Hi, I'm new to this website. Actually I'm new to cruising as well. I'm an African American female in my mid thirties, single and straight. I'm seeking a cabin mate. The cruise was initally supposed to be a couples thing that I was attending with some coworkers, well, since we started planning the cruise, I've become single and I don't want to pay the higher single rate. I don't need a companion because my friends will be on board and I can hang with them. The trip is scheduled to depart Galveston on Thursday, November 3, 2011 and return the following Monday. I would hate to cancel my trip.
