1. I cancel the cruise and get a refund and sulk a lot but save money.
2. I find someone else to go with me. The cruise is on Holland America and runs from October 4th to October 14th plus travel days. The itinerary is: Venice, Korcula, Dubrovnik, Cruise Ionian Sea, Thira, Rhodes, Kusadasi, Piraeus, Katakolon, Valletta, Cruise Adriatic Sea, and Venice. The total price for the 10 day cruise to Greece is $2600. If you don't live in the Seattle area, you will need to find a way to get here since the flight leaves from Seattle.
Anyone honestly, seriously interested? I can pay for the whole thing upfront with you paying me back in installments.
