    Does anyone want to be roommates for the SNC cruise? It's the only way I could afford to do it and I really want to go!

Has anyone thought about spending the night before the cruise at a hotel in Miami?
On the cruise website there's a link for a hotel they say they've negotiated a rate of 149.00 & will hold 4 people.
I'm getting there the nite before, not taking any chances, & I'm looking for roommates!
I've heard you have to be careful where you stay, so I don't want to take any chances landing in the wrong place as I've never been before.
Anyone wanting the share a room, contact me! Email me at italian.diva.donna@gmail.com, here, or on facebook.

@Kris: I decided to go with the find a roommate option. I have no clue who I will be bunking with. Sorry! Lynette asked me the same thing on Facebook earlier today.

If any Chasers need a place to stay (instead of paying for a hotel), I am about a 2 hr drive from Miami. You are all welcome to fly in here the day before then we can drive to Miami together!

Amanda, have you found a roommate yet? I am able to go too! My parents are giving me the trip for my 40th bday this year and I need a roommate in order to afford it!!!

Still looking for someone to be a roommate. Also, on the reservations, when the page asking how many people the reservation is for does each person say 1 and then select that they want to be matched with another single traveler?

Just found out I am able to go! Woohoo!

Well the roommate situation in my case will determine whether or not I go.

I'm in the same situation as yourself, Amanda! I'm checking again to see if anyone from the West Coast will be going on this cruise! I can't afford my deposit yet...

I wouldn't worry too much about roomies right now as if it comes down to it, the cruise line will match us up with another Chaser. It says they'll match us by age, within a 5 year range I think it was, so don't let not having someone from the beginning stop you from making your reservation when you have all your other ducks in a row.
I'm sure they'd let up match up ourselves later if that comes up, but someone could email them to make sure it's possible.

@Beckerlynn: Exactly!

@beckerlynn that is absolutely right :D

If I can do this, I would be going by myself. I would love to have a roomie. And someone to be buddies with for the extra activites. But if all participants are Chasers, that would be like one huge family, right?

I'm looking to be a roomie. I'm the only one I know that's going so if anyone needs an extra person to fill up their room, just let me know! :)

@Paula that is absolutely right!! I've done this i don't know how many times, and have paid over several months, and what's nice, everything will be paid for by the time the trip is here, so if you don't want to spend anything extra while on the trip, you don't have to.

One of the greatest things about a cruise is you can pay it out over time instead of all at one time...think about it...and then, if at all possible, go for it!

Not to mention, I've been on this ship before, and will be on it this January also.. this makes me laugh. lol

we're looking for a 3rd person for our cabin, we would probably be booking in late January.

I'd love to go, but I just don't see how I could. It's a lot of money right now, and I'm scared to death of flying! They'd have to knock me out to get me on the plane in the first place! lol If there are still tickets left in February, after taxes come back, I may be able to get one, and take the train into FL!

Great idea Carla! Yes, anyone in general who is looking for a roommate, feel free to post here!

This would be a good place for anyone who needs a roommate to post? One thread where people can connect.

Still trying to get funds organized but I'll let you know if it turns out I can go!

I'll take you up on it.

Amanda_5's picture

I know. I just called my dad to ask him if he could help me fund this (I don't work). He said he would think about it. I pitched it as a birthday present (birthday is in May) so at least he's thinking about it!

I am searching my brain for how I would be able to go- lots of variables- can I get time off work, who will take care of the kids for the 3 school days, money. I really wish there were doing this in the summer!
