I think it is a great idea. I have cruised RCI and Carnival before solo. It is always less than the price for two since you only pay port charges, taxes and fees for one. SO it is less. My next cruise is $637 for two in my OV cabin or $488 if I go by myself. Still two fares but one set of port charges taxes and fees. In this case amount to $149PP and the fare was $249 PP. SO I pay $249 X 2 plus $149 by myself and $249 X2 plus $149 X 2 if I find a broad to go with me.
