Their pool deck layout is not conductive to see, be seen or talk to other people and groups.

Because NCL is anytime dining only, it is also not very solo-friendly. However, I found it easier to meet and talk to people on NCL than on RCCL.

On RCCL I felt alone. On Carnival I never feel alone. In fact, more often than not, a solo with a little personality becomes a bit of a celebrity on the ship because everyone (crew included) wants to make sure you are o.k., have everything you need and are not lonely.
another issue is pricing ! RCCL, Princess, and Celebrity all wish to hit me for 200% rate. No thanks !
You are correct, Carnival does adknowledge it's single/ solo patrons.
