I can get a balcony room which is larger the usual from what I have seen for $500 to $700 per person. With no rental car fees, food bills at all, entertainment since all entertainment on the boat is free except the casino...Cruises are a steal. 24/7 free room service, go to the movies in your PJ's and get free snacks. Eat just about anything at just about anytime...any place on the boat. I usually get a tray for my day time meals, find a great leather chair with a huge ocean view pic window in the library or scout a pretty non-used area outdoors and go there....most nights I pic a deck chair, bring a blanket and pillow and sleep beneath the stars while we sail to the next port so I am never in the room.
Give me an email shout if you would want to try and plan a share situation. I am a 42 year old single female...I have a grown son who just got back from Iraq and a 14 yr old girl. Neither get to come with mommy this time.
Also....if you hate to bargain or don't know how and want a professional bargain finder/closer in the street markets/straw markets/jewelery/leather goods etc... I always help any people I meet who would like me to go to the street markets with them...I even bargain for cab fair...part of the reason I don't do the ship arranged adventures. I can get them at a much better rate.
Anyway...onto a little shopping. I probably need to sail out of S CA and would arrange everything as I am retired....with input from a fellow traveler. firstname.lastname@example.org (mark as urgent with SUBJECT=VACATION INTEREST? or something equally obvious....I get so many emails they get lost.
