Hey guys! I’m not sure if these kinds of posts are allowed here, but I couldn’t find anything in the guidelines against them, so here goes:
I’m a 26-year-old (male) Californian and software developer who’s been traveling all over Europe for the past year. I also happen to really hate flying. On the way here, I took a boat; it was the off-season for cruises, so I managed to snag a really cheap ticket for a single cabin. Now it’s getting time to go home, and I want to take a boat back. Unfortunately, the prices are quite a bit higher this time of year, meaning I can’t just swallow up the single supplement as before, so I was wondering if anybody else had plans to head in that direction in May or June. Looking at the current Cunard prices, it would come to $800/person (plus taxes and gratuities) in a double inside cabin. Sure, it ain’t cheaper than flying, but you get to relax for a few days, contemplate the journey, and get fat from all the free food. Bonus points if you’re self-employed, since it’s basically an excuse to work on your projects away from all distraction for a whole week!
