Talking Help out a cruise virgin

Hi all

Greetings from Australia! I've just joined the forum and am totally new to cruising. Have yet to go on a cruise but am hoping to change that this year.

I really want to go on the RSVP Alaska cruise in July. My friend who was due to come along can't make it so I am now flying solo.

As a single cruiser do you guys have any hints or pearls of wisdom you can share? I will need to find a cabin mate to share the cost - how would I go about doing that?

Any advice greatly appreciated. Help me lose my cruise cherry!

thanks

You should try posting this in the main forum here:

You've posted in the roll call section, which is for people who have already booked a cruise and looking for others on the same sailing.

Welcome to Cruise Critic! ATF directed you to the discussion thread for that cruise and you can ask just about anything there - and get most questions answered.

A couple of other thoughts...

- I thought RSVP had guaranteed shares, but could be wrong on this
- Try posting in the thread for that specific cruise - you get people who read them before booking, so you may find a roommate that way

Your thread subject title and initial comment are brilliant - hope you find a roommate with an equally good sense of humor. Cheers!

FYI Accoring to CC guidelines you cannot look for cabin shares here. Just saying.
