Default Transatlantic Cruise this Fall...great price!

Hello,

I have booked a great transatlantic cruise, and I am looking for a cabin mate who would like to share a cabin, for the purpose of avoiding the expensive single supplement.

I booked a 17-day, 16-night transatlantic cruise on RCCL's luxurious "Mariner of the Seas", which will depart Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy, on Nov. 2, and conclude in Galveston, TX, on Nov. 18, 2012. Your total cost for this transatlantic cruise is a real cruise/travel "bargain". I am willing to offer a special, discounted price in order to avoid having to pay the expensive single supplement. Your total cost for this 17-day, 16-night transatlantic cruise, sharing a deluxe "balcony" cabin with me (platonic only), including airfare to Rome would be just $1599, plus $98 in gov't fees and taxes. I plan to depart the U.S. on October 29, and spend a few days in Rome prior to the cruise. If you would like to join me for a few days visit to Rome prior to our cruise, just let me know.

The cost of the "balcony" cabin alone at this time is $1999 per person---with NO expensive international airfare included in this price. If you accompany me on this cruise, your cost would be just $1599 plus $98 in gov't fees and taxes---INCLUDING airfare to Rome. This is a great "cruise and international airfare bargain"!

The "Mariner of the Seas" is the perfect cruise ship to take a transatlantic cruise, since this ship offers so many amenities. Some of the great amenities on the "Mariner of the Seas" include: an ice-skating rink (where professional ice-skaters perform, and those performers teach passengers how to ice skate during the days at sea); a miniature golf course; a golf simulator; a rock-climbing wall; an in-line skating rink (for "roller-blading"); a full-size basketball/volleyball court; a large fitness center; swimming pools; hot tubs; lots of bars and lounges which offer live entertainment; a large casino; and a movie theatre.

There are some wonderful ports-of-call on this transatlantic crossing:
Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy (one of the most historic and interesting cities in Europe);
Ajaccio, Corsica (a delightful island rarely visited by major cruise ships);
Palma de Majorca, Spain (a beautiful island, home of tennis star Rafael Nadal);
Cartagena, Spain, (one of the oldest cities in Europe, with great history and well-preserved "Roman ruins");
Lazarotte, Canary Islands (Canary Islands---top vacation destination for Europeans);
Tenerife, Canary Islands (capital of the Canary Islands and fantastic vacation destination)
Nassau, Bahamas (home to what is arguably the best resort in the world---the "Atlantis Resort"); and
Galveston (Houston), Texas (Houston is home to the NASA Johnson Space Center).

I have achieved "Diamond Plus" status (highest-attained status) with Royal Caribbean. The advantage to you is that my cabin mate will share most of the "Diamond Plus" perks, including unlimited free drinks (alcoholic and soft drinks) from 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm each day.

About me--I am a Caucasian, college-educated male, who enjoys traveling and meeting new people. I travel well with all types of people. I am "easy-to-get-to-know" and "easy-to-get-along-with". I am a non-smoker and a non-snorer. I am willing to travel with a smoker, provided there is no smoking in our cabin, and I can travel with those who snore as well. I am told that I am a great guy to travel with, as I am a good conversationalist (but also know when to be quiet as well), personable, interesting, and a fun guy. We can visit the ports-of-call together, or if you prefer, we can go our separate ways and simply share the cabin (platonic only).

Let me know (either way) if you would be interested in considering this cruise. If so, we can communicate more via email and phone. You may email me at: gholston1@yahoo.com or phone me at: 865-309-8497.

Look forward to your email reply,

C.R. Gholston

If you are a D+ I don't think that you can take other people into the Concierge or Diamond lounge if they don't have the same status as you!

On Celebrity it's possible with your RCI D+ status and you are automatically Elite and if that person share the same cabin it's possible, but not on Royal Caribbean.

this is correct. RCL revamped this policy 2 years ago. You can't bring your cabin guest in, but if you're smooth talker, then it can be done. it will help if your guest a physically fit female :-D
