Default seeking cabin share for 6/29/12 Alaska

I am an 84-year-old, healthy, energetic, late dining, late retiring, late rising, non-smoking man looking only for a non-smoking, able-bodied man to share an outside cabin on Holland America's Amsterdam leaving from Seattle 6/29/12on 14-day cruise to Alaska and return. I am not looking for companionship, but if the cabin mate wants to dine together, that's fine. The per person double occupancy fare for the cheapest "full ocean view" cabin is $2599 plus $156.65 taxes/fees in category FF. I sought to use HA's "single partner program," but it costs more than the listed fare for any "full ocean view" cabin and won't specify a category, so you could spend an additional $260 (each) for an FF cabin under that program. Attractive itnerary is of course available on HA's website. I have visited Alaska three times by motorhome and would like to go another time by cruise ship.

Hey there Ken I hope all is well with you. I am also Ken And I was thinking about another Alaska for myself too. I did see a sailing that is round trip San Francisco on Princess 10 days for 11 for obstructed ocean view. I like the 14 day cruise too but the price differance makes it quite attractive to me as I live in San Francisco. Any chance your available to take this cruise instead of the 14 day 2500.00 dollar alternative?
thanks for your time Ken and I look forward to hearing from you

Thanks for asking. I prefer the HA cruise because being longer and leaving from & returning to Seattle, it spends more time in Alaska, stopping at ports that Princess does not, including Seward, Homer, Kodiak, and Sitka. (I have visted all previously, and have watched bears fish at Kodiak, but I might want to do that again. The only stop Princess makes that HA does not is Haines, and I have visited it, too.) Also, I have never cruised on Princess, but my impression is that it's more formal. (I do not like to dress up, so I much prefer Norwegian, but it only offers short Alaska cruises, and on HA on formal nights I can eat in the cafeteria where, on a previous cruise, the same food served in the dining room was available. That wasn't the case on Royal Caribbean--cafeteria food was distinctly inferior--and I don't know about Princess.)
