. Hey why not get 2 trips instead of 1 it's only logical in my mind.

Hello! I am Alex 24, looking for a companion to share the cost of a cabin for a transatlantic cruise to Spain (Barcelona or Malaga) on april or may. I found a good deal on 14 april, from Miami, FL, to Barcelona, Spain for $500, with Norwegian Cruise Line. I am quiet, educated, neat, non-smoker and low maintenance.

Hi, I have a friend looking for a roommate on transatlantic
 
We are going on the Grandeur of the Seas, and it is running around $550 for a double room. My friend is looking for someone to room with, and is trying to also avoid the single supplement. She is a fun person, non smoker, and very dependable and trustworthy. The cruise is April 18. Let us know if you are interested, my best email is doriwarner@aol.com .

I, too, would like to travel transatlantic, and am thinking doing a spring and fall voyage (doing so can save on r/t airfare). I've been on three transatlantic cruises and love 'em! Like yourself, I prefer adventureering on my own two feet or using public transport (rather than ship's excursions). I'm easy going, courteous and respectful of personal time and space. Favored lines are Princess, Celebrity, MSC and Royal Carib and Holland-America.

Like you, I'm looking to travel to Europe by cruise ship from the US during the repositioning period that begins in March.

There seem to be several options currently available, prices may come down as the embarkation dates near:

Discount Cruises, Last-Minute Cruises, Short Notice Cruises - Vacations To Go
Discount Cruises, Last-Minute Cruises, Short Notice Cruises - Vacations To Go
Discount Cruises, Last-Minute Cruises, Short Notice Cruises - Vacations To Go
Discount Cruises, Last-Minute Cruises, Short Notice Cruises - Vacations To Go

Would like to find someone to share the double occupancy cabin on one of these cruises or any other like them.

Need roomie for Dec 2012 Transatlantic
 
Hi all,
I'm a straight SWF, non smoker age 51, looking to find a cabinmate to save some money.
I'm booked on Princess on the Dec transatlantic leaving Rome. It is an inside cabin. I'm usually up and about by 7 or 7:30 AM depending on the evening before or what the port holds that day. And I get to bed at around 11PM. I do like to work out so if that bugs you, please don't reply. :D I work out in the fitness area. I'm not a party person only a drink now and then. Just looking for a simple person willing to pay for part of the room.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Jo

Hi Doug, I would just like your opinion on trans Atlantics as you mention you have done 3. What time of year were they and how rough was the sea? I would really like to do one and have my eye on the Carnaval Breeze repositioning cruise towards the end of the year.
The thing is, I get seriously sea sick. I absolutely love cruising and have done quite a few Mexican cruises on both coasts. On those coastal type cruises I am mostly OK with pills and those wrist band things. However I am a bit nervouse of the Atlantic (open sea).
Your opinion would be most appreciated.

Regards
Jay

Hi Travel chick

I found a cabin mate last fall for the TA back to the states. it worked out well. i am easy going person. well traveled and have cruised a lot. So, i know how cruise travel is,

like you I just want to avoid over- paying.

My prefered line is royal caribbean since I am a plus member and get good perks and discounts.

I'd like to take the Liberty or similar ship to Barcelona in April.

Let me know if you want to talk more and I'll start looking at itineraries,


Happy Planning,
Laura

SWF looking for Cruisemate on Transatlantic in Apr. or May 2012
 
SWF looking for a roommate on any repositioning Transatlantic cruise in April or May 2012 from MIA or FLL to any place in Europe. I am a non smoker, don`t like to party, don`t drink much alcohol, don`t do drugs, early riser, very responsible, dependable. Strictly platonic. Looking for a same sex companion. I am fairly independent, but it would be nicer to have somebody to talk to over dinner. I also want to split the cost of having to pay for a double. If we get along well, we might also go on excursions together? I am a first time cruiser, but I think I would prefer to explore a port on my own, with a companion, not organized by the cruise. I am a retired professional, college educated, German, 49 and have lived in the U.S. for 20 years. I am multi -lingual, love to read and write and travel. I love art, museums, monuments, ruins, history and culture. I would prefer somebody mature, no party animal. Somebody who is fairly clean and orderly, just not a clean freak. I am frugal, but not obsessively so. I swim and snorkle, and look forward to meeting an interesting easy going woman.

Cruisetoeurope March 15th, 2012 11:58 AM

hi there.... sounds like maybe we could be a good match...I, too, and multilingual (italian/french/eng) anyway, have taken over a dozen ta crossings...love them...am interested in going anywhere in europe...though my final desitinaiton in Capri...where I spend my summers... so there are a few that actually stop in capri or i can simply finish in roma...and take the train from there to naples. :-) i share you overall qualities and am very considerate, ticy, and poiltely social. I tend to rise early (love my mornings) and then enjoy socializing the ship at night. not a clubby in the wee hours gal..but tend to return to the cabin before midnight...

I like looking at the vacations to go sight for the listings...and then I usually book through either amex or delta (for the points). I am a swf, 51, athletic and healthy, non-smoker...enjoy traveling tremendously1 you cna call if you wish...504-491-9997...thanks! until then...emma

Cruisetoeurope March 15th, 2012 12:10 PM
