Once more on the Breeze, a back to back with a gal I'd met online a couple years ago, and then met her in person (briefly) on a cruise this spring.
We met at the hotel in Miami, chatted a bit, slept, and got ready for the cruise in the morning
Onboard quickly (I'm Platinum), cabin ready quickly
Met some friends right off and spent a good share of time as part of a new "group"

We ate most if not all evening meals together, attended some functions together, spent some time in the piano bar, but for the most part, it was like cruising with a relative (one you like), we were pretty independent
Although our cruising personalities are different, we got along very well in my opinion
Granted, we are both very experienced travelers and I think that may have contributed to the success of our sharing, as it's often a matter of tolerance

She seldom drank alcohol and most often was in the room when I came in at night, and I don't think I ever woke her coming in
Would cruise with Aviva again without thinking twice

And for those whom care, "no, we didn't..."
