Bottom line: I love to cruise! I'm booked on MSC Poesia's re-positioning cruise departing Genoa, Italy on Nov 11, 2012 and arriving Ft Lauderdale on Nov 27th. This is not just a typical Atlantic crossing - the ports of call include Barcelona, Casablanca, Madeira, Barbados, Guadeloupe, St Thomas and Freeport. The cost for an oceanview is in the $900 range.
I'm also booked on the Nov 2, 2012, 7-night sailing of the MSC Sinfonia from Genoa to Rome, Salerno, Tunisia, Ibiza, Palma and Marseille and return to Genoa on Nov 9th. My plan is to take the train to San Remo on the 9th and return to Genoa on the 11th and board the MSC Poesia. You can walk from the train station to the pier. The cost of the 7-nt MSC Sinfonia cruise is approx $400. Yes, that low!
I'm a straight male, a fit 66 and retired. Don't smoke, very neat and is the consummate tourist! I'm neither needy or demanding....just want to cut the cost and avoid paying single supplement.
